Fujitsu LIFEBOOK C1020 - Compatibility with Sound Blaster Pro

Xses wrote: It has (even 2.0) but it can't boot from USB "it can only boot from HDD, DVD and floppy".
I thought you were able to boot it?

So is the problem in being unable to boot, or unable to read CDs/DVDs/floppies?

Enjoyment of old games

I tried to get it for PC, I got it installed but couldn't get it loaded and play You might want to make a topic in the Get Games to Work section and describe your problem in detail. Windows 10 does have issues with legacy compatibility, assuming you have Windows 10 that is. Sometimes it's really ea...

Any way to attach an external drive (floppy or CD) to the laptop? Does it have USB ports?

Maybe Rowan Software's Air Power? But that would be a straight out flight sim.

Realtime strategy game - Clowns, mechs and holy knights, late 90s to early 2000s (not too sure)

There's a different StarCraft-esque South Korean RTS with a historical/fantasy theme called Dawn of Empire.

DOS puzzle game about a girl on a ladder

Nice! Apparently Flipull is the title used for the NES version of the original Plotting.

Quite possibly, the OP was indeed looking for Flying Pictures from the Russian 6 Pack.

DOS puzzle game about a girl on a ladder

Alrighty, I decided to Google some keywords, and I think I got a lead from a Russian website. Apparently the game you're looking for might be a Plotting variant . The MobyGames list only has one DOS title in this group called Throwland from Spanish company Digital Dreams Multimedia. But the Russian ...

Getting Joysticks to work

A long time ago I asked a similar question to DOSBox devs at VOGONS, but it looks like there is no universal answer to that, and in some cases you can only get the "correct" values by trial and error. That said, I found this DOSBox Wiki page rather helpful. In fact, I use the approximate v...

Getting Joysticks to work

JIC, please note that on a modern host CPU, DOSBox likely cranks out way more cycles at the max setting than X-Wing requires, which in turn might result in incorrect game behaviour.

Maybe someone can figure out how to hack the EXE to skip calibration? Or make a TSR that skips it for you?

Some kind of breakout clone

Basically the game was a ball bouncing from the bottom of screen to top. I controlled a log/landing pad that the ball had to land on and if I didn't catch it, I lost. There'd be things that fell from the sky that if I caught it on my 'log' then it'd make the ball bounce faster or slower. Or it coul...
