To some extent its true. In the city you live in you know where to go and where not to go. You also look relaxed and not nervouse since your at "home". If i would go to detroit and stumble into a bad part of town after dark I would look nervouse and stick out like a sore thumb inviting trouble. Ther...

Dune 2

Dune 2 was one of my favorite games that ran from DOS. Is there anything on the cd version that the floppy version didnt have? If you have the CD please PM me.

I have a STB Velocity 128 4MB PCI coming in a few days to test. Was $5 + $2.25 shipping (cheap hobby). Thats the Riva 128 chipset and it does have windows 3.1 drivers from Nvidia site. I will probably get a Tseng 6100 also when I find one. Think the Riva has VESA 3.0 in bios. The 128 ZX is slightly ...

Ok, now we are on the same page. I just want the best I can get for the era the machine will operate in DOS/Win3.11. I have a TNT1 + Vodoo2 SLI in a p2-400 box for early windows 95 generation of games and a Xp1500 + ATI 9000 for current games. Since all the ancient win3.11 hardware is dirt cheap I m...

Games are like art, some people love one game while others hate it. I did like the original C&c's up to and including red alert 1.. got boring after that.

Since every card designed today pushes 3d not 2d I figured there must have been a card that peaked in the 2d game wars era.

I currently have a S3 Trio64V on a 486/160 16mb PCI motherboard.

I was looking for the best 2d card that doesnt need added software to be compatible with VESA game modes.

Starcraft was good when it came out, people still play it alot online. But I have to say nothing can touch the Age of Empires series for head to head replay value with 8 people.

Unreal Tournament 2003 is a fun game, but it does match the fun of the original UT. Looks and plays too much like quake 3, which I didnt care for too much.

Are you people smoking crack? J/K
Win2k is the best stable windows ever made for real work.

Win98SE is the best for directx gaming.

Dos 6.22/DrDos 7 are tied for best DOS for gaming (well since Dos 7.0 was never sold as a standalone but was used for windows 95 base)

I runn dos 6.22/win 3.11 on a AMD 486/133 OC to 160 (just for the hell of it) 16mb ram, 2gb WD HD. For the most part it plays the DOS games fine except for some older titles that play kind of fast. Anybody here use a 386 for the real old 80's games?
