Imperfect solutions, a thread to clear your conscience

in Milliways
I have an 5ali61 board but not the original IO back plates. I found it very hard to find any ps/2 connector plates. Only something proprietary like this for around 30 $... hp-serial-ps2-adapter.jpg I ended up buying some loose ps2 connectors from China which I at some point will fixate to a back …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
tried playing 'the nomad soul', a very interesting game set in an early 'open world' (which isn't really that open), is probably the only game where the player can choose to attend a bowie concert with original material. It's a 3rd person rpg/action hybrid with an element of collect & do things to …

Re: Some help understanding config.sys

in DOS
Ok I was a bit unclear sorry. I was wondering if you can initialize the driver after DOS has already started, if I were to choose an other option Me realized later that I needed usb support. (Also I could use this to remove the usb device and reconnect it without having to restart DOS and initialize …

Some help understanding config.sys

in DOS
Hi Is it possible to initiate a driver that usually is initiated from config.sys in DOS 6.22 prompt? Maybe through a batch file? For instance I would like to be able to load this usb driver for dos at any time. Filename IMG_20210507_202347.jpg File size 1.44 MiB Views 139 views

Re: Specs advice for my new retro-pc

I tried Phil's pif but it somehow locked me out of windows 98 after I installed a driver. I really would not recommend using tools like it if you don't understand what they do. Personally I got myself an other SD card to boot DOS 6.2 from with Phil's DOS boot menu. Which I modified with the Teac …

Strangest thing found on harddrives

in Milliways
So I have just started buying old hardware and realize people aren't even wiping their HDDs before a sale. I usually check the hdds before wiping them, I guess I'm kinda creepy that way but sometimes you find drivers and stuff that might be useful. Today I found someone's masters thesis and …

Also, if you like fantasy setting adventure games, also give Dragonsphere a try. It has a plot twist that blew my thirteen year old mind. Interesting, I have never heard of Dragonsphere, I will check it out. An other game I loved as a kid was Curse of Enchantia by Core Design. I think I only ever …

I've only delved an hour or two into Hand of Fate so far. It's one I'm going to revisit in the future when I have time, as what I saw was really cool. More quirky and creative than the Sierra games, along with a certain painstakingly hand-drawn and hand-composed aesthetic which pretty much tops …

Legend of Kyrandia (1) first game I play for real on my first retro machine ss7. Short review so far with grown up eyes, acting is quite bad, music is pretty bad (better with mt-32 maybe?), graphics are fine, story good and gameplay very nice. Puzzles are not as stupid as monkey Island. I just got …
