I know Soldier of Fortune 1 ...it was one of the most realistic and gory games at this time. 49 hit-zones with different effects depending on the kind of weapon.
The Knife was the most fun one ... sneak attack or throw it into your enemies face. :mrgreen:
I tried to imitate the Missile Launcher fire modes from SOF1 in Food Fight. But Kelly got me wrong ... we kept the outcome because it was something new.

I just finished Alice, I own the disk but never finished the game, but the download worked fine.
Also I don't see it possible to make levels in Unreal that could ever work like they made Alice. They did some really good stuff in those maps and all I could think of Unreal would be flickering movers all over the place.

And now I got Heretic 2 up and running, you have to get the enhanced update, then after I installed the regular game, in the enhanced files all I did was install a file for 3DFX wrapper, and maybe the quake2.DLL. But it is now working fine.

Check this one out, it installed in win7 pro 64 bit.

I only played just a tiny bit, but it all works pretty good.

EDIT
I don't give a crap what all the negative talk on this game, it's not some crappy game or near as bad as what they say, geez.
I rate it a 6 out of 10, and all those critics I give it a friggen 10. I mean it's not that easy playing on normal, it is just a game to run and gun, and it's worth playing, I like these simple games, better than friggen dooms, talk about boring.

________________________________

I am downloading this one right now

It's pretty good, graphics are good, has missions, seems worth playing, and it installed win7 64.

So they say this game is so violent, but really when playing it, it still seems like a video game to me. I am not into video games just for violence, same for only good graphics. But since I can check it out for free I just gotta check them out.

There is a file "hoodlum.exe" in the Punisher game, says it's a Trojan. I ran the damn thing aaaaaaaaaarg. but all you need is to drag the "Pun.exe" over and use that for the shortcut.

HEADS UP !!

:!:
It looks like GoG is getting games now and pay for them on that site, so you may want to investigate downloading some before the whole thing gets messed up.

I have it installed and working but have not played it yet.
It's looking pretty good.
You also need a CD mounting program so the CD image can be mounted. I use,,,, WinCDEmu, You just mount the drive and install.

The Chronicles of Riddick, Escape from Butcher Bay Windows - 2004

After you install it
go here to see how to make it work.

https://www.neoseeker.com/forums/21221/ ... -problems/

I did not use the "hoodlum" files and it is working on win7 pro 64bit.
I did not get the patch, it says it can't copy because the file is "the same" but I think it is already patched because they added gamepads, and it has gamepad options already.

I think that nvidia tuner could make other older games work as well.

This is already Abandonware?

I don't think Riddick is Abandonware, I might be wrong though.
I do know Dark Athena (the remastered version of Riddick+bonus mission) was available at GOG.com up to 2017, then it was delisted because of license issues and whatnot (a real shame, the GOG version of this game was the best).
