Re: News article about remakes for old games

in Milliways
Actually, most of the games I've wanted to see redone have been redone. The results of a lot of them are pretty good, but a few have been lousy. Populous was remade for the DS lately and is not only one of the few DS titles running 60 FPS (most go 20 or 30), but it has a huge number of options and …

Re: Other things you do with your PC?

in Milliways
Here is a "short" list of things I have done with home computers over the past couple decades I've been using them for: * Playing games * Making games (IE: Programming) * Pixel artwork * Photo editing * Story writing * Tracking sales records * Non-Linear video editing (IE: My new ADG webshow) * …

Re: Paying outside of Ebay

in Milliways
You know, eBay has a community section where you can ask other eBay members questions like this one. You might have better luck there than here in catching the attention of someone who knows PayPal and eBay policies. However, from what I know about PayPal and eBay there's nothing saying he can't …

Re: KeeperFX Screenshots (High Res)

in Milliways
Dungeon Keeper is one of only two strategy game series I'm any good at. (Incidentally, Populous, another Bullfrog series, is the other one.) Any mod that would make the original Dungeon Keeper more interesting visually and easier to get working on modern systems is certainly welcome! ^_^ Granted, …

Re: 1980s DOS Sports Titles

in Milliways
Now THAT'S a list! o_o Gives me a good idea of just how many sports titles I haven't played... not quite sure which to look into first or if to just draw from my collection the next time I want to cover a sports title on ADG. *shrugs*

1980s DOS Sports Titles

in Milliways
I just released my latest Ancient DOS Games episode for the tennis game Serve and Volley, (which can be found at http://www.pixelships.com/adg/ep0008.html ), but now that I've done this game I'm starting to wonder about all the various pre-90s sports games that came out for DOS and what I may've …

Re: Thexder EGS vs TANDY/PCjr mode

in Milliways
Playing Thexder on my Tandy 1000 SX system I didn't have the option of EGA graphics, but when I eventually tried it on a Pentium system with EGA graphics... I wasn't too impressed. >_>; I like the Tandy graphics better because they're more solid and colourful. The EGA graphics have better resolution …

Re: Which computer did you first play Doom on?

in Milliways
I haven't played Doom yet. Burn him at the stake! :lol: Aren't some of the decorations in Doom like that? Do all those dead, dismembered and brutalized corpses actually represent the people who haven't played Doom? ...probably not, but ux-3, BEWARE! ;D Actually, I first played Doom on my mother's …

Re: Most annoying enemies in a game?

in Milliways
After playing lots of Descent for the newest episode of my Ancient DOS Games webshow, I can safely say that the enemies equipped with Vulcan Cannons early on are easily some of the most annoying enemies I've ever encountered. With virtually every enemy in Descent, they will shoot at you the instant …

Re: Technically impressive FM synth music

in Milliways
CyberSphere must be heard. Funny you should mention that game, since my newest episode of Anicent DOS Games happens to be a video review of Cybersphere. ;) Cybersphere not only uses the OPL3 synthesizer chip for music, but also for its sound effects too. In fact, the entire game is nothing but OPL3 …

Re: New Webshow: Ancient DOS Games

in Milliways
.. In other news, I was finally able to get some of my really old copy-protected disks working .. How did you accomplish this, Kris? On a true DOS machine, or in some other way? I found a bunch of archived resources to assist in bypassing the copy protection in a large variety of older DOS titles. …

Re: New Webshow: Ancient DOS Games

Arkanoid II for next week's show? Perhaps, seeing as how I've had the PC version of Arkanoid II for nearly two decades. You gotta send your guess to my adg@pixelships.com eMail address for it to count though, otherwise it can be debatable who gets the correct guess first, and that would induce …

Re: New Webshow: Ancient DOS Games

Before I get to replying, the next episode is up: ADG Episode 5 - Terminal Velocity BTW: Credits will be added in all future episodes to the first person who can guess which episodes come next. Just make sure you send those guesses to the ADG eMail address on my website and at the end of each video. …

Re: New Webshow: Ancient DOS Games

in Milliways
Keep it up Kris, nice work so far! Next up, Mach3? Forgot that game existed... mostly because the last time I tried to play it many years ago, it locked-up my system. :P Episode 4 has been up since Saturday and features the game StarMines 2. Here's a quick link for anyone who hasn't watched it yet: …

Re: New Webshow: Ancient DOS Games

in Milliways
Maybe a little less repetition in the game play would make it more entertaining to watch rather than just listen to. =] Really, it depends on the game. A lot of DOS games are notoriously repetitive to watch because the gameplay lacks the sort of cinematic quality a lot of newer games have. …

Re: New Webshow: Ancient DOS Games

in Milliways
Just a few quick replies: * I will be doing more 2D shooters in the future of course. There's a massive selection of them in DOS such as Raptor, Stargunner, Major Stryker, Tubular Worlds, just to name the first few that come to mind. ;) * Tyrian 2K sounds totally different using the MIDI music mode …

New Webshow: Ancient DOS Games

in Milliways
Hello, everyone! Not sure how many of you will recognize me... probably only like, two or three of you. XD Anywhoo, my name is Kris Asick and I've sorta been hiding in a corner of the net for over a decade now. I've released a few games to the world in shareware and freeware form, with my most …

Video Capture Issue Upon Updating to 0.74

(New information at bottom of post.) I've run into a bit of an issue with recording video from the latest version of DOSBox and after a bit of investigating I've concluded that something has changed between DOSBox 0.73 and DOXBox 0.74 that has semi-broken the video recording when the cycle count is …
