Hi All! Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in the States (hence the lack of a post from me) which means that today is the 'big sale' day of the year for Americans (something I never knew until I moved here). I usually avoid big sales - but I did grab a coffee and head down to my local Software shop to see what was available. I was not disappointed - they had a rack full of old software for sale for 25 cents a piece (I bought 6 games :-)).
Amongst my purchases was the all time classic 'STAR WARS: Dark Forces' - the first 3D shooter game based in the Star Wars universe (and the predecessor of the now fantastic 'Jedi Knight' series of games). When I got home and dropped the CD into my computer - it helpfully tried to autorun the DOS based installer which crashed and burned immediately under XP.
Thankfully my DOS gaming virtual machine was ever present - and Dark Forces installed and ran perfectly. No, really, no tweaks, no tricks, just perfect old school 3D game play. Pretty good way to spend a day off if you ask me.
my neighbor found some old pc star wars games and i would love to play them but know next to nothing about computers can i make them work with XP the games are x-wing star wars rebellion star war tie fighter and dark forces 1 and 2 looked online they say click on tab to make compatible with windows 95 but iu can't find it can u help?
