Not to throw this thread off topic, but as a semi related note to the whole "Retro computing leads to other hobbies" thing: I allways felt like there was a bit of a disconnect between retro computer gamers/collectors and the *average* retro gaming crowed. Idk if it's all the work that goes into …

Re: Sound Blaster 16 & AWE: From best to worst

Not true, a lot of Vibras have hanging note issues. I'm not sure why CT4170 is marked as not having it though. I have one, but never tested it.

I already have an A500 with a 42MHz accelerator and 8GB CF-IDE hard drive. All set for that. I don't care much for Mac stuff though.

The first (not actually first, as they were developed at the same time) Dune by EIDOS is a fantastic and very faithful adaptation of the book, I absolutely love it. Dune II was one of my first PC gaming darlings, and I got around to playing the first game not until a few years later, but once I …
