Towards the end of the year I always get a bit nostalgic. That’s when I go searching for old memories. And so I turned on and old DOS PC to check out an old backup I found that contained DOS games I wrote in the 90’s.
After dusting off my DOS machine of choice, a Pentium 166, it almost immediately died on me. Shortly after that I got contacted by a reader of my Dutch blog https://retrogamecouch.tweakblogs.net/. He wanted to donate two old computers. One of these was a 486DX2 running at 50Mhz. Perfect! Thank you very much Sjoerd! We were back in business.
And so I spent the afternoon checking out some of the DOS games I made in Turbo Pascal 7.
After recording this video I sniffed through the sourcecode of X-laser, to discover my first ever written easter egg/cheat. Check this out:
There is one more cheat in X-laser, so download it and check out the sourcecode for yourself!
