Maybe Guimo? It has two eyes in the status bar, and the jungle setting.

the game i'm searching is in the "space" but not space themed (not as Blake Stone or Star Wars). I'm not sure I understood that correctly, but you could take a look at other Doom -like 2.5D games set in space (or where stars are visible): Alpha Storm Descent (no outdoor space levels though) In Extr...

Well, Duke Nukem 3D Episode 2 is set in space and the stars are visible from the looking ports of the space stations Duke visits. Another possibility is Star Wars: Dark Forces.

It's most likely Witchaven. If not, then maybe Amulets & Armor.

Recently I found out that GameFront hosts an archive of original MicroProse file database, including official demo versions, patches and other stuff. Here are a few original demos of the games I mentioned in one of the above posts: F-15 Strike Eagle II Desert Storm Scenario Disk Preview F-15 Strike ...

BTW, some no-CD-cracked games still look for the CD-ROM drive, and might not work until a virtual CD drive is mounted in DOSBox.

Taking into account the fact that the game's installed into a WARCRA~1 (supposedly "Warcraft 2") folder, it's better to reinstall it from within DOSBox altogether (btw, the default folder offered by the installer is "war2").

Do you have the demo or the full version?

Correction: I downloaded the full version of the game from www.dosgamesarchive.com. Eh? There's only a playable demo there. Downloading the full version is kind of illegal, as I don't remember that Warcraft: Orcs & Humans went officially freeware. If you downloaded the right archive here , you shou...

Re: Dune II with Gravis Ultrasound in DOSBox [Howto]

.... Unfortunately, that patch does not work well with DOSBox ... Patch works in dosbox if it finds the right drivers. Well, I used that old patch with the drivers from Huggybaby2's pack, and it a) sets the game to play music through MT-32, which is not the best quality compared to Sound Canvas, b)...

Dune II with Gravis Ultrasound in DOSBox [Howto]

Recently I've found a very old unofficial patch for Dune II that adds GUS support. Unfortunately, that patch does not work well with DOSBox, but the principle behind it allowed me to make a suitable little patch of my own. The simple trick behind the patch is that the setup programme tells Dune II w...

BTW, I noticed that for the MiG-29 Fulcrum demo I linked to above to work, all the data files must be manually placed into a sub-directory called "D", or the demo will not work at all.

Okay, as you wish. But since I know for sure the site I linked to is not a "website hosting Abandonware or Warez downloads", I don't consider myself having violated any of the forum rules - unless, that is, the paragraph you quoted above (and, mind you, I never post links to abandonware stuff) essen...

I've stumbled upon yet another beta demo of Powerslave , presumably released somewhere between the first public beta and the demo builds that are identical to the final release of the game. This demo (it's called "freeware" in the readme) still has the beta title screen, and a rolling introductory t...
