I guess Wikipedia is lying 🙁 It says there it was released for both Windows and DOS, which got me excited.
https://ski.ihoc.net/ this seems to be the best resource there is for Ski Free, as this website is made by the same guy who made Ski Free. They offer two versions there: the 32-bit latest version (which requires Windows 95 and up) and the original 16-bit version (which runs in Windows 3.x).
But none of these run in plain DOS, as Wikipedia is implying ;(
Hi! I just recently found out about this forum/podcast and it’s totally up my alley! (I was hoping there would be an newbies introduction section to the forum, but I guess it’s not that kind of message board)
Anyway, I really hope to get involved here regularly. (I have 3 vintage PCs and in the process of building 2 more – more details for anyone who’s interested!)
So I’m just wondering about this month’s topic. Firstly, is the idea just to play the three skiing themed games Tijn has made topics about (winter games, downhill challenge and ski or die), or just to find as many of my own as I can and play those?
Also, is there an “official” source people get their copies from, or is it just a matter of sourcing it from wherever?
The list I made is just to get people started. Any game you can find is more than welcome! I think it’s probably best to open a thread per game, so we can discuss them in a somewhat organised way.
People get their games from all over the place. Sometimes games have been released as freeware or are for sale on gog.com or other such sites. Sometimes people still have their old copies from back in the day, or buy boxed games from eBay for their collection. Sometimes the sources are some vague abandonware website, which is totally fine but we appreciate if people keep the links to themselves haha
