MS-DOS Abandonware

How to Play Old MS-DOS Abandonware Games

 

With modern operation systems(OS) based on Windows, Linux or MAC OS, you mostly cannot play old games designed for MS-DOS or old Windows distributions like Windows 3.1 or 95. This article shows your the possibilities of how to play those games.

If you have an old game and an OS that cannot play it properly, you have following options:

Emulator

This option is mostly reasonable for DOS games even when there are some Windows emulators for Linux or MAC. Emulator is a program, that can run a different  program in an environment typical for this program. For example MS-DOS emulator for Windows can run MS-DOS programs in Windows environment.

The best DOS emulator you can find is definitely DOSBOX. About 70% games run in default configuration and you can customize settings for almost every old DOS game. There are several PC emulators like BOCHS but they mostly have poor performance and you will probably not be able to play more complex games. PC emulator is a program emulating a complete PC, with a DOS image, you can boot up a whole new virtual computer. Those emulators are quite ineffective in compare with virtualization mentioned later. You can google some more stuff if interested, just look for "DOS emulator" or "PC emulator" for your system.

Something a little else is VDMSound Project. It emulates old sound card and other hardware to allow playing old DOS games directly under Windows. Unfortunately, this emulator is currently not working with Windows Vista and 7. But if you have NT/2000/XP system it's definitely worth a try,

DOSBOX

I will focus on DOSBOX DOS emulator because it is a top of all possible emulators. DOSBOX is available for a wide range of OS including Windows, Linux, MAC and even Solaris is supported. There are also a lot of different frontends available to download at dosbox page. Complete documentation is available here. We will focus here only at some specific options.

When you install DOSBOX, you can play your old games pretty easy. In Windows, you can drag&drop game executable file at the desktop icon and the game will start instantly, detailed description is located here, with workaround for other OS. DOSBOX has some shortcuts to enter/leave fullscreen, change graphics, etc. those shortcuts are available here. Take your time to browse the documentation a bit, it cannot hurt you. Those basic information will be enough to play a wide area of games. Some games however require some special settings to work. every DOSBOX installation contains a configuration file. Name and location can differ based on OS but when you find some game not working with default settings, you will have to change it. Please note, that you will need a specific configuration file for every game that don't work with default settings. You can use program parameter -userconf to load a specific configuration file. Please keep in mind that there can be multiple .EXE files located in your game directory. Refer to the game manual about the meaning of every file if not sure. When you start a DOSBOX without a parameter, you will get a DOS shell. All commands you can use are listed here. You can also use some utilities, take a closer look at MOUNT (for mounting disk devices including CD-ROM), CONFIG (For managing configuration files) and KEYB or IMGMOUNT can be pretty usefull.

Virtualization

In computing, virtualization is the facility that allows multiple operating systems to simultaneously share processor resources in a safe and efficient manner, a facility generically known as hardware virtualization. In the late 1990s x86 virtualization was achieved by complex software techniques which overcame the processor's lack of virtualization support and attained reasonable performance. In the mid 2000s, both Intel and AMD added hardware support to their processors making virtualization software simpler, and later hardware changes provided substantial speed improvements. Source: wikipedia.org

Virtualization is a good option to run both Windows or DOS games. You just have to setup a virtual machine and install an old Windows distribution or a simple DOS. Ideally install Windows 95/98 if you have some and you will get a DOS boot capability for free. If you wish to install a DOS only I recommend FreeDOS. It's free and has a lot of modern useful tools included. You can get a nice full distribution packed to an ISO image.This method is unfortunately much more complex and requires some basic skills with OS installation and with DOS OS. Anyway there is a project called RetroUSB that can be very helpful since you can boot an image directly to you virtual machine without a further configuration.

There are several virtualization tools that you can get. Windows users will probably choose a VirtualPC because it can do the job fine and is available for free. There are several other tools like Xen or Qemu but they require advanced computer skills to get them to work. See more information at their web pages. The most suitable solution for all OS is definitely VMware. It is basically not for free, but they offer a VMware player for free that is sufficient for our purpose.

Compatibility mode

This option is for old Windows games that cannot be run normally. This can be done under Windows only. Modern Windows OS have a mode called "Compatibility mode". In this mode, you can simulate an environment of older Windows systems like Win95. Some old Windows games for Win95/98 or even earlier will work in this mode. You may be even lucky with some newer DOS games.

