Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

With how ubiquitous OpenTTD is these days, I think a post in your YouTube channel's Community tab clarifying why you find it to be legally-dubious is in order. I mean, I understand why you feel that way - unlike with, say, Daggerfall Unity, even without the original files (or the open-source …

Ancient DOS Games Episode 284 - Transport Tycoon Deluxe is online! This week was kinda bad for me in real life so it's kinda crazy that I managed to push this video out, but it also meant I didn't have time to go back and address something which popped up while writing the script... After re-reading …

Ancient DOS Games Pro 19 - System Shock Minigames is online! You might think this would make for a short video, but you'd be wrong! Some of the seven minigames in System Shock actually have quite a bit more going on than at first glance! So, I decided to take some time to detail all the things I …

Ancient DOS Games Episode 283 - The Black Cauldron is online! When you first learn that this is an AGI game WITHOUT the text parser, you kinda wonder just how easy it's going to be, but it turns out... no, it's not easy. Granted, it's not nearly as egregious as some Sierra AGI games, for instance, …

Ancient DOS Games Pro 18 - Damage Tables - Mega Man I & III is online! Having solid info about your weapons when playing a game ALWAYS helps to determine the best way through, but the original two DOS Mega Man games didn't really suit themselves well for even wanting to use any of them. Still, maybe …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 282 - Omega is online! Sometimes I think people might get the wrong impression when I tell them I'm a programmer that because of that component of my skill set I must enjoy playing games which are focussed around programming. Well... no. To me, programming is WORK and I …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

While limiting the string length is very, very trivial to do on open source Linux drivers, it's virtually impossible to configure on proprietary drivers on Windows. I'm fairly certain DXWnd can do this, as I use that program for a bunch of old Win9x and even a couple WinXP games on my Windows 10 …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 281 - Hexen is online! (Please note that this is a mature-rated video.) So... time to answer the burning question some of you undoubtedly have: What the Hell happened to me this month?! Very early in the month I slipped on some black ice and severely injured my right upper …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Filler #86 - Cube World - 2021 Followup is online! OK, as an indie dev myself, I had to speak up about this one. The hate thrown out against the Sep 2019 release of this game on Steam has been absolutely ludicrous and disgusting on so many levels for what is a perfectly playable …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 280: A-10 Tank Killer is online! I started encountering issues with this game right from the get-go and was initially thinking this was going to be a fairly negative episode, but something struck me as odd when I was reading some of the readme details about how the original …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Mod 9 - Daggerfall Unity is online! Yup, without a scrap of the original source code and LOTS of effort by tons of people, Daggerfall Unity has finally reached a feature-complete state! As such, this has absolutely become the best way to play Daggerfall, not just because of its …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 279 - Zork Nemesis is online! So... Zork Nemesis was not only the very first Zork game I ever played as a kid, but I only ever owned the demo version and I really enjoyed it, but never got around to acquiring or playing the full game. Heck, I never even looked into what the …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Pro 17 - Minimum Winning Score - Dangerous Dave is online! So, I play through Dangerous Dave about once or twice a year just for the heck of it, but something I'd never thought to try until recently was to go for a "Minimum Winning Score" run, beating the game collecting as few …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Happy New Year, everyone! :D Time to get back into the swing of Ancient DOS Games with the first new ADG video of the year: Episode 278 - Zeliard I actually finally got hold of this game several months back, but wanted to wait until now to do a video on it because I had a feeling it would be perfect …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Filler #85 - Crystal Caves HD is online! So... wasn't quite expecting to make this followup this soon, but Apogee decided to send me a free copy completely out of the blue, no strings attached, so... here we are! :D The funny thing is this actually turned out to be a much more …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Filler #84 - End of 2020 Update is online! This is just a quick video talking about what to expect for the rest of the year and how I intend to handle the whole "seasons" thing going forward. :B Also... Some clarification. It looks like GOG used the UK release of the game. The " …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 277 - Realms of the Haunting is online! So, I already had an idea of what I was getting myself into with this game, but despite that, I was kind of both pleasantly surprised and surprisingly disappointed at the same time. This is game with some extremely fine attention to …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Pro 16 - AI Investigation - Stunts / 4D Sports Driving is online! I kinda went into this one expecting it to turn out fairly mundane and got a little more than I bargained for! Yeah, turns out the AI in Stunts isn't as well balanced as it would have you believe and many of the …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 276 - SWIV 3D is online! Here's a game I originally played the demo of a long time ago and really enjoyed, but for the longest time I never got to play the full game, and now that I have... well... I like it for sure but MAN is this thing hard! It's that special kind of …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Ancient DOS Games Episode 275 - Crystal Caves is online! So... I'd never actually played Crystal Caves until this week... :O I'm not really sure exactly why I missed it, though I think my logic as a kid with limited modem bandwidth was that I'd rather play the newer stuff than the older stuff. …
