I have one too.
I'm bringing it to RCM, but more for the purposes of donating it to the museum.

Oooh, old PC games. This is an area I definitely want to revisit! :D

A few games I recall loving back in the day:

Captain Comic
Jill of the Jungle
One Must Fall (like Rise of the Robots, but it was actually playable! ;))

Would they all run on a 286?

I may have to bring my 386 and/or 486 as well by the looks of it. Some of the games suggested will need a slightly faster machine.

If anyone else takes a PC, maybe a 2 play game of Doom over serial cable!  :P

The room in my car is vanishing quite quickly!
I do have a couple of old DOS 486 PCs
I could get DOOM on one of them and bring it to RCM

Does any of your old PCs have a network card? Both of my old 486's have a network card (and properly confiugred MS LAN Manager for DOS software) so for quicker gameplay, could do the two player thing over LAN (just need a hub/switch or a crossover cable)

All of my PCs have LAN capability! One even has Token Ring! (Not that I can use it at home.)

I can bring LAN cables, switches etc. My 286 only has BNC at the moment...

I'll dig both of my 486's out over the easter holiday, make sure all the LAN manager stuff is on them and get DOOM up and running.

Which protocol is best for you? NetBEUI or TCP/IP?
(I'll also make sure the serial ports work, just in case ;) )

This looks like I'm bringing a PC :D

One of my old 486's still has it's original keyboard and mouse! So the controls will be very retro!

I've just got to make sure there's room to fit Doom on the 80MB hard drive :D

OK!
I'll be diggin my old 486's out over the course of the easter weekend, so I'll get the relevant protocols installed .... this is giving me a serious blast from the past, the thought of messing about with Microsoft LAN Manager!
