I was tinkering with one my my old computers (dos laptop, early 80s, 4'x3', 10 pounds), and I came acrossed some old games. REALLY OLD GAMES. And there it was Dig-Doug, Frogger, Test Drive 1... (all full-version)

But the only problem is- I can only get them onto 7" floppies. Sad

7"? Weren't they only 5 1/4"?

---I have a 5 1/4" drive... do you think it'd be possible to hook one up to a modern or even 1995 p1 155mhz computer?

There were indeed disks larger than 5 1/4". I don't know the measurement, but they were big.

Wasn't Dig Dug an Atari or arcade game as well? I'm certain it's not DOS specific.

Dig Dug was on Dos as most of the classics were. Personally, I prefer Digger
