Hi everyone, […]
If any of you are wiling to join to help finding more Win 2.x/3.0 Real-Mode compatible games, please check some old compilations at the internet archive:
Personally, I believe the old CICA CD-ROMs contain early Windows 3.0 compatible games.
Also worth checking are the "Night Owl" series, though they are from 1993 and later, which rather is Windows 3.1 territory.
This was a very helpful idea - I had forgotten about CICA and in fact I had the 1992 CD-ROM set and would often hook this up to the "big computer" and laplink to my little XT and keep clicking until I found something that loaded 😀
You're welcome. ^^
I promise I will help finding some more games or sources.
Problem is, I have no real PC at the moment, so I can't run modern XT emulators for Windows.
And my real XT just got a NEC V20 upgrade.
Essentially, I can either use my old Macintosh, some Win98 era laptops and a Raspberry Pi.
So maybe it's okay if I check games for Real-Mode compatibility only at the moment? 😀
Edit : GnuChess runs on Win3x/808x, I believe.
