Hi Emmzee,

Maybe you could put system requirements for each game. (If you have too little free time, please ignore this suggestion).

Um... because its a dos game? 286 to a low pII is all you need to run dos games.

Well, some people still own old computers (my uncle has a 486 DX/33!) so it wouldn't be stupid for Emmzee to follow my suggestion.

But, it's up to Emmzee anyway.

Unlike any other game, DOS games prefer OLDER systems over NEWER systems. Generally, if your system is between a 486 and a machine running ≥win98, you should be okay.

OK, I give up. Never mind my system requirements idea.

I would consider it, and I think it's a good idea in theory, but:

a) It would be a lot of work Sleeping

and

b) A lot of games don't specify their requirements, so I'd have to either guess or leave them blank for probably 50%+ of the games anyways

I download games on my Pentium 4, and copy them to my Pentium 1 and or 386SX.
