• magisterrex Retro Games


    I've been gaming since the days of Pong and still own a working Atari 2600. I tend to ramble on about retro games, whether they be board games, video games or PC games. Sometimes I digress. Decades after earning it, I'm finally putting the skills I learned while completing my history degree from the University of Victoria to good use. Or so I think. If you're into classic old school gaming, this blog is for you!

  1. […] To explain: older games used to prevent copying by having special codes in the manual which you had to enter on load. To avoid being defeated by photocopies, they were often printed in yellow-on-white or black-on-black, and/or spread throughout the manual so you’d have to copy the whole manual. I did google on my phone, but at the time I couldn’t find the relevant info (now found, for the curious). […]

  2. Thanks so much for this!

  3. magisterrex you rock!!! It took me an hour to find these much needed codes in amongst sites with cheat codes and cracks for all the newer simcity games. If only i had have remembered to look for the high scores sheet LOL.

  4. I love you! I am now playing simcity on dosbox on my mac. Thanks for the nostalgia!
