    Found this thing just lying around the office, was the old office computer. Quickbooks doesn't need much to run, but when I got my current computer my old one went to the office.

    So I decided to install windows 98 se on it, hook up my 17" crt monitor to it and put it on a school desk next to this computer.

    It's a Pentium 2 400mhz, 448mb ram all at least 100mhz, 13.6gb HD, Voodoo3 2000 PCI

    Some games I already have installed on it:

    Age of Empires Gold
    American McGee's Alice
    Deus Ex
    Drakan
    Dungeon Keeper 2
    Half-Life
    Hitman Codename 47
    Need For Speed - Porsche Unleashed (my high stakes game cd doesn't work anymore so no go on that :( [porsche unleashed sucks, i can't figure out the 3rd driving mission at all] )
    Serious Sam
    Sin
    Terminal Velocity

    dos games

    Circuits Edge
    Duke Nukem 3D
    Eradicator
    Mines of Titan
    One Must Fall
    Prophecy
    Syndicate
    Warcraft 1 & 2


    First I gotta say Hitman is a shitty game, the very beginning sucks and most the time I can't even get the f*in elevator to work to continue the game. The controls are all fucked up too.

    Serious Sam could run a little better but it still runs fine

    Was thinking about installing Kingpin Expendable, Final Fantasy 7, but I remember not getting very far into Kingpin before getting bored of it back in the day...plus I had a p3 600 w/ tnt2 ultra when that game came out (or at least when I heard about it) I dunno if this comp can run it. I was considering installing FF7 because it is windows 98 and because of that I shouldn't run into the usual problems that game gives, but having a 3dfx card it just might not work at all :/

    I'd like to have some RPG's but I can't think of any pc rpgs at all for this computer, and btw it's not hooked up to the internet I don't have the drivers for the mobo and can't get the shit to work even using an offboard nic :squint: NWN is not an option, I just didn't like that game.

    :mamoru:

    i have something similar on cd, Amazon Trail (edit: it's the only cd that didn't show up very well :/)

    [​IMG]

    Too lazy to rotate it, monitor looks clean but I guess it's not...the picture made sure to show me that :o I cleaned the whole thing with purple power (not the screen) to make it look new again :o

    Can't remember where I got the school desk, but I painted the legs black and it doesn't look so bad. Was thinking of putting my 20" crt on there but there just isn't enough room on the desk :/

    Those are a few of the games, I have Lords of the Realm II but I hate that fucking game.

    I'll look into everyone's suggestions, thanks for those :cool:

    oh yeah, I just remembered Murder Death Kill (MDK)

    Probably need to get both of those

    Carmageddon looks pretty cool, I vaguely remember it

    I don't need Unreal Tournament/Quake games. The single player stories are crap and I could never get very far on the first Unreal before getting very very lost. :/ Also this comp won't be hooked up to the internet so multiplayer games aren't really considered.
