Well first off what is the size of your monitor? Most of the old dos games were played on 14-15" monitors where 640x480 still looked nice. Try playing quake at standard 320x200 resolution on a 19" or better monitor and you can count the dots. You cant play at 1600x1200 and then jump back to 320x200 ...

Soundblaster started to suck after they baught out Aureal, Soundscape, and who knows what else... go buy an ISA soundblaster 16 PNP and add a yamaha db50 wavetable addon card and you will have the best DOS gaming sound.

Most companies either sell of assets or the creditors they owe money to get them by default. I am sure somebody owns the rights to any game from that company, good luck fining them and good luck for them finding you with thier game.

The maps were nicers, the weapons were better, and the colors didnt look as cheasy as Q3a (which I also own but never really played that much). You should add Tribes 1 to your poll since that games was extremely po...
