    I tried Sim Tower. Pretty slow on my Raspberry Pi 4, but I imagine js-dos (Dosbox running in a web browser) might be playable on other systems. It might need manual configuration to raise the cycles. That looks like a pirate/illicit site, so I'm not sure if you're allowed to post that here. Then again, Internet Archive has a similar abandonware collection that uses js-dos: https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_msdos_games

  4. I respec your opinion, but if you are doing true Efficient Leveling, or even semi-efficient leveling, you are limiting what your character can do, at least at the beginning of the game. For example, putting Athletics as a major skill and then accidentally leveling it at the wrong time by running too much. Or getting hit in combat a bunch of times and getting that accidental increase in an Armor skill. Having initial major skill values too high also limits level ups. It seems that the non-cheat fix for this is to go to Jail a lot to decrease skill values or "increase" Security/Sneak

Even with crappy combat, exploits, silt striders, etc. the alien fantasy atmosphere of the game holds up well. Some of the features that seemed great at the time, like custom spells, are not as ground-breaking as claimed. Those are better for goofing off (shooting everybody at once with a 50 ft radius fireball or casting levitation on others). Levitating 100 pts endlessly in the game is fun (no exploit required, just 5 gold at the temple!) but a little annoying due to the loading zones, I guess that's be

    This is the worst time in years to buy any new hardware. Maybe check things out in late 2022 or 2023 if you are fine with what you have. Around that time the multi-chip module (chiplet) GPUs will be shaking things up and raytracing performance will be much better.

  12. It's for Compute Module 4. CM4 will go into a lot of things, including handhelds. It would be nice to see boards like this with more powerful ARM chips, or RISC-V.
