MW 1

Post by Dart Omega »

does anyone else remember that old gem of a game?
I started playing it again on dos box and I tell ya, I missed this old game as you couldn't change anything on it and took real skill to play and best of all you could keep playing it forever(as long as you forfeit the story line) and it is one of the few games Jordan Wiseman actually wrote the story for(which was neat).

I just wish they would remake MW 1 and both Crescent hawk games.

I got that one.
(and both the Crescent Hawks games)
Wish I could stilll play it.
I haven't been able to find an emulator that will run SLOW enough to play.

I really enjoyed the ability to target the enemy's heads. :twisted:

http://www.dosbox.com/ has the best options for emulators,you just have to slow down the frame rate as low as you can get it, I managed to get it down to being able to play it without it going to warp.

just have to tinker with it until you get the best results that work for you.

I am using windows XP which was an upgraded from Visita lol.

I found DosBox works well with XP compared to Windows V, don't know anything about W7 though.

I found this on youtube, so I am not sure if it will help or not just thought I would put it here anyways.