Compatibility Image

You can set a compatibility mode for an old executable you wish to run that was designed for Windows 95 or even older. Some DOS games can run too but don't count on it too much. To initiate this dialog simply select preferences of the executable you wish to run. Selecting all checkboxes is usually a best choice but you can experiment with it.

In this platformer, you can run, jump, climb walls and shoot the enemies. In the levels are also some power-ups for Zool. There are life-spending hearts, smart bombs, shields, more powerful jump-skill and a twin Zool. This "twin" makes all your motions a few seconds after you do.

The gameplay is similar to the original, but the character can now scale walls, and has some new spinning attack moves. Much was made at the time of the game's release of the fact that you could play as either Zool or his girlfriend Zooz, and the two characters completed each level in slightly different ways.

Real-time strategy game with a difference: you fight for control of the sectors, some of which contains manufactories which can gain you additional units. Touch the "flag" in the sector and it's yours. Capture the sector before the new unit comes out of the manufactory and the new unit is yours. With six different robots (different armaments and armor and speed), multiple vehicles (from jeeps to tanks) the robots can utilize, your ultimate objective is to destroy the opponent's base... And prevent him from doing the same to you...

The terrain is totally destroyable and randomly created (4 billion possibilities). The game itself is round-based, which means you have a certain amount of time to make a "move" with your worm, then it's the next team's turn.

The game takes place in the domain of Trebor, the titular Mad Overlord. Trebor was once only power-mad, but went off the deep end after he acquired a magical amulet of immense power only to have it stolen from him by his nemesis the evil archmage Werdna. Werdna, not quite sure how to use the amulet properly, accidentally causes an earthquake which creates a ten-level dungeon beneath Trebor's castle. To avoid looking silly, Werdna declares the dungeon to be the new lair for him and his monster hordes. Trebor, not to be outdone, declares the labyrinth is in fact his new Proving Grounds where adventurers must prove themselves for membership in his elite honor guard (and incidentally retrieve his amulet in the process). Thus your goal in the game is to descend to the tenth floor of the labyrinth, defeat Werdna, and retrieve the fabled amulet.

The classic dungeon crawler RPG series continues in Wizardry II. The sequel to the original Wizardry follows the defeat of the evil Werdna and the return of Mad Overlord Trebor's amulet. Following your party's success in that adventure, they were inducted into Trebor's personal honor guard. Unfortunately this particular honor didn't last very long as Trebor's madness and obsession with the amulet and preventing Werdna's return drove him to suicide.

WarCraft: Orcs & Humans is the real-time fantasy strategy game from Blizzard Entertainment that quickly became a best seller. WarCraft has not only become a classic, but it has set new standards for multiplayer games. Set in the mythic kingdom of Azeroth, players are given the task of maintaining a thriving economy while building a war machine with which to destroy the enemy.

By playing either the Humans or the Orcs in this saga, two separate story lines evolve with 12 scenarios per side telling the tale of the battle for Azeroth. From swords to sorcery, all the elements of classic fantasy are here to explore: rich forests, dark dungeons and bubbling swamps await the stalwart troops amassed to fight for dominance. Command many unique armies and creatures including Knights, Archers, Clerics, Warlocks, Daemons, Elementals, and the Dead.

The multiplayer aspects of the game bring WarCraft to a new level. Challenge another player on over 20 custom maps and determine who among you is the supreme warlord. Head to head play is supported over modem, serial link, and IPX networks, and works cross-platform with both the IBM-PC and Macintosh versions.

Don your racing helmet and gear up for speed, only to find that your racing partners are all animals! No tame animals these are, mind you. The shark has a mean bite and the elephant will give you a hefty bump. The game also allows two player mode and you can play a league of tracks to see who finishes with the most wins. Wacky Wheels is the perfect way to let off some steam!

Virtual Pool is the definitive pool simulation game that actually teaches novice players how to play and even promises to improve the game of the pool shark. Developed by a team of physicists and professional pool players, Virtual Pool brings the game to life with the highest degree of accuracy. Balls roll, skid, collide and move on a fully rendered 3D controlled pool table that mirrors reality.

Virtual Pool has revolutionary features that allow players to actually 'walk' around the table to check out their next shot, take a closer look, back away, look left or right and then line-up the shot like they would in a real game with a real table. This title also allows players to take an overhead view from above, something unavailable in a real pool game!

