Re: Capitalism
Trying this game out for the first time. Game wouldn't run (keeps asking you to load the game CD first). Found the following instructions, which let me start the game at least. The drive & game folder mentioned below is where ever you extracted the files. A DOS name will be truncated to 8 characters, probably CAPITALI, upon extraction.

You have to mount the game folder to C:
mount c: d:\games\capitalism

Then you have to mount the same game folder to another drive, but as type of cdrom
mount h: d:\games\capitalism -t cdrom -ioctl

Then you have to change drive to the C drive you mounted
c:

Then launch the game

Re: Motor City
MaxPower napísal: Made it to the end (1929). Was never able to build an engine over 50hp, so apparently the HP bug still exists. Although the more disturbing bug - around 1921 all the countries stopped buying cars! Only way I could get anything to sell anywhere was price them below $25!!!

Last 9 years flew by since I just ended up shutting everything down and had enough cash built up that I made it to the end while doing nothing. Reloaded and tried several different things but nothing I did made sales come back or improve


Tried 2nd game and now I can build engines & chassis over 50hp! Not sure what went wrong with the 1st game, but apparently the hp bug is fixed w/the patch. :-) R&D guy still seems to be picky about what he'll let you develop - have an 80hp engine and won't let me build a chassis to support it.

Re: Motor City
Going through the WW1 years now. That newspaper on the end of your desk starts working around this time.You can start building/converting to assembly line factories and hiring unskilled workers. The timeline I found (see that walkthrough doc I mentioned earlier) states a "heavy decline" in German & Austria sales when the war starts....... replace "heavy decline" with "total elimination".

Still can't build an engine > 50hp. Actually this kind of sucks the life out of R&D department....dude won't let me build better engines or chassis so all I do is put new car bodies on the same platform!

One thing I recall reading on one of those walkthrough docs I mentioned; factories don't burn down on easy level and/or running @ fast speed. Yeah, that's false. I've had several burn down.:-D

The races are a joke (maybe I already said that?). All I do is get passed by everyone and then end up winning by several minutes. I did throw some $'s in R&D at racing development, but now I'm wondering if it makes any difference (on easy level at least). Run dosbox speed (F12) at about 9410 cycles for the test drive & race modes

Re: Motor City
One odd thing I discovered, you can mix up the chassis & engines with different sized car bodies. Take a small body, medium chassis, and limo/luxury engine and (as long as you don't violate the HP or weight requirements) this can be built/sold. The engine makes sense (since there are no size limitations placed on car bodies), but I'd expect the larger chassis sizes to need to be mated w/the same sized body.

On the plus side, this solves my problem w/getting that PITA dude in research to let me develop an over 25HP small chassis/engine........I can use the 35, 50, or 70HP versions (only up to 48HP on an engine, still not sure about the engine bug/fix) I have for the bigger cars! ;-)

*This is still my 1st run through of the game, so I'm on easy difficulty.

Game manuals
Just found this. Looks like it might be a good site for hard to find game manuals. Not sure why the underdogs.org address by itself doesn't open this page, but I was able to find and copy a manual I was having trouble finding.

Game manual. Answers some questions

Walk-through & patch for the US version (Oldtimer is the German version)

http://www.abandonia.com/en/games/496/Motor+City.html

The patch apparently fixes several bugs. I haven't made it far enough through my 1st game to verify if the HP bug is fixed.

Re: Fallout 2
Fallout on steroids. Although it's a good sequel, great even, to the original IDK if I'd pay $10 for it today. Especially when you can get Fallout 1 for free. Try that first. Fallout 2 is bigger, better, but more of the same. If you don't like the turn-based hex-map style gameplay I definitely wouldn't pay $10 for #2.

I have the disks, manual, and the box it came in. Not sure if that's worth more vs. a downloaded version!

Re: WW2 plane game
Might be this. Had a large amount of aircraft, both US and Japan, you could play. Still have the game & manuals but not loaded anywhere. From the books it looks like the menu text was green on black. 1994 Microprose

Re: Ports of Call
Game has a manual but it seems to lack details....like how to rescue survivors floating in a life-raft. Anyone know of an additional hints or tips document for this game?
