Ok, thanks, yes, have some reading to do. That's the FSX forum, I never go there. lol

It's amazing how so many from Xville cross over the border to take away topics from the citizens of our sovereign land of FS2004 ... home of the loyal and brave.

Don't worry, though ...... I'm going to build the wall and have FSXers pay for it!

Thanks gwillmot, now I've sprayed tea all over my monitor! If we had a Post Of The Month award, that one would get my vote!

People still use FS9 or FSX? :Tounge:

There's probably some people still playing PacMan and Astroids as well, lol.

No, we do not just 'use' it, we embrace it :wub: ,enjoy it, & actually fly it. (more than tweaking :help: )

There are tonnes of them! Retro consols are the current big thing. Just one of the old games I'm playing at the moment is Viper Racing on PC released in 1998. If anyone wants to try it let me know and I'll put together a download. It's legally free since 2014.

I'm playing Digger through dosbox! When it comes to games I'm 99% retro. When it comes to flightsims I'm 99% the next big thing, but sometimes I just have to fire up my Aeroworx King Air and do a few flights in FS9.

Those of us who like to spend our time actually flying instead of for ever tweaking! That statement excludes FSX obviously.

Oh, dosbox, it's Links 386 for me 1992! haha

 

While we are discussing old games, I had a really quick look at some of the old FS versions from the site linked below. Downloaded a couple but weren't working for me on Win 7. Anyone know the best route to take to get some of these going? Would like to have a play at some point.

Hopefully the mods keep this thread open. It's turned into a good and harmless miscellaneous discussion. The main topic is covered in the first 3 posts for those who search the topic in the future. Getting some of the old FS versions running would be awesome. Looks like they are all for old Windows operating systems but it should be possible to get them going on newer operating systems. I'll have a good look at some point but hoping someone has already done it and found the appropriate steps required to get them going.

No, hardly looked at them. Just did an unzip and tried to run a couple. Thought I read something on the site that they were packaged up ready to run on Win 98 and earlier or something like that. Been messing with other old games and these were on the 'to do' list.

I think I have fs98 somewhere still.

 

If I can find it and make it work, perhaps I will take some lovely screenshots!  :hi:
