  1. Except USB is possibly the worst type of connection one could use for GPUs that is still in use today. Even USB3 isn't all that good due to massive delays. Though Thunderbolt should be close to good enough for external GPUs. Don't expect much better speeds than from low-end GPU, though. While it is faster than USB the thoughput and latency still suck bigtime compared to PCIe To be honest any integrated GPU is terribad. AMD ones might have somewhat better computational capabilities but their memory bandwidth is just a tiny fraction of midrange GPUs making using high-ish resolution for screen/textures a very bad idea.
  2. Once games get targeted for next-gen consoles I wouldn't be surprised to see 50GB installs as regular occurrence.
  3. I'm a complete noob when it comes to MC modding but I'd consider myself good enough coder in general. Today, just for fun, I tried to port HungerOverhaul to 1.6.4 and got a (small?) problem. The mod has full source available but depends on Pam's harvest craft and that one doesn't have either source or API. I've tried all sorts of things I could come up with to no result. Initially I just added as an external lib (to get HC to compile) + added to mcp/jars/mods-> 2013-10-25 19:36:22 [sEVERE] [ForgeModLoader] Caught exception from pamharvestcraft java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: field_76254_j at assets.pamharvestcraft.BlockPamCrop.<init>(BlockPamCrop.java:44) at assets.pamharvestcraft.PamHarvestCraft.preInit(PamHarvestCraft.java:831) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0(Native Method) at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source) at sun.reflect.DelegatingMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source) at java.lang.reflect.Method.invoke(Unknown Source) .... I've tested HC with the same forge version as I'm using for developing and it loads up just fine. I guess it's erroring as it assumes obfuscated MC? Next I tried to decompile it with both but it gets decompiled jd-gui and fernflower included in MCP but both caused HC to have a ton of problems as it was using obfuscated MC names. I tried to run BON and deobfuscate to srg but that didn't seem to help at all. So, anyone has any idea how I might get it working?
  4. That laptop on amazon has two SSDs + 1 normal HDD. SSDs can be tiny, really tiny. Even at that size (2x128GB). Also, 24GB of RAM isn't too much. My laptop has 16G and running out is quite common during work. Running virtual machines also gobbles up a ton of it. If it supported more RAM my employee wouldn't mind upgrading to 32G, unfortunately it doesn't.
  5. Talking specifically about macbooks, only the top model has a non-integrated GPU meaning all the rest with their intel IGP's don't really qualify even as a "moderate specced" for gaming.
  6. The ONLY macbook worthy of any sort of "gaming" title is the most expensive one that has NV GPU and costs $2.6k. Anything else is just useless waste of space for gaming. Also, even with that you will not be able to play on the monitor's native resolution with any reasonable performance.
  7. mDiyo is at it again. He and Greg had an agreement he can modify Gregs code "As long as it is constructive and reasonable in some way, and doesn't intentionally break things" http://forum.industrial-craft.net/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=7156&pageNo=1192 GT has an oredict scanner in his mod that autodetects everything in oredict and builds recipes for various machines out of that automagically. To make life easier he made a filter to say in console if some entry in the dict doesn't follow good practices of using oredict. For example: 2013-10-20 08:49:36 [iNFO] [sTDERR] WARNING: 'stoneRod' is an invalid OreDictionary Name. The Name doesn't fit to the Type of Item and/or doesn't follow a proper OreDictionary Convention. If you are the Owner of the Mod who adds this Item, please do the following: 2013-10-20 08:49:36 [iNFO] [sTDERR] Put the 'Rod' in the beginning of the Name to get 'rodStone' 2013-10-20 08:49:36 [iNFO] [sTDERR] Private Prefixes could also be a solution if the first Suggestion doesn't apply. In that case the suggestion for the name is 'ForgeMicroblock:stoneRod' don't forget to insert the ':' inbetween the Mod ID and OreDict Name, that is the most important part. 2013-10-20 08:49:36 [iNFO] [sTDERR] If you are not the Owner then report it to the Owner of the Mod, which the Item belongs to. Notice that this is merely a notice and a suggestion, not an error or anything. mDyio didn't like to see his wrongly registered stuff show up in forge log and supposedly had people report that to him as error*s. His "solution" was to break Gregs oredict scanner: https://github.com/SlimeKnights/TinkersConstruct/blob/master/src/tconstruct/plugins/misc/PeaceOfMind.java *) Looking in github and TiC thread, there was a combined total of one report about it since GT added the scanner about a month ago. He is just looking for excuses to screw with GT. Using his mod with that change with GT causes the game to crash. He broke the terms of agreement Greg had with him. [edit] Crashing was apparently fixed. Now it only forcibly prevents GT from supporting any mod that gets loaded after TiC. Obviously he also didn't add any config option for turning his hack off. [edit2] Apparently not only will the TiC change make GT not support any mods loaded after TiC it also completely breaks GT recipes making the mod unplayable. [edit3] According to #TinkersConstruct logs mDyio planned to cause GT silently not load on 15'th of October. On 19'th he found out about the oredict scanner existing in the first place. This means he had the plan to screw with GT long before the oredict thing was even brought to his attention. Also, there were exactly zero bugreports that had any mentions about GT in past week. It's just a searched excuse for TiC devs to screw with GT and its users.
  8. Could be because GT uses meta tile entities for it's machines to save on block IDs. I know his machines aren't movable with gravity gun either. For the longest time there were also problems with GT machine textures where the machines would render as machine casings for ages and would actually crash if people opened their GUI before they were properly initialized. For some that took tens of minutes. Though that problem should be fixed for a couple of months now.
  9. That makes no sense. Java is a language, not game engine. To reiterate for n'th time, the awful performance of MC does not come from using Java. It comes from bad programming in general. It's probably even easier to write bad code in C++ than in java. Also, creating multiplatform C++ stuff is far from difficult. The difficulty of porting is blown way out of proportion.
  10. except that he'd also need to swap out the CPU and most likely motherboard as well. Basically it wouldn't be much more expensive to replace the whole thing (again).
  11. TF2 is a game from ~6 years ago and wasn't really taxing on systems even back then. MC basically runs only on CPU and doesn't care much about GPU. I sure hope you don'y plan on playing anything too recent on the machine and I find it really odd that no one told you the machine is using the very lowest end of low-end CPUs made for PCs that one could get. Sorry that I wasn't here earlier but for €500 you could have got a MUCH better gaming PC than that.
  12. So, how well does that machine of yours run any newer games and at what resolution?
  13. They very well might have worked on it in parallel but their announcement did come out quickly after technic platform was announced. Never mind that FTB "custom modpacks" feature was anything but what the name would suggest.
  14. Do tell what recipe did he forcibly override that had a config option already. GT makes changes to exactly three mod recipes besides IC2 (of what it's pretty much a total conversion of and has configs on his side) and vanilla (again, configs). These are BC quarry (configurable), UE plates (with full approval of UE authors, for improving compatibility and with configs) and forestry bronze (to fix an exploit and combined with forestry conf can be turned off).
  15. It took about two months of complaining by players for mDiyo to add config option for fortune smelting. During big part of that time he had a message complaining about GT being the fault of dupe.
