Not much opportunity these days for that I'm afraid :D I will try to find some time to fix the errors on the site at least. I'd still love to do a full remodeling of the site, but unless I get rich somehow, I probably won't have an opportunity to spend the hours it would take to make that a reality.

Hey all, so if you're reading this (and I'm pretty sure that you are) then you'll notice that the site is now on its new server. Actually everything will seem pretty much the same. I hope. But trust me, it's moved. :thumbsup: It actually was not too much of a problem; surprisingly easy. I guess I'd ...

Server move coming, please read

Hiya, Over six years ago, DOSGames.com moved to a new web server. At that time, some of the software being used (ex, PHP, MySQL, Apache, PHPBB2, etc) was already rather old. But we kept going as long as reasonably possible. Now, however, I've been getting daily emails that CPanel and a host of other...

If you want to email to me (webmaster@dosgames.com) I'll be glad to take a look. Better yet, upload it somewhere (ex, http://www.tinyupload.com/) rather than emailing. Thanks!

DOSGames.com Christmas logo 2014 is up

This one is a bit less inspired than last year's, but nevertheless, it's up, and the 15 year tradition continues! :) (You may have to reload to see it.)

Yup, all the pages are hard-coded html. With over 600 entries, it would take a long time to convert them to a database system. I've had inclinations of redoing the site over the years, but now that I'm in full-time work and part-time school (and likely starting to plan a wedding :love: :shifty:) it ...

Wow, nice! Good to hear they'll be making some new games!

And the anthology seems quite reasonable for the amount of games ... hmmm ... I already own a lot of them, some on the original floppy disks. Then again, I don't have a computer that has a floppy drive anymore :suspicious:

Bash vulnerability & a link to the past

So, first of all, if anyone notices anything weird on the blog / site, please let me know. I've done as much as I can do re the Bash vulnerability, and basically just need to wait for the patches to come out. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, check out this article: http://securitywatch.pcm...

Any chance you could upload this game somewhere or send it to me? I'd like to take a look at it. I'm actually going to try to add some new games to the site soon. :o

Awhile ago I toyed with the idea of selling a CD-ROM with all the games on it, but decided it would be too much work for me and not enough people would want it to make it worthwhile. The only way to get the games is to just click the links. I mean most people won't want to play like 87.5% of the gam...

I used Impulse Tracker back in the day.

Life was indeed simpler then. WB Check-Mate B)

IIRC, the chronology was
1) "Ghetto board"
2) iB Forum
3) phpBB

I don't remember what the first one was actually called. It was hosted off-site and was ugly and barely worked. :)
