I don't honestly know where you can get the Heretic expansion. I don't know if they made a demo for it. The names of the two expansions I have are:
Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders
Hexen: Death Knights of the Dark Citadel
They all came on a CD called Towers of Darkness that I found rummaging through a bargain bin one day in college.
Playing around some more I realized I wasn't getting music (although sound worked fine), so I fiddled with my settings and chose "Adlib" for my Music device in Hexen and Heretic. Now I have music, in all its sythesized midi glory.
I just found some some floppy disks, many of which are pretty useless for me now but I did manage to find the entire 3 disk set of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons "Eye of the Beholder", and I managed to copy the 3 disks to my HD as I was afraid they'd be too old to read from. I'd love to play it but Wine says it's garbage. I couldn't find it listed on Dosbox, I'm gonna search for it on Dosemu next. I would love to play it if I could get it installed. Any Ideas folks?
and BTW, I'm a huge Duke3D fan. I have it installed now and play it regularly.
As far as the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons goes... all I can say is good luck getting it to play in Wine. Have you had any better luck trying it in qemu?
Never mind... I just completely read that post wrong
So I take it that you've tried to install D&D with no joy?
I haven't tried to install it personally, but several of my friends have given it a shot with no luck at all. Really, the only games I've got installed on my box are Diablo 2 and Starcraft. I have the feeling that there aren't too many games that will run on mine. It's just a 1 gig with 512 meg of RAM.

I use DOSBox, DOSEMU, AND an actual 486dx2, and stuffed to the gills with more freeware, abandonware, vaporware, and unknown-ware than any of my other OS's... a lot of the software is also very practical. I like FreeDOS, but kept IBM PC-DOS on my ancient beast in the interest of compatability with the box of old floppies from my university years that my folks sent me. I also put together a PC-DOS 6.1 boot CD, just for kicks. Bookmark my DOS page (SEARCH: 'DOS Programs Martin') for updated links to dos programs and links to archive sites.
