Best DOS / Linux games

Hello all, Been a while since I posted here. Damned life got in the way of my fun old-timey games. Anyway, I'm going backpacking for 5 months with an Asus EEE PC - basically a tiny cheap laptop that is designed mainly for using the internet. However, it is also simple to install DOSbox, so I figure ...

Unlocking DVD regions on a PC

I've heard that it is relatively easy to unlock a DVD player to run DVDs from any region. However, can the same stuff be done on a DVD Drive in a computer? AFAIK, Windows and PowerDVD will only let you change regions 5 times (though I've got no idea why that is, or what happens if you change it more...

Haven't heard of this game, but I have got some general advice. Windows 98 and 95 are pretty much the same, I wouldn't worry about that stuff. If you are struggling to get it working, you should be able to restart in MS-DOS mode. As for installation instructions: open the cd in 'Windows Explorer' or...

Oops, wrong site

http://www.getdota.com/

The other one was one of those stupid ad sites: really, why do people buy a domain name they don't need just to be a pain for everyone else?

I'm pretty confident it's called "Castle of the Winds"
Don't know where you can download it, but google / underdogs should have it.

Don't have favourites: I just go random all the time. I tend to be good with troll warlord, clinks: a lot of the agil heroes. However, I think there is a lot of luck in DOTA: your opponents' heroes are nearly as important as your own.

I love DOTA :D

Why do you want PMs to link people to it? It's at www.get-dota.com

Anyway, it is a great game. I play it once-twice a day on Battle.net: strongly recommended.

For some reason the first one reminds me of "Mario's Time Machine", though that was a SNES game, so probably not played at school.

Best of luck though.

Don't be offended if this thread is closed, there have been complaints about '3 sisters' posts before. I don't think DOSbox is necessary, but fiddling with compatibility settings is. I think the main change necessary is clicking 'run in 256 colour mode' and 'run in 640X480 resolution' or something t...

Developing Wii games

I recently heard Wii will allow people to upload games so they can be downloaded and played on Nintendo Wii. This intrigues me :D Does anyone know how this would be done: what graphics library it would use, how to get the input right etc. I'll probably write my next game for Windows then port it to ...

I don't think you can download it at all: the company making it is still very active. Even if it isn't on sale now, I'm sure it will be resold in the future (as a compilation or something).

Is that stampede level even possible?

Yes: it's probably extremely humane and non-violent and everything.

Somehow cutnutz makes it sound nearly poetic :P

As far as I know, it makes them more tame regardless.

'Cutnutz' I think is the best option. At least if they're desexed they won't continue being a problem later. They will also be more docile after the castration (or whatever the hell they do: I'm not a vet).

A silly superhero game, but it did have that background music.

Before going out and buying a new video card, try the game in DOSBox. That program is amazing: it should easily be able to handle driver / graphics compatibility errors.

You can get it from www.dosgames.com at the utilities page.