Taking game tips from World Champion pool player "Machine Gun" Lou Butera is guaranteed to improve the player's game. "Machine Gun" Lou will teach players over 30 famous trick shots the player can practice on their computer screen and then implement on a real table.

Ultima 8 picks up the plot strands from the last Ultima. If you haven't played any of the previous Ultimas, it feels a little like reading a chapter from the middle of a novel without reading the rest of it. Who is the Guardian? Why the heck do you annoy him so much? You are the Avatar, a guy trying to lead a perfect life, and the Guardian, because of your (previous) exploits, thinks you're a pain in the neck. The Guardian ingeniously decides to put you in his own realm, Pagan, which you enter through a pentagram. You decide that you have to escape, since here the Guardian is worshiped here, and you find out that the only way to do this is by mastering all the magic of Pagan. And there are a lot.
Game play is fun, and relatively bug-free. Unfortunately, the programmers decided to randomly put in a real-time hack and slash combat system, which can make the game next to impossible at times. This, in my opinion, is the biggest downside the game has. Otherwise, it's pretty enjoyable. The game is well-drawn (personality-wise, 'cause they took out the portraits), easy to talk to, and are actually useful. Pretty much everything is, since the game is just a bit too linear. Sure, you can sneak around and steal stuff from houses, but if you're caught, you're immediately incinerated! The game has a good job at drawing you in and can be very rewarding.
The graphics are good animated and beautiful! As for the sound it’s great too!
Ultima 8: Pagan is a good game. The game is enjoyable and I recommend it if you're an RPG addict. You won’t be disappointed!

The black stone starts to shine. You know what it means: Britannia needs you! As you run to the back of your house, you see that there is already a red moon gate open. "What could it mean?" you think to yourself as you heroically step through the red mist into another world...

And so starts another adventure in the land of Ultima. A long time has passed since your quest with the gargoyles concluded and things have changed quite a bit; the user interface being one of them. This time you have a glorious full-screen view of Britannia and its inhabitants as they carry out their daily duties.

The graphics in this game are superb, although sometimes it might be a bit hard to see certain objects as they can be very small (keys for example). The world is now even more alive as people carry on with their lives cooking, working and sleeping. Each person has their own personality and you will see that most of them are important in your quests in one way or another. The world is also a little more intelligent in this game. You will not be able to just steal anything as your party members could get annoyed with you. Also attacking people in town could attract the town guard and then you’re in trouble.

It wouldn’t be an RPG without spells of some kind, and there are plenty. As in Ultima VI, you need reagents and a spell book to perform spells.

The sound in this game is also very good. I’m always amazed when such simple music can sound so wonderful and deep and keep me mesmerized for hours on end.

The game itself is very large and will take a long time to finish. You will have a choice of many side-quests along the way to solving the main quest and each of them can keep you occupied for ages.

The one thing missing from the game, in my opinion, is the character creation; which was brilliant in Ultima VI. You get to choose a name, a gender and a portrait. This to me is not enough as I think character creation is probably the best part about RPG’s.

Ultima 5 uses the basics of the Ultima 4 engine, an overhead perspective of Britannia or one of many towns or dungeons, which use a rosette-compass 3D view. Many actions are expanded, including much more world interactivity and much deeper characters than the 'signpost' NPCs of Ultima 4.

The fourth game in the now well-established Ultima series featured an improved version of the Ultima IV engine, with color graphics and better character interaction (you could now have actual conversations with NPCs). But what really makes Ultima IV shine is its radical departure from any other RPG made before or since in terms of the story and goal.

The sequel to Ultima featured several improvements over the original, such as seperate town and world maps, and the concept of traveling through time gates into different eras on Earth. Other than that the gameplay is pretty much the same as in Ultima I, with your single character roaming the land fighting monsters and looking for key items.

This is an old Amiga game where you feature as the caveman taxi driver, flying around caves in your self-invented, pedal-powered flying machine. As you become more skillful, new hazards such as pterodactyls, dinosaurs and rising water levels make your day at work anything but boring. If you're looking for an enjoyable, relaxing game with beautiful graphics, then play Ugh!.

One great thing about Linux is that spyware is unable to effect the system because the one major difference between Windows and Linux is that it is written without a registry which is where most or all spyware is designed to infect which Windows relies soley on, and so there is one major reason to use Wine, Cedega as an application layor to run Windows software and games even though the registry files still exist the system doesnt depend on it so the spyware is unable to function.

