Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 292 - Afterlife is online! I think I got the jewel case and strategy guide at a garage sale. You mention that the DOS and Macintosh versions are confusing to differentiate. That was a significant problem for me when I was looking for a copy of DarkSeed II. Concerning …

Re: MobyGames Database Question

Too few entries - These don't have the "Game List- view complete list" link. I can add "list-games/" to the address bar to get to the more detailed page it would have taken me to. Too many entries - I saw elsewhere that site members have the option to list 100 games per page. I wouldn't have thought …

MobyGames Database Question

I figure someone might know of a faster way to do this. I want a list of every game for a given platform. One issue is too few entries. If I select a system with around 200 games I get a short list of titles without a link for more details. So if I want the years I also have to filter by that and …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

It kind of split into two different but related series. And then they didn't go any further with them for some reason. The series is the fight against the 3 Serpent Riders. Heretic features D'Sparil. SotSR shows Corvus' banishment and Heretic 2 is his return after Hexen 2 takes place. Hexen …

Ancient DOS Games Episode 271 - The Fortress of Dr. Radiaki is online! I have the floppy version. I have beaten this game. There are toaster headed robots. Most of the time I ignored level design and navigated by map. If you are too close to a wall when you save you could load inside the wall. I …

Ancient DOS Games Episode 263 - XF5700 Mantis Experimental Fighter is online! I wonder how far you got while playing the game. At one point you defeat the Sirians and the rest of the game you fight the Rexum Empire. I thought the game was rather easy until then. I just loaded up on missiles and …

Ancient DOS Games Filler #65 - Descent 3 is online! My memory of this game is that the controls were way too slippery. The level design wasn't nearly as interesting as the previous games. The train level was a nightmare. The combat felt messy in the new environments. And while I could still enjoy …

Re: Did you ever buy an "empty" box ???

In the 90s there was a store called Toy Land. They had a mix of new toys and ones from the previous decade like Ultraman, Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad, Computer Warriors, Centurions, Sectaurs, or Sky Commanders. They also had one isle for damaged packaging. I had bought an Air Raiders vehicle from …

Need a database program

in DOS
I've been given a 5 1/4" floppy. There is one file named MEMBERS.DB that is 44 kb in size. What are some programs that might have created it? Is there a modern method for viewing its contents?

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

I know the light bridges well. What you described is what I was referring to. I'm thinking more in terms of basic knowledge on how to use a mouse. Point and click are common practice. Click and drag may not have been as common but did have examples at the time. It's less a matter of no other puzzles …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

The Dig can definitely get tedious. It gives you a lot to do but so little of it leads to any progress in the story. The worst part for me was the light bridges. Click and drag for the bones was something Windows does yet back in the DOS era I can see how that would have been an advanced control …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Filler #54 - Slime Rancher is online! Jim Sterling also sings positively about that Slime Rancher game and thats a good sign. I've had Slime Rancher from the Humble Bundle store since the Jim Sterling video. It has it's own download there in 32 and 64 bits plus includes a Steam …
