    Nice.

    I keep meaning to reinstall this as I don't have it setup at the moment. Think I will give the new version a go.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I didn't try it out since a long time either, and I always thought about setting it up once again, and get some games running. But this is again something very time consuming, if you want to do it the right way.

    I also have the ExoDOS sets from PD, which seem to be nice too, running under the Meagre emulator. Didn't try them yet either.

    Aw! I don't have these ExoDOS sets. Do you have a link to them?

    Just go to PD, or UG, I think they have them too, depending on your ratio. The normal ExoDOS set is about 100GB, and they have also an ExoDOS RPG set, which is, if I remember right 20GB.

    The point of this collection is to start the games straight away without having to install anything by yourself. Great stuff imo.

    That does sound good, because a lot of the time I'm put off bothering with DOSBox to run an old PC game because of the work needed to create and fiddle with the scripts needed to get each game to work properly (just like the old days of gaming on a PC).
