Re: MS DOS-based football management games

Hehe, been there, done that although in WinVICE on the PC. I used to love that game as a kid.

Re: MS DOS-based football management games

I recall playing some version of USM at some point, probably need to try to find it somewhere to compare. I think there were some nice features in it but can't remember exactly what.

MS DOS-based football management games

I'd like to know if there are any recommended games beside the Championship Manager series to run in Dosbox on my tablet. I've been playing CM97/98 but it would be nice to try other lesser known games too.

So, any recommendations?

Re: RG summer holidays 2014

Am hoping to go to perhaps Norway next year , anywhere I can take my missus to possibly see the northern lights for her birthday. I'd recommend the northernmost part of Finland (true Lapland) for aurora borealis. Should be much cheaper than Norway at least..us Finns have a hard time visiting Norway...

Re: RG summer holidays 2014

Thanks for the tips, TwoHeadedBoy and joefish. I think I'll need to start planning a 1-2 week trip for next year :) Originally I was thinking about Cornwall for the cliffs (I guess they are similar to what you have in Dover, that I've already seen?)

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 129

just finished reading the extremely well-written maze article, but (unless I missed it completely) there's no mention of Castle Wolfenstein? Or Beyond CW for that matter? One of the greatest, greatest, greatest maze-type games ever which actually went on to inspire the Wolfenstein 3D that is mentio...

Re: RG summer holidays 2014

Not summer holiday related, but do you have any tips where to go in the UK except London? I've been there once, over 10 years ago, and at some point want to revisit UK. I'd just like to see some other interesting places too (interesting to the wife as well, I'm afraid :mrgreen: ) What comes to summe...

Re: Best 80's action film

Must be Commando, the no 1 movie to watch when hangover. I always laugh my a** off in the scene where the jeep cannot be used because there is a huge bunch of wires under the bonnet :lol: Or when Arnie falls from the sky to the lake on his butt but it looks like he only fell for like one meter or so..

Re: From the forum issue 129 - Worst sticking points

Skool Daze - the 10-year-old me didn't understand what to do so I just ended up causing mayhem. Which was nice.

Re: The Missing Retro Gamer features

Football Manager Handheld is supposed to be a simple version of SI's Football Manager but for some reason I cannot get myself to play it on my tablet. I wonder if Kevin Toms will ever finish his reincarnation of the original Football Manager. It's been quite long in the making. And yes, RG, if you e...

Re: How getting older affects what games you like

I have noticed that I have a problem with too complex controls. Complex in a way that I need to remember a dozen different key/button combinations which is just unbearable because I really don't have the time to concentrate properly. Back in the day, various shortcut buttons etc. were never a problem.

Re: The Missing Retro Gamer features

Here's another reader supporting a (long) CM/FM article :) In fact, why not cover the whole history of football management games. There were some interesting games back in the day (The Manager etc..) I think I was one of the last ones to create a public database update for CM97/98, a great game it w...

Re: Nexus 7 tablet is fantastic at emulation!

Dungeon Master isn't that hard once you get the hang of it (read: reincarnate the champions and get them to stay alive past the first purple worm level).

Chaos Strikes Back is something that can bring a tear of frustration to anybody's eye :twisted:

Re: Nexus 7 tablet is fantastic at emulation!

Saving in DM works fine for me. The game asks for a save disk in C: but still saves normally and the game is resumable.

Re: Nexus 7 tablet is fantastic at emulation!

This week I finally fired up DosBox Turbo and ScummVM. Dungeon Master and Day of the Tentacle are still great and using the touchscreen works very well.
