I didn't start playing until just over 2 years ago. I did play vgap RAW back in the mid 90's but where it is is Vgap based RAW was a very different game.

Enjoying your site, and will keep the IRJTN in check for you

BBS'n and stuff

Post by Sysop » Thu Aug 25, 2005 1:01 pm

I used Telegard for a while then moved up to Renegade when the development dropped off for TG. If you were to look at my old site though, you would have never been able to tell it was Renegade because it was modded so much.

Back in the Commodore days we used a system called Color 64. That was hands down the best BBS software I ever used. It was almost completely in basic and you could do whatever you wanted with it :twisted:

Did you guys ever play TW2002 v1.03d?

I was so addicted to that game, I spent a fortune upgrading and agonzing over the purchase of even a math co-processor for my 8086 and then going from 1200 baud to 4800 to 9600, 14,400....

I used and rebuilt 286-12 386 sx dx ,etc.....

All that time and practice just to play and obtain the Evil Imperial StarShip.

Trade Wars was excellent... Think I disovered that around the time I discovered VGAP :)

Actually an Amiga 500..... but the software was always late and expensive, same with parts and commodore never supported the amiga 500 to be competative against the clones.

A TRS-80 :shock:

A friend of mine had a one ... I remember watching some game about taxing peasants and the memory was 4kb? Does that sound right? It was sooooo long ago.

We used to play the Avalon Hill game ... The Russian Campaign then, plus various other SSI games.

Mine was the C=64... What a tank. It still works today; the floppies haven't deteriorated over the years either. Great system.

I still have my Green screen C-64. My kids play battle chess on it today.
They think its COOL, I keep telling them that was top of the line graphic's and they laugh at me.
