Roll eyes (sarcastic) I started getting old PC games ... weird eh?

It must be my retro-mode turned on... lol
I got these of eBay and I expect more to arrive soon...




All are really great condition, some like new(!) like Hexx, Alone In The Dark 1... I must comment Hexx, excellent packaging, an awesome poster inside (part of it is the box art) and cool disks too! a psygnosis game
I wish I could get proper disk versions of ultimaVIII, gobliins2 ...

Absolutely nothing wrong with getting old PC games. Your'e not alone. Retro games are some of the best! Yesterday I picked up EF2000 on CDROM. This cool flight sim was coded by the same team (DID) that brought you F29 Retaliator, Robocop 3D and the sublime TFX. The game was boxed complete with an additional missions CDROM and all the extras (manual, maps, etc).

I collect old PC games also (mostly DOS era with floppies boxed), I have more Amiga boxed games then PC (because when I tossed most of the PC boxes years ago and regret it).

Well that was before I took over part of the basement for my retro collection, I had no space for all the boxes. I put the boxes in a large plastic bag and one day while cleaning decided I did not need them anymore, I kick myself now.

I am missing the Roland cards. Mostly I have Gravis Ultrasounds, Soundblasters, Ensonic Soundscapes, and the DBX50 Yamaha waveblaster addon board.

Amiga games are great, but DOS gaming around the time that 640x480 256 Colors was standard was great as well

both are fine
amiga games are more platform/arcade , while pc games had many rpg/adventure ones... is is a shame amiga could not have (because of hardware limitations) games like Alone In The Dark, the Ultima Underworlds... chunky gfx...

I really need to get round to building a DOS machine. Are there any guides around for reccomended components, sound cards/processors/graphic carrds..etc?

Loving that boxed Eye of the Beholder Trilogy...never seen it before.

I'm sure you can Google it, however, from experience you don't need a whole lot for DOS gaming, something like a P200/233 or even a slot 1 Celeron 300/333 would be great with 64MB of ram.

The big thing is to get an ISA bus machine for the older 16-bit sound cards is all, however, getting a nice old Voodoo 1/2 PCI card would be excellent as well
