Does anyone have a list of the absolute worst "Conventional Memory" pigs out there? These are the ones that need about 600K of conventional memory, yet still need CD-ROM and mouse (and possibly VESA and/or Soundcard drivers) as well.
So far the worst offender I've found has been SSI's "Dark Sun: Wake of the Ravager" which needs 605k plus mouse & CD to work (back when I got it I also had to load Soundlblaster emulation as well).
I was tring to do some testing to see if I can truly and finally relax about "Conventional Memory" requirements.
Colin's already come up with the DreamWeb-CD (needing > 590Kb conventional memory needed with a CD driver, sound driver, and EMS ).
