Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 275 - Crystal Caves is online! So... I'd never actually played Crystal Caves until this week... :O I'm not really sure exactly why I missed it, though I think my logic as a kid with limited modem bandwidth was that I'd rather play the newer stuff than the older stuff. …

Ancient DOS Games Pro 15 - Whip Investigation - Kroz Series is online! This is something that's always bugged me with the Kroz games, as you'll sometimes be making good progress in a level and suddenly your whips can't even cut through hot butter, and then at some moments it's like the whip's made …

Ancient DOS Games Episode 274 - Toonstruck is online! ...despite spending the whole day and night working on this while writhing in agony from spoiled food due to a malfunctioning fridge. ...yes, seriously. Fridge is replaced now thankfully. :P But in any case, I kinda went into Toonstruck expecting …

Ancient DOS Games Filler #83 - Useful Gaming Websites is online! Despite exceedingly loud early morning drilling and a bat problem destroying my ability to sleep this week, I managed to squeeze this video out as I fully intended to do something fast and easy. I think in total I spent maybe 12 hours …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 273 - Theme Hospital is online! Given how much I typically enjoy games made by Bullfrog, it might come as a surprise that there's any exceptions to that rule... but this is one of them. I actually avoided this game for the longest time primarily because of the health care …

VileR wrote on 2020-08-01, 13:19: BTW, I think this is the first time I've ever heard "xmas" pronounced as written ("ex-mass"). Or was that supposed to be "XMS edition"? :D If it visually said "Christmas" I would've called it that instead. I prefer not to mince words as I already have trouble …

Ancient DOS Games Mod 8 - Level Editing - SkyRoads is online! I was really surprised at first how little there was in the way of custom SkyRoads content and editors despite there being TONS of clones and remakes and such. Then when I actually looked into how SkyRoads levels are stored on disk it …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Epic's "Fire Fight" from a few years later had some similar gameplay elements and could qualify as a near-successor. Free-roaming, top-down shooters are scarce though. Engh, kinda. I've played the full version of Fire Fight (I don't own it) and I know from experience that it's a neat game with some …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 272 - Zone 66 is online! Really had high hopes for this one seeing as it's incredibly difficult to acquire the full, complete copy of Zone 66 legitimately nowadays, and it actually does have a very strong start! But... by the end it devolves into an overly difficult mess …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Pro 14 - Real Flipper Tricks - Epic Pinball is online! After making the Epic Pinball review years ago, I actually joined a local pinball league and have been playing the real thing on a regular basis ever since! ...well... I mean, not NOW because pandemic and everything, but once …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 271 - The Fortress of Dr. Radiaki is online! So... how do I put this delicately...? Hmm... I think the best way I can sum up this game is: TRAIN WRECK. This game is abysmal. It is so bad that I actually couldn't bring myself to see it all the way through, even though I was …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

OK, so I should point out a few things about the desktop compositing issue with Windows 10: 1. Not EVERYONE is suffering from it. There's a whole slew of factors involved and it's not clear what those factors even are, as two people with nearly identical setups can end up with one person having …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

No mention of Death Taxi 3000 ? The other two that got my attention are Eudora (it's not on DOS though) and Acronia . I only selected half of the games shown in the video and I didn't want to load the video up with just the most impressive stuff, as that wouldn't have given a realistic expectation …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Filler #82 - DOS Games Jam 2020 is online! This game jam got a bit of attention, so I figured I'd give it a bit of attention too, even though I'm typically not one for game jams, though not for any reasons other than the concept just not appealing to me. I asked my Patreon …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

The MS-DOS version runs just fine in a VM but NOT IN DOSBOX . I've tried so many different settings, cycle counts, the non dynamic recompiler core. Nothing prevents the crashes, instability and timing fluctuations. A VM with full hardware virtualization technologies is the only way to go for the …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Gunmetal (1998) by Mad Genius Software? Never had any of the issues you're talking about, but do not try to use the MS-DOS installer. You have to use the installshield version using the 32-bit installer stub. It's registry key must exist for the patch to even install properly as well. I've streamed …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 270 - Labyrinth of Zeux is online! I actually meant to cover Gunmetal this week but ran into... interesting problems trying to get it working. The installer would constantly abort complaining about not enough disk space, once manually installed I had to do a lot of tweaking …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Just a quick FYI to K1n9_Duk3: I wasn't able to get your patch working as the patcher was throwing errors that seemed completely impossible, specifically, it wasn't finding the right files despite them being right there along with the patch and patcher. I'm likely just doing something wrong but I …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Hmm... I'm positive I've seen enemies behave as though they're still being processed off-screen though... Is it more apt to say their initial direction is random once triggered and THEN they act forever, on-screen or not? 'cause that would explain a few things. :o Also, I downloaded the patch and …
