>>70555442Made a thread about it but I'll ask here as well.How do I avoid piracy strikes on Kodi? Some people have gotten them and I don't want them. What addons are JUST streaming and which addons are torrentstreams, so I know which to use and avoid.
On an extremely low level, how are computers able to form functions such as square rooting? Basically I'm writing a program, and at some point I'm going to need to square root some numbers, how can I write my own function to do this in C++? How is it done with just addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division? (I'll use the cmath when I actually need to write that part of the program, because it'll be more optimized than anything I write, but right now I'm just curious about how it works.)
When is NVIDIA going to get off their asses and support Wayland? It's been years now, and I really want to fall for the Wayland meme, but NVIDIA cards don't work with it.
>>70555681There are many techniques for computing square root approximations. Some of it is weird math, but Newton's method is an easy example.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methods_of_computing_square_roots
I came home and the internet didn't connect on my win10 desktop. It was a dns issue and when I tried to switch back to default dns an error popped up and didn't save my changes not even in safe mode. I tried deleting all the adapters so windows would reinstall them but it just won't show any network adapters now. I restarted and it did not reinstall them. At my wits end honestly, I don't want to reinstall windows over this.
>>70556309Type in "network proxy settings" in the search bar, scroll down, and make it look like mine.
>>70556573Mine is the same as yours, no network adapters showing up at all though and the properties in device manager say there's a code 56 error... Just realized I have a system restore I can do, I thought I disabled that. I'll try it now.

Probably going to take some flak for this question, but nevertheless. I have the opportunity to study computer science at a top university. I've been looking at the course structure at this, and various other universities, and I'm kind of surprised at just how theoretical these courses are. I knew there was a large theoretical /mathematical component, but it is starting to hit me just how much of this stuff there is.I am good at maths, but I do not enjoy it. I really want to learn programming, but in some computer science courses it really seems like there isn't all that much of it.Does doing a comp sci degree really make you a great programmer? Have to be honest, this theoretical shit doesn't interest me much... But if it really does have a purpose, and if it will actually help me to become a good programmer then I will do it. I'm just worried that I'll complete the degree, at great cost and stress, only to find that the practical aspect is so lacking that it will actually hinder me rather than help. I really want to program and it just seems like the courses at lower ranked universities have more interesting, practical course content. But if the best universities have structured their courses like this, then I take it that they must produce the best programmers? Does any current /past students have any advice on this issue? I guess I feel conflicted between computer science and straight up software engineering...
>>70556719Before I read this I was messing around with things and saw that my internet was connected, I guess the dns went back up, but I still still can't change it without getting an error message. If the dns goes down again I'm right back where I started.
what's that website that checks android apps and tells you stuff about it like permissions and trackers maybe
>>70556745As far as a CS course goes, I'm not going to attest to that, but if you want to be a decent programmer, dive in, learn a language, start a project, try and keep it reasonable, but part of the fun is learning a mountain of things to accomplish a task you had almost no business aiming for, and the rush of finally doing it. If you want a good language to start with, you can't go wrong with C, but I would reccomend C++ (once you know C++, you can pretty easily mentally switch between the two) I can explain a lot more if you want, but I don't want to give you a wall of text if it's not relevant to you, if you want to know more, just ask.
>>70555348What the fuck with this gay faggot shit?
>>70555348Is there any way to completely clone my C: drive and another partition to an external hard drive? Do I have to partition the external drive first?Is there any /g/ approved software for the task of cloning a drive ready to be inserted into a new machine?
>>70557395Making an IMG file of your drive would allow you to completely copy it and burn it to another drive, you don't have to worry about formatting, as when you burn it to a new drive, the IMG contains instructions, including reformatting the drive to match its requirements, the link below has tools for creating and burning IMG files.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMG_(file_format)
>>70557395>>70557501Although I'm not sure if you could limit burning it to another drive to just 1 partition, so be aware of that, before you accidentally steamroll over the external drives other partitions. (You could also just put the img file in a partition, without burning it, that wouldn't destroy anything, but the data would just be packed up and in the IMG file, but it still works as a backup if you need to burn it to a hard drive)
>>70557395use macrium reflect (free) or clonezilla if you are feeling adventurous
>>70557501>>70557540>>70557542I'm looking to create a version of my own current drive, on an external drive - that I can then organise properly (my current is an absolute mess, but I cannot afford to make edits on this machine as of now) before cloning the newly organised version into a new PC with m.2 SSD's.I tried just copying them from my HDD to the external HDD using Windows Explorer, but encountered issues with a single file, and then filenames being too long - will these softwares work with those restrictions?The external drive is a WD and I am looking at their software - does anyone have any experience with that?
>>70555348Which antivirus' PAID version is the best? I just want an active scanner for my new PC. My browsing habits are safe and doesn't necessitate protection, but I just want an active layer of protection for my whole PC.I'm gravitating towards Malwarebytes as it's cheap and if its free version is so good, then so should it's paid version, right?. Unless there's something better? (NOD32, McAfee, Norton...etc.)>inb4 paying for software

