The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

At a guess, I'd say it's likely that the video cards of the two systems don't implement the same features.

When I used to do video processing on Windows, we did a lot with DirectX and found every system we tried, our software on needed some tweak to our video processing. The video in some systems didn't implement features, others did, but using feature B was faster than feature A on it (on most other systems, A was faster than B), and others implemented a feature, but it just didn't work right.

Honestly, I don't know how games worked at all.

This was about 10 years ago.. a lot has probably changed. However, it may be that your old software is using features that some systems still implement, or implement well, and others dropped.
I live in Oregon, and I'm an engineer.
