Ask RedWolf: Now Fielding Questions

December 12th, 2006 by Benj Edwards

Ask RedWolf LogoSoon after I started Vintage Computing and Gaming, I began to receive many unsolicited questions related to old computers or video games via email. I definitely don’t mind being asked, and I always try my best to help whomever is asking the question. Sometimes people describe an old video game and ask me what the name is, sometimes people want to know more about a certain computer they once used but can’t quite remember the model. Sometimes people just want to know some ideas for good multiplayer Atari 800 games.

With all these questions coming in, I figure, “Why not make it public?” so that my answers can benefit others who might be looking for similar information. I might not always know the answer, but with a little research, I typically know enough to pull together a good response. The oracle of infinite wisdom, I am not — but I will do my best to help.

Today, I am officially opening the “Ask RedWolf” email box for questions. Any question related to vintage computers or retrogaming will do. Question topics might include video game or computer history, my thoughts on an issue or topic, collecting tips, info on hardware, software, games, hacks, mods, emulators, people, accessories, or anything else you can think of that’s related to vintage computing and gaming.

I will choose two or three questions each week to answer and feature in the “Ask RedWolf” column on VC&G. Keep in mind that I might not be able to privately respond to every email you send — depending on how popular this becomes — but I will try my best. Also, VC&G readers will be able to supplement my answers in the comments of each Ask RedWolf entry. Let the questions begin!

Please use the special email address in the link below to ask questions for the Ask RedWolf column only.

    Thanks man, that’s cool of you! 🙂 I had a couple on the backburner, but I forgot what they were. As soon as I remember, I’ll shoot ’em over to you.

    To Redwolf,
    Hope this gets to you..I don’t like nor use microsoft messaging.
    I have been looking for a game of which I can’t recall the name…but the game starts out with you being at the bottom of a pymarid and through various trials you face you work your way up to the top of the pymarid. Once you manage to beat the various trials set before you in the dark pymarid..
    At the top is a space ship for which you needed fuel…you fuel up and fly off in your spaceship…Do you know the name or have you ever hard of it?