>>70555348if i add some YT channel to my RSS feed instead of subscribing (because i don't want to access with my gmail) does google get my data in the same way as if i actually browsed YT?t.y. :3
>>70559292Yes, however the usage of other monitors is usually quite minimal.
>>70559510I would assume the GPU that renders any particular program is dependant on whether it's displayed on a monitor hooked up to that particular GPU. Could screen capture encoding be done by a separate GPU? In any case, my appreciations for your reply.
i'm fucking around with python at work, is there any hope of me pip installing a few things with no admin rights and behind a firewall?
>>70559596>is dependant on whether it's displayed on a monitor hooked up to that particular GPUBy default yes. You can sometimes set an application to work through a particular GPU, like that shit they used last year to make Freesync work on Nvidia by pumping it over an AMD gpu, but it tends to be glitchy. If you're processing something instead of displaying it, you shouldn't have a problem. Usually if you're not having a GPU do its own screencap, you're having the CPU do it. CPUs produce better encodes. Although the pro streamers actually output the whole thing to a second PC designed for that purpose, which needs a capture card but not a dedicated GPU.

I'd had a 1TB WD drive sit at 1 Current and 1 Uncorrectable Sector Count for quite a while, it worked fine and I was just keeping an eye on it. Yesterday CPSC jumped to 20 and then to 43 while I was doing a panic backup. Still at 43 for now.I'm sure as fuck replacing it now because it's at 52k+ hours anyway, but do you think I should bother zeroing it and keeping it on the side for non-essential stuff, or is it going to shit itself soon?
>>70559828You mean 'Fuck off pedo NINJA faggot'
My friend's SSD keeps disconnecting for whatever reason, which causes the PC to freeze, and sometimes after reboot it doesn't show in the BIOS. Is it a signal that it's dying? Or could it be the sata controller? Crystal Disk Info shows that the SSD is OK.
>>70559907How about connect that ssd to other computer? But I think it's a sign of dying. Backup the data inside asap.
>>70559834> I should bother zeroing itYes.> is it going to shit itself soonYes.
>>70559670wew. Whats the error message?
>>70560009Yeah, I tried that too, I forgot it. It worked fine but I didn't tried for much longer.
My PC blue-screened on my twice in 2 weeks when shutting it down. It now takes forever to download stuff and to get to the desktop after entering the password when compared to before.

Things go wrong with PCs over time, slowdowns, bsod, weird problems and you need to format and reinstall windows and it’s all fixed but what actually happens? I don’t get why it just shits itself over time. I installed windows 10 on a laptop my mother is using that was so slow it was literally unusable before and the difference was day and night.
>>70560609>windowsYou answered your own question.
>>70560573It's not like I'm just going to trash it right away. But yeah, I suppose I should do that now.
>>70555348My memory (G.Skill 3200 FlareX 14-14-14 4x8GB) seems to have some issues. I got the occasional crash before, but I never thought much of it.Recently I did a memtest84 test and noticed a handful of errors occured (always with the highest bit, in case that matters)Tried some shit to fix it, but upping voltage seemed to make it worse, so now I just run at profile 1/2933, which is a shame for this high grade memory.The thing is, I don't know what dimm(s) are causing the problem, or how to establish this based on memory addresses f.e..Preferably I just want to fix it with the least possible speed loss (changing RAS/CAS timing perhaps?). I'm not a fan of returning the memory only to hear they can't find a problem, etc. Been there before. Shit can take ages.Any tips welcome.
no response in fglt, so I'll post here tooWhich conf file sets the updating frequency of the monitor in a Debian/wayland/KDE/kwin system?I tried to play a game via q4wine, but it immediately froze and now my monitor fails to display anything and just says "The current input timing is not supported by the monitor display. Please change your input timing"I have already tried rebooting, replugging the monitor, and googling led me to delete '~/.local/share/kscreen', but that did nothing.The display manager shows just fine, and when I log in my cursor appears for a second, but right after that the monitor shits itself. but it's obviously some config file that has been modified, right?
What is the best way to create a multi-language website?
>>70560609A lot of software tends to install all kind of background services you don't need, like "startup-accelerators", which sacrifice speed of everything else to speedup the start of a single program. Or install background updaters, which serve no function but to update one or two programs. Shell extensions are terrible too.They're all removable/configurable, although it often requires you know what to do. Not something an average computer user would be aware of.I've never had these problem that much myself. I've been using PCs for years without reinstalling anything and shit just ran fine. Bootup slowdowns happened over time, because the sheer amount of services and tools I end up putting in the startup willingly, but that's it.Just keep an eye on everything running in the background. It's never the operating system, it's always the software packages. Try keeping away from the big commercial packages, and watch out what else some installers try to sneak in.

