Can you suggest any forgotten games to play? I know there are so many of them yet they're rarely mentioned because the installation processes get more and more complicated. I appreciate any ideas; fortunately a freelance position of cheap custom essay writer grants me enough time to play computer games.

So I recently played through Ripper again, and afterwards decided that I wanted to try and get my hands on the video files to perform a fan re-edit of certain scenes. I managed to copy all of the files from the discs onto my harddrive, and I can now read both the .wav and .smk files. However the .avi files don't seem to be readable by anything, I've even tried using a codec analyser but it doesn't throw up any results at all.

Does anyone have any idea how I would go about making the files usable? Non of my conversion software will run it either before anyone suggests it.

The most important question in the gaming world is; which has better graphics? However, it is very difficult to answer. We are saying difficult because if you compare graphics of the current Xbox 360 with the PS3, it will vary from game-to-game, and generally the difference is not that great. It's all down to the way games are made.

The one way to judge the graphics of both consoles is to look at what[url=https://www.google.co.uk/]games[/url] going on under the hood -checking out the GPU, the CPU and the core system memory that run the show. Xbox One vs Sony PS4 - Controllers Microsoft [answer](http://www.google.com) done few minor redesign & Kinect redesign. Microsoft claims that they have made more forty improvements. However, most of the changes are related to ergonomics. An integrated battery compartment, new triggers and Wi-Fi Direct will come with the new controller.

PS4 - Moderate redesign and integrated Move Sony [https://www.google.com answer] done some serious changes here. Now, there will be a move light on the controller's rear, which will function like the Move motion control 'sticks'. There is also a share button which lets you share game moments instantly. Sony has given a completely new look to Sixaxis. However, the shape of the controllers is much the same as the current-model. the users will get more control with [url=http://www.google.co.uk]answer[/url] track pad that sits between the D-pad and the buttons.

Xbox ONE Hardware

The Xbox One processor will be based on Jaguar architecture from AMD. It will use an APU with eight x86-64 cores clocked at 1.75 GHz that comes with 8 GB of DDR3 RAM with a memory bandwidth of 68.3 GB/s. However, according to some reports, 3 GB of RAM will be reserved for the operating system and apps for games.

The memory subsystem will also come with an additional 32 MB of "embedded static" RAM, or eSRAM, with a memory bandwidth of 102 GB/s,The console has a a Blu-ray Disc optical drive and a 500 GB non-replaceable hard drive.The graphics processing unit (GPU) will run on AMD GCN. It will have a total of 768 cores running at 853 MHz providing an estimated peak theoretical power of 1.31 TFLOPS.The gaming console will feature Wi-Fi Direct, Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11n wireless for networking.The Xbox One will support 4K resolution (3840×2160) (2160p) video output and 7.1 surround sound. The Xbox One will have an HDMI 1.4 for both input and output, however, it won't support composite or component video.

playStation 4 Hardware

The heart of both the console is similar. Both have a processor developed by AMD. The PlayStation 4 will also use an AMD processor. The PS4's CPU consists of eight x86-64 cores packed with 8 GB of GDDR5 memory which will give the console considerable longevity.The system can run at a maximum clock speed of 2.75 GHz. The PS4 will also come with a secondary custom chips. This chip basically performs tasks associated with downloading, uploading, and social gameplay.

The PS4 will support photos and videos at 4K resolution, but it is not expected to be able to render games beyond 1080p. The console will have a 500 GB hard drive for additional storage, which can be upgraded by the user.For networking, the PlayStation 4 will support Bluetooth, 2USB 3.0 ports https://www.google.com and WiFi. Users will be able to include an auxiliary port for connection to the PS4's Camera,A mono headset, which can be plugged into the DualShock 4, will come bundled with the system.

Who is more powerful?

The simple answer is the PS4. Look into the technical reasons mentioned above, it is clear that the PS4 is more powerful.Do you [games][1] the news that the Sony PS4 is (almost) categorically more powerful than the Xbox One is one of the reasons why the PS4 pre-order sold out before the Xbox One's?

However, it's worth noting that it's likely there will only be minor differences in titles released for both consoles. There's little benefit for a developer in making one version a good deal prettier than the other.

I came upon this, and though i have played the game in the past, i can't recall if this was included. Check out the 2nd page of the catalog at the lower right box. Anybody know what is up with this?

Parameters in DOS must be typed in one command (one line).
Darksun laucher "DARKSUN.BAT" is the batch file - runs much more other command lines.

You can try this:

Example (1):
DARKSUN.BAT -K911

Example (2):
DSUN.EXE -K911

all commands in one line

You should also be aware that anything to the right of the # to the end of the line is considered a comment as is totally ignored by DOSBox when it loads.

CALL DARKSUN.BAT
#-K911

no cheats were activated

Yes you're right. All commands needed to run the game are written in DOSBox config file. In my packages, this file is named as "dosbox.play.conf".

Edit this file, go to end and in [autoexec] section find the line "pause".
Now you can comment all lines below the "pause" typing the hash "#" to begin of the line. Or you can left some lines uncommented like "CD" (change directory) etc.
Save.
If you launch the installed game (package) now, you have the command line where can be typed any DOS command...
