GEM Games

Postby emcclariion » Wed Sep 13, 2017 9:31 am

I have been messing around with my MSTE with a Graphics card.

I have been wanting to play some games at high res, but I cannot seem to find any for download

here is a link to the games, but cannot find any HD compatible ones.

does anyone have SIM City working from HD, would love to see if it works at 1024x768 at 16 colours?

thanks

Alas, it won't. I'd love to play that in 800 x 600 on my Falcons.

Don't go hurting your eyes on this anyhow, the graphical elements will get pretty small. ;)

GEM games usually work at a fixed resolution i.e. the graphics don't scale up. Only some games offer bigger alternative tiles.

Asteroids should scale up (vector graphics) and GEM Elite TNK was quite impressive.

I've just spent ages crawling the net trying to find this GEM Elite TNK without any luck, hopefully someone on the forum has it backed up

GEM window and dialog are used in Sim City for ST, but this game is not enough GEM compliant.

Curious, my 2048 port is located in this base, but not listed in this page, though GEM compatible and running on from ST to FireBee.
