Looking for ASCII DOS game Smiley Royal Rumble

I seem to remember getting SmileyRoyalRumble.zip and SmileyRacerTrue.zip from dosgames.com but can't find them in the listing today. From memory they were hands off simulators. Smiley Royal Rumble was simply a case of setting up how many smiles and how many rounds and then watching them all "fight" ...

If the 5.25" drives have a similar interface to 3.5" drives then it shouldn't really be that hard for someone in the know to hack the usb interface for a 3.5" drive to a 5.25" one.

Unfortunately its been a good five years since I did things like that so I would be no good.

hopefully those old 5.25" discs you have are still in working order... dont they have a 20 year shelf life or something like that before they begin to "forget" their content?

hot summer

How is everyone enjoying the summer? Or more importantly how are your computers handling it? My Mac pro shows a cool 31degC on one of my dual core chips in a room which is currently 23degC at 1.21am. Oddly it doesnt rise much even when the room hits almost 30degC during midday when the sun is beatin...

I have been a regular lurker on dosgames for a long time, at least since 2002 but likely a while before because I am sure I got C-DOGs and a number of other g...

I hope you like it, it does parody many games of that time and has a lot of crudeness in it but I still find it funny. I think I must have been 10 or 11 when I first found it so even then while not understanding much of the humour I found it interesting enough to spend hours playing. The second arti...

I started writing these months ago but only recently had enough spare time to get to work on them. I am currently finishing off a series of blog articles on dos games from my childhood.
