    Trouble is that sort of hardware is getting rarer these days, someday you won't be able to get it at all.


    if there will ever be an alternative I'd suspect the Pi Foundation to do it, having a Pi computer that could completely take over the functions of Windows 98 and XP with the Nvidia Vulkan drivers would be useful for PC gamers looking for a PC that can run old 32bit and 16bit games better.


    since Pi PC's will never be as powerful as the general desktop or laptop computers on the market,

    it makes sense that they do the next best thing, retro gaming.


    Yeah you are right, hardware will eventually get rare as time goes on, but that's just another reason why people should repair and reuse instead of recycle or throw away.
    Either way as long as there's hardware outside i will still consider running games on real hardware better than emulation in every way.

    The same can be said for Windows 98, it is an MSDOS program that has a user friendly UI, and is a 32bit 16bit hybrid. Which explains why some 32bit programs written for XP were able to run on it, games including.


    Also like its predecessor Windows 95, shortcuts to MSDOS programs could be placed on the desktop and then ran with a simple double click.


    We don't have that convenience anymore because later OS's after ME are NT based.

    and command prompt is terrible at emulating MSDOS.


    Without the third party program DOSbox, or virtual machines, lots of people's libraries of DOS games would have been made entirely useless on Windows 10. WOW64 only allows backward compatibility with 32bit programs, there is nothing in Windows 10 that makes it support 16bit properly.


    Yeah i agree with you on that. Windows 95 / 98 and ME were also only programs running on top of DOS.
    However,Windows 9x actually felt like it was its standalone operating system, as they didn't rely on MS-DOS command lines, like Windows 3.1 did.

    And yes it is a shame that Windows 10 has no proper 16-Bit emulation (and probably never will), but I personally don't really care, as emulation is always a bad idea from my point of view.
    If you really want to play old games i suggest you to pick up an old Windows XP computer from ebay, as its backwards compatibility emulation WOW32 supports 16 bit programs much better than any other OS.
    At the same time, its new enough to play lots of other new games (some even from the mid 2010s).

    Windows 3.1 is technically not its own operating system as it basically only runs as an application on top of MS-DOS.
    It also heavily relied on MS-DOS command lines, which means that every time you wanted to install lets say a Driver for example you needed to switch to MS-DOS, load the driver, then back to Windows 3.1 and THEN install the Windows 3.1 driver, THEN restart once again to make the changes take effect in MS-DOS as well as Windows 3.1.

    Kinda inconvenient, is it?

    Windows 3.1, never crashed and did what you needed it to, no faff on top



    also yeah forgot to quote you.

    posted a message on Old school modded minecraft let's play

    Very, very nice Lets Play series.
    Your art of speaking and showing off the map gives me so much nostalgia.
    However, i have a slight improvement that you can make regarding skins and sounds.
    I would suggest you to download this launcher to be able to play very old versions of Minecraft in the much safer online mode
    and have all that stuff like correct skins and sounds.
    Download it here:

    https://mineonline.codie.gg/

    Minecraft 1.2.5 wont probably show up instantly in the versions list.
    Just browse for the 1.2.5 .jar file if it doesn't.

    You could also make a vanilla survival Beta 1.7.3 lets play or a Tekkit Lite survival Lets Play series.
    It would be really cool to see that.


    Bottom line: Excellent Lets play! Keep it up!

    posted a message on Looking for people to join our Minecraft Beta 1.7.3 SMP

    Hi, im looking for some old-school and chill dudes around ages 14-18 (maybe older) who are motivated in participating in a Minecraft Beta 1.7.3 SMP and and are experienced Minecraft players.

    I already started building on the server with another player.
    We have done quite some things, explored a lot and build a small base but theres still A LOT to do.
    Our goal is to Build a huge Base with all the stuff needed (Like storage rooms , stocked ores, a railway ect.)
    but what were really out for is just having fun and playing Minecraft the way it used to be.
    We will maybe add some mods later on when were finished with the game (like Aether or Balkons Weapon Mod)


    NOTE: pls only participate in this SMP if you know FOR SURE that you
    wont get bored of playing old versions of Minecraft. And NO, we wont
    upgrade our server.
    You also MUST have Radmin to be able to join our server.
    It would be nice too if youre living in Europe so that we wont have problems with different timezones





    PM me or add me on Discord (CalmCreeper360 #4469) if you are interested.
