RickR Posted June 25, 2017 Report Share Posted June 25, 2017 This all started due to a P'Tach on facebook. He asked if anyone had a really old laptop for sale. I did. A really nice Toshiba 486 laptop in pristine condition. The battery still holds a charge. His idea was to use the old laptop to play the old floppy disk based games. Most notably, DOOM. The dude turned out the be a major flake. I took a bunch of pictures, answered a bunch of questions, agreed to a price, and then....nothing. No "sorry, I changed my mind" (which would have been fine). No response at all. Cowardly flake. What is wrong with people? So now, I'm stealing his idea. I think it might be kind of cool. I plan on installing Doom and whatever classic games I can find on this thing and reporting here how it works. The only issue -- I threw out all those games eons ago. I'll do a googlo search, but maybe someone here can more quickly direct me to a download area for Doom (and other game) floppy images. The idea is to actually create the floppy disks and load them onto the laptop that way. Who wants to help a brother out?
