    Default Shadowgate for the PC?

    A while back (about 1993 lol) I saw that Shadowgate (the NES game) was ported to the PC, in a Windows-based program.

    Well, did anyone ever get it? Anyone know where I can get a copy? I'd love to play it!!

    Shadowgate was on DOS PC before the NES port but the version I believe you're talking about is for Windows 3.1. I don't know where to find it though or how you get 3.1 games to run on modern PCs.

    No, the DOS version is older. The Windows 3.1 game you probably saw is a remake.

    If you want to play old DOS games you can use a DOS emulator called DOSbox.

    http://dosbox.sourceforge.net

    I've only tried it for the DOS based music tracker Fast Tracker 2. Too bad it sux for it, a 0.1 sec delay on the sound Yes, this have much to say when you track. Its like watching a movie thats out of sync.

    DOSbox should be ok to play games with i guess

    The DOS and Windows version of the game are on #oldgames (IRC room) on EFNet (IRC server), both are small files.

    just go to www.the-underdogs.org to download the game, be warned though, the site is usually trustworthy but i recently got an unwanted download from them, you should use firefox to visit the site

    You meant to say that you should use JavaCool's Spyware Blaster and Kolla's SpyBot Search & Destroy before visiting the site
