  1. Looking for some loose games.
  2. Well even if sound blaster doesn't work, shouldn't general midi work regardless?

      Funny, they had comments on earlier today.


      For those who don't want to click the link: it's another parking lot brawl, this time from Canada!

  3. The whole idea of getting a dedicated machine for DOS stuff was to not go to the emulation route.
  4. Really? Because from this video I learned that they don't have it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2v7k-wAm2E
  5. I've heard disabling the L1 and L2 caches will bring it down to 486 speed.
  6. I'm looking into a DOS laptop (don't have room for a full PC). I'm looking at the Pentium 2 and 3 machines because of how abundant they are and the sound capabilities. To my knowledge, 486 and Pentium laptops don't have sound cards at all where as Pentium 2 and 3 do. Also, I've been told most Pentium 4 laptops have Realtek sound chips which will not work under dos. So, will a Pentium 2 or 3 laptop be suffice for some early to mid 90s PC games?
  7. New AVGN episode :)

      I really enjoy Paperboy... once you get used to the weird collision detection, it's a pretty fun game. Too bad the game ending isn't more interesting.

  8. Could this thread be nominated as Atari Age's greatest thread of all time?
  9. 5.25 inch floppies was starting to be phased out in the 80s with the Amiga, Atari ST and other 16 bit computers. USB came out in 1996... thats a 20 year difference. By that time, there was little to no demand for 5.25 floppies.
  10. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDwivbWwnt8 the nes version is even worse
  11. I'm literally addicted to Bruce Springteen's songs now

  12. Oh wow, after 2 years, it seems the question still lingers
  13. This is one of the reasons I still visit thrift stores. PC games are still plentiful and I still see many of them go for nothing. Although, I don't see big box stuff go for sale that often but I always usually see a good PC game or 2 in its jewel case every time I go.
  14. Well, I'd like to target value village specifically for their price gouging and "cuz its old its rare" crap. Honestly, Value Villages merchandise is considerably higher than other thrift store and all retro stuff gets shoved behind the counter. Like seriously, they're getting this stuff for free, untested, and they have no knowledge on this stuff and they have they still price these things for ebay prices. Anyways, all the goodwills closed down in my area (All of the Toronto area), and there prices were much lower than value villages, but when it came to video games, they did the same crap as value village. These places need to understand that they don't specialize in selling these items so they shouldn't be pricing so high.
  15. Is anyone noticing that thrift stores are drying up of retro gaming stuff? I've been noticing less and less stuff at thrift stores every time I go. I haven't found any retro gaming stuff in literally months now... I go every week and it's normally a disappointment factory. When there is some good stuff, it's normally behind the counter and sold for above eBay prices normally, which is quite sad.
  16. Wow, such an amazing find! I think this is the first proto of Pepsi invaders we know about so far!
  17. Why would you want to? The Atari portfolio is already awesome!
  18. "Missisa-agwa"

  19. Looking for the common Atari games. Combat, missile command, Berzerk etc. EDIT: whoops, wrong topic.