Is there a way I can measure how much power a USB port delivers? I have 2x usb3 front ports and noticed that my external SSD often disconnects whereas the ports on the back are fine. I have checked all the cables and power saving options (disabled all) and tried different usb enclosures and its definitely the front ports that are playing up.

>>70560124It's the lowest effort way to configure antennae for good reception, and it lets you plug in different ones with higher / lower gain if you want to shape your coverage area. Some devices with integral antennae have great reception though.

What is the most barebone OS I can use that I can run with modern technology with 0 problems, anything else in the OS I want to develop them myself. I just want a OS(pretty much like UNIX), any programs I may use in it, I want to program them myself.I feel like the bad part about how shit any distro/OS is because of how bloat they are and being a passive user, I have no choice but to use them. So I want to go from a passive to an active user, to only use what I develop(or at least know the ins and outs of anything I'm using so I can easily modify it when I want it), but I also feel that this may not be doable anymore thanks to how fast technology has advanced from 00s to now.

IMO its a decent player and super cheap.>>70566995So like... when you use a desktop, what kind of issues you have?Your icons don't match. Your GTK theme looks odd, you want to properly set Qt looks. Audio lags, you tweak pulse's config a bit. You need 3D, so you install GPU drivers one way or another.My point is that these all add up to a specific skillset. Which is indeed "Linux experience", but you don't need these on a server. On a server, you would need like... how to set up LAMP, how to write a simple backup script and schedule it with cron. How to secure a server. How to set up a cpanel or something similar. That kind of stuff. It's just different.I used Linux for 5years+ on desktop, and the only thing I was able to re-use when I started using servers is the basic terminal knowledge that I needed when my shit broke.

So I work for a big company and all of our printers are connected to a network. I want to print a bunch of tax/medical documents but I'm concerned that that someone could be logging everything and I don't want my shit backed up on some company server I don't know about.Is that a legit concern or am I just being dumb? I don't care if they have a job list that shows the titles of the documents. I'm just worried that someone could see/record the actual contents.

>>70567250it's not a bad/stupid concern. but what could they do with the info?see: https://forums.fedoraforum.org/archive/index.php/t-252706.htmlit depends on the printer though, like if its a "raw printer" ..the printer itself on the network... it shouldn't be possible to log jobs/documents.
Why has my svchost process (in Win7-64) been slowing my PC down recently? It occasionally spikes up to 2GB of RAM usage and slows my whole system down when it does so. Is there any utility that could tell me what's up?
>>70567254also try around things like Knoppix. there might be just a distro that "just works".
>>70567277It's either updates or a rootkit (same thing amirite :^))
>>70567273Thanks anon. I just don't like the idea of having copies of my 1099 on some random server that may or may not belong to some 3rd party contractor. I realize that that may already be the case, but I'd rather limit the spread of my info if possible.

Can i use Inspect Element to fiddle with the scripts on a webpage to gain more access on a webpage/server?
>>70567520Not really. The scripts are mostly user side, so worst case ... the thing they process are not sanitized, so you could do like an SQL injection or remote command execution. But that's not really with the script themselves.

I want to actually learn Linux. I got an old laptop that I can fuck with. What's a good distro to start and learn Linux on? Not necessarily looking for a "windows-like experience." I want a Linux distro that feels like Linux that I can learn command line stuff on and tweak and theme and mess with. Pic related is what I'm working with, ignore the fact that it's Ubuntu already.
>>70568186Ubuntu LTS. No distro is going to limit your ability to learn command line stuff and tweak and theme. You can install any DE or WM on Ubuntu.
Anyone have experience with AMD cards and GPU MHz fluctuations?I just got the card yesterday and of course its not working correctly.

