who else had an XT??
mine was 4.77Mhz, 10Mb hard disk, CGA graphics. i ran msdos 3.3 and quickbasic
i remember PGA tour golf - in 4 colour CGA
xenon 2 - in monochrome
leather goddesses of phobos.
these games were amazing and these are the ones i remember best..
so who else had an xt? (im 38)
I never had the chance to try it myself. It seemed kinda fun and old school. We did have some computers in elementary school that could use CGA, though.
i completed eye of the beholder like this
i did have the maps though. :D
Wow, that game looks old school O.O. I remember playing games in 4 colors like this (cyan, magenta, white and black) but no adventure game. Also @JamesV
was making a similar game for the 84+CE but I don't know if he's still into calc stuff nowadays. It would be cool if he added a CGA mode, just for kicks. :D
Indeed - Zargul is inspired directly by Eye of the Beholder, even though admittedly I've not played EotB a great deal.
I am still working on calc stuff.. Just slowly :( Although the last few weeks I've been spending more time on a new project :)
Ah ok. Back then there were a lot of similar games of the same style. :)
does anyone remember a game called Xonix? could do with being remade for calc
Fwiw EotB did support more proper colors.
I'm way too young to have known the XT, all I know is that the legacy cruft left by the IBM PC is a horrible plague for modern systems. :P
what a screenshot :D
JamesV is porting this game to the CE kinda. Or at least he's re-using some of the graphics. The character UI looks identical. I don,t know what happened to it, though.
@Streetwalrus @DJ Omnimaga
It's still on my to-do list. It's an EotB style game using the graphics, but I had a different story planned with different levels and was going to add my own touch to the game play, etc.

I think you meant to mention @kotu
I don't have a CE myself, and I don't really intend to get one for now, but I'll still wish you the best James. I should give your 83+/84+ Alien Breed games a try sometime instead. And make Illusiat happen. Been a while since I've messed with calculators.
Street I was mentioning you since you posted that screenshot. :P
And yeah I agree about Illusiat :3=
