Frontier: Elite II

Online version of Frontier: Elite II for PC DOS. Frontier: Elite II is a space trading and combat simulator designed by David Braben. It is the first sequel to the seminal game Elite from 1984. The game retains the same principal component, namely open-ended gameplay, and adds realistic physics and an accurately modeled galaxy. It was the first game to feature procedurally generated star systems. These were generated by the game aggregating the mass of material within an early solar system into planets and moons that obey the laws of physics.

IBM PC with MS-DOS

Online emulated version of Frontier: Elite II was originally developed for the IBM PC and compatible computers, with MS DOS - Microsoft Disk Operating System. It is an OS for x86-based personal computers mostly developed by Microsoft and released in 1981 as PC DOS 1.0.
MS-DOS was targeted at Intel 8086 processors running on computer hardware using floppy disks to store and access not only the operating system, but application software and user data as well. Progressive version releases delivered support for other mass storage media in ever greater sizes and formats, along with added feature support for newer processors and rapidly evolving computer architectures. Ultimately, it was the key product in Microsoft's development from a programming language company to a diverse software development firm, providing the company with essential revenue and marketing resources. It was also the underlying basic operating system on which early versions of Windows ran as a GUI.
