How much demand did typical levels put on the chipset?

I have a p4 prescott that unfortunately has irreplaceable chipset fans. When I had this same problem with another board I'd get a BSOD with things like video encoding but not general use. Maybe only something like NUTS would push it?

I'd rather think that you should stop trying to play games on defective CPUs.

Regarding the question: Do you really believe you get any useful responses to those overly generic questions?

Yeah if your chipset fan is going out and can't be replaced, it's time to write it off and get a different chip. You might be able to find something workable at a surplus electronics store, or your local Craigslist, for little money.

Certainly. You know what makes the port behave under certain conditions and getting an answer for a single question can save me up to a few hours of finding out for myself. Sometimes there's simply no way to find out for myself, and I'm happy for a best guess.

Except in a lot of cases you're simply offloading those few hours to someone else.

Not if they know off the top of their head. Obviously nobody is going to take more than a few minutes to answer something unless they have a special interest in it.

Btw, how am I meant to warp to a certain doom 1 level when recording a demo? -warp 16 brings up "could not find map e1m@" and -warp e1m6 brings up "could not find map e1m0"

Have you tried -warp 1 6 ?

That did it. I think someone left out a space when editing the doom wiki.

Is the technical support section appropriate for an error on hardware that meets the current minimum requirements? (Specifically, opengl2) I'm getting an unusual error regarding not having 3.3, but I'm almost certain that support for 2 hasn't been dropped.

Yes it is.
