In about half an hour it's celebration stream time. Here is a list of some of my childhood games that I have prepared (in some fashion):
PIPE DREAM, DOSDORF, JILL, WACKY WHEELS, MOO, TOONSTRUCK, BROKEN SWORD, DUKE NUKEM 3D, ABE'S ODDYSEE, KKND 2, OUTCAST, ANNO 1602, NOX, MM6
I guess I'll start at the top and see where we end up. See you in half an hour!
Just so you know what you are missing out on: a fun fighting game with cute animals that can transform into badass robots.
About time I announce this all proper-like: tomorrow afternoon I'm going to celebrate that 200 people follow me on Twitch with a stream full of retro games.
I had a couple rather obscure ones in mind, but it turns out some of them are really hard to get to work, so there'll be a few reasonably known ones as well. Anyway, get ready for some DOS goodness.
Tomorrow, Sunday, afternoon-ish, CEST. OK, let's say 2 pm UTC -ish. It's going to be longer anyway.
@jookia As resident DOS expert, I'm trying a DOS game from 1991 and get a wrong number format.
Rather than 100000 the game shows me 99999.9999 999 998
It's supposed to be currency and the game is German, so it could be a locale issue of sorts as well, as in German the comma rather than the dot is used to delimit the fractional part and vice-versa for the thousands delimiter.
Can you tell me what's wrong or how to work around the issue?
I'm using DOSBOX 0.74.

#Startpage appears to have sold out to a company called "System1" who are a "pay-per-click behavioral ad company"
Please boost for exposure.
Sorry for the mess, there were Twitch issues and on top of that a bunch of issues with Duskers itself as well. So here is what I found:
1) Launch with force-opengl to have it render properly.
2) Set Vsync to Every Other Frame to get a stable 30 FPS through OBS.
3) Disable Noise to greatly decreases CPU required for encoding (to about 1/4)
