Re: Bought these games today

in Milliways
Darklands It's complete (even includes the promotional stuff in the box), but the important thing is that the manual and gorgeous map are included and in perfect condition. This is a case where I could have likely printed out the manual, but I wanted the map in its original size and in full color. …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I remember reading in another thread here that it took a 600Mhz P3 to play fullscreen SVGA completely smoothly. Out of interest I installed it on my Cyrix MII 300 (233MHz) which runs Duke3D smoothly in SVGA, and Blood pretty well too. CM is definitely playable but not as smooth as I'd like if I was …

I'm glad you're enjoying it. Reminds me of my last playthrough. :) This game required a powerful Pentium-based computer to run properly at the time. I don't know if it selled well, but the review from a local magazine back then gave the game quite a lot of praises, but regretted the beefy setup …

CyberMage I just completed the 4th scene (level), called MetaCop, and am now back at The City. I'm really liking this game! I played MetaCop in SVGA with the screen downsized twice, and it was pretty playable on my P200MMX (mostly because it was mainly indoors). Since The City is mostly outdoors, I …

CyberMage I'm 4.5 hours in and have made it to the 4th Scene. I'm really liking this game! And still, it reminds me of a combination of Duke3D and System Shock I. I've gotten pretty comfortable with the controls, but it's still clunky enough that I have to reposition my hands and glance at the …

I wish I could discover it again for the first time. :D Yeah, same here. :) I'm playing off my original CD that I bought in '95. I don't remember a lot about it from back in the day, I think this was a game I bought because it was from Origin and I was an Origin fanboy, then tried it for a day or …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I'm very interested in how CyberMage goes. I remember playing a demo included with PC Gamer magazine back in the day, and not understanding it at all lol. I do believe that it was designed by D.W. Bradley of Wizardry V-VII fame! Yep, it was! So far it's more FPS than anything and it's about on par …

Well, after 31 hours I think I'm going to DNF Betrayal at Krondor. I'll keep my save and maybe return to it sometime, but probably not for a long while. The pacing is too slow for me. I prefer a little more exploration and combat and a little less story. There's a lot of reading and a lot to …

Out of that list I think the only ones worth looking at are Tomb Raider 2013 and Metro : Last Light. Don't get me wrong I loved a great deal of that list at the time of release, but some of them are just demonstrations of the frustrating design caveats of the time. Some games are best left in the …

Re: Betrayal at Krondor speed sensitiveness

in DOS
All I can say is the game is composed for the SC-55 (GM), not the MT-32, so one problem is being traded for another.. I've never had a problem with BaK on DOSBox with GM, though. Never tried with original hardware. I don't imagine that you would have a problem in DOSBox since the speed is …

Betrayal at Krondor speed sensitiveness

in DOS
I just realized that Betrayal at Krondor is not as speed sensitive as I thought when you use the MT-32. I'm actually playing on my 200MMX without any slowdown settings enabled. It appears to be a General MIDI thing with my X2 daughterboard. Music gets all jacked up and the game gets unstable with GM …

Also, running some Doom2 in-between the HOMM2 missions. Just to break things up a bit. I've always struggled with the episodic nature of many DOS FPS like the Dooms, Quake, Duke3D, etc. When I finish the first episode, I feel like I won and the desire to continue the next episode goes away. Well, I …

i'm about half way through unreal (gold) playing on the p3/gf2. first time playing and i'm really enjoying it. some puzzles are twisting my head but i put that down to the big maps. my god what a soundtrack too... Couldn't agree more. Great game, the atmosphere, soundtrack, tension, etc. I played …

Re: What game are you playing now?

RE: Betrayal at Krondor If you decide to play this game, it is speed sensitive, so your system can't be faster than a slow 486. At least on my system it works out that way. MIDI music gets jacked up if I don't run SETMUL CCD on my P200MMX, which works out to about a 16Mhz 486. I think even with FM …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Never played Cybermage myself, but I remember learning the hard way, that video card speed matters much less than CPU speed when it goes to unaccelerated, texture mapped games in 640x480 resolution and above. I remember purchasing a Matrox Mystique video card, and got disappointed when it failed to …
