(re: re: Building Old Computers For Sierra Gaming)
It was funny to read this post. I was just putting together a Sierra game system just yesterday. It’s one of those ideas I have been toying with for a long time. Plus I was cleaning out a lot of extra parts I have around here, becasue I seem to always accumulate parts and systems when I fix computers for people. The system I put together is a Gateway 166 mhz mmx processor. I wished it was slower. I can play most of the Sierra games without error but some like Space Quest 5 I get an error which i’ve seen so many times because of speed. It still plays but because of the unable to initialize audio hardware error is there I don’t get the full affect on sounds. Like when Roger sits in the captains chair! The cool thing to do is get a Sound Blaster sound card and update the sound drivers and run the general midi drivers for the older games. It is so much cooler that way! I’m going to start posting in here more often!
