Thanks @drummer_god much appreciated. Is there any information on what type of base PC is required? Compatible motherboard, sound and videocards? Any further info would be greatly appreciated.

IDE CD Rom drive
IDE hard drive
Pentium 4 processor
1 GB Ram or more
Geforce 6600-9600 video card.

The installation discs won’t work on a sata CD Rom or hard drive
But once installed onto an IDE hard drive, you can then clone it to a sata hard drive.

Hey fellas, long time since I've been on and thanks for keeping this alive!  Bad news, my DFI mobo finally crapped the bed and I've searched the internet with no luck of finding a replacement.  It was a NB32-SL.  Bunch of blown caps and a blown power supply. After reading a bunch of the threads, I see I could upgrade to a Dell Optiplex 240 tower.  So I have 2 questions...  1.  I tried taking my existing HD and putting it into an older Compaq Presario I had and here's the odd thing.  It started to boot normally and then I got an error about a SIS file missing from the c:Windows/i386 folder and it said to load the CDROM for Win XP Pro?  I didn't do anything other than take the existing drive and plug it into the Compaq to see if it would happen to boot. Why would the error message say Win XP Pro when we all know it had Win XPe on it?  2.  If I buy a Dell OptiPlex tower, I should be able to take the existing hard drive, Video card and I/o board and basically plug and play correct?  I know I'll probably need to load a few drivers for those cards but I saw that Ed stated he ran into an issue when he tried the Dell tower and was talking with Paul Stevens to try and rectify but he never finished that thread on what he did to fix this?  I'm stuck without my game and am looking for the best option to get back up and running.  Can anyone help?

Dell gx280 or gx260 are the popular optiplexes to use. A DFI computer uses AGP videocards and the optiplex uses PCI-e videocards, so you’ll need a geforce 6600-9600 that is PCI-e ( luckily they’re very cheap on eBay ).

If you can use your IDE harddrive in a dell ( which may only have sata ), you will need to install ethernet, sound and videocard drivers ( available on dell’s Website ).

Another option is to buy the everlast computer ( which was the global VR-provided upgrade to their games that originally had DFI computers ), and currently available on eBay. The everlast is a very easy transition as you can install your old harddrive or simply reinstall with the game discs if you have those.

Also, we are on Facebook these days so look for us there;

Answer the three screening questions and I’ll be sure to accept your request.

Thanks for the info @drummer_god.  I just checked ebay and couldn't find an Everlast PC, just some new notebook they came out with.  I'm gonna search for the OptiPlex GX models.  I found a GX240 for anywhere from $59.99 to $89.99, some with a hard drive and some without.  My HDD is good but I think it would be best to grab another one and try to clone it so I have a backup in case it craps out.  When are you normally online?  I'd like to chat with you about a couple things PGA related to make sure I can get my game back up and running.  Let me know what day/time you'll be on and I'll login.  I apologize, I'm not on facebook.  I'm kinda old-school, lol.  Plus it seems like nothing but drama on there with idiots I used to go to school with.  Thanks again and look forward to chatting soon.

I’d try and lowball this seller and if that doesn’t work, then pursue the dell.
You can always PM me and I’ll respond next time I check in here, or join Lee’s discord chat.


Is anyone here using the nickname ‘Jacrispy42’ for online play during tournaments?

Thanks for the invite.
I get way too many PGA related messages to my phone every day as it is. I don’t need to invite more. Lol
I totally see why you took a step back from the community for a while - my wife is always complaining about how much time I spend helping or chatting with the Facebook members  ;)

Thats the nice thing about discord though.  You can talk or not talk.  You engage or dont.  Set your alerts to only be @ mentions and you will rarely get bugged.  Think your wife would like it better if you left facecrook for a better platform.  My two cents.