Which one of these sounds like a better idea?1. Developing a new mesh protocol / using existing mesh protocols (Bluetooth mesh) to allow people to creating distributed networks in metropolitan areas thanks to everyone having a smartphone. Chat applications, file sharing, etc will be built on top. 2. Developing an imageboard that is designed to have a list of server hosts that mirrors its content that can be dynamically updated so people could make copies of the site and host it wherever. Problem is of course using a hash system to ensure each server hosts the right thing. Blockchain is probably useful here.
>>70568497The old access point would still be on the improved network otherwise the network you're connecting to is wrong.Otherwise:DHCP release renew?
>>70568651I have no idea how they did it, I was getting internet at .4mbps. In the instructions it said to power cycle your computer and it should bring you to your new access point. I am letting everything sit off and unplugged for an hour but if this doesn't work I will try it.

Not sure whether to ask here or /pcbg/ desuI don't do much recording, but I want to get a secondary GPU, Nvidia specifically since I already have the RX580, with the Nvidia GPU specifically for NVENC in OBS, and maybe PhysX in the rare game that supports it. Because it'd only be for NVENC & PhysX, which are somewhat common, but not all too common really, I wouldn't want to get something like a used 980 Ti for example, and if I were to buy an Nvidia GPU, I'd rather just buy new and sell my current. What's a reasonable GPU for this sort of usage?

Complete computer illiterate heredon't know shit about computers/networking so bare with my dumbass herezoomer dad left our router without a password and firewall and the same deal on our PC's running windows and hid the SSID claiming no one could find the network let alone join it, he claims its to maximize the internet speed and that the firewalls slow it down, hes been extremely autistic with maximizing the download speeds constantly changing the settings in the router sometimes restarting it several times a day and even replacing windows on our only desktop for pop os, he thought it would it was the end all be all os with out the windows bloat slowing everything down it only took a day for it to confuse the shit out of him and he went insane when it took 2 hours to download a 100mb nvidia video driver he then decided it was was to complicated and a piece of shit and now wants to get a $30 copy of windows 10 on ebayall in all my question if if theirs some logic to his madness or if hes lost it
>>70570616You can find the network even if you hide the SSID.>Pop osJust tell him to use mint or plain ubuntu.Your internet speed is based in your ISP, cant change much about that unless you have some shitty router/modem.

Is pcie compatible with those 3.0 expansion cards and are there any low profile ones that could fit in an all in one?
Is the PSU a really important component to invest your money?
>>70570679Yes since it affects how much the rest of your parts will last and how protected they would be in case of electrical failure.Just get a EVGA G2 or G3 or a Seasonic PSU and avoid Corsair PSUs.
>>70570650Kinda what I figured, throughout all his experimenting with the router settings I've never seen a visible improvement and the download speeds have never gone above 60mbps he have a decent asus ac1750 and he went full autism with the modem, scouring forums and doing research for a month before deciding on a $50 tp-link modem saying it had a different chip set then the shitty intel puma ones most modems used, I bought it for him and he was super excited but I still saw zero improvement in anything
>>70570711>asus ac1750With the stock firmware?Different firmware will do more than a new router.Anyway $50 is in the "just works" area and the expensive stuff is not really worth it for 60Mbps.Intel Puma chipsets are indeed flawed, but you wont notice it in normal household use.

Maybe the 1650 will have the same NVENC and shit and then you can use that.To be fair, any mid range Nvidia will fucking obliterate the RX580... so I'd just sell that and buy a new RTX 2060 maybe.>>70570176No such thing anon.

