    Hi everyone!

    Now that my Time-Machine is more or less finished, I will produce a lot more videos.

    Eventually I will cover my Time-Machine, tips and tricks, lots of Gaming footage and music and all of that.

    Rather than start a new thread each time, I will just post any updates in this thread! I hope this is ok.

    What is a Time-machine? I will explain it in a lot more detail in the near future. In the meantime here are a few videos to wet your appetite.

    I'm planning to have regular updates. Little guides, reviews, intros and everything around the topic of MS-DOS Time-machine gaming.

    Feel free to ask my anything and everything about the topic of MS-DOS gaming. Please note that I "specialise" on MS-DOS gaming only. Windows 95/98 and even 3D accelerators is all too "new" for me :)

    If there are things you want to know I might make a guide for it if the demand is strong enough.

    My first tutorial / guide:

    This video (Part 1 of 4) shows how to get GOG.com DOS games running on a MS-DOS Time-Machine.

    This is the easiest "type" of game, only running from the hard drive and not using a CD-ROM.

    "Harder" cases to follow soon :)

    Thanks guys!

    There will be a TON of videos to come.

    Tomorrow I will cover another "type" of GOG.com game to get going on a MS-DOS Time-Machine.

    The final "type" is quite complex, I spent all day mucking around with it and produced a ton of useless CD-Rs :)

    Some of the games come with a non-standard CUE sheet which has the Audio tracks as .OGG files. But I figured out how to resolve this :)

    It will all be revealed soon. And lots of videos about the basics, how to partition the HDD, installing Windows and hiding it, choices of components...

    LOTS to come!

    Intro: Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis with AWE64 Gold and Roland CM-32L

    Big fan of your work Mau1wurf1977. :thumbup: Fate of Atlantis...wow the memories.

    Really need to get a PC of my own set up for this exact purpose so I'm also interested in what hardware your running.

    Awesome stuff mate. Always a fan of your posts. Being a hardware buff, What components are you using in your time machine?

    486DX4 as you mentioned in the video? I have recently acquired a P100 which i need to source a new battery for the motherboard. Ideally after a 5ΒΌ working drive too :)

    I'm looking to turn this into a similar setup in the garage.

    These videos are really meant to be a road of discovery :)

    I could just say: Get this, this and that, but I want to explain it all, back it up with evidence, a bit of gaming footage here and there. There is quite a lot to MS-DOS gaming. We are talking covering 10 years of technology with a single PC, so it's riddled with exceptions and little challenges :)

    Next video (This will explain A LOT of what's to come)!

    MS-DOS Time-Machine Goal #1: One PC does it all!

    Another video!

    While many CD images that GOG.com provides are full Installation CDs, some are not and need extra steps to get going on a MS-DOS Time-Machine.
