If you had to choose only 1 OS to play games on, what would it be? You can't emulate any other OS, or use a video game emulator. I would choose XP because most of my games are for Windows 3.1-Vista so XP can run them all.

Interesting question! That's an easy one since I'm a DOS game programmer. I prefer MS-DOS 6.22 since I have the official software for it. However, I don't have the original hardware. It is being VirtualBox. The closest to that is DOSBox 0.74 since it emulates MS-DOS 6.22 in addition to being able to use a Microsoft XBOX360 controller and SONY PS One Controller (both needing a USB adapter for the USB port on the PC). Also, DOSBox 0.74 is able to reproduce sound that I can control where as MS-DOS 6.22 needs soundblaster, which I'm not used to right now. However, I do like Microsoft Windows XP for a third alternative.

Cheers from a heavy coffee drinker.

I need to install FreeDOS so I can try some of your games Smile

Thanks for helping me out "Dallas"! I don't usually say thank you to others. However I'm happy this Christmas and you are one of the person I remember. I'm sorry I've been out of contact lately.

Merry Christmas!

Just between you and me the Games section might not always be clear whether DOS, XP, etc. Thank you again. I know you tried and worked hard. Remember the saying "God rewards those who are persistant although to the point of annoying." Laughing
