Zomb's Lair - Reviving Old Classics

Recommended Posts

I have a package for the game Ripper that's done, but I want to do some additional testing as I've read that the game has a potential bug - it's late-game, because of course it is - so I want to get to that point and determine if it's an issue.

Nice work. Just wanted to propose 'Chasm: The Rift' (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chasm:_The_Rift) as a perfect candidate for your project.

One of those forgotten FPS games from the 90s that deserves some love.

Chasm's great. It's one I've already got on my list, and I've already got it setup in my library.

The only problem is that, by default, it doesn't run particularly well unless you're using the base 320x200 resolution, which doesn't bother me but I'm pretty sure most people wouldn't like. There is a port project (which is still in development) called PanzerChasm though that I've been meaning to try out as well as some patches that supposedly fix the issue natively. I'll try both out and see how it goes.

Doing some quick testing with some patches, that actually seems to work quite well - it's running great at 640x400. I'll probably opt for this method since I PanzerChasm is currently listed as version 0.3.

Well I just spent the last 4 hours getting past the point in Ripper that was supposedly problematic - no issues whatsoever. It's uploading to Archive now, but it'll be tomorrow before I have a link - it's gigantic (4.5GB / 6 discs).

@Zombeaver Amazing work. I tried to play Chasm a year or two ago but I couldn't make it run on Win7 and finally desisted. With your package it took simply a couple clicks to install and it's running like a charm. Can't thank you enough, what a nostalgia trip.

Heavy Metal looks pretty cool got it running on my HTPC last night never even heard of it before so thanks for hooking these up for us.

The juvenile that hides within me couldn't resist recording this video of Julie Big Booty. It's two minutes of your life you'll never get back, but I found it amusing.

Great site Zombie Beaver! I like that GIF animation of Chasm (which has caught my eye) because I've never been aware of the game before. It looks similar to Blood (which I only became aware of a few months ago). Great stuff. Will get on these when I'm back working in the MS-DOS section of my collection.

I've been doing a lot of experimenting with PCEm the last couple days. I'd messed around with a 95 environment in DOSBox Daum, and I had a sortof barebones setup but it's really a pain in the ass to work with to be honest. PCEm, while still complex, is a lot easier to deal with in a 95+ scenario. It's been a bit of learning process but I'm making progress with it! I've even got it setup with an emulated 3dfx Voodoo 2.

Biosys has now been added. This is my first package using PCEm running Windows 95.

As the opening post is getting increasingly unwieldy, I'll just be noting new games as they're added here, with links to the relevant page on zombs-lair.com.

Great! Wheel of Time is another game I never finished back in the day and I'd love to revisit. Already installed, working without problems. You make it really simple and handy.

This is pretty awesome Zombeaver. If you ever come across either Detroit (car manufacture simulator) or Missionforce Cyberstorm, you would be my hero for life.

I'm vaguely familiar with Cyberstorm. Looks like something I'd be interested in though.

I've never heard of Detroit but it looks neat. I'll add both to my to-do list.
