    Daggerfall just became freeware, so couldn't it be ported to the Wii, via Wiibrew, now?

    daggerfall...could that not be run via DOSBox? Or is it too recent?

    Anyway, just because a game is free doenst mean its portable. it must be open source. and someone must be commited enough to put in a lot of man hours to port it over. its not an easy job. its much more than download the source and compile under devkitpro.

    I see, thanks for the information.

    And yeah, it can be played under DOSBox, although I don't think the Wii version can run it.

    have you tried it? if not, go and do so now. you never know it may work. the source which told you it didnt could be wrong.

    Yeah, only trust yourself and nobody else [​IMG]
    I heard of so many things which shouldn't work, I tried them and they worked.
