I've been thinking about this for a while now. I'd sure like to play that old game, "Knights of the Sky" again for kicks. I think Microprose did it, I could be wrong.
But.. I see all kinds of consol game emulatoers out there, I wonder if it's possible to get an old game like KoS to run on moden day computers, and I wonder were on Earth I could find old 486 games.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to start looking.

~Thanks.

Now that sets me back... I used to play that game when I was a little kid, one of my first flight sims! It sure would be nice to take that one for a spin again.

Look for "abandonware" on Google. I have found some good old games this way http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Remember Dogfight? It was huge-it took 3 diskettes to store that monster.
