Re: Most beautiful Dos-Games for a 486...what are your favorites?

in DOS
Wow... There's a lot of beautiful DOS games. In general, Japanese games made good use of bitmaps, but there were games that were comparable to Western ones. I just happen to know a lot of beautiful looking DOS games. But I played very few of them (lol) I feel like that Sam & Max: Hit the Road is …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Grim Fandango is my go to game. I run it on my Aptiva 433 with a patch. I like to use the “Test Your Hardware” feature in the start menu to see if my machine is good enough. Like others it’s not about the game so much as it is about the machine. I'm planning to play that game soon after I finish …

Re: VGA custom resolution

320x400 is indeed possible on every VGA, but the original question was about square pixels and pixels that are 2/3 wider than tall are quite far away from that. You're right. Sorry, I missed that part. :sweatdrop: Just checked my DOS programs and "2SHOW" graphics viewer supports this 360x480 @256c …

Re: Adventure games for beginners

Leisure Suit Larry (the first one) is actually very beginner-friendly with puzzles that make sense. It's probably the "easiest" of the Sierra adventures, and is very fair. The AGI version even has a much better parser than most Sierra games. LSL is actually one of the most unforgiving, there are …
