oh, you mean one post after another, I thought you meant 2 of the same posts (like WFH is famous for). Anyway, that's not such a big deal. Calm yourself, young one.

krazer0, you have absolutely no need for that. Why would anybody care about their post # anyway? To get a title? I'm pretty sure the 1000 and 5000 posters will be something like "Super Nerd" and "Get a Life"

They're not......though at game hippo, we get big orange stars after a thousand, but we sort of call them "my big orange star of demotion" to give it a negative sense....I've got two of them, 200 more and I'll have 3 Crying

In all the specs you guys have, anyone out there have a MACH 1 (yes one) Joystick? it had a tan base with two black buttons....ohh the black buttons....OH and a short joystick that you could use to track things 10x better than a mouse. That is by far my favorite DOS joystick..... Sadly the only place I can seem to find it to purchase is in Japan or Germany. Yea, like I’m going to send my money out that far…..wait…what money Crying

Never heard of that joystick, do you have a picture of it by chance?

The 2 joysticks I use the most for dos machines are Logitech Wingman for flight sims and Gravis PC gamepad for shooter types.

If your happy with it, thats all that counts. I prefer 1024x768 for FPS type games, 1280x1024 for RTS. Older games only did 800x600 or 640x480 and they were playable at the time.
