Re: Why do some old games has no in-game music in it?

in Windows
I always thought Half-Life didn't have music until I got the Steam version many years later. For some reason the CD music never played and I thought the game was just silent for the atmosphere. Nowadays I can't even stand playing it with the music on, it feels so off.

Re: Xcom : UFO Defense on CD (CD-i)

in DOS
A lot of things are not accurate at Mobygames, it for example calls the original title "UFO: Enemy Unknown" the "european" title and insists on the game being called X-COM UFO Defence. It's like saying "It's the Sorcerer's Stone not Philosopher's Stone!111". At least it offers some good things like …

Re: Which Win version for late 90's games?

in Windows
XP should be the most compatible with late 90's games, other than that you can also further downgrade to Windows 2000 or Windows 98, as long as you have all drivers available for those OS versions. Though, most games should still sort-of work on Windows 10. Especially with the "Integer Scaling" mode …

Re: img to iso

Re: Which software to preserve CDs?

You can't even use .iso if your game-CD contains audio tracks, like WarCraft II, Dungeon Keeper, Fury³ and many more... Really? I have a different game called Q-POP, the CD contains Audio that you can also play back in a real CD Player, works just fine as .iso as well. Well, really. ISO can't have …

Re: Which software to preserve CDs?

@darry @Benedikt the programme I use is called ImgBurn https://www.imgburn.com/ It's basically 1 click to create an .iso file from any CD. Interesting to know that .iso doesn't support audio tracks by default, but whatever that programme does when it creates the .iso makes it work, so it's still a …
