Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

Well, it's complicated. Most photos I posted here are from Tandon CSP1622, a pretty rare machine that I have found and restored (more about it here: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=60019&start=20 ).

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

It's a small independent game made in early 90s - I was not expecting a custom Hercules mode from it. I was just glad it worked on my machine, and it was pretty fun to play. Curiously, I didn't remember it not filling the whole screen. Probably just nostalgia glasses.

(Either mode 40,25 or vmode 13) Then setting the full screen to 320x200 in the cfg makes the text nice and crisp. I think …

Force 320x200(ish) VGA text mode

I got a PocketCHIP on the cheap recently and I wanted to turn it into a portable dos machine. Because the PocketCHIP's screen is an odd 480x272 resolution the machine is only really suited for 320x200/240 gaming, which is ok with me, but I am running into an issue. While the games work/look OK, the …
