    PocketDos

    thanks to darkdomino i downloaded & installed PocketDos - which is exactly what it sounds like, a Dos version for pocket devices incl. the Smartphone (http://www.everythingq.com/forum/software/time-for-another-round-of-favorite-apps-thread-10172-27.html#post247899)

    i ran it and well... it's Dos :}

    and i glanced at the screenshots.. and yes sir, it shows PocketDos running "Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards".. om my this is pretty sweet...

    *off to find a copy of Larry I, i know i have it at home but that's not helping me since i am at work :}*

    (1 minor detail, yet slightly annoying) every so often PocketDos jumps back to the nag screen.. after that it returns to where you were but still..)

    I found their site but found only forums but no way to directly get in contact with anyone. Weird. Maybe find what is bothering you & solution on the forums? Endless reading from the looks of it.

    from past experience the rules of conduct are:
    1. ask the same question in multiple threads as possible.
    2. after 5 min's start yelling & cussing every-fckin-body b\c no one is helping u.
    3. after about 10 to 15 min's start cussing the mods b\c no one has helped u yet.
    4. in about 20 min's cuss & yell about the mods, the ppl & post mean nasty pictures reflecting ure hate about everything & everybody.
    see? easy!!! hahahahaha!!!

    Got it installed here. been trying out a couple older games, and once you figure out the controlls it is pretty easy to use.

    I found a site with tons of abandonware dos games, when I get to my computer I'll post a link.
