Extremly hard to find demo games contest

Sometimes it seems to me that back then quite a few users could walk in and make some odd or inane posts, then never use the forums again.

These days, forums are generally frequented by a lot less people who are not spammers or self-proclaimed SEO experts.

[kinda off topic] What is this symbol? Is that a macromedia flash player old version or somethng?

The icon shown for a specific file type is defined by your operating system's settings. If you just tell the extension of the files for which it is showing this might be a clue. But please remember that back in the DOS days, there were very vague and limited standards for file types compared to the ...

Out of memory error on Warcraft 2 setup

You likely need to use the MOUNT command with the -freesize parameter to define the size of your virtual C drive, like this: mount C /home/myusername/Documents/DOS -freesize 600 By default, DOSBox sets the size to something like 100 MiB which some DOS installers think is nearly not enough for them.

Extremly hard to find demo games contest

As I expected, the OP is a verbatim copy of a post from 2006 . This seems like an increasingly common tactic for spammers to masquerade as "legit" users by stealing an old post from the same forum that is likely to have been forgotten by everyone. Expect this to be replaced by a spam wall of text in...

Sounds a bit like Nethack with a graphical interface, along the lines of Nethack 2000.

I'm sorry, I don't have a copy, and the developer has been banned from the forum for repeatedly breaking the rules FYI.

My hectic Vanilla Doom mod rant.

Hello, and welcome to the forums :) I've been kinda following your mod from around when you released the first demo, and played it in MBF via DOSBox with the Freed∞m IWAD (I own GOG.com versions of Doom and Doom II but I'm a Freed∞m fan). Haven't had the time to check out the full release (I know it...

DOS/Windows Top-down Fantasy Adventure with Fool/Jester

The only game like you describe with a court jester for a protagonist that I can think of right now is Sword Quest 1. I didn't play it much so I'm not sure how close it gets to your description otherwise.

I only remember Extreme Assault that offers control of both a tank and a helicopter. It's not very dark though.
