When I tell a pun, friends often comment that my brain must function on a different level like the Twilight Zone or something. Anyway, my brain just told me:

I wonder if Abandonware is a game about “the battle of the bands” (A band on war). :drum:

I downloaded Ultimate Spidey and confirmed it works, but it’s sitting in the waiting list until I have completed Gothic 2 and that won’t be this month.

I’m interested in old games, just have been busy with work this summer.

Wanted to but got distracted and now of course… bah. I would love to try some.

Another thing, Bootcamp is a great way to partition a Mac machine withnWindows, but a painful squeeze on an already limited harddrive.

It will still be here when you get everything done, @Danacscott :hugs:

@Donluis524 I still run them through my virus scan just to be safe but I haven’t had any problems so far. I am working on a page to add up to the top on instructions for Mame and DOS Box and emulation. I had a friend that had the best instructions on Dos Box on Instructables but it’s gone now. Wish I had taken the time to copy it…GRRR

I am a member of a few FB groups that do emulation and have it all set up for windows and android too including games. All you need to do is download and follow the instructions. I am not really active there; don’t really know a lot of people there but i do the reading etc. If you want the names of the groups, let me know IN a PM. I can’t invite you as they are private and they require answering questions to get approval. If they ask how you found out about the group, you can give my name. Make sure you read the “Featured” section once you join. It has all the basic info/codes to get into their libraries.

Oh, and I love ya too :revolving_hearts:

T​his site is amazing.

Remember, GamesNostalgia it’s not like other abandonware sites: we tested, configured, and packed all the games with the proper emulator so that you can run them immediately on your Windows or Mac computer. No need to install anything else, just play. Only GamesNostalgia does that, seriously!

Re LoTR, i think i played The Hobbit before, or the one afterwards. There were very pixilated sprites with jank sword arm animations and man did we died a lot as a party.

Cinemasins did a review ofvan old animated LoTR movie that was as jank, heh. No meanness intended by the script was oddly organised and the voice actress for Galadriel in particular stood out as miscast, imo.

Nice finds @delenn13 and did mew see something about trains? :heart:
