  1. #1

    Default Retro Dos PCs

    1st PC:

    Looking to buy a classic dos gaming pac, all parts dating from from 1992, running on a 486.(nothing yellowed or discolored) :

    Monitor

    Mouse
    3.5, 5.25 and Cd drive
    Keyboard
    Speakers
    Cover
    Mousepad (optional)
    Early Gravis Gamepad (optional)
    Enough space, durability and life left is important



    Suggested Info:

    April 92 was DOS5.0 / Windows 3.1 (not WFW), i486dx2/50 or Am386-40, ISA/VLB SVGA (likely up to 2M in the case of VLB)/ATi Mach8, SBPro or SB2.0, 72pin RAM was available at this stage.



    To play games from 1987-early 1993 (classic pc era). Adventure games, arcade ports, platformers, notable sims, apogee games before the boom of first person shooters, full motion video (FMV), tricky advanced sound/video cards, and early and pseudo 3-d graphics.


    Examples of games: Commander Keen series, The Simpsons Arcade Game, Sid Meier's Civilization, Airbourne Ranger, Rastan, Bubble Bobble, Duke Nukem I & II, Catacombs Abyss, Wolfenstein 3-d, Mario's Time Machine, Dune, Wing Commander, Space Quest series, etc.

    Nobody can guarantee durability on items that are 25+ years old.

    You probably can with IBM PS/2s of that era, but sound cards for the MCA bus are at a premium. Maybe a Model 35 or 40 with the ISA bus?
