Something to pass the timeFollow

Firstly this has nothing to do with FFXIV other than a free method to pass the time if you're in between MMO's.

Any way I was looking for an old MMO I played back in the early 90's and stumbled across a site that brought the entire community back on-line. So in a sense here's 3 free (but by free I mean 100% free, you couldn't buy anything if you wanted to) MMORPGs.

I never played the Ruins of Crawdor, but Shadows of Yserbius and Fates of Twinion are both fun romps in their own rights. The server can handle about 60 people at a time and I believe you can have a party of 6. Also in INN (ImagiNation Network, wiki it if you like) there are a few other free games as well. Boogers is an excellent Reversi type game.

Here's the link
Ok never mind it won't let me link the source site, any way search Google for innrevivial

For DOSBox I prefer
http://members.quicknet.nl/blankendaalr/dbgl/ version .65 and then click whatever OS you're using, it comes with DOSBox already configured you just need to follow the instructions on the first link.

Any way I hope this isn't violating any rules here since it's free and a community opensource type project. It's killed a few hours of my time already and maybe it's just the nostalgia, but even semi-empty the experiance is just as rewarding. Beware though, it's not easy, and even though there is a cheat program out there... it's much more fun if you don't use it.

*EDIT* I found a much more user friendly link, note that it does come with multiple cheats for the game, please don't use them your first time through.

with all due respect, if this has nothing to do with FFXIV, then why did you decide it would belong or be welcomed in the FFXIV forum?

just sayin...

For those, who may be like myself. Those inbetween MMOs and looking for something to bide their time with while waiting for XIV to come out. I couldn't get back into XI right now if I wanted to, my internet connection at my deployed location couldn't support it. And the only other MMOs I'm looking forward to all have an approximate release date around the same time people are speculating this will come out.

So I posted something free, a place where people could go and adventure through 3 free MMOs that have been fully beta tested since 1991-1995 with a fairly decent story and some minor mindless hack and or slashing. And there's not an abundance of the "types" that are rumored to congregate in the free-to-play-but-if-you-want-to-be-uber-you-have-to-buy-stuff games.

You're probly right Toorima, I just thought I would specifically point this community out to those interested in XIV. Because the other forums have people in them who are currently playing MMOs. And if this should be in the OoT then my appologies to the mod who has to move it, sorry to waste their time and such. Honestly thought 99% of the threads in this forum should be moved elsewhere except for the news links and such, because more or less this game doesn't exist as more than a thought as far as we're concerned.

the difference being, that the other threads in this forum are actually related to XIV in some way or form, whereas this has absolutely nothing to do with it. just because this is what you may be doing while you wait for XIV, doesn't mean it has a place amoungst threads that are actually about XIV, whether XIV exists as more than "a thought" or not.

not tryin to come off like a **** or anything, so my apologies if i am.
