  1. I've just been notified of this true gem of nineties' gaming:

     

    HappyPuppy (archived copy)

    This seems to have been one of the most active gaming sites in the nineties, with reviews and links to shareware and demo downloads. Definitely worth of checking it out! :D

     

    Also, somehow I keep forgetting about this very nice FTP archive:

     

    FTP Archive at the Polish Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematic and Computer Modelling

    It's a very nice FTP archive of shareware and demo programmes and games from the nineties, with some rather rare stuff.


  2. Seven Kingdoms: Ancient Adversaries is a rather unusual strategy game by Trevor Chan, which successfully combines intense real-time action with sophisticated economy, politics and espionage characteristic of turn-based 4X strategy games. You can not only fight your enemies, but also trade with other nations, infiltrate spies, sabotage, expand your borders by founding new cities, hire mercenaries, conduct research, and even fight mythical monsters and gain support of supernatural powers.

    Originally released in 1997 (under the title Seven Kingdoms), the game's source code and all data except music had been released under the GPL license, effectively making the game freeware. The community immediately started working on an updated version, and the current build, 2.14.3, is available from Windows and Linux.

  3. You can download the fix here.

    I am not a member of that forum, so I cannot download it.

    Oww, I didn't realize we still have those old download permissions that don't let you download attachments unless you're logged in... sorry!

     

    I've attached the archive to the first post here.

     

    anyway, Dune2 simple do not run on Windows for me... It says that i have not engonth memory... do not matter on what i change on the memory propieties.

    You should try setting XMS to about 4 megs, but completely disable EMS. It doesn't seem to work with EMS on at all for some reason.


  4. Recently I've stumbled upon an impressive collection of video walkthroughs for all levels of Rise of the Triad (shareware episode and Extreme Rise of the Triad included, plus a few extras):

    http://www.youtube.com/user/PsychedelicSA#p/c/7867E6CE6B85FB3C/0/gpqPBku8YvQ

     

    All videos are supplied with interesting and witty comments, listening to which makes a great entertainment in itself, apart from the walkthroughs that are rather detailed and in most cases cover all of the secret areas within a particular level. These videos are probably the number one source of in-depth information about the game alongside with the official FAQ. Apparently, the guy who did these videos is a prominent member of Something Awful.

     

    As an undeniable confirmation of quality of this video collection, Joe Siegler himself gave it his delighted approval.

     

    Another thing definitely worth watching too is this video review of the game, which is part of the Era Game Reviews:

  5. ...no. The one at the right side right next to the sidebar.

     

    The one which has its top half cut off because it's pasted over with the beta resources :P

    Ah, the corrupted Ore Truck image. Yeah, I noticed that, but as you said Harvester I thought they really slipped in a Harvester from TD too :D They did use the TD Comm. Center in one or two of the pre-release screenshots after all :)


  6. Ancient DOS Games

    Ancient DOS Games is a webshow dedicated to bringing to light many of the games made 10, 15, 20 or more years ago for personal computers using the Disk Operating System, aka DOS. Each episode generally covers a single game, shows a variety of gameplay footage, discusses how you might go about obtaining the game nowadays and how to run the game best using the DOSBox emulator on a modern computer.

     

    Each video page also has additional information and corrections to cover any mistakes that creep into the videos or elements that get missed entirely. Information may also include links of interest or additional notes.

    Thanks to Dogbreath from dosgames.com for finding this site! :D


  7. Onimod Land is a rather unusual RTS game that looks part Age of Empires and part Starcraft, made by Alexey Sedoff, a developer from Russia. While the game mechanics resemble the two classic titles listed above, the game has quite a few unusual concepts. First off, the two opposing factions are drastically different: you have high-tech futuristic space-faring Onimods against the tribal, magic-wielding Botsvana. Secondly, the sides are not only different in their design, but in playing styles as well; specifically, playing as the Onimods, you can choose one of the three mutually exclusive ways of development, each of which gives access to unique units and strategies. Another important feature of the game is its advanced AI that ensures both smart behaviour of units under the player's control and challenging computer opponents.

     

    Onimod Land was initially a commercial project, but recently Alexey Sedoff has released it for free, as his contract with the publishers has expired and they no longer sell the game. The English version is not yet available, but here's a link to the Russian version (the language can be changed in the settings, although, of course, a version with English as the default language would be more preferable):

    http://astralax.ru/download/programm/ol18.exe

     

    Hopefully Alexey will bring up the full English version soon :)

     

    On the other hand, archive.org has preserved the old international official site of the game intact:

    Onimod Land Official Website (archive)

     

    Even the downloads are still functional, but only in the form of a part-by-part download:

    Download Onimod Land Trial Version (archive)

     

    Note that the trial version has some restrictions, most notably the absence of the save/load fature, but it gives a good idea of what the game looks like.

     

    Here are some screenshots from the game:

  8. Gamers.Org has several old FTP file archives on their site:

  9. I've found the game here: [warez link]

    It's an image disk file (700Mb) in 2 RAR files.

    I wasn't able to install it because it's in Pollish.

    The install canceled itself, maybe I've saved one RAR over the other, I'll see this later.

    Look, you do understand this game is still sold, don't you? Please remove the warez link.
