Reaperman Posted June 10, 2022 Share Posted June 10, 2022 (edited) I've been playing with MiSTer and I'm trying hard to love mac plus/se. It's been a couple nights now, and fun has been sparse. So far I've come across a mix of games where the most familiar ones generally look/play better on amiga/st/ibmpc --hell, even apple II gives it a real run from my memories (though it's been a while). What's good on early mac? I will say I found an excellent Star Wars game--kind of a mouse-based clone of the atari arcade game that plays to the display's strengths. It seems legitimately good at wireframe 3d. Nice. (it'd REALLY help if the only youtube vid I can find wasn't directly comparing it to the arcade, but it honestly is super-fun, I swear ) It seems like the games are generally keyboard/mouse driven, are there joysticks? Was this mainly a spreadsheet/word processor? What was it mainly used for? Specs are awesome, but it's not so great at 'usual mac things' like sound, photos, videos. Maybe drafting? and game-wise it seems to really lean into the system's mouse in a way other machines of the era didn't.
