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.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 127

I liked the cover, brings back a memory or two. We didn't have any arcades nearby but the local supermarkets had a few cabinets. Oh and I tried to find a Strider cabinet from the cover but couldn't :shock: :lol: I never played Fairlight but maybe I should, it looks interesting. I would have liked to...

Re: Your one favourite game. Any format. Ever.

Has to be Pirates! on the C64. I've got loads of happy memories of playing it with a friend of mine. I tried playing it on WinVICE some time ago and it still had that something - for some reason I really did not like the reboot released a few years ago.

Re: Nexus 7 tablet is fantastic at emulation!

Sorry, should have been a bit more clear. I'm talking about the Collyer brothers' games (Sports Interactive). I recall reading that there is the possibility to have a sandbox-like Windows 98 SE installed but I don't know how well they run any games.

Re: Nexus 7 tablet is fantastic at emulation!

I'd like to fire up some old Championship/Football Manager games on an Android tablet. Is there any way to get those running?

Slightly OT, but anyone interested in the history of computer RPGs might find "Dungeons and Desktops" by Matt Barton also interesting.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 121 Official feedback

His first comment to Andrew Hewson on that cover was "I'll kill you" :mrgreen: He wrote quite a lot in the few Finnish computer magazines (regarding game design, reviews etc.) and seemed to be a very keen gamer himself. It really is sad that he passed away since the Finnish scene was quite small in ...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 121 Official feedback

You definitely need to start using similar covers in the future. This one was the first one that my wife actually noticed when I was browsing through the pages first time on a lazy Saturday morning (I do tend to save the magazine for the weekend even if it arrives on Monday). Maybe it was the shiny ...
