Hiya :)
 
Hi there!

My name is Casey, I'm a 24 year old IT student in Britain. My brother used to own a very old computer and I used to use it when he wasn't looking to play lemmings hehehe

He also had this game where you play as a corsair in deserts and cast magic spells, that was a lot of fun! Although it was tough for me at the time...it would be nice to take that on again!

I'm learning how to use dosbox, its starting to come back to me now...

Nice to meet you all!

It's heartwarming to see younger people going back to old games, so it's not that only we, old geezers *cough*, are stuck in 1980-90s.

We have a nice thread with DOSBOX tutorial, in case you need it.

Welcome to the forum.

Thank you all for such a warm welcome!

I'm sick of "new" games, requiring you to buy new parts and get a man in to fit them every 6 months, I remember you could buy any game from back then and you knew it would just work. If it could run kings quest 1 it could probably run kings quest 6 as well, try doing that with halo!

Thanks for the tutorial, I did manage to get all set up last night with the help of the people on the IRC, I had no idea they made a sequel to lemmings, let alone 3 or 4, I've never seen 3 hours disappear that quickly before in my life!

Is that a picture of Elvira? Gosh more nostalgia! Scrummy isn't she :blush: Oh and while I'm at it, thats the critter from the dark stone muppets thingy isn't it? I always thought myst drew a lot of inspiration from that movie :)

Lovely to have you with us! I think we've even got an Elvira game hanging around if you're a fan :)

Oooh I'd better not, I start questioning my sexuality if I think about her for too long hehehe

And wow, now I feel dim! There's that many squeals? I hope they never made the transition to 3d, I can see that being quite damaging!

They actually did, back then in 1995 yet, it's one of the games on the list in the link above.
