    I refuse to play games on an LCD. I only use CRTs or a 60" plasma if I need to go big

    I can't speak to whether or not it makes sense, but that's just the culture here. People post topics wherever. Oftentimes a for sale or WTB thread will transform into a full on discussion. Just how...

    would hooking INT 08H at the time of driver initialization with a handler be an appropriate way to time the motor shutdown?

    bear in mind this is my first foray into DOS programming of any kind so...

    I feel like the initial responses were unduly flippant. This guy has a lot to offer the forum regardless of whether or not it gets posted in some DOS-specific forum

    I'd support a DOS forum but the vintage software section is not solely for technical support, despite being categorized as such

    I feel like pcdosretro is trying to elevate the level of DOS specific software discussion here. Whether or not that necessitates a specific subforum I don't know, but I appreciate the effort.

    Keen is not one of those though. There were two versions of Keen4 - keen4e and keen4c. Different binary for the CGA version.

    Starting to awaken from the nightmare. A certain resident floppy disk expert here (you may know him from his eponymous XT-IDE mod) has handed me a powerful floppy disk I/O library and a nifty DOS...

    Yeah that's plenty, and your config files look good too.

    Must be something else stopping you from running the games, non memory related.

    I'd wager your problem is a lack of conventional memory. Adding more RAM won't fix that

    wait - so using XUB on a 5170 with IBM BIOS works fine if you just use a 16-bit IDE card instead of an XT-IDE adapter? if that's the case, I'd call it a non-issue. No good reason to be using 8-bit...

    I'm curious as to whether the XUB will happily coexist with a MFM drive being driven by the system BIOS, regular 5170 incompatibilities notwithstanding.

    Those 19" dell trinitrons are pretty valuable now. I'd suggest just taking the case off and soldering on a new cable. If you're not up to that you at least may be able to sell it as is to someone...

    I remember System Commander from back in the day, seems like everyone who was multibooting in the 90s used it

    start with the fundamentals - clean the ISA edge connector on the controller card and the data/control ones on the HDD, then try the LLF again

    Of course. I haven't started in on it yet because there's going to be a bit of learning curve, but rest assured if I get a working binary to build I will post it.

    Right so where I'm going with this is - if there was another FDC in the expansion chassis, it would need to be set to a different I/O port to avoid conflicting with the main system's one. But...

    so wait a second - was there an additional FDC in the 5161 on a different I/O port, or was there a DC-37 cable going from the main FDC to the expansion chassis in addition to the DC-62 cable from the...
