the old Oregon trail game
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 19, 2008
I read that the first two editions of the classic "The Oregon Trail" game were released in 1971 and 1974. What computers were available then to play the game on? The oldest computer I know of that you could play a children's game on, with the level of graphic sophistication I saw on The Oregon Trail, was the Apple II series (what school kids everywhere played the game on), and that wasn't introduced until 1977.
old PC > game console sofware / distro?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 9, 2007
Half of the reason why I'm asking this here is because I can't think of a good Google query that will find what I want. I have an old laptop (and desktop, not sure which to use) which I would like to repurpose as a console game emulator to connect to a TV with no keyboard or mouse necessary; basically a stand-in for a real console (I've been too poor in the past several years to afford consoles) that can play Playstation One games and anything older (including some DOS games via DOSbox). Of course, it would be an added bonus to play Linux-native games or perhaps even Wine games which would work.
The biggest piece of this would obviously be some sort of frontend that would come up after the system boots to access said emulators / games with only a USB gamepad or other similar controller.
The only thing that I've been able to find so far that sort of fits this bill is the LiveCD for AdvanceMAME, but it's too focused on MAME (I'd really rather be playing Genesis / SNES games most of the
Emacs old text ADVENTURE GAME (Dunnet)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 11, 2014
I can access the game directly from Emacs, however, calling up help says to run it in the batch mode:
emacs -batch -l dunnet
However when I try this I get an error message:
~$ emacs -batch -l dunnet

BTW, it was working when I was running Debian rather than ubuntu earlier today. I don't know if this is a debian or a ubuntu concern. Netting around had shown that this had been a problem, but debian says it was fixed some time ago, and seeing as how it was working, I can't but help believe it.

How does one modify an old school NES game? [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I sometimes see modified NES games, and I'd like to try my hand. What tools are used to accomplish this? Is there some magic repository of source code sitting around somewhere that I don't know about? My question is, what is step one to modifying any arbitrary NES game? (If step one is something like 'get your head on straight', then please give me steps one through three.)
Game suggestions? For my old Acer 1.6ghz Nettop. :) Details inside.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 23, 2012
Hiya! First post here, not a newbie to Linux though!
I'm looking for some games to play on my computer with the following specs:
1.6ghz Intel Atom
Nvidia Ion LE
If that doesn't narrow the selection, I don't know what will. xD
I want a game that isn't cartoon-ey (Example: Super Tux Kart)
Preferably something Adventure relating, including RPGs.
And NO EMULATORS. I'd rather play on the actual system. I'm looking for native (or wine) free Linux games!
If the game is awesome, feel free to suggest it even if it doesn't meet my preferences above. Just please no puzzle games, I've got dozens of them. Haha.
Thank you, hope to hear back from you all soon!
Suggested free action game(s) for old PC?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 16, 2012
Dell Dimension L866r
512MB RAM (maximum)
2 HDs - 20GB and 15GB
ATI Radeon 7500 64MB graphics card
I'm giving the above system to a friend of mine who has low computing needs and can't afford to buy something new. This is an old tower of mine that I cleaned up and installed Lubuntu. I wanted to throw a couple games on for him but I'm new to what is available. I tried running Sauerbraten but I think it is too much for this hardware; FPS were in the single digits.
Are there any suggested action games that would run decent on a system with the above specs?
really old network game for slow ubuntu PC for kids?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 1, 2008
I've set up 4 PC, but 2 are slow, one so much so that it won't run BZFlag. I'm looking for a fun network game for the kids to play. Really, they're too young for Doom (and I haven't successfully been able to install it yet) so if anyone can recommend anything more suitable for the under 10s that's less processor intensive that BZFlag, that would be appreciated.
ZSNES brings up old saved game
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 31, 2009
Me and my son have been playing Zelda on ZSNES for a month or two with no problems. Then today when we go to play it is bringing up a very old saved game, practically at the start of the game. Anyone know why it would do this and if there is a way to get the recent save back?

Multisector ISO image, old game
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 10, 2010
I have an old original CD for a DOS game, Fantasy General. But the CD is so old and nice looking ;-) that I prefer using a cd image to play.
The thing is, this CD is a dual audio/data cd, and the music for the game is in the audio part. I can play the game with the sound effects, on my FreeDOS VirtualBox, but no music comes out.
I need to know how to make a full image of the disk. I first started with dd and some tools to create cd images, but all of them are only making an image of the data sector.
Then I tried cdrdao, and it created an image of 440 MB (versus the 108MB I get from the other tools), so I think that is a complete image. However, it is in toc/bin format, and VirtualBox won't mount it as a virtual drive.
AcetoneISO says it can't mount a multisector ISO, or convert my bin file to ISO.
Tried iat, but the conversion of the 440 MB file led to a 110 MB iso (makes me think it just stripped the audio part)
Any other ideas?
Thanks in advance!
