True- I recall having to go do something else while the hordes of opponents went through their attack routines. If I recall correctly (and it has been... 30 years?) there could be 6-8 groups of enemies- cannot recall how large the groups could be. But in any event, large enough to allow me to wander off for 10-15 minutes at a time.

And it was also necessary to draw all the dungeons and towns on graph paper- there was no such thing as an "in-game" map.

Did any of the post-thirtysomething crew here play Elite or Frontier: Elite II back in the day?...&^%$-ing Brother and I were having a nostalgia trip for that, as there's a new one on the way...All huge and scary and ripe for exploits... biggrin.gif ...
ghastley
What do you mean: did we play Elite? I still have the floppy and the machine to play it on. If they didn't have the wrong voltage over here in the States, I'd plug it in and play a game.
McBadgere
Yeah...Did you play Elite? indeed...And its sequel...

I loved the sequel...Never played the original more than once though...

I spent soooo many hours on Frontier though...A bazillion...(*approx.)...

There was a messed up sequel to that one too...But now there's something new coming from that same team...Still huge, still trading etc...Looking forward to not being able to play it but watch it from afar... laugh.gif ...

ImperialSnob
Because the real deal is much slower and outdated.

mirocu
Its not slow huh.gif It runs the programs it can run and its never slow. And I wouldnt so much call it outdated as Id call it old school. Remember AVGN... wink.gif

Thread not moving? That there is what is known as entropy, in a closed system energy is finite and an object in motion while tending to stay in motion, deals with multiple variables that brings it to rest.
