    Something's afoot in the gaming industry. Today I was browsing through the new releases on Gog and came upon 'Fantasy General II', DRM free. This is a fairly new game and goes for what most games of...

    Wasn't Castle Wolfenstein originally an Apple II game? Also, it saw many ports to the likes of Amiga, DOS, and Commodore? If one doesn't have an original disk, copy, or the proper one for your...

    I don't see a way to 'edit' the post - it'll have to re-list it at some point.

    There is a small error in the MAINMENU.BAT. Delete 'debug' (2nd entry) as it's a batch file and not compiled.

    Back in the day the Optiplex GX1 was almost a standard around the office spaces, however I don't recall it ever supporting USB in its original configuration. In that USB was fairly new in the late...

    That's cool and I like Direct Access too, but this is a learning experience and it's a lot of fun to do if you're just getting into this old DOS PC thing. No frills or extras, but you'll gain a...

    Links to Tiny-Menu are no good. So, what's 3.5 KB? I been using this menu for 30 years or so on various DOS setups. I don't think I've ever run out of memory or disk space on any of my old DOS PC's....

    Make your DOS menu system

    Below are all the ingredients for a simple, precious memory sipping, DOS menu program for the purist. Kudos to Van Wolverton.

    The following is a list of all the doc's, .com's, and .bat's that are...

    You didn't give the specs for your CF. Try this on the CF:

    1) boot with a system floppy
    2) FDISK /MBR
    3) FORMAT X /S (where x is your HD)

    Question: Does the system see the CF when you boot...

    Check the mounting standoffs on case itself and ensure that there is sufficient clearance between the case and the bottom side of your mobo. Look for something on the case that may tend short out...

    PCIe to PCI Adapter

    The PCIe to PCI host adapter is now here as well as the SATA 3 adapter. As summer is winding down, hopefully I can find some time for the A7. I will be attempting to install...

    The laptop was just a tool early on. Word processing was more or less done on desktops and dedicated word processors. Back in the 80' & 90's I used an ancient HP portable, that weighed in at around 9...

    The Cyrix 386 FPU has a small executable to enable/disable its cache. Don't know about the Cyrix CPU.

    I just installed a version of Wing Commander 4 from Gog ($1.49). Runs off the HD and no video/audio problems.

    Isn't that ISO thing more of a hassle then just slipping the CD in? All of the games that I have that require the CD have a crack in place - no CD's. It sometimes takes a little effort to ferret out...

    You're a purist. I would venture to say that most gamers, like me, are content to play a game that isn't hacked to Hades and back along with decent pubs. I have no interest in collecting boxes. Don't...

    If you're a collector you may have a point, but I buy off of Gog just to play. I play alone and I like shooters. I find the likes of Gog handy and reasonable. Although I have a few Steam games that...

    We differ on modern. All of what you described above can be managed and done so legally; Gog for instance.

    Joe,

    Keep in mind that single layer DVD's are 4.7 GB max while dual layer DVD's are 9.4 GB max; this may be where your problem lies. BTW, I never had to fool with the country codes and I would...

    A DVD is a DVD. I questioned whether or not it is truly a DVD device. With older hardware it's easy to assume that it is. As I stated before, I ran into that problem previously and documented same....
