    The return of MicroProse!

    I must say Tiny Combat Arena reminds me much more of "A-10 Cuba!" than the Micropose simulators at the time. If anyone remembers that gem. Which is a good thing as the MacOS version of A-10 Cuba! and A-10 Attack! were the perfect balance of simulator and fun which I don't think any one else has...

    Chess Blog Delivers a Reality Check (July 21, 2021)

    Ke1 is check, can't move there (you forgot Black's a5 bishop) The only thing white can do is block the Queen which the Queen will take. First Knight then Bishop if you really want to stretch it out.. To say it's not checkmate is pedantic. Seems to me the author just has an axe to grind. But...

    Big Mac Attack (January 29, 2021)

    I still have all my CD's. WC3, SWC and the mac version of Systemshock were the real gems, and Warlock and Wolfpack were quirky but loved them still. Loved the mac version of the fun but cheesy Shock Wave Assault which also included Operation Jump Gate, such a great port of the 3DO game. It...

    My Photobucket archive no longer free

    That's why I rigged up an old desktop at my house with nextcloud. https://nextcloud.com/ Were there a lot of challenges to work through, yes. But totally worth it.

    Watch Dralthi Evade Gratha's Mine in SM2 (October 28, 2020)

    Really? I've seen this before. Though come to think of it, it is a lot more common in the SNES version of Wing Commander. There the mine is a flashing red and blue ball. It will play the same sound effect that you get when you crash into a ship.

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    I gave up on Wine for the time being and see if I can just get WCP movies working on windows 10. Only the game refuses to play them. I'm using a clean install from GOG with the Model Upgrade pack installed in it first. And a mostly brand new Windows 10 install with version 1909. Nvidia...
