Thread: Hi, I'm John and I just got a IBM 5155!

    Default Hi, I'm John and I just got a IBM 5155!

    Howdy Everyone.

    I found a IBM 5155 on craigslist over the weekend and brought it home to live with me.

    It's got dual floppies and 640k.

    I don't hear the heads moving when it attempts to boot so I reckon the rails need to be cleaned and lubed.

    I'm looking forward to pimping my XT out, I'd love to be able to play Civilization and Rail Road Tycoon on it and that's going to require a better video card than CGA.

    Back in the Late 80's or possibly early 90's my family had a Tandy 1000HX, My friends family had a PCjr and eventually what I think was an AT Clone and I have fond memories of playing Alley Cat, Bouncing Babies, Jones in the fast lane and more.

    Looks like Bouncing Babies, Alley Cat and Railroad Tycoon and Sim City all support CGA

    Jones in the Fast Lane needs better graphics than CGA to play:
    EGA, MCGA, Tandy / PCjr, VGA

    Civilization needs better graphics than CGA:
    EGA, MCGA, Tandy / PCjr, VGA

    I don't think there are ISA MCGA or Tandy graphics boards so I guess I need to be on the lookout for an EGA card that would fit in my 5155 and would still support the internal display?
