Hey since FRAPS doesn't work properly on Windows 10, what does everyone use for game capture and just a simple no BS frame rate display? I want something light like FRAPS just for displaying the FPS and maybe something that can benchmark too so I can find the average FPS, low FPS, etc. Anybody have a good tool for this?
Yes, Aliexpress is legit. I've purchased quite a few things from Aliexpress before. Essentially it's like an Ebay except these are merchants who buy stuff in bulk from factories then resell it at a slight markup. Thanks to the Chinese government subsidizing much of this, the online retailers on Aliexpress can offer stuff like USB Type C cables for $1-2. There are a couple shady merchants on there just like on Ebay or Amazon, but generally speaking I think you'll be OK. The only big downside to Aliexpress is that their stuff will likely ship from China. As a result, you'll probably need to wait several weeks to over a month to receive your item. In my experience it takes about 3 weeks to go from China to the west coast of the US so if you live farther inland I imagine it'll take even longer.
So here's an easy question. Has anybody tried Aliexpress? I was about to buy some USB C cables and it's insanely cheap on there. Like dollar cheap plus free shipping.
USB Cable 1
USB Cable 2
Is this a scam? How the hell do they make money on a dollar USB cable shipped?
Are you running Windows 10? If you are, Windows 10 has a built in brightness adjustment function that can dim your screen for you. Just go to Settings --> Display. Not as easy as doing it on the keyboard but it'll work.
