Holy Crow, I never thought I'd see Master of Magic mentioned again in my life. That brings back memories--this was one of my all-time favorite games, though even back in the day I had trouble getting it to run on even half the computers I had access to.

It had a lot of endearing quirks, too... that alien superhero guy was fun, and it was especially cool that your flying units didn't get infinite movement among ley lines (or whatever those glowing things were in the flipside world) like the much smarter ground-based units did.

I was very excited by this, until I found DOSBox doesn't support protected-mode DOS games (anything using DOS4GW.EXE). I've been able to use DOSEMU in linux to run some (not as) old SSI classics like the Eye of the Beholder series (and Dark Queen of Krynn), but there's no mouse support! Argh... I guess there's still the good old DOS boot disk solution for the truly hard-core ^_^

Eye of the Beholder! Aaaaaaaaaaah! :)

Actually the game is saved and can be loaded if you press the same slot (i believe)

But if you run the game in version 0.55
the right name appairs.....

Ah yes, many fond memories of Master of Magic. Or should I say mammories, since I would usually play the topless wizard so I could see her boobies.

too bad! My all-time-fav DOS game Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games doesn't run on it because Protected Mode isn't supported yet! Please hurry up with it will ya! :]

MoM is one of the best games I've ever played and is generally better than most of the crap they are pumping out these days (Enter the Matrix?)

Actually, I need some assistance/advice. I am trying (EMPHASIZE on TRYING)to re-create MoM or something similar but with updated graphics. I need a good game editor as I don't have the patience (any longer) to program games. I don't care if it costs $ or its a free project, but I do have a slight bias in favor of the open-source free project types (better quality/community).

So anyways, if any of you readers know a good game creation tool, suited for MoM (doesn't need multi-textured, super-stenciled, antiisotropoaliased superinsane crazy fuckshitdamn graphics) you know who to email.

Thnx.
