Re: Retro flight sim playthroughs

in Milliways
Added new links to initial post: Comanche 3 DOS Wings of Glory New entry added to classic DOS flight sims: F-22 Lightning II by Novalogic (1996) I loved Wings of Glory. I've played through it twice (23 years apart). Even Pacific Strike, which got so much flack, was super entertaining. And of course …

I just discovered that you can keep picking a lockpicked chest over and over to raise your lockpicking skills in Betrayal at Krondor . LOL. So this game is one of those RPGs that is very low-key. Lots of exploration, no re-spawning enemies, a fun sense of adventure that you can relax and play with a …

Re: Avance Logic ALG2228 or Cirrus Logic GD5428?

I have not tested these exact chipsets in VLB, but I have tested very similar ones in PCI. The Avance Logic ALG2301.B PCI is roughly 3-6% faster than the CL-GD5430 PCI. Some specific numbers, tested on a Pentium 75 - Doom: ALG2301.B = 34.6 fps GD5430 = 32.6 fps Quake 320x200: ALG2301.B = 18.5 fps …

Once I complete this one, I'm going to put the direct sequel ( Secret of the Silver Blades ) on hold and continue the Gold Box series chronologically; that means I'll be starting out with a new party for Champions of Krynn , which has some interesting changes to the formula in terms of classes and …

Betrayal at Krondor Okay, I'm about 4 hours in and it's starting to grow on me. I love the emphasis on story telling. The world is actually a lot bigger than it seems while traversing it. Here's the first section that I'm still in: http://mikesrpgcenter.com/krondor/maps/lamut.html The music is …

Nice to read your thoughts on BaK and Ravenloft. I pretty much agree on all counts lol I really dislike the graphics engine in BaK. I know you can set it to automatically follow roads, but I never got comfortable with it. I would have preferred either step-based or free-moving, but not the weird …

Betrayal at Krondor I spent about 90 minutes this morning test driving Betrayal at Krondor. It's definitely a unique RPG! The interface has a bit of a steep learning curve as does the style. I barely left the start point, searched the first body, entered the village of Yabon, bought a whetstone to …

Re: List of PC games that you have beaten

in Milliways
Just finished Bioshock Remastered. Took me 32.5 hours over 35 days. It was one of the better FPS games I've played in my life, but it would've been much better if I hadn't already beaten System Shock 2. The similarities were so close (mainly a different setting - under the ocean in the early 1950s …

Wing Commander Slowly making my way through this game whenever I feel like playing a mission or two. At first I thought I might just play it almost like a roguelike and just see how far I get without reloading, etc. However, although I do enjoy this game, I don't think I enjoy it enough to play …

-Might & Magic III won't play music when set to MT-32 and Sound Blaster. If I set it to MT-32 only, music works great but sound effects are sparse and poorly emulated by the MT-32. If I set to SB only, everything sounds good, music is still nice, just not as good as MT-32. edit: MM3 is also speed- …
