Re: Free alternatives to classic games

Added Mechanized Assault & eXploration Reloaded to the list as it allows to use a free set of graphics and not just the resources from the original M.A.X..

Re: Shadow Warrior

When I played Duke Nukem 3D again afterwards it felt like a step back.[/list] I don't know, I never had any impression that Shadow Warrior excelled Duke3D in any respect. SW does place a greater emphasis on the use of explosives, and enemies are tougher but somehow Duke3D feels more balanced to me.

Re: Thor's Hammer

Note that Thor's Hammer has some noticeable speed issues when run in regular DOSBox. I have just tried the shareware version 1.1 with the regular DOSBox v0.74 build, and it works fine with the following settings: memsize=8 core=auto cputype=auto cycles=auto 16000 Setting CPU core to dynamic seems t...

  • Revised MDK Demo: MDKDEMO.ZIP
I have reasons to believe that this demo is identical to this one: mdkpcw95.exe (also found here), which appears to be the latest version (v3.0) released by Shiny Entertainment.

Re: Some missing game versions

I just found a newer version of the MDK Internet demo, identifying itself as v3.0: mdkpcw95.exe

This file includes both the DOS and the Windows version of the demo. The demo is dated 13 March 1997.

Re: Classic & retro gaming websites

Found an interesting site full of DOS games (mostly freeware):
DOS haven

The site focuses on titles released after 2001.

Re: Restoration of a few games' EXEs versions

NY00123 , thanks for a detailed reply! With my renewed interest in source ports and engine recreations, I discovered a project called KeeperFX which uses an interesting approach: The problem with remaking games is that usually the remakes are abandoned at some stage and never finished. This means t...

Underworld Adventures - Ultima Underworld engine recreation

I just learned about Underworld Adventures , an open source engine recreation project for Ultima Underworld which seems to be quite obscure for some reason. It was indefinitely suspended in 2007 but a quick check suggests that the latest build is quite functional. It supports both the full version a...

Re: Source ports vs. emulation

I would like to amend my earlier views stated in this thread, after playing recently some very conservative source ports like DXX-Rebirth , ECWolf or BStone that very successfully address all the issues that bother me in this regard (like aspect correction). I'm convinced that there is no reason to ...

BStone - Blake Stone port

In summer 2013, Apogee Entertainment LLC released the source code of Blake Stone: Planet Strike . This became the basis for the BStone source port, which since v1.10 (9June 2015) adds full support for both shareware and registered releases of Aliens of Gold as well. The port is generally quite conse...

Re: Files that need replacement

Mortal Kombat II File to replace: mk2demo.zip Replace with: mk2demo.zip Reason for replacement: This is apparently the original zip archive, while the version on site is a repack from 2010.

Re: Titus the Fox

The demo of course. I'm currently unable to access archive.org so I can't check the demo version myself. Could you tell what kind of documentation it has (if any)? Software license, vendor info etc. If it was distributed on disks with electronic distribution modes unclear, does it require the CD to ...
