    Since California Games once failed to win the poll, maybe this is a cool alternative. I like these kinds of games.

    Look at all that EGA awesomeness 😀

    As a life-long Duck Tales fan, I think this clearly needs to go on the to-play list!

    Because that’s what I suggested and it’s a much better game :-p

    It’s not the first time we pick the second game in a series, we’re also doing it with WC2 and Sim City 2000 for example (and technically, Nitemare-3D and Duke Nukem 3D are not the first in their series either).

    That doesn’t meant we can’t also play MoO1 in this month. Just that the focus should be on MoO2!

    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

    Exploding sheep are my all time favourite easter egg.

    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 🙂
