    I like your interpretation of that game type.

    I wonder how well that would run on a Corona Data Systems PC? :)

    So they are both installed then. Personally, I would recommend just reformatting and starting over from scratch. When you copy the 95C cab files to the hard drive just delete the IE installer before...

    That is a very common problem with Windows 95. Sometimes updating drivers, and applying networking updates (DUN1.4) might make it go away.

    Can you use "exit to dos" rather than shut down?

    You...

    Most of the stuff on macgarden needs Apple Diskcopy 6.1.2. You may also have to run SIT and BIN archives through stuffit expander first.

    The thing is there is no real "standard" for mac images. A...

    I've also heard of people whitening plastic by soaking it in heated peroxide (no sunlight).

    There really needs to be some real science done on this. Anyone got a huge stockpile of yellowed...

    Interesting, I was just reading up on Helix the other day. Glancing at a 1986 copy of the application, if you open a database and there is data in a table, it looks like it will let you "dump" the...

    I don't know about vintage computer stuff, but I fully expect prices on consumer items, groceries, health insurance, and such, to double or even quadruple again in the next few years because of this...

    Yet it passes all Chinese certifications and approvals!

    Of course, it would be my weird luck that I would plug that in and it would somehow work fine, while another one that looks absolutely...

    If the card is intended to be used with a non-DOS accessible device, like a scanner, then the BIOS is not needed. In such a case, disabling BIOS reduces the probability of conflicts, and frees up...

    It sounds to me like this card just does not get along well with other drive systems. I've encountered that before with ISA SCSI cards.

    Hanging while detecting the drive may indicate that the...

    That seems to be a common limitation with flux-level disk readers.

    The preferred format for mixed FM-MFM stuff is usually ImageDisk .IMD format. On an IBM PC style floppy controller that supports...

    Does it not decode single density, or does it just have to do that in a separate pass?

    I've had zero luck with those mechanical solder suckers. On any modern-ish board you have to be The Flash to get that thing in place before the solder cools.

    But I'll have to bookmark that...

    Thanks for pointing that out. So using a dremel to remove the top and expose the built in battery is one option.

    Yea, that does look like the same motherboard.

    Uh, DOOM isn't copy protected. There are not "weak bits" as used in copy protection, you just have a damaged disk.

    Also, DOOM shareware versions should already be archived out there. Is there...

    It is probably because it is setting it as it would a CGA cursor. The setting has to do with the number of scan lines, but MDA has more scan lines, so the cursor winds up about in the middle. I've...
