Yes, it's internal. Sorry, I should have made that clearer in my OP. Although it's actually a list of merchants that sell our products, so I can see that ultimately we may want to make it public and put it on our website. That's at least a year away though.
Sliders are the spawn of evil. Why do you need sliders? They increase load time, and really glitchy.
Managing the one the devs put on our website is nothing but a pain. Looks nice tho, and keeping all the graphics slider images super super tiny doesn't hit load times to badly. At least it hasn't yet knock on wood
With a 4k display, that graphics card isn't going to be able to do very high settings at 4k. 4GB also seems a little skimpy. Still, for $800 it isn't bad. Like @wirestyle22 said, do they need a laptop? Otherwise you could get better value with a Steam machine type box and hook it up to their existing TV.
You wrote this while I was typing. So that's a decent GTX card. But 4K display seems wrong.
My guess is either it's mainly for viewing 4k video content (although at 15inches, who cares?) or simply the 4k screens are a cheaper price point due to manufacturing scaling than a 1080p screen. Or just marketing.
Could just set games to quarter resolution, but that is annoying.
Yeah either that or just turn down/off anti-aliasing and drop a few other settings down depending on the game. I'm guessing @Dominica's parents probably are at that age where it frankly doesn't matter due to their age and eyesight.
A bigger issue will likely be scaling. Lots of games barf if you use Windows scaling to make things big enough to see. And especially games that they like.
As long as you're going in multiples of the resolution it won't be to bad. So if they set everything to 1080p instead of 4k it shouldn't look horrible.
I mean that the games actually won't run.
True, although GOG has done a good job of testing for the most part, for older games. Still there are some that just won't look good or run at larger resolutions. You could set the monitor itself to a lower resolution instead of upscaling the game though, no?
There are entire categories of casual games that don't even function on scaled resolutions. The underlying engines won't accommodate it. Hidden object games are a big one.
Yeah I never play those so I guess I'm missing out on that special area of troubleshooting :)
Don't get me wrong, bulldozing and rebuilding for the sake of bulldozing and rebuilding is wasteful, even if it is good for the economy at large.
My question begins with - why did they all leave? Why is the new location so much better?
In the case of Omaha, when a shop leaves one mall for another mall, it's because the new mall is in a much more affluent neighborhood, i.e. the hope for more revenue. It's likely that the location will wither and die, and never be rebuilt.
We rarely see something where businesses move out, the building is razed, something new in its place with new tenants. Typically if this happens, it happens because the area has become more prosperous and a new building will attract more customers, so out with the old and in with the new to make even more money.
So as was previously mentioned, those dead malls (we have two of them). One turned into office space. The second one is mostly empty and has been for around 10 years now. This mostly empty mall could be turned into apartments.
It is truly amazing what large scale data is allowing people (such as police) to do today. The amount of information that they can predict with enough data that individual events stop being data points and start being just patterns is just amazing.
Yes, you are correct, I think that that will work. Trying to figure out how to manually set the IP address in that case as it seems to want to not allow DHCP and the pool of IP addresses here is large so it makes it rather complicated.