 

Extra Repositories for Lucid Lynx

A Few Tips

 

Make sure that the Synaptic package manager is installed in Lucid Lynx by opening a terminal and typing

sudo apt-get install synaptic

Run Synaptic once it is installed. You will find it in (Ubuntu) System>Administration or (Kubuntu) Applications>System

Synaptic Package Manager

Synaptic Package Manager, the Front End of Apt-Get

Then bring out her voice with the Ubuntu Studio, Ubuntu Restricted Extras and Medibuntu repositories; and enable the repositories that come with Ubuntu but which are disabled by default. Sounds complicated, it isn’t and I’ll talk you through it (some of it.. enough of it to get you through!).

Ensure wget, vlc, ffmpeg and imagemagick are installed (they should be) by typing:

sudo apt-get install wget vlc ffmpeg imagemagick

Now you’re ready to dress our lucid lynx in some damn sexy kit.

Medibuntu

Medibuntu provides the multimedia codecs that cannot be distributed with Ubuntu due to legal restrictions. Installation is easy, just type or copy and paste the following code into a terminal to install the Medibuntu repository (see bootnotes one and two):

sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get --quiet update

Then copy and paste this next bit into your terminal:

sudo apt-get --yes install app-install-data-medibuntu apport-hooks-medibuntu

Now you’re ready to install the encrypted DVD and non-native media format codecs.

Enter this command into your terminal to enable encrypted DVD playback:

sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

And choose the correct command below to enable non-native media playback for your system:

i386 computers

sudo apt-get install w32codecs

amd64 computers

sudo apt-get install w64codecs

ppc computers

sudo apt-get install ppc-codecs

If you want to install Acrobat Reader you should type “acroread” into Synaptic.

Bootnote One

The Medibuntu DNS server is not always available. This results in the errors listed below being reported when the package lists are updated:

W: Failed to fetch http://packages.medibuntu.org/dists/lucid/Release.gpg  Could not connect to packages.medibuntu.org:80 (88.191.82.11). - connect (110: Connection timed out)

W: Failed to fetch http://packages.medibuntu.org/dists/lucid/non-free/source/Sources.gz Unable to connect to packages.medibuntu.org:http:

There is a fix, thanks to Andrew and Defrysk at WebUpD8. Copy and paste this snippet into your terminal to bypass the DNS servers:

echo "88.191.101.8 packages.medibuntu.org" | sudo tee -a /etc/hosts

Bootnote Two

The Medibuntu PGP Key as provided above is currently out of date and has only been included because it is the one mentioned in the official Medibuntu Howto. The currently working one is available from both the Mit Edu Key Server and the Veridis Key Server. The easiest way to add the key from the Mit PGP Key Server is to copy and paste this snippet into a terminal:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver pgp.mit.edu 0C5A2783
Enable the Disabled Repositories

Open Synaptic, click “Settings” in the top bar menu then click “Repositories”.

Synaptic Software Sources

Synaptic Software Sources

Ensure that all software sources listed under the first tab labeled Ubuntu Software are ticked. Disregard Installable from CD-ROM/DVD.

Tick all software sources listed under the second tab, Other Software, are also ticked. Revisit this tab whenever you add new repositories via the command line.

Install the Restricted Extras

Search Synaptic for “restricted extras”, scroll down the list of packages and find “*buntu Restricted Extras”. Choose to install all versions that match your desktop environment.

Ubuntu Studio

Ubuntu Studio provides a lot of audio and video playback, streaming, editing and creation software. There is no longer any need to add a separate repository to add Ubuntu Studio packages to a regular Ubuntu desktop system. Add Ubuntu Studio by searching Synaptic for “Ubuntu Studio” and clicking the packages you wish to install. Select “Ubuntu Studio Desktop” to install all available Ubuntu Studio components.

PlayOnLinux

This is still the best way to install and manage multiple versions of Wine. It provides access to multitudinous Windows software installation scripts which make installing Windows programs into Lucid Lynx a breeze.

The home page for PlayOnLinux is here.

