    nice thread idea, OP needs to edit them all into the first post (use name, then details under spoiler tags)

    Easiest way imho is to either contact the mod for this section (Kreij, Mussels, Easy Rhino as detailed at the bottom of the Games section forum page), or report the OP with a request for Sticky. Option 2 is probably the easiest method.

    +1 to sticky, if the OP is cleaned up and organized as Mussels suggests. Maybe this thread needs a new OP? Addsub hasn't been on since the end of January...

    or you know, its already stickied and you're too slow to have noticed :p



    as to thread cleanup... i dont think i can replace/alter the OP. if someone makes a cleaned up edited version of the post and posts it here (under spoiler tags or something) i'll be willing to edit it into the OP.

    Yep I didn't notice, saw the thread in the latest post and didn't even notice it lol!

    For a different member taking over OP, I could've sworn it's been done before, but maybe it I am mistaken. Might be something W1z did a long time ago...or maybe it was just a mod taking the time and doing what you're offering to do.

    the list from here should be in the OP, with or without spoiler tags, IMO

    Also add this... doesn't seem to fit in 1 post, hence the double post

    Virtualization Tools
    Some of the games above are old enough that an emulator/virtualised enviroment may be needed. Here are some of the most popular (and free) ones in order from specific to general use.

    ScummVM - Allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

    DOSBox - Emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, joystick, modem, etc., necessary for running many old MS-DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and FreeBSD.

    Virtual PC - Lets you create separate virtual machines on your Windows desktop, each of which virtualizes the hardware of a complete physical computer. Use virtual machines to run operating systems such as MS-DOS, Windows, and OS/2. Virtual PC Guy's Blog.

    Car wars style game for PC.. The community is kool and the developers are nice and update the game regularly
    http://www.dark-wind.com/

    If you like REAL strategy and can tolerate a DOS game.. These 2 games are quite detailed.. Only played WiR.. GOD..took a long time to complete

    War in Russia
    http://www.matrixgames.com/Games/warinrussia/features.asp

    Pacific War
    http://www.matrixgames.com/games/pacificwar/features.asp

    ----------------
    Battletech boardgame to PC conversion..Very good game and is a faithful port of the classic boadgame with all level 1 and 2 rules implemented. Some level 3 rules are implemented too.. infantry,tanks,battlemechs,hovercraft.. No spacecraft or aero fighters though:ohwell:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/megamek/

    and here is the persistant campaign client
    http://www.mekwars.org/

    All I can think of atm


    "EDIT"
    http://www.vassalengine.org/download.php
    If you like playing classic board games and have trouble getting a head to head game going.. try playing these board games online..A superb interface with a large selection of modules(games).. doesn't come with the game rules so it helps to own a physical copy of the game but alot of times you can google the rules for the game in question OR ask around and see if someone that has the game will make some scans of the rule book..hint.. see below

    I collect Board games and such an interface is a godsend.. I dont use it much but I have used it in the past..My collection is actually worth a good sum of money

    Yeah, I'm going to have to clean up and update this thread one of these days. Plus I got at least half a dozen new free games to add.

    Note: Spellborn servers have been shut down. I've edited that post.

    Amazing game, for heroes who don't give a fuck about graphics and hype but who cares and wants to see a great immersive gameplay with kickass soundtrack.

    Absolutely geeky and awesome.
