Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 304 - Memory Hog Hunter is online! I was a little worried about this one at first because when I started trying to look into this thing's history I was finding virtually NOTHING. I even went looking through old issues of PC Magazine for advertisements through Google Books …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 303 - Shadow Knight is online! I'm going to guess 99% of you have never heard of this one, nor should you have. It is unfinished, buggy, shovelware, which by all accounts would've likely stayed buried for the rest of eternity... ...except despite everything, this game has …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Nah, that's the native windows version. The freeware version was only ever the Windows version. Really? There's remnants in the freeware release on Steam suggesting there was a DOSBox-based release at least briefly... Hmm... ...or, it really could just be remnants from originally preparing the …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

On a side note, the freeware Windows version is not only available through Steam; IIRC it was released as such some time before appearing on Steam as a stand-alone download, which is still available from here: https://www.ausgamers.com/files/download/48016/death-rally-free-full-game That might be …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 302 - Death Rally is online! So... I'd never actually played this game until now... :O Not really sure why I passed it up when I was younger. I think a part of it was that I was under the false impression that this was a Duke Nukem racing game and that didn't really appeal …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Pro 23 - Speedrun Strats - Donald Duck's Playground is online! So, this is a video I tried to make quite awhile back, but it turns out there's a TON of nuance with how this game works which I was failing to consider, which ultimately derailed all the progress I made late in …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Season 7 of Ancient DOS Games has begun! We're kicking things off this time around with Episode 301 - 3D Lemmings ! So, the funny thing is... I actually MUCH prefer this iteration of Lemmings over any of the others, even though it's often considered to be the weakest entry. Heck, even at the time, …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

I'm very much excited for this because I think Godot is hopefully going to use Vulkan and the Vulkan driver for Intel Graphics on Linux has gotten a lot of surprising bug fixes when Mesa 22.1.1 released. Actually, no. Godot 4.0 will be using Vulkan, but we're still a ways off from that milestone. …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Notifications - I rely on none of the things you mentioned. I have pixelships bookmarked and I check there once a week to see if there's a new ADG episode. That works. I also have an RSS feed on my website if that's an option you'd prefer! :B I don’t have any online accounts so I’m not allowed to …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Filler #92 - What's Next for Season 7 is online, marking the final video for Season 6 of the series! Yeah... I never really expected Season 6 to just... keep going like that. I think the main thing was that Season 6 was just sort of "comfortable" in terms of how my assets for it …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 300 - Tomb Raider is online! So, my original plans for Episode 300 were to do mass coverage of most/all of the Tommy's Toys games, but unfortunately, the website for them didn't manage to survive to this point and the archived copies don't have any intact downloads, so... …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Pro 22 - Mana Investigation - Magic Carpet is online! I actually had to record THREE separate sets of footage for this one as I continually ran into stumbling blocks every step of the way, as Magic Carpet is actually doing more under the hood than I realized, prompting me to …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 299 - Helious & Helious II is online! When I started playing through this game again for this video, I re-read through the entirety of Sean's story about how this game came to be, which I hadn't done in ages, fully expecting to have to make fun of the whole alien-encounter …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Mod 10 - Making a MegaZeux Game is online! Yep... that's why it took four weeks to make this video, as I was also making an ENTIRE GAME in MegaZeux! :O I honestly thought I could do it in two weeks as it only took two DAYS to get the main mechanics in place that I wanted to use, …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Filler #91 - No More NES Slowdown/Flickering! is online! So for the ADG Mod video I had originally planned to bring out today I'm making a brand new game using a particular DOS gamedev tool, but said game is only about halfway done as I write this, thus I need more time to get it …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 298 - Chex Quest is online! Given that Chex has been one of my favourite cereals for virtually two decades you'd think I'd've played this thing before now, but nope! This was my first time diving into this game and I was a bit surprised to see that, despite technically …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

As an owner of the Steam version of Sonic Adventure DX, I'm curious whether the fact SEGA permits the conversion mod under the stipulation you covered on the filler episode means that, by proxy, anyone who owns the Steam version of Sonic Adventure DX also has the licenses to the emulated Game Gear …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Filler #90 - Tails Adventure is online! I kinda wanted to kick back with a favourite of mine given that the past couple weeks have been kinda crazy for me, world events notwithstanding as there's a LOT of stupid going on right now... >_>; Tails Adventure seemed like a good pick as …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 297 - Beneath a Steel Sky is online! From what little I knew about this game going in, I kinda expected something with a bit of a serious tone to it... ...what I DIDN'T expect was for the serious tone it had to be counterbalanced with equally SILLY tones! o_O Yeah, really …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 296 - Depth Dwellers is online! (Please note this is a mature-rated episode.) So... THIS game... I think it's safe to say EVERYONE who grew up playing DOS games in the 90s is at least somewhat familiar with this title, as it was freaking EVERYWHERE, at least, the shareware …
