... for some of you, not me ;)

I've got me a new system (it was kinda time to put my old p3-550/Geforce1
system to sleep... I have to be prepared for Aquanox :)).

My new system (AthlonC 1200, 133 FSB, 512 MB DDR ram, SCSI DVD and
CD rom dive, ATA100 IBM 60 GB harddrive, SB live, GeForce3) is sooooo fast
with psx emulation, I don't have any chance to make speed optimizations
anymore ;););)

FVP and even the easteregg blurring... everything is running full speed all
the time... soft gpu is freaking fast... pfff... and to play in OGL with
300 fps, wow :)

Well pete this is surely a good news for U that U upgraded your PC......but it is a howly Bad news for us.........Man we expect so much from your plugin.Now you will be working on the optimization which will be very high and can only be operated on system like yours.Like your easter Egg.........it sucks on my PC.But on your U get 300 fps............howly shit.............!

What I want is that I want to make a request that please......keep our slower systems in notice.Like u can see my specs below.......!ok ok I will upgrade my PC.........but that will be after about 4 to 5 months.

So take care man..........we expect more speed.........!

Since developing plugins is your hobby........so I can only request U......!

By the way U now have some Kick ASS PC.......hehe...........;)

Pete, dude, you almost gave me a heart attack.
When I saw the title of the post (Bad News), combined with the thread (Hardware), I thought that your computer's hosed or something, and you won't be able to continue development for a while....... glad to know I'm WAYYYY off! :)

Anyways, have fun with the great new system.

PS: Love what you've done so far with the plugins.... I'm an all-Pete-plugin guy (graphics, cdrom, and sound).
:D

Great system Pete. I know what you mean about speed. I have an Athlon T-Bird 1.2ghz (1200) at 266 FSB. Plus I'm still using my GEForce 2 GTS until I am able to get a GEForce 3. All my games run at full speed w/nary a slowdown in sight. This is especially true now that I have DX 8.1 and Detonator 14.10 drivers installed.
Keep up the great work and I'll be hoping for more great things from you in the future.
sincerely,
sx/amiga

ooookaaaaay :D
somebody said it finally. i knew you guys couldn't hide your feelings forever, hahahahaha.

Btw, i'm an anti-Pete guy, i use none of his plugins... dont get me wrong, those are good pieces of work, and i respect the guy. Just that i happen to have no reason to use them :p

I did cheer for Pete's spu for a very brief moment, during the recent Iori vs Pete spu update race ;)

So anyways, congrats Pete about the new system.

takwu......let me tell u something.In my previous post I didn't mean to say that I was sexually attracted to Pete..........Oh My God What I am Saying..............hehe..........!

The truth is that everyone over here loves Pete for his great work.I was just sort of showing some envy over his new system.

Unfortunately that would be exactly what has just happened to me... Power surge:(. Thank goodness I have a spare.

Couple of pci slots got fried, modem's blown and the cdr is history.

Have just ordered replacements. Bang goes all the cash I earned this summer.

:heh: Well actually I have... The cdr is 32x 10x 12x w/ burnproof and a copy of nero 5. The mobo will do for now as the new modem is external.

Woaw...

Nice specs, Pete... :)

It's good for the fun part (to be able to play the latest games/N64 emu/...), but not really for the programming part...

I'll stay with my good "old" K6-2-400 and my P120...
otherwise, I would end up making a shitty program like Windows
Mediaplayer 7... :(

But it's also nice to have a fast computer to see how your own progs run at max speed :):)
