Re: Are we opening sealed copies of old games?

in Milliways
I have nearly 300 big box PC games (going to downsize a hefty portion that I don't really play soon), and I am extremely anal about everything regarding them. Anything that came with the box a long time ago, including shrinkwrap, price stickers, ancient printed supplements, receipts all stay in the …

Re: YOUR favorate game era.

in Milliways
By far, the best era for DOS/Windows games was 1993-2006 in terms of quality. I have tons of physical DOS games from before then and from the 1980s that are good, but pre-1990 DOS games (except maybe Stunts, Test Drive, etc.) aren't as playable. Though regarding Amiga, pretty much all Amiga games …

Re: What's the dumbest retro mistake you've made?

in Milliways
Only mistake was a couple years ago. I was trying to restore a Fujitsu Lifebook C352 that I had that would not boot to a prompt at all despite multiple efforts and multiple repairs. Was taking it apart and I got to the small cable connecting the fan to the mobo, yanked it out too hard and it broke …

Re: Your least used complete vintage system

in Milliways
I bought a machine with a Voodoo3 in it a couple years ago, unfortunately for now I do not have enough room or time to set it up due to being in college/living in a dorm, but I will play the crap out of it once I got an actual place set up and once I stop being nomadic

Re: what will you do when your last hardware fails?

in Milliways
I am a purist when it comes to getting parts for my old systems, but in a last ditch effort, I would simply just buy new parts to replace them. A lot of people are starting to make new parts for old systems nowadays, especially stuff for Amiga/early DOS

Re: Trying to source physical copies of games

in Milliways
Tyrian 2000 is absolute bullshit hard to find, I'm looking for that one too, and original Tyrian was only released in a big box overseas. You know what's funny is that I actually saw a US big box Tyrian 2000 in a lot with a bunch of other heavy hitter (e.g. usually expensive) big box PC games that …

Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

in Milliways
I'm going to upgrade my 1050ti to a 3080 (along with my i5-7500 to a Ryzen, of course a motherboard + PSU upgrade, and replacing my modern gaming case with a "modern" sleeper case) just to play a couple newer games that I'm interested in. Most stuff put out nowadays is complete garbage, so it's a …

Re: Interesting Steam releases of games?

in Milliways
there's a lot of interesting Steam games now that there's little to no regulation on what a game dev or a "game dev" can release but relating to the main gist of this forum, there are interesting older games like Redline, Shogo, Blood II, etc. that Steam just has out to purchase, but you have to …

Re: Problematic Windows games list

in Windows
Gearhead Garage and NIRA Intense Import Drag Racing should be on this list for Windows 10 64-bit. I managed to get GHG working after finding a backroads workaround on GOG forums. It's a huge hassle though. I haven't even managed to get NIRA to work, but some people apparently have, and the folks …

Re: Trying to get Gearhead Garage working on Windows 10, help!

in Windows
I want to bump this thread almost a year later and finally say that I managed to get it working on Windows 10 thanks to a GOG user called "pkkilleru." This is an especially hard game and a weird outlier to get running, so I think this thread should be up for everyone to see who wants to play this …

Re: Cyberjudas

I got it running by running an image of the ISO on a virtual drive with Daemon Tools Lite and then mounting the virtual drive in DOSBox and ran it through there. DOSBox already has an "imgmount" command for mounting CD images. interesting, I never tried using the imgmount command before. Thanks for …

Re: Cyberjudas

I emulated CyberJudas before through DOSBox and it's a weird way to get it running. I got it running by running an image of the ISO on a virtual drive with Daemon Tools Lite and then mounting the virtual drive in DOSBox and ran it through there. Might be a similar thing that you need to do with …
