Will I be able to walk in stations using text input only? It's only fair that I'll be able to play on my pc from 1989.

Incarna will be a failure if walking in stations does not work on my abacus.

total fail if I can't get 40FPS out of burnt sticks on a cave wall, or 30FPS with dynamic lighting enabled.

Incarna takes forever to load up on this tape drive.

Finally, a good thread. And I'll say that, currently, I have no problem playing on my scientific calculator and will be whining incessantly for weeks on end, via this forum, if I can no longer run the game post Incarna.

I mean, seriously, why do things have to change anyway? I'm completely happy with old content and will play that content until my eyes fall out and my family disowns me, if given the option.

I'm still ****ed over the fact that books are going digital; the fact that I had to put down my horses in exchange for a motor power vehicle and the fact this radio no longer plays my favorite listening/story-time stations.

You won't even be able to walk in stations AT ALL.

Walk in your own ROOM. BY YOURSELF.

Figure out a way that DOS support can sell more copies of the Twilight MMO, and you'll get it.

I'd start by pointing out the big bad boy of lolcliche, lol****fanatsy WoW isn't on DOS atm. That should do it Razz

You fanboys sicken me. I would expect an MMO to gather more subscriptions by pandering to slightly older technology than providing a useless contentless feature like standing in quarters.

I'm sure a lot of people look forwards to upgrading something in order to not use WIS.

Except the 64 in C64 was for the 64kb of RAM, the processor was 8-bit.

LMAO.

I loved my Spectrum 128, although the first comp I had was an Acorn Electron Embarassed

Used to have friends with C64's or Amstrad CPC's and the 'mine is better' arguments were always funny.

When the space shuttle Endeavour launches on the 29th, will their own-board computer be able to handle WIS? I mean, we all know what happened to the Mars Rover when it received too many commands from mission control and fritzed out the processor...

Alternatively, will my original GameBoy run it if I modify it to include a wireless adapter?
