Red Alert 2 and Starcraft and Half-Life and Warcraft 2 BNE, but well i can play them all in my Windows 7 box.

I am aroused about any X86 motherboard that has full functional ISA slot. I think i have problem. Not really into that original (Turbo) XT,286,386 and CGA/EGA stuff. So just a DOS nut.

Strictly Win9x titles
Age of Empires 2
Diablo/Diablo2
NFS3, NFS4, Porsche

Dos games (which seems to have entered the list) 😉
Doom/Doom2
Duke3D
Warcraft 2

My most favourite game though is C&C or RA1 although play this in XP now with the First Decade Patch.

What are peoples thoughts on Doom95? I still mainly play the vanilla dos version but fired up the Win95 version earlier this week and quite liked the better resolution.
On the one hand its a legit retro release, on the other i felt if I'm doing this may as well just play on a more modern port.

There was a C&C Gold which ran natively under Windows 9x and had higher resolution graphics and better unit/building portraits.

As for RA, that game also had a separate Win9x executable on the disc, and could be used in a similar manner as C&C Gold if installed that way.

Yeah, I like it. I have it with Doom 2 that came in the same bundle. With hundreds of other map wads on another disk.

Yeh know about the 9x versions but always preferred the dos version even back then as the units just felt too small (probably because I was so used to C&C dos )
It was the fan patch with all the added content like the console missions, videos, etc that finally got me to convert.

Doom95 is awesome for a low-weight low-maintenance port. I cannot stand to play DOOM in 320x200 on large modern LCDs. 640x400/480 is just double but it makes a whole lot of difference. And the extra cheat codes (kill all monsters / activate no-target mode) are also nice. In DOS I only play MBF, which is like BOOM with the high resolution option. And I wish there was a DOS equivalent of MBF that runs Heretic/Hexen.

On Win9x Doom95 is a good go-to port. On modern Windows, Crispy Doom is a better option, due to better compatibility and more features.

- "Heroes of Might and Magic III Complete".

Also, there is a current fan-made add-on, called "Horn of the Abbys". A couple of friends and I have resumed the rite (we used to play it hot seat mode, 20 years ago) of playing it on weekends (when it is possible).
Can be played on current systems (W10, no troubles) with the "HD" add-on and receives updates constantly.
I recommend it to the ones here who mentioned Heroes of Might and Magic series!
