Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

While searching for info on Gobliiins and the Hercules version on the internet, I have found this interesting bit concerning DOSBox development: https://github.com/86Box/86Box/issues/260 It is interesting to compare screenshots without the patch: Gobliiins without patch.png with the blend patch: …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

All right, I confirm, Gobliins works on Hercules graphics card (don't mind orange tint, that's my phone's camera playing tricks): Gobliiins_Herc.jpg I also took some other games for a ride, so here are screens of Drakkhen on Hercules: Drakhein_Herc.jpg Didn't know Frédérick Raynal worked on it! One …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

Yes, that video is dope. Really wish it was in higher resolution (and possibly amber... :) ). Arctic Fox blew my mind back in the day! Thanks, I didn't know this game! In other news, I have recalled that Gobliiins had Hercules graphics option, but not every copy available on the internet still does …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

sorry for the "raw" material...native hercules via sometimes tweaked cga-emulation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vix4DRCoNHM First of all, thank you for adding information and participating in this thread. This is very useful! Also, I feel like a part of a fanclub of Hercules card, it's nice. …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

We should split the thread. Hercules native+cga-emulation...and real cga. Please don't. If you check my opening post, the intention was to find games that work well on monochrome screens (I should have put it in the title), both Hercules and CGA plus all the CGA games that can be played on Hercules …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

By the way, do you agree that it's a shame that the developers of the HGC never bothered to implement a graphics mode that supported both brightness levels for individual pixels, like it did in text mode? I do agree. HGC already had 64 KB of RAM, enough for 720x348x2bpp, so implementing such a mode …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

I'm surprised no one has mentioned text-based games. For some reason, I really itch to play Infocom with that green or amber glow. It might be fun to try to get Telnet games working, too. MUD2 is free these days ;) (Though I vastly prefer it in color.) That's fairly obvious case. I myself don't …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

Hey guys, thank you so much for adding new information to this thread and keeping it alive. I had a bit of various problems to tackle these last few months, which explains radio silence. Shamus (1984) Jet (1985) Thanks! https://www.mobygames.com/images/shots/l/169-the-ancient-art-of-war-dos- …

Not great, not terrible. Seems to take significantly more space to display same content - not great. Is generally pretty and usable - not terrible. Suggestions: how about some more compact theme? Also, how about some other colour scheme, such as green on black or some dark grey one?
