List of... SOLDAT, and beer, HELLZ YEAH!

Post by travlemon »

Hey everyone,

For the past few days, I've been rounding up all of my favorite old DOS games. A few of them were really fun with multiplayer, via hotseat (2 or more players) on the same PC. I can only remember a few, but I also wanted to see if we can get a good list going, of all the DOS games you can remember that have this feature. Here are the ones that I remember:

Slicks 'N' Slide
Cyberdogs
C-Dogs (superior sequel to Cyberdogs)
Micro Machines 2
PongOut (from PLBM games, most of you probably don't remember this?)
Death Rally

I'd definitely like to find some more local multiplayer games to add to my collection!

What were your favorites?


p.s. For fun, I added a little poll at the bottom, regarding DOS emulation.[size=0]List of Hotseat Multiplayer DOS games??[/size]

BTW, your poll was null and void, I deleted it.
If you want to compare dosbox - VirtualBox get your ass over there:

Worms is an obvious one.
Liero is my all time favorite dos game, the remakes still arent as good as the DOS original.
Most bomberman clones are awesome, there was one that could get up to 4-8 players, included kangaroos as an upgrade. Forget the name though.

Holy shit! I just thought about Soldat for the first time in years earlier today. Remember back when we'd have GH vs. DGF matches? That game was tight.

You guys might be interested in a MOD I did for soldat years ago, I made maps and graphic mods, and audio mods to make it 2D Halo.

i also agree with that! haha. soldat to me was such a great implementation of FPS style gameplay in 2D. practically any standard non-gaming configured machine could run it.

definitely on my favorite games of all time list!

I have never released it online, it was modded for my friends in IT class. Very solid mod though, i don't play Soldat unless its with my mod! haha.

Should i upload it for you guys?

EDIT: Whoa, soldat is totally free now? The only reason I never uploaded it online was because it ran on top of a cracked copy of the game. If the game is free now, maybe i should update the mod to work on the newer version. Then again, i could release it in its complete form with crack, because the game is free now anyway.

What should i do?

Free isn't the same as open source.

From the 'readme':
LEGAL STUFF

No portion of this software may be disassembled, reverse
engineered, decompiled, modified or altered.
So I would say: no, you're not allowed to distribute an altered cracked version.

* .... Probably ?*

Mods and/or custom levels are an other matter.

Ah well, don't really know.

Hmm. Tricky. This is why I never uploaded it to the world in the first place.
