Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

@solraeck & Fenix77 - gentlemen, I know your intentions are good and indeed parts of the copyright system don't make sense, especially in the context of fast changes in IT world. Personally, I regret a little bit that this interferes with our efforts here, but I am not too surprised. However, we …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

I was able to find some time to dust off my Tandon machine with Hercules card and do some tinkering. The results are below: I confirm that Outrun runs on real hardware: HGC_Outrun.jpg Some copies on the internet are lacking required files for HGC and therefore don't run. Just download largest …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

I had nothing better to do today, so I was looking at all different CGA emulators/simulators. If you find others, please let me know. We might as well plaster them here too :D You're a magician, really! Thank you very much for your effort, it's incredible. I will check if I have anything else when …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

Hello friends, I'm really glad that this thread continues. ^^ Hey Jo22, good to see you around still! Thanks for all the titles, I'll try to check at least some of them. Recently I have less time for my retro hobby, but Hercules has a special place in my heart and I really like this thread and …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

here you are Thank you kindly! This is going to be very useful for anyone intending to emulate CGA on their Hercules cards. I appreciate it a lot! Look how beautiful hires monochrome on Mac looks: https://youtu.be/YicfqCx5m-k Beside that Atari-ST monochrome is also great too if it's really hires …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

Getting some great ideas for stuff to try on my PC-4600, though that suffers from massive blur issues. It does have CGA, but appears to support Herc as well. I wonder actually if CGA simulation in Herc mode would give better displays in some instances, since default it doesn't seem to greyscale or …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

I wrote a loader that fixes the hercules option in OUTRUN here Brilliant, thank you very much! You're awesome. I will give this version a test ride on real Hercules hardware when I have a moment (might be until weekend) and post photos here. This is a good thread to collect everything hercules :D …

Re: FastDoom. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

Could someone try this on 386? I used to play Doom on 386DX 40MHz ca. 93-94 and it was smooth enough that I do not remember any stuttering or slowdowns. However, when looking on the internet these days, it seems barely playable on 386. Either my memory is seriously failing me or there 's some other …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

Please do not post links to pirated software. Duly noted. My apologies, they had images that I was to lazy to copy here. In other news, here is interesting case of a CGA game totally relevant to this thread - Rockford . Its creators didn't care about the colour mode, but focused on "how is it going …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules monochrome games

The mode 5 palette was actually not that rare. It seemed particularly common in French games, for some reason (maybe because it's as close as CGA gets to the tricoleur ? 🇫🇷) ;) Could you list a few? I have a soft spot for French games (Silmarils, Kalisto, Loriciels etc.). I should make my own list …