how can i run an android app using an older vrsion of android?
>>70571633W H YAlso, you could use a live Linux USB stick probably. Like Ubuntu.
>>70571866Android apps have like a minimum SDK. If your OS is older, then it can't run.
>>70571868I wanted to play Gears of War 4 and switched back over a year ago, I just found the game hiding away on my games drive eating up 130 gbAnd thanks for the advice it sounds easy enough
>>70571890yea but why switch to 7, it's like super end of life. not a win10 fan here for sure, but still, it just works.just use 10 LTSB, or fuck, server 2016 if you are such a special snowflake, or a #nerd...
>>70571835You don't need Turing for NVENC, GTX 600 series and newer have NVENC support. If I wanted to spend a bunch of money on a newer card, anything would be fine for infrequent recording. My RX580 runs everything I play perfectly fine, and I have zero reason to upgrade, was mostly just interested in a cheap, somewhat old Nvidia card just to be the NVENC/PhysX slave.
>>70571875i mean i have andr 9, is it possible to run an app in compatibility mode for andr 8?
>>70570176LibreCAD is one I know of. Haven't used it, so can't really comment on it.
>>70571899Haha, read the article mate, that's why I linked it ffs.I have a GTX880M, a GTX760, a GTX1060, and a 1070 TI and a 1080.You know what's common? NVENC LOOKS LIKE FUCKING SHIT VOMIT ALL OVER THE SCREEN.Even with like fucking 6000kbps bitrate which will lag all your audience the fuck out.Why do you think Nvidia made it 'news'? Because its actually a new, good feature. Fuck.
>>70571902uh, it will just run. when you create an app in Android SDK/Studio, you specify the minimum SDK version. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/xamarin/android/app-fundamentals/android-api-levels?tabs=windowsSee "Minimum Android Version".>>70571907Btw even recordings looks like ass. OR Nvidia Highlights. It's just.. shit vomit. Everywhere.
>>70571898Win10 was really fucking me at the time and GoW4, which was 100% of the reason for trying it out, didnt blow me away and take me back into the series, so I just went back to what I knewbut seeing as windows 7 somehow turned on auto updates for the 3rd time this week maybe its time to go back
>>70571907>>70571922I indeed read a decent chunk of that article. There's a difference between recording short videos and streaming. A friend of mine who barely makes money on Jewtube has a GTX 980, and his videos look just fine, and he uses OBS with NVENC as opposed to Nvidia Shadowplay or whatever it's called now.
>>70571925yea I mean you could use 8.1 as well and you have the best feature (fast boot, hybrid sleep).. but for real, MS stopped pushing new big updates so aggressively, so luckily my PC didn't break in the past year at all. I had frequent BSODs on a HP EliteBook - turned out it was the stock image HP shipped the machine with. upon installing a clean 10, zero issues.and you have the things like the new retpoline mitigationhttps://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/boost-windows-10-performance-with-retpoline-spectre-mitigation/>>70571933Yea I am just saying. I set my ShadowPlay to like 50,000kbps and my temp directory to my 6TB HDD RAID0 array.The directory is 125GB already with just a few days of short clips.I know it "works" with NVENC, but you just need such a high bitrate. And it's unusable for streaming. Even Intel QSV is better if you have a recent Intel CPU.
>>70571946see.so like you need a fast HDD array or SSD to take temp. then you have to work with big ass files that still look ass. and finally re-encode a gazillion gigabytes into a 20-100mb clip... eh, its' just ass.

Anonces, do i upgrade my i5-4670k to an i7-4790k or do i save up for a full cpu plus mobo plus ram swap?Please do the mindful and send advice thanks
What software is good for DVD copying? Not movies or anything, home video stuff.
>>70572126do the 4790K. I did the same and it breathed new life into my machine.it's practically a 7700K with this upgrade. only worthy upgrade above this is the 9700K/9900K, but those cost way more.there is also Ryzen, but it's utter trash in single thread (both the 4670K and 4790K literally obliterate it in any game or single perf task). ie.: It's not an upgrade.
>>70572182Windows: imgburnLinux: k3b .. if it's still a thing. long years ago, I used k3b.
>>70572188What did you have before?In what scenarios did you notice a jump?
>>70572188also the 9700K/9900K is just way too power hungry, so you need a very good VRM (superb motherboard) and very beefy cooling. and once Intel FINALLY FUCKING releases 10nm and maybe 7nm closely after that, it just becomes really obsolete, really bloody fast. so I wouldn't bother.yes, a new 9700K build would give me way higher 1% performance in games (way less dips), but you know, PUBG runs at 100 FPS on the 4790K using a 1070 TI. what else could I ask for. I play it on 60 FPS lock anyway, due to the stupid framerate locked gun physics shit. and meh, Fortnut runs at 140 FPS or so, but really can't feel much diff.>>70572209used the 4670K haha. it worked more or less okay in games even like Black Cocks 4, but as soon as my PC even updated the clock, it caused huge dips. streaming or recording gameplay was out of the question as well. and just in desktop overall, I couldn't multitask that well really. sometimes my PC was just waiting for shit to load.with the 4790K.. I can stream, I can play any demanding title really, or multitask super heavily.do I state that this CPU is SO STRONG? no, of course, if you have a 9700K, you also have a 3200mhz RAM most likely. and games like Battlefield V, will run probably much better than on a 4790K. then again. BF V fucking sucks. bought it when it was discounted, biggest regret since my BF 1 purchase. prolly will sell this origin account too. Ps.: fuck you EA.
>>70572191Thanks anon. Never needed to actually copy a dvd before, always just did dd in linux whenever I was writing an install disc.

