Some of the Dos platform specific ones run alright in dosBox, although haven't really tried to actually play them too much, since still not really too accessible via windows7 and jaws, but, anyway.

Haven't really bothered too much, except some of them, like elite, sun tzu's ancient art of war, and the original hobbit interactive fiction game are things I remember from a hell of a long time ago - remember playing them when they first came out, on things like my old commodore 64, and my first ever PC - an old XT, with something like a 20Mb hard drive...<smile>

They are freeware games now the author has put them up for download so this
isn't piracy before anybody asks.

You can download a copy of both elite and elite plus from:
http://www.abandonia.com/

Here are the elite search results:
http://www.abandonia.com/en/search_abandonia/elite

However, don't think it's accessible at all, but anyway...:)
