Pratt if you have a copy of SSI's Sword of Aragon up there with an intact manual...I would be interested!

Ha, me, too! -- Sword of Aragon was one of those SSI titles I always wanted to buy but somehow never got around to it. (Partly because copies were rare in my area.)

I've been at my brothers' for the weekend, so progress has not been made in sorting the giant stack of C64 things.

What I do have, is a copy of War for Krynn. (Whether the disc works or not, who knows.) But I think that's still available on PC; I know I have a DOS/Win copy somewhere.


It occurs to me that comparing with the 1600ish games (or however many) on the emulator would be useful in figuring out what's worth the buy.

Update after re-reading the original post: okay, looks like the new C64 emulator comes with no games per se? You have to download them from somewhere else?
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

That is a game I would love to see someone redo.

I've got a game only a week or so off finishing, for THEC64 its going to be a prg file until I figure something else out but the prg files seem quite common now anyway,, its not a remake of a particular game, but there were plenty of games like this in the 80s, I don't want to give the info yet, but stay tuned . I like it so far , I have done it in Assembly so the screen is smooth.

As a clue its got fruit in it :)

TheC64 does come with a number of games but many faves are missing, most likely due to licensing issues. That's where the download thing comes in since almost every game has an emulator-ready file out there somewhere on the internettywebz. You can even make your own file if you have a working original 1541 or 1571 drive and some special software and related cable.

I wonder what the chances are of Sword of Aragon being remade...

my second THEC64 and joystick just arrived, may I remind you guys of history, you wont be able to get these forever and then the second hand ones will be so expensive, get one while you still can.  THEC64 is like a full system but enhanced it really is worth it

I played either the original Beachhead or one of its sequels…maybe Beachhead 2? For its time it was great.

I played that too! It was also very good. As an aside, if you like fantasy themed chess, try the original Archon. And if you enjoy platformers, try Impossible Mission.

I remember the ads for Elite but never played it. It’s a wire-frame space flight sim, isn’t it?
