Wizardy VII – Crusaders of the Dark Savant – Intro (Sir-Tech 1992)

 

Have a few retro intros and such coming for the channel in the short term. Still have some hardware issues that will prevent higher quality edits and long-term gameplay videos, so these will have to do for now.

Here is the Wizardry VII intro, running through DOSBox ECE SVN. Fullscreen at desktop resolution (1920×1080) with normal5x scaling and aspect ratio correction.

Future DOSBox intro will include MT-32 and/or High quality Soundfonts through General Midi. If you have an intro you’d like to see and hear (and I haven’t already covered it) let me know. I will experiment with shaders again, but for now the build I am using doesn’t work with them, so normal scaling at 5 or 6x will be my goto.
