  11. Dosbox is great for most old games. If you're using a Mac, it is even easier if you get Boxer.

      A perfect gift? Sure I will take4 it then, sure as hell would not pay for that!

      OK, so maybe 'perfect' wasn't the right word. Maybe if it was an 800XL case and a lower price tag...

  20. As far as I know, it was a 'plate' that held two joysticks together. So I guess any system to either keep the joysticks stationary, or joined together should work.
  21. If Lynx is happy to carry on, that's fine. I'll have to shoot on over to avc and get the days/times of the current chats. I am sooo out of touch.
  22. That's cool. I didn't see anything about a Wed chat when I did a quick search. But if there is already one in place...excellent, I will try to attend next week. Is that 3pm PST?
  23. Hi all. Now that I am back in the A8 scene, I was wondering if people would be interested in a regular Wednesday night chat. However, this time I was thinking of having a particular topic (at least to start off the convo). If you are interested, reply to this message. Mark
