    If you're asking for pirated software, the answer is that we do not discuss that here.

    That was fun!

    Unfortunately its a weak version of a game I played oh-so many years ago. About 96-97 I think. Same kind of thing only players were situated on mini planets, with gravity and that. It was amazing. Infact they stole a few weapons from that game. Pinapple and Jackhammer are ripped. But ho hum. I'll probably never remember the name of that game, RIP, whatever you were.

    Yes!! I too had it for DOS (but it was actually called Scorched Earth). Still, an all-time classic. :cool:

    Uhh...I'd like to emulate like Windows 95 to play Scorched Earth. Any idea how to do that without breaking the bank on my Mac. In fact there are several Pentium 100 Mhz era games I'd like to relive too. :cool:

    Yes, I have a copy of Windows 95 laying around. Kekeke...

    Actually, no matter what I said about it before I did find myself playing it during lectures today :D if this thing supported Bonjour then I'd cry.
