back in those days...

Postby rjmno1 » Sat May 02, 2015 6:59 pm

Back in those days i went to friends ill did have a 486 dx2 on 66 mhz with super vga screen.
I did copie some games like quake and doom 1 heretic and some other games.
Those games was trendy in that time,it was the woaw factor, and still these games are still good in the present day.
Ill did copie them for mine own, and not to sell them on sckool.
I was running msdos 6.22 with windows 3.1 on it,mine harddrive was top notch for that time whit a awsum space of 40 mb.
Mine computer was having 4 mb intern memmory,and running quemm version 7 onit to load dos in the upper memmory area.

Its nostalged and old , but i,m thinking of these days quite often, and go back in time with mine memmory,s.
It was in that time very expensive, mine whole configuration computer with svga screen did cost 3500,00 guilden.
Its about 1700 euro.Olmost all games where running under dos and sometimes on windows 3.1.

if you compare the hardware specs in that days with those new ones in 2015, alot has been chanced sinds 2 decades.
And also with the games that where 2d games and still good playable in that time.
Are u also a old gamer like me?
Wich games did you play 20 years ago? :lol2:

Also got a lot of those CD that came with game magazines that had a bunch of random freeware 1st person shooters on them, most of which I don't remember the name of... though there was a cool one where you're an archeologist and you basically have WW2 style weapons as you look for treasure and fight mummies.

Duke nukem 1 and 2
Darkages

Monster bash
Cosmo's cosmic adventure
dangerous dave
Crystal caves
Secret agent
Jetpack
Jill of the jungle
Jazz jackrabbit 2

On a side note, fun to relieve the good old days by the number of mappers over the years that've re-made Doom & Quake maps for ut99... not that I ever played Quake, but still.

I had...have an Amiga 1200 with a 41MHz 68040 and an extra 32 MB RAM.
Mostly I played;
***STRATEGY**
Frontier - Elite II (the first almost infinite game, and most hours played)
Syndicate
Populous (the first God-game)
Lemmings

***ARCADE CLASSICS***
Obviously we had Tetris, but I played Twintris (2-player)
Deluxe Galaga (Now available again for PC http://emv-software.weebly.com/deluxe-galaga-reborn but turned into "Warblade")
Deluxe PacMan (eventually turned into Deluxe PocMon and then Dots adventures http://emv-software.weebly.com/products.html)
R-Type
Golden Axe
Double Dragon
Second Samurai
Aphidia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXelCTSdhS0
Project-X
Cool Spot

***CONSOLE EQUIVALENTS***
Superfrog and Zool were what we had instead of Sonic and Mario
Gloom and Alien Breed 3D for Doom style games

***PC PORTS***
Doom 1 and 2 (ported and enhanced so you could jump and look up and down)
Hexen
Quake
Note: ID software never did Amiga versions because they claimed it was not capable. 8 hours after the source was released we had the first working Doom. Most of the following days were spent optimising and improving it.
Amiga users ended up with a Doom that did more on less hardware and also took much less drive space. Lots of the original DLLs replicate that already available in the OS.
The same things happened with all the following PC ports. They were all optimised and made faster and with a smaller footprint.

For comparison;
An Amiga with a 60MHz 68060 is roughly as "fast" as a 90MHz Pentium 1 (do the same amount of work irrespective of running speed)
My 040 would have been more like a 66MHz 486
