Hi,

Pity the Conqueror is still commercial, as I have many games that run in Dosbox and run on DOS on the Q68/SGC QL

They could of been bundled as an SD Card to run on the Q68.

But a non starter due the status of the Conqueror.

I suppose new games will have to be written for the QL, instead of relying on the older software.


Regards,

Derek

It is not the game(s), but the DOS emulator, I suppose if a user already has purchased the DP Collection, or like me has bought an individual copy of the Conqueror, then this should be OK.

I will look into this and see if I can produce the DOS games QWA container image for the Q68 or other system that support this.

I think I included your game on new Q68 sales already, as I like to give people the best software around...

No need to send money... I have enough.

Can you make a game that uses the Q68 DISP_MODE 2, which is 512x256 65535 colours aka QL Mode 33?

Not sure really, for me I love making graphics with the 4 colour white, green, red, black. I think being so restrictive makes it fun :D
