Hi Charles,
I am sure Shades Of Doom was a windows game from the beginning.
David's Lone Wolf and Star Trek 2000 started as DOS games.
SOD came in 5 parts as no one back then had high speed downloads and he wanted the dial up download to not last all day.
smiles,
Phil

As I recall, SOD was comprised of 4 files that you installed in sequence.
Also, was it a DOS game?, or was that Lone Wolf's first version.

Hi Jim,
Oh, yeah. i remember that. Shades of Doom was really the first fully
accessible First Person Shooter for the blind. I was quite impressed
when it came onto the seen, and the fact he let us test the Alpha
version of the game. Up until then all I could find is card and puzzle
games, text adventures, which were not the kinds of games I normally
played before I lost my sight. Anway, I joined the GMA list primarily
because David Greenwood was more open with what he was doing than some
of the others who were making games then.

Hi Yohandy,

It didn't used to be this way.  I blame it all on David Greenwood.
<grin>  Back when it was PCS Games and me, we would put out games and
people would play and comment on them.  But then in 1999 - 2000 David
Greenwood was working on the first accessable first person shooter
game.  He asked on list for suggestions and comments.  It became a
group effert.  Every since then it is like all accessible games are
group efferts.  Not that it is all bad, I mean I have added lots of
features and tweeks to my games from the suggestions of others.  Oh
yeah that game by the way was Shades of Doom.

BFN
