No idea, but they're probably all demos... possibly came with a soundcard, since it's Creative... and I don't think they ever made videocards. lol. Not sure what it would come from, though... something that was sold in 1994 around 1994, I'd assume, though. hahaha No, all of them are the full games....

WC the Secret Missions

Ok, so a while I got WC and I love it. One of the best games ever made, though I'm not done with it yet. Anyways, so every time I go to the menu, it says "Play The Secret Missions" even though the only info I can find (Which is here) says there is no Secret Missions in it. But then again, ...

Here's a little novelty item to laugh at

I was looking through my floppy disk archive today just to see what I have, and we have a floppy image labeled "Linux Anti-Virus software". I wonder if it ever got a chance to work.... :laugh:

Havent played very many of them, but I loved and still do love SimCity classic. Even though I mainly played it on OS7.5.3 when we had our old LC II out, the copy we had was on CD and came with the 3.1 and DOS version. But if I had to choose a different one, Lemmings or Wing Commander would be it.

No. DOSBox emulates DOS, which is very hard to work with since you need to do everything for it.

Ok, a week ago I bought this and it came yesterday. I tried to .bat a program "ORIGIN" which redirected me to a .exe called "CDGAMES" (normally I wouldnt bring this up, but Ultima 6 and WC have their own installers so I'm now really sure what it is). Everything was pretty hunky d...

Indianapolis 500-The Simulation for DOS

Ok, a while ago my family made images of all the floppies we had so we could through them away (400 take up a lot of room). I noticed a game called "Indianapolis 500-The Simulation", but didnt think it was anything special. Then today I ran across it on Mobygames and it's got some good rev...

Ok, I figured out how to calibrate the Joystick (it was buried in the tutorial section of the manual as a note), but every time I get to a place with enemies DOS Box crashes. I tried the same mission with mouse and it was fine. Any guesses?
