dosgames.com site update August 16 2003

Post by emmzee » Sat Aug 16, 2003 8:50 pm

Added the following games:<ul><li>Construction Bob (in the Bouncing Factory)</li>
<li>Cube</li>
<li>Death Rally</li>
<li>Dungeon Crawl</li>
<li>Island Hopper</li>
<li>NRMaze</li>
</ul>A nice mix of above-average classic games and virtual unknowns in a nice variety of genres, I think. :) I still have more to add, so maybe in the next few days I'll add the rest of them. (If I still have electricity *crosses fingers*)

Anyways, download these by going to the <a href="http://www.dosgames.com/g_new.php">Newest Additions</a> page. Oh and if/when you spot errors please post here to let me know about 'em ... thanks! :thumbsup:

I remember Construction Bob from waaaaaaay back, other than that, these are new to me. (Btw: The screenshot for Dungeon Crawl is EGA Poker's)

Doh! Carrying on the tradition, I must make at least one stupid mistake during each update. :angel: Thanks for the tip :)

Umm...I dunno if this is a problem or not...but none of the screenshots are working (for me) all I get is the X of doom...:(
But if it works fine for everyone else...then....darn.

The screenshots seem to be working okay for me ... please post your OS, web browser (including version) and any other apps you're running that could interfere with the web browsing (like popup/ad-blockers, download managers ...) If you're having a problem, it's likely that other people are as well, so I'd like to fix it if I can figure out where the problem lies :)

PS. Changed the header ;)

Death Rally's pic is from registered version. :no: Snap a new, so people wouldn't send thee hate mail. (There are more pics too...)

I doubt people will pay that much attention to the pic for Death Rally. I couldn't get a screenshot of it on my comp, so I used one of the ones from MobyGames, I guess its from the reg'd version.

I may add Lure during the next update ... when I downloaded Lure I already had these six games queued up for adding.

Check-Mate: Try disabling any security programs first. I was having problems downloading until I found out temporarily turning off pop-up stopper did the trick.

No need to worry, if you turn off your popup stopper at dosgames.com you won't see any popups, 'cuz there aren't any. If you see popups at dosgames.com ... you need to download AdAware immediately ;)

Yay!!! More updates :bday: !

Death Rally looks pretty cool, though I can't say I wouldn't prefer a different name...

i honestly think Spybot: Search and Destroy is better than AdAware. Spybot can be downloaded from www.download.com and is 100% free.

The best is a combination of the two. That way, even though it takes 2x as long, you can get the most spyware removed.
