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. Admittedly I only played the demo versions but I had rather stable performance …

Re: Rare and lost demo/shareware releases wanted list

Here's what I believe to be the original ZIP of the BLAM! Machinehead demo that was available from the GamesDomain FTP: blamdemo.zip . The Wayback Machine has preserved a pretty good mirror of said FTP , but the demo of BLAM! is not among the files that were archived. I found the demo using Hallfiry …

Here's a cool thing I was just notified of: a platform game made by Commander Keen fans (but not a mod) called Planet Cloudius IX . It's based on an engine recreation of the second trilogy of Keen games, but that engine was created from the start for fangames , not to be used with original game data …

Re: Dosbox and Alien Trilogy

The CD image format should be irrelevant for the cutscenes because those are just simple AVI files. A very long time ago I had a bootleg CD (actual physical disk) of the game and had to do some weird stuff to make it work (DOSBox v0.63 it was back then), like mounting the directory where I installed …

Re: Looking for Pie 3D GCS games

in Milliways
I just found the German demo of 3D GCS that was distributed by Jurgen Egeling Computer. It's called Industrial Killers like the regular demo but features completely different levels (not involving the shooting of humans as far as I can tell), presumably due to German censorship. I got it off this …

Manga109Attempt, I haven't experimented with others on this example. Well it did an okay result with this particular image but keep in mind it's basically the first model created and it's fairly old by today's standards. You could first try running the art through JPEG artifact removal models, …

Re: Authorised fan remakes of/sequels to games

in Milliways
If you take open source reimplementations into consideration as well, there's quite a list: https://osgameclones.com/ I know well about this site but it does not state whether any given remake was officially authorised or not. Theoretically, fully FOSS licensed projects should be free of copyright …

Re: Rare and lost demo/shareware releases wanted list

'Jack in the Dark' was released at Christmas 1993 as a free game on floppy disk. (Presumably as magazine coverdisk). The zipped archive was meanwhile made available on the Infogrames BBS. I did not know that, thanks! It's a bit odd that this release was not listed on the various "free games on the …

Authorised fan remakes of/sequels to games

in Milliways
I've been coming across fan games based on commercial franchises from time to time, and there seems to be more than one that are in one way or another endorsed/allowed/supported by the original franchise's owners. However there seems to centralised source on such projects, and it seems that rather …

I am looking for the additional "DLC" / downloadable Levels for the german "comedic" game "TV Total - Pulleralarm". Where were they available from? I just briefly checked the dev website (address taken from MobyGames ) via the Wayback Machine but the snapshots are not in a very good condition, and …
