Ha! That is exactly what happened to our switch :)

Was the switch grey in color?

Pretty sure it was a dark beige. The rest of the case was a lighter shade, even when new. That colour sure did go out of fashion. I wonder how long until it's "retro" enough to be cool again...

No, we haven't had old enough computer sine the '90s, I think. And I wouldn't bother anyway since DOS-Box serves well so I can do all the gaming and everything on one computer. :)

But I do see why others might prefer the original.

I tried it on a pc without external speakers once. Hearing PC sounds coming from inside the PC is the true keen experience.

How do you do that? (If it was a newer computer and DOS-Box?)
