Got mine in 99? Was my first purchase working at a computer store after finishing school. Cant remember the price but got it at cost. Iomega Zip 650 4x 4x 24x I was one of the last out of my circle of computer friends who were a few years older so had been working longer. But was the first out of my …

Tinkering and escaping back to earlier/simpler times are definitely the main motivations. Not been able to afford current hardware even before the currant crazy prices helps keep me where I belong.

Re: I build too many computers

Ah that's one thing I don't do. I don't use my Win7 gaming PC to surf the web. Steam is the only thing that connects to the outside world. Not that I 've blocked anything.

If you already have the making of a Pentium MMX I wouldn't worry about OPL on this. For my P4 Win98 rig I kept it simple and just have the Audigy 2 ZS.

Re: Desert strike roland canvas or mt32

It's all just guess work on my part. but I can imagine an Amiga port not been the best coded game and maybe midi communication happing faster then the game expects or can handle.
