High Seas Trader PC Boxed

Click for large picture

Released by Impressions Games in 1995 on both Amiga and PC, this PC CD edition includes Digital Speech.

The game lets you trade in a variety of goods, deal with banks and merchants, acquire property, and outfit your ship with guns, equipment, and crew. Sailing is done from a first person perspective behind the ship's wheel. The seas are, of course, never safe; pesky pirates will attempt to intercept you and relieve you of your worldly possessions.

We have to bring life into this thread again...it kind of inspired me (And Keropi) to build a perfect Dosbox with a Soundblaster 16+DB60XG, Roland Lapc-I, S3 Virge GX + dual Voodoo 2 SLi

I must do my homework though and start collecting games only have Privateer on cd-rom as an original game....will post a pic later

I preferred the Ensoniq Soundscape as it did all that kind of SB Emulation and had great sounding MIDI sampling too, just wish it wasn't ISA bus only however

Ditch the S3 Vige DX and get the PCI version of the Nvidia RIVA 128 or a 4MB TSENG ET6000 based video card, much faster for all DOS modes.

Dual Voodoo 2's are good for Windows games, DOS 3D games generally supported the 4MB Voodo 1 with 640x480 resolution only. I suggest the Orchid Righteous 3D for a Voodoo1 since it has mechanical relays instead of solid state ones like all the others so you get better video quality (and the clicking noise when it switches video mode is cool to hear).

The DB60XG is nice, but I prefer the DB50 yamaha waveblaster card instead. Why take up another slot.

Like Jmmijo said the Soundscape is nice, but the SB emulation sucked so turn it off if you use it and keep a real soundblaster handy.

Is the TSENG a PCI card?

mmm...there's nothing like the original CT1740 Soundblaster 16 pr0n

This + a DB50/60XG and a Roland Lapc-I is as pr0ny as it gets

There may have been a PCI version of that Tseng Labs GPU but I remember getting the fastest one available back in the day, it was on the Vesa Local Bus standard and it ran at 40MHz instead of the slower 33MHz of the PCI bus

It was perfectly matched for the AMD chips at the time like the DX2-80 and the DX4-120/160 CPU's. The VL bus was the base clock for the FSB of the CPU

I do beleive the make was a Hercules model, yes like the original monochrome video card make.

Yes it is PCI (the company died by the time AGP was popular).

The VLB chips were ET4000's, ET6000's were after VLB.

For real old DOS games and DEMOs get a Gravis Ultrasound.

There is nothing at all wrong with old PC games, you'll need something to store your extra rolls of toilet paper on.

Hey all, theres a guy in crewe a real small pc shop. He obtained stock as a fellow old skool businessman died. 300 Old Dos Pc games some still sealed! and he had some old old IBM games i think they were in yellow cases they were sealed too. Im sure he will sell them all off as stock for around 200 quid just haggle the guy he's pretty safe he even had a few amiga motherboards on the floor under boxes! But be warned you may need to get a van or something as there is loads of stuff.

I cant exactly remember the name of the place so i will have to take a trip into town to get the exact details for a number for you guys to ring.

Fucking swore he had moonstone for pc lol. Hit me back with a reply if anyones interested =)

Happy

CyberRace PC 1993 and Roketz from 1996!


I dont know if anyone remember CyberRace in the old Amiga mags but it was supposed to be released on Amiga in September 1993 but never surfaced , it did however on the PC the same year on Disk and CD-ROM. The game consists of racing in several voxel-space created stages and races are played from a 1st person perspective and features the designs of famed artist/designer Syd Mead. If anyone is interested in trying this "lost Amiga game" I'll be happy to give you a spin at the PC version pictured and the other game

Roketz or Roket+z as it says on the cover/ingame is another interesting game to note. It appeared first on the Amiga as shareware back in 1994, later in 2002 it was given freeware status. This PC edition is from 1996 and is based on the Amiga version by The Farm with CD audio included
