Re: Huge "zoom out" games list

in Milliways
I updated Abuse SDL port in 2016 to do that: The fun thing is that the original releases of Abuse (prior to v2.0) also had the same feature with resolutions of at least up to 1280x1024 supported. This was eventually only reserved for the level editor, but earlier versions' readme files even contain …

Re: Warcraft 1 user-made maps

in Milliways
There is even source available :) http://www.polanie.prv.pl I would sure like to know more! Was the game officially open sourced and released as freeware? I cannot open your link somehow (not even a 404 error), but can kinda view old snapshots via the Wayback Machine. My knowledge of Polish is …

Re: There is no successor to Warcraft II

There's also the Hungarian "indie" shareware Warcraft clone/inspired game called The Dark Legions (not related to the turn-based dark fantasy game published by SSI), which is quite playable as far as I can tell (judging by the shareware version ). BTW you can get the full version off Steam. The 3D …

Re: For Duke Nukem 3D/classic first person shooter fans

in Milliways
There's endless debate on the 'net about what makes a Duke game a 'Duke' game. Like you I don't care about 'adult' things like swearing and (extrememely low-rez, 2D) semi-nudity, and to me Duke was done best in the N64 game Duke Nukem: Zero Hour (not to be confused with the totally different fan- …

Re: For Duke Nukem 3D/classic first person shooter fans

in Milliways
Admittedly I only watched the video and haven't played the mod myself, but I got the impression that it generally misses, rather than manages to capture the gameplay flow of the original Duke3D , especially concerning combat. I basically consider Serious Sam to be the true Duke3D sequel. Or maybe …

Re: Browsing the past with Wayback Machine

in Milliways
Oh yes, I've been very active at using the WM as soon as I realised that you could retrieve files (demos, shareware etc.) from there, which was some time ago already. I've been documenting the findings here and some stuff also here . This way I would sometimes come across some pretty rare stuff too, …

Re: There is no successor to Warcraft II

in Milliways
Some kind of Polish Warcraft 1 clone, but seems to have modern controls, bad thing that is only in Polish. Else i would play it gladly, because it is DOS game. You can grab a couple of shareware versions here (the game was re-released on CD with some changes/improvements and that version got its …

Re: There is no successor to Warcraft II

in Milliways
So I noticed the other day that Loria is now available at GOG.com including a playable demo which I grabbed and played a bit (now at campaign mission 3; there's also one skirmish map). As of the time of writing this the version is 1.2.0 So far I've got rather mixed feelings about this. The art is …

Re: Kaos - an obscure Italian Doom/Wolf3D clone for DOS

in Milliways
Sad to hear that a full version is not uncovered, yet. There is no full version. The devs released the latest build in 2003 as a bonus on a coverdisk that came with The Games Machine (Italian gaming mag). I used Google translate to plough through the documents in the zip that I found and I have …

Looks like there's a German version of Ford Simulator specifically featuring Ford Fiesta (ford.zip), which is kind of similar to the original thing but actually has different graphics:

Kaos - an obscure Italian Doom/Wolf3D clone for DOS

in Milliways
Yesterday I was watching some videos of obscure (and mostly bad) DOS-era first-person shooters when a game called Kaos caught my attention: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-A7ZhdcYV0 It turns out that a small team of Italian developers were working on this game in the 90s with a view on selling it …

Re: Looking for Pie 3D GCS games

in Milliways
I just found a different YouTube channel (was looking for records of Gary Acord games, believe it or not) with lots of streamed FPS titles of mostly low quality, including a number of 3D GCS titles: https://www.youtube.com/user/ChineseTonyDanza/videos