>>70572222damn, nice repeating digits, congratz myself.I'd suggest selling the 4670K, I was able to sell it for like 110 euro, and bought the 4790K from ebay from the chinks for 185 euro. before that I was able to find an other 4790K in my own country for ~130 euro, that was a steal. but yea, we both use a 4790K now. it just doesn't make any sense to go anything else. trust me, I checked.> 2600K/2700K> 3770K> 4770K/4790KPros:> 4core 8 thread> most can do 4.7 ghz and even above> DDR3 (cheap, LOADSARAM)> used, cheap motherboards> Z97 has M2 SSD even> 5820K or 5th/6th gen usedPros:> six core> cpu is cheap> can do 4.5ghz+Cons:> ddr4 - and it can't run the best/latest> pricey motherboards, even used as "Extreme" was like enthusiast series shit>>70572242> loves bf1FIf he is a filthy casual, just use a service like Shadow.tech ... not to shill or anything, but meh, it's... it runs BF just fine.> switch emulation and monhun worldI didn't do Switch emulation on this CPU, do you want me to anything to test?The Chinese 4790K I bought can do 4.5 on 1.21vc and 4.7 on 1.3.
>>70572258>ChineseVeery nice Ali express?Also i cant expect you to download mario switch, the rom is like 25gb. I guess if battlefield runs fine then monhun should too, its an unoptimized cpu hog
>>70572272got it from ebay, seller had high rep, I was like worst case I get a refund.you could also look at local used sites if you have any trusted ones.. like we one for like computer peeps and we have a reputation system, etc.eh, I can download it, I have 1gbps/1gbps internet. we are poor af in yurup, but we have fast internet.
>>70572281>>70572272btw I need cemu.. the mario switch thing and... any firmwares or stuff like that?
>>70572285No, you need yuzu (the switch emulator)Pretty much that, switch key files and mario odyssey rom. I dont remember exactly how it goes but there are some tutorials with mega links to the keys and showing how to set it upIm eurofag too 20mbps/4mbps tho
>>70572305Found an Odyssey "RF version" for ReiNX/Hekate CFW. Not sure if that loads in yuzu.
>>70572319Holy shit dude, that speed though.Id say it probably does.Misremembered rom size it seems
>>70572330yea grabbing the shit from a reddit post... feels like 1990s... grabbing DDL shit from Mega, lol.
>>70572352Yes :) Tbh its a bit shallow of me, upgrading for those things. Otherwise everything is perfectly snappy. But i feel its time for an upgrade anyway
>>70572364it's loading, wasn't too hard, just needed the firmware/shader files from plebbit.will see in a sec how it runs
>>70572368Whats it like anon :o
>>70572404apparently, the Shader cache that I grabbed from Reddit needs to be loaded and that only runs with 1 thread... rest in pepperoni...well, I am in no hurry.
>>70572407Haha yeah i kinda tried it a bit ago and gave up because of the performance so i cant give precise troubleshooting
>>70572407>>70572404https://www.reddit.com/r/yuzu/comments/apjkiu/multi_core/or there is no multi-core/thread at all... then buying a 7700K or 8086K and running it on 5ghz might be the only option... even that is just a minor speed bump like 10-30% very max. :/
>>70572421https://yuzu-emu.org/entry/yuzu-progress-report-2018-p4/Awh big heck, i swear it supported it last time i triedNote: The Multi-core option has been temporarily removed, due to inaccuracies in our kernel and scheduler. We will likely support multi-core at some point in the future.It seems from this they removed it. I guess you could download an old version again, i did notice a big drop in performance after updating it a while back. Welp, goes to show dont update what aint broken. I guess you could find the version before the removal, though youve already done more than enough so thank you
>>70572459No probs. Still loading, but I reckon perf would be roughly the same. also not sure if the rom files and stuff would work with an older build. will try to install Nightly (or whatever it's called) once the shader load finishes.
What's the actual worst that would realistically happen if I buy a quite obvious scam on Ebay?Noticing quite a lot of Ryzen CPU's well below $100.
>>70572473Yeah nightly / canary will probably run better.https://youtu.be/n-fElYfNmYo Runs it very well, though he has an i7-8700kim not spending that much for switch emulation for sure though, will rather wait for the emulator to optimize
>>70572502Core 2 duo
What's the difference m2 ssd and just a regular ssd?
>>70572521m2 goes into the motherboard's m2 slot usually. it's supposed to be faster too, but of course, that depends on the SSD itself. ie.: it can use TLC, MLC, it can be whatever. you get the idea.>>70572505yea I am on canary now, 90% done.
