  1. Besides what's already been said, I'dd add the monitor issue. You main PC almost certainly has a widescreen LCD/LED. That's taboo. You're gonna want a nice 4:3 CRT VGA monitor. They take up a lot of space but it's the only real way to authentically see those old programs the way they were meant to be run.
  2. I got my K6-2 last week from eBay for just $86 shipped. I already had a keyboard and mouse, so it didn't matter that it was bare. It can be slowed down too. Check it out, I'm sure there are many more like it on eBay.
  3. King’s Quest IV: The Perils Of Rosella. Words can’t describe how much I loved and played that game. It was also my first KQ game, so maybe some nostalgia is kicking in. Conquests Of Camelot is a close second.
  4. Sorry that I haven't posted in a while, I've been having too much fun with the K6-2 lol. It's a Windows 98 Plus! machine that's 475MHz (95MHz FSB and 5x multiplier) with 320MB of RAM. It has two hard drives (16 and 32-bit), a CD-ROM, my Sound Blaster 64 AWE, an Ethernet card, three USB ports, a SNES USB joystick, and USB mass storage. I have an AT keyboard and VGA switch box (see pics), meaning that I only need one keyboard and monitor to simultaneously hook up both the K6-2 and the 386. Also have a Y adapter for the speakers. I have a Lightscribe DVD-ROM coming from eBay. I'd like to get a 128gb CF card, maybe next week. So far, I haven't really played any really old games, but it runs Duke Nukem 3D, One Must Fall: 2097, Doom, and even Wolfenstein 3D just fine. No need to slow down any of them. Heck, it even runs early 2000's games like Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds perfectly. Will try the Tyrian games later today and let you know how they run. It has a turbo button, but not sure if it's functional. Will try. Anyway, a couple of pics:
  5. Wow, I am shocked that there's actually variations of this ancient game! Hard to believe it made it around the world too. Some more good news: I actually just found the English version. It's not the version that you played, but I believe it's a bit different than the one in the video. I found it on a compilation of 80's DOS games. It is indeed listed an anonymous too. To get it to finally start, after you select everything press the "S" key. I've attached the file for all to enjoy. But I hope you have an XT, because even on my 386 after selecting slow mode, it runs blazingly fast. Anyway, if you ever find your version, please attach it here. Thanks!

  6. Hopefully it's not too fast, but I have a beautiful K6-2 on the way. It's listed as 475MHz (95MHz FSB and 5x multiplier), Super Socket 7 motherboard, 320MB of RAM, AGP ATI 3D RAGE Pro card with 4MB of RAM, and Windows 98 SE. I wanted something less powerful to go along with my 386, but I couldn't pass this deal up.
  7. And now I have found the download file...sorta. It's not in English, but it runs. Still looking for the English version, but I'm getting close. https://www.myabandonware.com/game/pcman-37j#download
  8. I have found a video of the game that you are talking about, but not yet a download link to the game itself. I will keep on searching and post any updates!
  9. Is there any way you can post it, or if possible link to it if it’s been uploaded yet?
  10. There are so many, but one that I was just thinking about was One Must Fall 2097. I played the hell out of this game, and it had amazing music! Wow, I just realized at 0:44 that the robot dabs when victorious! We might have found the inventor!
  11. You are totally right, I misread the title. lemme edit it with something else.
  12. Arcade Volleyball was lots of fun.
  13. Crazy coincidence, I just found a link to your game just now while browsing archive.org: https://archive.org/details/Cliffall_game
  14. Update: For the most part, everything is working properly. Shout outs to all who of those have helped me in this thread, especially wierd_w. He not only generously sent me a free package of goodies, but also spent hours of his time in PM's and on the phone helping me. Much appreciated! So right now I have the 386 running DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.1. Added hardware is a Sound Blaster 16 and a CD-ROM. Accessories are my old Gravis GamePad, which I just took apart and cleaned. The HD is a 2gb CompactFlash to IDE adapter. Since DOS can't format such large sizes normally, it was formatted in EZ-Drive. Stuff to get done: 1) A serial mouse. My PS/2 to Serial adapter did not work with my PS/2 mouse, so one is in the mail. Not having a mouse is severely holding me back in Windows. 2) Remove that battery and replace it with a modern solution. I dread this, but I know that I have to do it. Miraculously, it's still holding a charge. 3) Get the Sound Blaster 64AWE that's coming in the mail. 4) Possibly get it connected online with WiFi232 or something similar. Stuff I can't figure out: When formatted with EZ-Drive, it can not detect both the A and C drives together. When I boot to the HD and I insert a disk in A, it lights up for several seconds, but doesn't make any noise and I get that abort, retry, fail message. The A drive works fine however. On a boot disk, it boots right up in A. However, then I can not see the C drive. What's odd is that the B drive always works when either the A or C drives boot up. It's the same story when formatted in Disk Manager. But when I format it in MSDOS, all drives work together just fine. But I can't do that, because it only formats in 120mb or so. Very weird. Any suggestions? Anyway, here's a pic from last night!
