    Well you didn't really try to crash the system, that's where ME hit the fan. I was a tech-kid back then, running around the neighborhood doing maintenances, and while ME in my home computer worked fine (althought I reverted to 98 eventually mostly for MS-DOS mode), damn windows ME drove me crazy. For some users it would crash over and over, even microsoft took note of that: ME had the only built-in registry repair tool I've seen in a windows version lol. I could never tell for sure the root of all those crashes i fixed, but i suspect a simple hard shutdown, like a power outage, was enough to keep ME from booting. Maybe you could try to emulate that yourself ;)

    This Game (together with Bio Menace) had probably an Influence in Duke 3d. Duke has blendet with the other two heroes. *Harry introduced the concept of women trapped in goo and the body horror done to them. Harry is however more of a gentleman. *Harry made the Jetpack cool. *Harry is clearly on Steroids. *Bio Menace put the setting into a realisitic setting and added extreme violence, to make the horror more edgy. The same concept was later used by Duke 3d (and Half Life). In fact you could say Bio Menace is to Duke (or Harry ) that Half Life is to Doom.

    A late comment -- I could add a few more, including one that I built myself from a kit by Giarcia's Circuit Cellar. It used a Hitachi CPU, 80180 and ZCPR operating system. A friend of mine had an Osborne portable. And just when the IBM PC was on its first incarnation, there were HP-85 and HP-87. I bought the '87 that had a wide screen display with text or bit graphics. The operating system was HP's own Basic (Amigo, I think). The floppy disk and printer interface were through HP-IB that was later standardized as IEEE-488 instrument control interface. One of the odd things was its memory stack, which could be optionally chained to 64 bits width. By the way, in the 1970's there were "development systems" to build programs and even burn EPROMS. One that I saw had a word processing program (loaded from an 8" floppy disk) and a compiler for Motorola 6800, 6801 and 6803 chips. A bit later Motorola came out its own development system, VME/10 that was a 32/16 bit unit for programming their 68,000 series chips.

    I totally remember the disappointment of PU. I eventually forced myself to grind through and unlock the cars, leaned how to do the e-brake 360s, and honestly it became worth it when I finally got the GT2. HOLY SHIT that car was nuts! Almost made up for it eliminating every other car. Underground was pretty fun. Loved the drag mode, but NFS3 was always king.

    My dad has a window and door fitter company and a few years ago, they subscribed a special program for about 100 € per month from a large window and door manufacturer. During the installation I saw a hint like "use WinRAR if this doesn't work, it's included on the CD-ROM". I thought "no way, they really put a shareware on this CD-ROM?". In fact: They didn't. On the CD-ROM was a goddamn old WinRAR version from 2002 including their site license file! I extracted this license file and it's still working with the most recent versions of WinRAR.

    Being a musician, you'll get this. How crazy is it that most of the Korg Volca series STILL uses audio like the cassette drive to transfer data. I'm specifically talking about the Volca Sample here, original. (The one I bought, and love) LOL eh? .. THEN they got smart and made the Mark 2 with USB .. considering selling this one and buying that one. But then, I'm running the Pajen custom firmware, and IDT the Mark 2 has all the functions Pajen put in there. Or perhaps he's done a custom firmware for the Mk 2 now. I haven't checked. hmmmm

    Hey people, I'm trying to remember a game, with digitize human characters, similar to this game. Your character, in jail, (I believe framed for some crime) he punches out a guard, gets the keys, then escapes the cell. The you go up and down (by stairs/ladders..looks a bit like Donkey Kong) and the guards chase you! If you punch a guard, you can steal their gun, and shoot back. Does anyone know this game?

    Man, my Win 95 PC I just remember playing NFS2, NHL 97, Command & Conquer and Starcraft. Those games... NFS2 was definitely my favorite... played it so much, often with my dad too with him on the steering wheel and pedals and I'd take the keyboard. Good times!
