    King's Quest V

    There wasn't a DOS version on floppy disk? My collection was boxed this way.. I think the "small" installation on the CD-ROMs I have is a port of the floppy version. I cant figure out what I'm doing wrong with mounting the stuff.

    King's Quest V

    Can someone give insight, please? I have the discs to both CD-ROM collections. Can someone tutor me on DosBox? Should I try putting FreeDos on the old HP for an OS? Nothing else is on it it now....

    King's Quest V

    I have the King's Quest Collection on CD-ROM. It has 3 discs. I was wondering if the "Small" installation was the same as the old floppy version which lacked the voice acting and had windows pop up showing what the characters are saying? I was having trouble installing on my Windows 10 desktop...

    EverCade handheld.

    It's a cartridge-based system that runs 8bit & 16bit games. Different licensees from Data East to Interplay to Namco to Technos port many of their games onto carts holding compilations. There's no fancy art galleries in the menu, just the name of game and a screenshot. I bought mine as a limited...

    SIly questions from a goof.

    I somehow can't tell the difference between Tandy 1000 graphics and Apple II GS. Are they both 8bit or 16bit? Or they different bits? I say this because of such games as The Black Cauldron being so colorful on them. I used to own both machines and knew the differences in how they ran programs...

    Tandy 1000 emulation

    Guaging interest on a Tandy 1000 EX replica system. Is this appropriate? I'm not making one, just wondering if anyone thinks with this new fad going on of having mini consoles if you'd buy one were it made? Like would you pick an EX? Or even a PCJR shell?

    Sony done it wrong. Backwards compatibility.

    While Xbox One allows you to buy downloads or activate your existing collection of Xbox regular or 360 games via backwards compatibility, PS4 has none. . PS3 however had PSone games disc compatibility as well as PSone classics on the PlayStation Store. True, most people got stuck up with PS2...

    "First Laptop,ever" from FB

    Fact check maybe. EDIT: I just love how inflammatory the statement "wouldn't believe" is as if they are being modernist and saying back then someone coulda done better with the tech or that it could be compared to a laptop of today back then.

    Microsoft not so evil? Presenting Microsoft Adaptive Controller

    This begins to level the game field. Don't be fooled by initial reactions to this setup. It is the only the beginning. From a FB post of mine. I posted the leaked picture of the Xbox Adaptive controller. I had nothing more to say than "holy god" because it just looked like a giant pair of...

    Laptop / Tablet suggestions. Or set top box?

    I would like it for basic computer usage such as working on OpenOffice documents or web surfing. Something below $300. SD card slot. Full sized USB is pretty much needed. I have used WIndows 10 on PCs and Android on phones as well as a $100 tablet I got at Radioshack. Maybe using PAINT.NET or...
