Reviving old games

In this section, you will find explanations, tweaks and hacks needed to make it possible to play outdated games that are no longer supported by modern operating systems (mainly Windows). You will learn about DOS emulation, virtualization, seting up multiplayer games over serial and IPX, the best places to buy DOS games, plus you'll get a handful of short reviews of some of the most legendary games from the DOS era.

Hopefully, these articles will help you enjoy your favorite oldies again. For any DOS-fan, this section is an absolute MUST.

You may call it Nostalgia Reincarnate.
