  No, but is that any better than PC Atari and Stella? I would use Stella
  but it is a DOS emulator (no Windows GUI).

Not true, I bought it and Gaunlet is a 4 player game, there are also a few 3
player games like rampage.
the rest are either 1 or 2.

If you had the 4-joystick adaptor, you could play Gauntlet II with 4
players on the ST. AFAIR.

It's faster, and since I top-posted, there's no harm done.  You see, you
read my post on top and don't read all the stuff below.  Are you really
claiming that you read to the bottom???  (Yes, I know he plonked me).

Learn to use usenet, Gareth (don't just blindly depend on the "rules" that
others have given you).  Oh, in case you're reading this in someone else's
reply, PLONK.

Well, you're OK anyway as you saved a second in your hectic and vastly
more important life.

And if everyone did the same, those people on modems will spend longer
downloading it, the server storage requirements will go up etc. Happily
most other people are more considerate.

> Learn to use usenet, Gareth (don't just blindly depend on the "rules"

I've only been using it 14 years so what the hell do I know.

Bottom line is you were wrong to do what you did and no amount of
posturing will change that.

You know, it's one thing to top-post, breaking one of the more articulate
and 'loose' of Usenetituette's terms, the rules are there for ease of use by
others; a common courtesy if you will.  That said, trying to be a rebel by
flaunting that particular courtesy makes you look less like a rebel and more
like a....choad, really.

Why does console games discussion get cross-posted into
comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.strategic? Anyone who wants to play Gauntlet or
Gauntlet 2 on a PC platform has long since running it in an emulator.
Such news are completely pointless to this ng.

On 16 Nov 2003 16:53:08 -0800, mike_norths_to@hotmail.com (Mike
North's Toupe) enlightened us by scribbling this gem of wisdom:

Gauntlet II came out in 1986, not 1988.  I actually played it at Time
Out (In Cerritos Mall) around 1987 ....

It would be nice to see Gauntlet II released, as well as an enhanced
version with more / faster monsters, different mazes, etc.

in Counter-Strike it is "Kicked by console"
