    I would *love* to play Quake.

    I’m not sure we can do it for next March though, some people have been begging for Blood (or Hexen?) quite a while.

    “Too many memos”. I made the mistake to “Look at too many memos”. Guybrush kept reading them for 5 minutes.

    Nice! I’m a bit sad that floppies are not a thing anymore. They were so much more satisfying than downloading stuff from the internet and running it from hard disk :-p

    Yeah. I love clicking through old magazine scans. Mostly for hardware related stuff, but especially for our DGC games it’s also fun to find stuff about them.

    in reply to: Wipeout #1672

    I have the PS1 version of Wipeout 2097, it’s good fun. I remember playing it a few times on my (several years older) cousin’s Playstation. I sucked terribly at it.

    For some reason I remembered the game having local multiplayer, but apparently it only works with two Playstations linked? Very weird. I would like to try it on DOS 🙂

    I’ll just take your version. I need to run it in DOSBox anyway (still no support for connecting real machines to DOSBox’ virtual IPX net).

    in reply to: Getting it running #1648

    Yeah, but the problems with DOSBox are probably related to my DOSBox installation.

    It works pretty well on my 486@80MHz. It ran like shit on the same machine in non-turbo mode (40MHz), even though the box says it needs a 33MHz 486.

    In DOSBox, my videos kept stuttering, same at 40Mhz. At 80Mhz it just works perfectly in every way.

    I think the original game supports IPX networking only (Battle.net didn’t exist yet in the beginning, IIRC, and there is a dedicated Battle.net edition).

    But DOSBox supports tunneling IPX through UDP and we’ve done that for a few games already. It worked reasonably well (given what a makeshift solution that is). I think we’ll try that for sure 🙂

    Oh, that looks pretty cool. Hadn’t heard of it before. Seems to be a rather smallish game? If so, we have a few of them in the suggestions, might play them all in the same month.

    in reply to: Memories of the game #1609

    I only got a single upgrade in my playthrough. Even that was unnecessary in the end. Once you master sword fighting it’s very unlikely you ever lose a hitpoint.

    I think the only essential potion is the feather falling one without which you cannot finish that one level.

    I kinda feel like they forgot what made PoP1 great and changed everything in PoP2.

    I only played the first level, but I really cannot endure more of this.

    The constant hectic music, the higher detail but ugly graphics, the way you don’t get to think about what you are doing and guards are coming for you from left and right… It’s just a completely different game (and it took me 10 minutes to figure out how to even survive the first guard because the game doesn’t give you two seconds to figure out how to draw and use your sword).

    All in all I feel PoP2 is awful compared to PoP1.
