Classic has the worst ideas
« on: May 06, 2011, 11:20:15 PM »


Well shit. I forgot how to MSDOS.

So guys, I'm feeling particularly indecisive again. Ergo, please to choose:



FUCKIN' WIZARDS! VS CIV KNOCKOFF!!!

Also note I am basically the worst at everything. So I will likely fail. Hard. On the easiest settings.

Pretend it's a blind playthrough.

It sure is going to be the worst idea if you don't make those screenshots bigger. :V

Okay so maybe those screenshots don't need to be bigger but all of them after your first post should be.

Obviously Master of Magic!

I'd say you should go Myrrian and Dark Elf, but to dicks if I could make it work the last twenty times I tried.

Also turns out trying to make a zombie army of resurrected slain monsters and barbarians is FOOL'S GOLD

Zombies are like fool's gold, but less valuable and rarer.

I dunno what you're talking about. That shot of DOS was large and in charge.

Gotta fall in line for Master of Magic, obviously.

After doing cursory research on both, I've decided that if you don't do Master of Magic, I'm gonna have to play it for myself.

So please do it.

Since no one's threatening to do themselves grievous harm if I play it anymore, I guess Master of Magic wins!!!

Now, I just have to manage to do awesome justice to one of my favorite games of all time in one attempt with only the  unceasing criticism of the boards to guide or reinforce my decisions.

Pfft. Feel free to phone it in, it's not like these schmucks have the brains to tell the difference.

D'I mean... We are a discerning bunch! Don't disappoint us! :>_>:

I actually have a copy on indefinite loan from roast beef.

EDIT:

It should also be noted that I am no longer his friend, but I won the friendship and the spoils were master of magic.

so i keep getting my ass kicked because i don't know that a bunch of nagas and phantom warriors guarding a sorcery node are much stronger than a hero and three squads of swordsmen and three squads of skeletons and also should i even go after nodes this early i mean there are a bunch of them and they sound too useful to let someone else claim

also other such massacre-related events

it turns out that i am deathly allergic to manuals and guides so i wonder if there is a way i could watch someone more experienced play the game

hmm

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Is there a way to make DosBox auto-magically double-size its screenshots? Or am I just going to have to hazard a script together to make that happen?

EDIT:
I'm an idiot. I should just use the boards to resize the image on displaying.

EDIT EDIT:
In case Zed you're wondering, this is going up as soon as I can boldly steal someone else's youTube intro to the game.

Irfanview can do batch resizing pretty easily.
