Re: Favorite forgotten games

PC speaker music is impressive too, check it out! I played around a bit with the sound settings in that game and felt like the "DAC on LPT1" (which I gather is Covox Speech Thing or somesuch) gives the best sound/music quality. If you like Boulder Dash clones, you might want to check out Digger ( …

Re: Favorite forgotten games

A couple of games that I remember fondly but are not widely known / appreciated are Heartlight (smaller, simpler Boulderdash-type game) I wouldn't really call Heartlight a "simpler" game. Rather, it's a sub-type of Boulder Dash variants that is more puzzle-oriented, with each level confined to a …

I just noticed that dosgames.com also lists games with available source code: https://dosgames.com/tag/sourcecode A lot of obscure stuff there I didn't know about.

Will Rock had serious mouse input problems with the framerate pacing back then Perhaps my relative inexperience with FPS games of the time prevented me from noticing that. I don't remember any serious performance or gameplay issues, it worked well and I completed the singleplayer campaign several …

Re: Favorite forgotten games

Given my interest in obscure titles, some of the stuff I like might have not been well known in the first place, so it'd be hard to talk about "forgotten". But I'm getting the impression that Will Rock is such an unduly forgotten game. Sure it's a Serious Sam clone in an Ancient Grome setting, but …

Re: Windows port from DOS games

in DOS
Hope it's okay to res this thread, for the potential usefulness of the information. A while ago I attempted to compile my own list, called (probably somewhat confusingly, but I was aiming at the lowest common denominator of the userbase) DOS games that don't need DOSBox to run in Windows The list …

Re: Authorised fan remakes of/sequels to games

There's alleged 'written permission from CBS' about the data distribution. The port's not quite a recreation (Elite Force used idtech3 with bink/mp3 additions), but just a patch that implements the holomatch binary's functions and traps to get the multi game working (with huge accuracy issues in …

https://m.majorgeeks.com/files/details/millennium_remake.html Amazing remake of the amazing game Millennium. :) Nice, but where does it say that the remake was authorised by the creators of the original game? Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force has had it's multi-player portion released freely to the …
