Re: Most memory taxing DOS games again?

in Milliways
Just to reiterate again, I did do a search and no such topic was ever posted in the VDMSound forum. **You** moved it to the Milliways forum, where it then became a duplicate topic. In either case, my original argument stands. I wanted to know from others a good list of DOS games that were …

Re: Most memory taxing DOS games again?

OK, I'm being pushed around here. Let me clarify a few things. 1) I have never heard of the Vogons forum before yesterday. I actually posted it in the VDMSound forum. I had noticed the VDMSound forum had changed, and wondered what Vlad did. I guess he offloaded his support to you guys? In either …
