I have the Ultima Collection CD - contains Akabaleth, Ultima 1-8 and seemingly Ultima 9 (though I recall seeing that the cd only had a bit of U9 really).
Been playing around with it on my k6/3 machine in Windows 98, but I'm not always getting sound and for example Utima 8 simply refuses to run, DOS mode or otherwise.
Rather than fiddle with the setup of that particular PC which, subject to needing a complete reinstall and solving a few other issues, is pretty much "there" as far as I am concerned, I am wondering about putting together another box to run Ultima (and maybe other things too). So my question is: what would be good hardware to run the Ultima collection?
I'm not convinced it wouldnt just be a complete waste of time to build something specifically for Ultima - I am not an Ultima fan, it just looked interesting - and there are other projects I could use the hardware for. So my second question is, if I was to go for Dosbox instead, what sort of hardware would I need to run Ultima 1-8?
