Spyglass Guides site used to offer help for installing and running old games on new OSs (tips on hyperthreading, DOSBox, ScummVM…) but nowadays their link leads only to some porn (!?).
Do you know what happened to SG?

If I remember correctly, they closed down quite a while ago (2 yrs. or so?).  I think it was a big undertaking with only a few people doing the work.

     

Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

Thanks for the info, Lady K. I was just beginning to think that SG was only my hallucination.

Here’s an archived version from the Wayback machine, you can see some of the old content this way: https://web.archive.org/web/20110210220846/http://spyglassguides.com/

Ah, it has been a lot longer than I remembered.  It looks like their last update was in February of 2009.

You’re right. None of the games in the archive from fov’s link seem to work, at least the ten or so I tried. The archives aren’t archived in the archive.  Cry
