Re: Windows 95/98 games you never get tired of?

in Windows
Starcraft/Broodwar I'm so lame that I only started playing it on Vista. Now 10 years later and on Windows 7 I'm still stuck half-way through the Brood War campaign... Just wait until you hit Omega (very last level in Broodwar) then the struggle really begins. Took me an age to get through that one.

Re: Amstrad mega pc

The disk images work just fine, though counterpoint looks like it has had some changes made by the original owner (colours and a few icons do not look original).