Add the PlayOnLinux repository to Lucid Lynx and install it with

sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_lucid.list  -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install playonlinux
VirtualBox

VirtualBox allows guest operating systems to be installed within a host operating system. The guest OS is installed on a (emulated) virtual machine and runs at the same time as the host. Good for those who need to use multiple operating systems without rebooting their machines. Fantastic for Linux users who want to run Windows games that will not work in Wine (use VB to install Windows within Linux). The guest will only function once you switch it on (boot the OS with VirtalBox).

The home page is here.

64-bit and 32-bit users should use this terminal command to add the VirtualBox repository, the PPG Key and to install the package:

sudo echo deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian lucid non-free >> /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-3.2

The actual package name (virtualbox-3.2) could change. You can browse for the package “virtual” with Synaptic to ensure you get the most up to date version. I advise against the Open Source Edition (OSE) because it lacks some essential functionality.

IPList

The privacy advocate’s essential security component. IPList is similar to the PeerGuardian program used on Windows – it prevents file downloads from IP addresses that are known to be espiant. That is to say that some people provide downloads and seed torrents for the sole purpose of spying on and tracking down downloaders. IPList drops data packets downloaded from such uploaders and seeders thus helps protect downloader’s privacy.

The homepage is here.

Add the repository by copying and pasting this code into a terminal:

sudo touch /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iplist.list
sudo echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ssakar/ppa/ubuntu lucid main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iplist.list
sudo echo "deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ssakar/ppa/ubuntu lucid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iplist.list
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C6E3D905C8BCD56BB02E6E0B39456311108B243F
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install iplist
GetDeb and PlayDeb

GetDeb and PlayDeb provide prebuilt Debian application and game packages for Ubuntu distros. Where the Ubuntu and GetDeb or PlayDeb repositories provide the same software, the packages provided by GetDeb and PlayDeb are more up to date than those provided by Ubuntu.

The homepage of GetDeb is here.

The homepage of PlayDeb is here.

At the time of writing this, both repositories and homepages are unavailable. According to their blog they will be up and running again soon. I will update with their repository details as soon as I am aware they are available.

SDLMAME & SDLMESS

The version of MAME provided by the official Lucid Lynx Ubuntu repo is out of date. A much better one is provided by WallyWeek.org.

You can add the Lucid MAME repository for major releases by copying and pasting these lines into a terminal:

wget http://sdlmame4ubuntu.org/repoc/957AC3A6.gpg -O- |
sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://sdlmame4ubuntu.org/repoc/lucid.major.list -O
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/sdlmame4ubuntu.major.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mame

If you want to install intermediate releases of MAME then copy and paste these lines into a terminal:

sudo wget http://sdlmame4ubuntu.org/repoc/lucid.urel.list -O
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/sdlmame4ubuntu.urel.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mame

Intermediate releases of SDLMAME can be less stable than their major counterparts.

Another repository for both SDLMAME and SDLMESS can be found at apt.ludomatic.fr/. It is designed for Debian but will provide for Ubuntu soon (so they say).

A good front end for SDLMESS and SDLMAME is QMC2. You can add the Lucid repo and install it with:

sudo echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/mmbossoni-gmail/emu/ubuntu lucid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 3212DC8B
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qmc2

Alternatively, use this one line command to add the repositories to Lucid:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mmbossoni-gmail/emu
LAMP

Not a repository but a vital piece of kit for anyone who wants to install web apps on his local computer, write and test PHP scripts or build a website that requires facilities usually only offered by web servers.

Lamp is the acronym for:

  • Linux
  • Apache
  • MySQL
  • PHP

It converts a regular desktop operating system into a web server capable system. And, thanks to the Ubuntu developers, is very easy to install into Lucid (and Karmic). Just copy and paste this line into a terminal and watch the magic be done:

sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

Next you will want to install PHPMyAdmin, the database management package:

sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin

The best way to manage your LAMP server (that I know of) is with Webmin which can be downloaded and installed from here.

Check your LAMP server is properly installed by pointing your web browser to http://localhost where you should be greeted by an Apache welcome message (of a sort).

You will be able to view PHPMyAdmin at http://localhost/phpmyadmin

If you cannot access PHPMyAdmin then you will need to create a symlink to it with:

sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /var/www/phpmyadmin

You can enable Apache mod_rewrite with:

sudo a2enmod rewrite
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

To view your server space you need to point your file manager to /var/www

You can give yourself ownership of /var/www with

sudo chown username:username /var/www

Exchange “username” for your Lucid Lynx username.
