Do you experience nausea playing XP-era FPSes?

    When I started getting into FPS in the 2000's, 14 inch CRT monitors were the norm. 15 inches was considered luxury. Nowdays, 17 inch LCDs are the standard. When I tried to revisit some XP-era FPSes on an old rig, but with new LCD monitor, I became nauseated by the fast moving, rather large images.

    Do you experience the same things with classic games on modern hardware?

    IMHO, those small CRT monitors were the best for gaming them classic shooters!

    Adelaide and in my dreams as my wife sometimes tel
    No, not really but I am not much into gaming, yet. !.

    I am looking sometimes for simulators or FPS's to play around with but not overly keen about online versions.

    Any suggestions.

    I think my new desktop machine will have about enough "grunt" for all but the most demanding games. I know however that it will not handle FlightGear.

    Please toss any ideas my way.

    Much appreciated,

    Mark. (Aunty Jack).

    Actually, it's the other way around for me.

    Last time I used a CRT for daily purposes and gaming was in 2008, and after that I've used only LCDs. Last year I got a CRT from a friend, since I didn't have one to fit my old Pentium 4 gaming rig.

    When I first booted up Half-Life 2... oh my eyes, I literally had migrane and felt nauseous for 16 hours straight. Had to lie down in my bed and try to sleep to escape the pain. Couldn't notice that my eyes didn't like it before it was too late, I had already played a couple of hours (with breaks).

    The refresh rate was set to 75Hz and moiton blur was turned off. Quite strange.
