            I think that you're overlooking that the guy is a fringe aspie, like many of us here, and has trouble with the whole social mores thing. I get the impression that he tries to be polite, but he's a matter-of-fact person and also doesn't want to sound like a kiss up.

      I started disliking him after his dishonest video on Amiga where he presented games and demos made in like 1993 as if they were representative of the platform when it came out in 1985. The multitasking too, it was just a gimmick. Nobody used it for anything since running any piece of real software took up all the machine's processing power and memory.

                As was pointed out in

                Guy on the left is older than 8-bit guy on the right. This is what too much RetroBrite exposure does to you.

                , different people age differently. Some of it is genetics but most of it is how you choose to take care of your body. Those who treat their bodies poorly get very upset about this reality.

    There is a VT83C461 VLB IDE controller chip on a FIC 486-VIP-IO motherboard. It requires software initialization to enable faster than PIO-0 transfer mode and the system BIOS doesn't have it included.

    There is a device driver VIAIDE.SYS available for that purpose at http://mpolibbs.steptail.com/drivers_1/HD/OHJAIMET/ATID/VT83C461/ but for some reason it doesn't seem to want to recognize the CF card vendor string correctly and apply the cycle time configured with VTSETUP.EXE. Moreover the whole driver is pretty much useless and takes 12KB of memory, seemingly replacing the bios routines with it's own. The timings stay active after reboot without loading the driver and Win3x 32-bit disk access works with SEG32BIT.386 driver.

    Would someone be able to help disassemble the driver and figure out the initialization routine and create a simple tool for setting the timings. It could then also be added to XT-IDE BIOS and maybe OS/2 DANIS506 driver and Win95 driver, which currently can't be worked out at all, because VIAIDE.386 doesn't work with it at all and only way to keep the faster timings is by booting to DOS, loading the driver and then soft rebooting to Windows 95.

      is it vtsetup.exe malfunctioning or is it the driver? you're not going to find anyone here to disassemble things for you. teach yourself. it's not very difficult, just time consuming.

        >is it vtsetup.exe malfunctioning or is it the driver?
        VTSETUP.EXE writes the values it has determined and the "CF Card" string to the driver, but the driver insists to apply the default timings, like it does before it has been configured. It does work with some cards, I'm not sure if there's some illegal character in the string on those cards which it doesn't work that it doesn't compare correctly or what the issue is. Trying to debug DOS device drivers seems to be somewhat more difficult than normal programs.

      MichaelMJD is comfy, he's like Druaga1 on Nyquil. Sure, sometimes he'll release a string of videos back to back that share a common theme (at the time of this post he seems to be on a WebTV kick right now), which does get a little dull sometimes but overall his channel is entertaining without being overly obnoxious.

    I like both of these guys although I respect LGR way more than 8bitguy cuz 8bitguy outs himself as a braindead redstate boomer any time he tries to do anything that requires critical thinking. Like when he used a paper clip to short out and destroy the power supply to an old rare computer he got from an ewaste place. Dude is just dumb as fucking rocks when it comes to anything outside his sphere of autism (I mean that literally not as an insult). He has an incredible mind for history and software but dude is going to electrocute himself some day.
    It's also been real funny watching him build and completely fuck up his little youtube fuck shack that he built in his back yard. Dude was like "I need to stop the rain from hitting the door" but doesn't install a fucking STORM DOOR.
    He's also definitely going to burn himself alive with the nightmare of fucking batteries and generators and cheap chinese solar garbage he shoved into his shack.

Some of them ruin the shit they buy, some of them "restore" the shit they get. It's like really expensive trinkets that take up a ton of space. Some of these retards are probably convinced that purchasing all this shit is an investment as well. Ultimately the only content to make with retro shit that gets clicks is the most surface level gay shit like clint or 8bit. Find some real gaytubers who do videos on old circuit board repair and shit like that. Far more interesting and based. Problem is they probably aren't cracking 50k subs, so good luck.

      8bit guy's brother has a channel that's more DIY and technical and it only gets a fraction of the views 8bit guy does. The sad reality is most people are far more interested in the nostalgia aspect than how things work.

      i dislike them too dubs

      What a waste of dubs. Dude, get a fucking laxative and talk to us when you're not constipated af. You sound like the token 80-year-old man yelling at a fire hydrant for looking too phallic.

    retro tech is fun and I love messing with it. Modern software is boring. Also the retro
    tech community is genuinely helpful when I have issues with tech.

    Why does nobody mention modern vintage gamer? He is one of the rare youtubers that knows his shit entirely in detail and actually does something useful.

      hes not a complete moron but he also doesnt add anything. just talks about/demonstrates whatever current emulation / console modding thing is current.
      I appreciate that he tends to stay in his lane but theres no real draw to his content. Just the same shit you find on half a dozen other channels.

    What's your opinion on 8 bit guy leaving his porn history in his videos

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      That video is so weird
      He doesn't know good ad blockers
      He seriously thinks that manually adding websites to the hosts file is what normalfags who watch that video want to do
      He watched porn but makes a tutorial on blocking "evil porn sites"

        I could honestly believe he Googled "porn" and just clicked the first result to test his filtering and forgot to sanitize his history.

        in clearnet porn sites it means 18-19 year olds, though porn site owners only recently decided to stop being retarded and require suffixing it with (18+)
        so many third rate porn sites will shove the word teen in the URL for SEO it's unreal

        MichaelMJD is comfy, he's like Druaga1 on Nyquil. Sure, sometimes he'll release a string of videos back to back that share a common theme (at the time of this post he seems to be on a WebTV kick right now), which does get a little dull sometimes but overall his channel is entertaining without being overly obnoxious.

        You know, I feel the hardline anti-Communist anti-Transexual vibe, and it's okay, and /misc/ should be cool with that, and they do, they do, they be cool that way, brother

        >why do troons have to ruin everything
        It's just a troon sending him something dude chill the fuck out
