    My OCD is saying those racks need cleaning badly. I mean look at the dust built up on those grills.

    I can even picture what the internals look like. That church must be one dusty place.

    Remember when people got sad when some ROM sites closed down? Well, guess where you can still find pretty much every ROM in existence... ;)

    Not sure how exactly the Internet Archive is able to dodge those DMCAs, but somehow it does. Or maybe the likes of Nintendo haven't gotten angry enough at them yet... We'll see.

    EDIT: For freaking out IT use Teamviewer and open the page on your rig at home. :D
    (Just joking. Depending on policy this may get you fired!)

    yah, I not complaining my only complaint is most the games I tried to play dont work, it like the dosbox is not configured right, or maybe it firefox and maybe it blocking cookies or something

    There alot games there I saw that I had and should still have if I find out where they all went. and if doxbox actual worked I could get some that nostalgia out my system.

    @tsunami231 It's just that they're not configured correctly on the site. For example the CD ISO is not mounted when they try and launch the game. They just threw this together without actually knowing exactly what they're doing.

    These games work just fine (and much better) when you run them locally in native DOSBox. And it's probably better to use something like DOSBox-ECE or DOSBox-X instead of vanilla DOSBox.

    Try searching for the title to see if it has more than 1 copy. A couple of games i tried playing didnt work but under another listing they would play without a problem.

    Glad to see this posted, but it's not really news. This feature has been part of their site for many years.