>>70572521some are faster some are notAll fit in a neat little slot
Does Ryzen do emulation well?
>>70572521M.2 is the form factor. NVMe VS SATA are the interface/standard. Simply put, NVMe are typically faster than SATA, but quite a bit more expensive. If we're talking about a Crucial MX500 M.2 VS 2.5", it's within margin of error of one another.
>>70572526Oh also feel free to fug with the performance / acceleration settings a bit, also thank you very much for this
>>70572537So, the end results... I think:> game runs HARDCORE on 1 thread> ONLY 1 thread. nothing more. > it needs a FUCKTON of memory. it eats up 10-12gb easily. I wouldn't try to emulate below 24-32gb.Actually I have 24gigs available but the fucking seller sent me a bent pin motherboard and 2 slots don't work on my motherboard. The struggle is real, anon.
>>70572629Lol awh :c Thats okay anonI swear i played up to the first level on 40~ fpsSuch is lifeIll probably upgrade anywayThanks anon!
>>70572708I can only recommend the upgrade, I mean at this point you can still sell the i5 for a reasonable amount and then you have a decent PC again. >>70572533if the emulator scales with threads/cores, yes.
How do I overclock my CPU? I'm to afraid that I will fuck something up
>>70572739I have ryzen 5 1600
>>70572739>>70572745you don't really. ryzen is not very overclockable. it's pretty much pre-binned.just make sure your ram runs at the proper frequency...and that's about it.
>>70572708I mean I ain't lyin
>>70572748but I've seen people overclocking it to 3.9 ghz
>>70572754well it's just what I heard. not sure what +300mhz of speed can give ya.
>turn on heater>speakers click>turn off>turn back on>one monitor shuts off until i shut the heater offEXPLAIN THIS SHIT RIGHT NOW
>>70572732Where did you sell the i5, ebay?Auction or set price?
>>70572769Ur electric installations a poop
>>70572754shit, fucking hotkeys.so.from what I heard:> it will increase heat load A LOT> the normal AMD Turbo (XFR, etc) works great> from what I read.. but you can watch youtube, etc, it will give only a marginal perf increase and its' just not worth it overall.but.in a nutshell, you overclock on ANY modern PC by:- pick a reasonable high vcore (this depends on chip, Ryzen likes higher, go look what's reasonable for 1600)- set a 3.9 for example- if it doesn't boot, lower the max speed- once it boots lower vcore- try to find a sweet spotfor example my i7 4790K can do 4.8 only on very high vcore. so it doesn't really make much sense, since it can do 4.5 on 1.21. so I just stick to 4.5.>>70572775I used a local site, but eBay could work very well. Be careful with scams, like refund requests and shit. Look up how you can deny them in your listing right off the bat.>>70572769breaker tripped?if this happens, I would recommend trying to find new plugs that don't use the same wiring, or it could fry some wires...
>>70572796>>70572785but it's only my heater that causes these issues. i can have every socket filled to the brim with no issues but if i have the heater plugged in everything gets fucky. would it still be the installations or might it be the appliance?
>>70572796Okay, will do
>>70572807Could be either, heaters are very intensiveThe heater itself could be faulty or it could bring already iffy installations down to their knees
>>70572807well if you count things like PC, monitor, etc... those take up max like what, 300watts? 500?an electric heater starts from 1600W. let alone the start power draw which kicks like a fucking mule.see for example: https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B00B7GHQQW/ref=s9_acsd_top_hd_bw_b9QngKl_c_x_w?pf_rd_m=A1K21FY43GMZF8&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-12&pf_rd_r=5A0GWQS4GBSMV5C0AMY6&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=af4e6c9e-d978-52ca-ad94-f43c58bdb648&pf_rd_i=8641221031"Plug type: 15A, do not plug in the standard 5 or 6A socket, you may require a 3 pin plug or extension cord to act as a 5-15A convertor but can not be used for long time with extension cord"Even in my house where the installation is super solid (incredibly thicc copper wiring) you can see the light dim a bit when the electric+oil heater switches on and off.Think of heaters like industrial tools.
>>70572807>>70572828also if "everything" gets fucky, it means the whole room is just uses one "line" from the main supply.they usually have one big ass cable come into the house, then split that with breakers into sections, rooms, etc.your room prolly has just one of this coming in, and if it was done with a regular cheapo aluminum cable, it can't carry too much juice.
