Also games that once were made for the Windows 95, 98, ME or Windows XP operating system, won't always work on computers with Windows 10 or Windows 8. But it is possible to play Windows 95 games and Windows XP games on modern computers!

And we have guides to play games from these classic gaming consoles, like the classic Atari 2600, the ColecoVision, most popular Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and the Super Nintendo Entertainment Sytem (SNES), and of course the SEGA Megadrive/Genesis.

Nope, only old stuff here! wink Nice to hear from you again! Well, the Doomsday page has been updated recently, as well as our Tomb Raider guide (to play TR with 3Dfx patch). New pages, mainly with affiliation links: Blood, Normality and 7th Guest. New port: One Must Fall 2097. Another game with nGlide support: Turok. Less new: X-Com UFO Defense. And there's a MAME FAQ bigsmile

Nice, I actually played X-Com again all the way to the end (with cheats of course, as openxcom makes it much easier with saves being editable text files smile )
Lately I find my self playing indi games, completed unepic, steam world dig and almost done with braid. I saw, I have account and almost 200 games there, but lately I rarely buy anything there as they become more expensive and bundle price are not what they used to be. (probably main reason is price of new amiga conversions such as Wings or perhaps old lucas arts games that imho are not worth the money for HD version. Will check TOmb Raider guide... was thinking to either get my PS or PS2 up and replay it or to get PS3 version. (or use emulator on PC) I do have collection for PC, but I don't even remember installing it... It was some cheap deal...

Last week was having some fun with Mac emulation. Installed System 7.5.5, OS8.1 and OS9.0 (first is 68K, other 2 PPC emulation). Games work nice on Mac emulators.

Sounds nice! Which emulator was that?
SuperFrog · 25-05-2016 · 22:49 CET · [#]
BasiliskII for 68K Mac emulation and SheepShaver for PPC emulation. Apple has released its System 7.5.3 to public some time ago. ( )
