Re: Will there ever be a practical WindowsBox program?

in Milliways
Win3x installed in DOSBox is no solution because personally I don't have a copy of Win3x and I have no idea where to get one even if I wanted to. ...Google? Yes, of course that is not particularly legal This is not an acceptable method for me, if MS haven't bothered to release their old OS for free …

Re: Duke Nukem games

in Milliways
I guess I'll never understand this hype around true 3D back then, or any hype around new features in video game graphics for that matter. It all seems to be done to promote new hardware, and also results in "eww, this is not 3D" reactions from some people (critics included as it turns out). It seems …

Re: Will there ever be a practical WindowsBox program?

Unfortunately, Danoon is the only one that is looking into it that I know of. This is really a weird thing - I mean, Windows support doesn't have to be included in the vanilla builds, but an SVN build with this functionality would be welcome by most parties that are interested in running Windows …

Re: Will there ever be a practical WindowsBox program?

In all of this discussion, it might be worth noting another approach. Danoon was experimenting with adding parts of WINE into his Java port of DOSBox with some success. Before anyone gets too fixated on the Java part of it, think of what might be possible with normal DOSBox or the DOSBox-X branch. …

Re: Duke Nukem games

No one mentioned the cancelled Duke Nukem Forever side-scroller game . The only existing version that was used to make screenshots seems to be very incomplete, but there's a full game that uses the same engine, Alien Rampage , and judging by that the DNF side-scroller could have very well turned out …

Re: Anyone ever played Eradicator?

in Milliways
I don't think the demo had unique levels. In the game, each of the three characters (the unlockable 4th one doesn't) have a unique small mission at the beginning. Heh, I didn't even know about the secret character, cool :) I think the demo I owned only allowed you to play as the dude and the alien …

Re: Good introduction to Star Wars universe via games?

in Milliways
I, too, have never been a particular fan of the franchise, but I really, really enjoyed Star Wars: Dark Forces , which I got initially interested in only because I'm a fan of old school 2.5D FPS games. In my opinion, SWDF does a great job recreating the atmosphere from the original trilogy, or at …

Re: Anyone ever played Eradicator?

in Milliways
I've only played the demo, but it makes an impression of a very well designed, thought out game. The engine is on par with Build, but there are also a few extras like picture-in-picture images (well, a gimmick but a nice one), and stuff like remote-controlled drones you can use to operate in …

Re: Want to be interviewed about Abandonware?

in Milliways
Also MrFlibble, I didn't appreciate recieving that PM which is duplicating this topic. Sorry to have bothered you, I have sent it before the message was posted here. I understand that "abandonware" is a risky topic, and I certainly not cannot speak on behalf of Ms. Heiberg about the scope of her …

Re: Game Interface Design in certain years

in Milliways
Some time ago I suddenly noticed that quite a few VGA DOS games used bright orange colours against a relatively dark background for the menu font - Rise of the Triad , Descent , Radix: Beyond the Void , Raptor: Call of the Shadows , Tyrian (well, it's more of golden than orange), Alien Rampage (red- …
