An old game Battlepets Avalar

It could be hard finding a legit version. The developer 'Agressive Game Designs' company site is archived, but the full version was purchased through a 3rd party company which is also gone. https://web.archive.org/web/20031015132748/http://www.aggressive.to:80/ Checking the developers on Mobygames g...

mid 90's to early 2000 adventure 2d platform game boy saves girl

Not sure, but there is this game: Jumpin' Jack - it might be too recent though? (There was a screenshot of the main guy jumping on a trampoline, but he wears a cap, no hair visible.) Otherwise look at this list of shareware Windows games: https://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/windows/platform/tic,1...

Fly ship, collect ship parts

There is a series of 'Cresta' games, none for DOS or PC, but the OP did not mention the platform, if it is indeed the game the OP searched for; it was quite some years ago when this was originally asked, so the OP might not see these replies anyway. Cresta series There is also a later game titled 'T...

Fujitsu LIFEBOOK C1020 - Compatibility with Sound Blaster Pro

If it's possible to disable the broken internal dvd & floppy in bios, attaching an external dvd or floppy on USB could work to boot on, it kind of depends on how hardcoded the boot code is. (I looked at a spare (broken gfx) Fujitsu Amilo machine I have, but as it's not the same model, there is n...

Tank game, late 1980s or early 1990s, Fired Red Discs [Nova 9]

Good you found it; I'm not sure that it was a direct sequel; even if both were made by Dynamix, there is no mention of the Draxon/Stellar 7 stories which are in the same game group as Nova 9. Still similar gameplay I guess, so it could be they kept improving on the A.F. and adding a more fleshed out...

Switchable characters/futuristic/RC robot

Hmm...I hesitate to mention it, but there is a Buzz Lightyear action game with such characters:

Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue!

Buzz is in white armor, The sheperdess/farmgirl is the woman, and there is an RC toy to drive according to the ad blurb.

Somehow I doubt that this is your game?

Investigation on subway; dead woman handcuffed

Hmm...I seem to recall one of Yahtzee's old horror games had a burning hotel, but not sure about the subway station; it is much earlier though, made in AGS and with simple 2D graphics.

[Solved] Point and click mistery game of a man who had amnesia. Played on a 100+ games CD

Ok, good you found it; the title is "That Night Before" (you wrote a different title at the top) and it's a free Flash game from 2001; I haven't found a downloadable version, even though one site claimed to have it, it was a dead link.

I don't own this game, and I don't know what your SM211.exe is - some unofficial patch? The latest version of the official patch for the game I've seen is v2.1 which is both available separately as SWUPG.ZIP, or included in the campaign/mission addon disks. edit: I noted a Vogons thread about the SW...

Getting Joysticks to work

Looking at the saved config file for the game, there does not seem to be much in it, so possibly the calibration data is only kept in memory, which may be why it needs recreating that each launch. TSR is a 'Terminate and Stay Resident' program; sometimes used for cheats but you have to first find th...

Getting Joysticks to work

As far as I know there is no skipping of the joystick calibration; I do it every time I launch the X-Wing/B-Wing/Imperial Pursuit etc games.

Good that you found it; here is the obligatory Mobygames link: Platypus

(yes, a yellow plane shooting white dots, not the reverse, thus the memory plays tricks sometimes)

Multiplayer split screen top view maze collect weapons fight mid 90s

Was it indoors 1vs1 player character only, or did you have any vehicles/outdoors areas like in Fire Power ? There is also Liero and Liero Xtreme - some of which looks like inside areas in the screenshots. It's both top-down and side-view, but I'm unsure if there is a fog-of-war/darkness mode away fr...

What platform did you play it on? I guess a PC since you mention a keyboard, but was it DOS, Win3.x, Win9x or other?

If you played it on an FM Towns, it might be Last Survivor?
