Ancient DOS Games --- Episode 34

LineWars & LineWars II




Additional Information and Corrections:

  • Here's a quick link to Patrick Aalto's LineWars pages: http://linewars.patrickaalto.com


  • I tried to find a better version of the music I used during the credits, but wasn't really able to. It's the music you hear on the title screen for the original LineWars provided you turn mouse support off and have things configured fairly well. It doesn't always play properly and restarts every time you select a new menu option.


  • One interesting little tid-bit is that this is the SECOND time I've reviewed anything made independently by someone in Finland, the first time being Star Mines 2 in Ancient DOS Games Episode 4.


  • I was recently informed that the reason why the S3 800x600 graphics mode in LineWars II doesn't work in DOSBox is because the current version of DOSBox (v0.74) emulates the S3Trio64V2 chipset... which was a newer version of the S3 hardware that LineWars II can't properly detect and utilize. Ah well, maybe in future versions of DOSBox. ;)