>>70572828>>70572827>>70572839that explains that then. didn't realize a small ass shitty heater used more power than my entire setup. i'll be careful with it until i get the money to have someone fix my wiring
>>70572849you COULD probably just replace the normal breaker with a breaker that is "slow". its like a breaker that has the same capacity, let's say 15A, but "ignores" a quick big draw. like if you have a microwave oven or this heater thing, and it kicks up to 20A on turn on/off, it would trip your current breaker. but, with such a breaker, it would not, as power usage lowers once it's operational.I don't know the exact word of this breaker, I'd recommend /diy/ and ask there. Replacing the breaker is like a minor task and if they say it's safe, it could work.that said, let's say it eats 1500W normal... that will still add to your regular whatever... 1000W use. so you will have 2500W load on the wire/system.
Anyone happen to know how to get expressvpn to install. I keep getting Error 0x80070643 no matter what I do.Forced uninstall since it won't even uninstall normally and just gives that error. Even after that it won't install.
>>70573013Okay so heres what you doYou google 'tor browser'You install itYou now has a free expressvpn membership for life
>>70573024Yes that totally works on every program.
>>70573035Install .net framework
Best PacketTracer course?
>>70573058Here ya go anonhttp://lmgtfy.com/?q=Cisco+packet+tracer+course
an intel i5-4690 @ 3.5 GHz should be more than enough to emulate ps2-games at full speed right?
>>70573138Yes more than enoughThough for best experience, enable hardware acceleration if you have a gpu thats not complete poop
>>70572796I tried to boost it to 3.9 but it crashed despite me copying the settings. so I just used. game boost and lowered vcore. seems to be ok for now...
I'm trying to resolder the pins of a micro usb female port only using soldering iron. What is the worst case scenario if I short two pin? Can it fry the thing or it just doesn't work.
>>70573366my pc runs much louder now. i-it's normal r-r-right?
Should I defrag an ssd?
Any LaTeX wizards here? I'm writing a report with it, though it's my first time using it. I'm trying to make the text in each cell automatically linebreak rather than overrunning the boundaries of the cells. Supposedly tabluarx with the X column specifier fixes this, but this doesn't solve the problem.
>>70573453YesRunning hotter, fans spinning more
>>70573571That's what I thought. Windows set it to defrag every 7 days by default.
>>70573182i've tried tinkering with the rendering settings with no luckso if it's not a hw issue either then it's gotta be because I'm on Linux right?
>>70573664Possibly, dont stress about it though
>>70555348any direct LTSC downloads that work???? Preferrably google drive..
>>70573758Get ltsb beb, don worry
>>70573835What's the difference? not really a wangblows guy but I'm giving an old laptop to my sister and wanna it less bloat since it's an old laptop (2012 one)
>>70573855Its basically older version ltsc, you arent missing anythingTeach her basic comp safety
>>70571505>tfw you will have OS exclusives instead of console exclusives in your lifetime
>>70573899Ritard what do you thinks gaems not having linux versions for years is?
>>70573934They're only exclusives if you don't know what wine+dxvk is
>>70573956Ye lemme sack 50%+ of my performance
>>70566963I can't boot the Linux installer. I can't boot anything.
>>70573956Ye lemme spend 30 minutes on google trying to figure out how to set up wine for each game only for it to have game-breaking issues and awful performance
>>70574015>>70574015Not even bios?
>>70574058I could get into bios. I eventually managed to get it to work by changing from uefi to cmos in the bios settings but it seemed pretty bad when the usb that worked before didn't work any more and I couldn't boot other stuff I put on the usb either.
I got the option of picking up a 15' Surface Book 2 for really fucking cheap. I mostly use it for uni and travel for work sometimes. Looks pretty nice and professional. Is the 3:2 aspect ratio a fucking meme tho? I don't do any video editing. A lot of writing, reading, coding and occasional gaymeFor the same price point, I can get a laptop with a better screen/GPU with the normal aspect ratioIs the SB2 a meme? I can't tell. Most user comments on it are positive but I think that's some weird projection of buyer's remorse since that shit so expensive usually
>>70574149Silly goos you needed legacy boot
