Multiplayer games:

Filenames of multiplayer games start with a number that indicates the # of supported players.
So, "8Cubes.zip" supports 8 players.

Most of the multiplayer games are "Huddle around one keyboard".
There's a couple marked "online multiplayer".

Technical Support

Click there  ^  if a game doesn't work.

Most of these games are pretty old.
Some won't work right out of the box on your fancy computer.
It's not my fault.

Excellent 3d pool from Sierra.

You'll foul if you hit your opponent's ball before hitting one of yours.

Since I installed this in xp, if I use the cue stick on the table, the game hangs.
I have to use the stick that appears at screen right.

NES online multiplayer:

I think NES games support online multiplayer.
...prolly need highspeed internet for this.

1. After a NES game starts, go File > Netplay.
2. One player selects Server (1P) and the other player selects Client (2P).
3. The client player has to enter the server player's Console Classix username.

NES multiplayer games:

Dr. Mario
Joust
Marble Madness
Mario Brothers
Micro Machines

(Rival Ball does the same on EASY setting).

All the DX-Ball boards are included in 4RivalBallreplaceBoards.zip using differnet blocks.

Press CTRL+F1 at main menu to access the board editor. If you want to keep the original boards when editing,... ************************************
Go to your DX-Ball folder and create a folder named theme boards.(for each new set of boards you make, make another folder) Find the files default.bds and score.dat. Put them in the Theme Boards folder. When you open up the level editor, you'll find blank boards ready for your use. DX-Ball automatically creates another default.bds and score.dat. When you want to go back to the original boards, go to the DX-Ball folder, put the theme board and score files in the Theme Boards folder, and take the regular ones out. Don't rename the theme board and score files unless you want to mess it up.

3. Create another 800 by 600 image. save this as test-mask.png in the same folder. This image is the play area. Make sure there is plenty of black (RGB 0,0,0) in the image, as this is where the fleas can move around.

Supports online multiplayer.

While playing:

F4 = full screen or not
V = change camera view
D = dashboard or not

TAB = Cycle through Map > Map with names > No map > Etc... Helpful when you get lost.

F = Finder... This is a compass to direct you to the next checkpoint (You have to go through five checkpoints in order per lap). It's fun to follow the finder instead of the road.

The graphics options (Options > Graphics) made a big difference on my old computer.
Full Screen is faster (Select Automatic Full Screen).

4RivalBallreplaceBoards.zip
179 KB

Rival Ball only allows you to play four boards per game. 4RivalBallreplaceBoards.zip contains more boards and different blocks.
"Installing": 1. Delete everything in your Rival Ball \ Boards folder. There are a few of the original .img files that you have to keep to use with the new boards, but I copied them to 4RivalBallreplaceBoards.zip so you don't have to remember what to delete and what to keep.

This deletes the boards that come with Rival Ball. If you want to keep them, skip step 1.

2. Unzip 4RivalBallreplaceBoards.zip to Rival Ball \ Boards.
