Fleet Defender Video Cards

Does anyone have any suggestions for 2D video cards to run MicroProse's Fleet Defender? Historically, I've had trouble running it on systems with Cirrus Logic cards. More recently, my S3 Trio 64 equipped system refuses to run it, which seems odd since I though the Trio 64 ran everything. In any …

Re: Riva 128 vs TNT vs M64 Pentium MMX

Sorry for the rather ranty post, but your last statement made so much sense to me that I could not resist sharing my unsolicited opinion . Feel free to disagree with anything I have said or to correct me if I have somehow misinterpreted you . I don't disagree at all. You captured what I was saying …

Re: Riva 128 vs TNT vs M64 Pentium MMX

When I try to start the main game in DOS, I get a searching for disk error accompanied with an activation of the floppy drive. When I try to start Secret Missions 2, the computer restarts. I …

New/Next Projects

I'm trying to figure out what direction I should take for my next build/project. Currently, I have four retro computers on my desk: A late-95/early-96 vintage Zenith-branded Pentium 100 Mhz with an OptiViper chipset and a Diamond-branded S3 Trio64V+ and Aztech sound card for DOS 6.22/Win 3.11 A …


in Milliways
There were several downloadable add on cars for Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit in the late-90s: Ferrari 456, Jaguar XKR, Lister Storm, etc. They used to be readily available on several sites, but I can't seem to find them anymore. Does any have a good lead for where I might be able to find them.
