Recently installed Carmageddon 2: Carpocalypse Now on '98. It stated that QT was required "for optimal performance" or similar, and to install it. Chose not to install, game seemed to run just fine. What's missing?

Maybe it's needed for the intro movie. Did you see it?

Here's my list. It's not complete.

Connections

Came here to say Connections but you beat me to it (by some months, even). Loved the TV show. I still need to finish that game.

Good question - can't remember now. I'll load it up again soon and check, but that would make sense.

Interesting how it was semi-negotiable, in that you could play the game without installing a major component. Imagine that happening these days...

On the topic of the original Myst, there was a making of video on the CD that was very interesting and gives some insight into just how small a crew they were and how they were able to do great things without a lot of resources. There is a copy on YouTube: https://youtu.be/CGN2W7o1N2s

That was an interesting watch, thanks for sharing 😀

I would never have guessed that the game was using 8-bit paletted images. I should try playing it again, and see if I can actually solve a single puzzle this time around 😜

I can add two more:

Under Windows 3.11 (not compatible to Windows 95 and newer):

- XPLORA1: Peter Gabriel's Secret World

Under Windows 95 (not compatible to Windows 3.11 and earlyer)

- Peter Gabriel's EVE

So a big big big Peter Gabriel fan (like me) needs Windows 3.11 and 95. I have both games here in original boxes.
