  1. I've been playing the Secret of Mana remake. I used to play the original to death as a kid so I came in aware that I would be wearing nostalgia goggles.

     

    But geez,I think some people who played this game have theirs permanently glued to their face.

  2. Dose any one know how to remove this???

    https://appuals.com/how-to-remove-padlock-or-lock-icon-from-files-on-windows-10/ See if that helps you.
  3. DPI settings

    It depends on your mouse. Some have only one DPI setting you can't change. Some have hard presets you can change via one of the buttons. Some you can modify through software you get from the manufacturer.
  4. DPI settings

    No. The mouse sensitivity options in Windows scales the data it receives from the mouse. A high DPI mouse will translate small physical movements into large software ones. Mouse sensitivity will tune it further. So let's say if you move the mouse an inch and it makes the cursor travel 400 pixels in its raw data form, the mouse sensitivity option in the middle setting will scale that to say 200 pixels.
  5. Is it possible to fake Computer's Specs?

    You can by modifying the firmware in some hardware. Plenty of eBay scammers sell old NVIDIA hardware with a hacked firmware to report they're newer, such as in:
  6. CPU graphics?

    It should handle it on its own. I believe the option in modern systems that let you select which one to use is more of a "don't waste your time figuring it out, here's what it should be." Worst comes to worse, you can reset the UEFI settings and it'll automatically figure it out.
  7. I've managed to play GTA:V more or less fine over my NAS, as it's connected via an SMB server so it can show up as network attached drive on Windows. It wasn't bad over GbE since GbE provides more than enough bandwidth. Surprisingly, 2x2 802.11ac was not that bad, provided there was a solid signal. 802.11n was laughably out of the question. If it's over USB, as long as it's a 3.0 drive, it'll run more or less as if it were internal. Yes I know there's more overhead with USB, but in practical terms it'd be nitpicking to complain.
  8. SSD temps?

    If you're worrying about life span, I've had an NVMe drive in probably one of the worst possible conditions (sandwiched under the motherboard) for over two years and its performance hasn't really budged. It'll sit at around 40C-50C. NVMe drives won't really heat up on their own unless you're giving it something to do constantly. Could it be better? Sure. But I haven't seen a formal study done on life span and temperature so I can't really say how much better it would be.
  9. Benchmarking software

    You can run 3DMark for free in a limited form. I believe it only allows for the default settings, which is what everyone else uses anyway.
  10. PS5 Specs

    I don't think it was really breaking any perceived limitations moreso than asking "is it really that important?" Like the reason why most NES games for a while would only scroll in the horizontal or vertical direction was likely because game developers didn't want people to see graphical glitching from the loading seam. See:
  11. I should add something to my post in my time of doing what I suggested: If you've archived the game, depending on what happened between now and then, Steam may just say "screw it" and redownload the game. Or at least, it'll appear to do that. I noticed this with my archived copy of DOOM, which was archived before the Denuvo removal update. Steam will still run the first-time setup if you're transferring the game to a new PC. It may still do it on the same PC as it figures "wait, the game is not where it was, obviously it was reinstalled"
  12. does this need heatsink?

    A good one will set you back about $30 USD.
  13. The article is correct, but there's a way you can skip everything past 2 if you want things to go faster Copy and paste the game's folder in the original steamapps/common directory to the new one. Go to the game's page in the Steam store and note the URL. There should be a number at the end. For example, Skyrim's URL is store.steampowered.com/app/489830/. So if you're moving Skyrim, note the 489830 Go to the original steamapps directory. Find the appmanifest file that has the same number as the game's page URL. So for Skyrim, this should be something like appmanfiest489830.manifest Copy that appmanifest file to the new steamapps directory Restart Steam if you had it running. The game should still be there and installed, as if nothing happened. To re-iterate: The game lives in the steamapps/common folder The appmanifest file lives in the steamapps folder
  14. Did you not see what that block of text was pointing to? In case you need a reminder, it was to answer this question:
  15. Is there away to delete stock windows apps?

    Some of those you can "remove" by going to Control Panel -> Add or Remove Windows Features. I say "remove" because the applications will linger in the system somewhere in some inactive or unusable state. i.e., it's the same as the "Disable" function in Android for apps. However, I don't recommend outright deleting anything that Windows comes with by default. Disabling them through OS provided means is fine. Otherwise all developers assume you're using the default settings and modifying the system in non-natively provided ways can lead to odd errors. So unless you're basically running a "frozen" build, I don't recommend deleting system things. https://www.howtogeek.com/224798/how-to-uninstall-windows-10s-built-in-apps-and-how-to-reinstall-them/ However this doesn't actually remove them from the disk. A lot of them live in the system folder.
