Re: Running BAT from autoexec.bat

in DOS
CALL that Bat, is easy to remember. Yes, it's the CALL command to run an external BATCH file and returns back to the caller. ---***--- call liveinit.bat ---***--- Or you can also "pass" the responsibility to the liveinit.bat file, by placing the "call liveinit.bat" statement at the end of the …

Re: Crusader No Remorse - Black screen in DOS, will NOT boot!

in DOS
Crusader engine is quite picky. Try not to do anything "overkill" for this series. Stay as old as possible when it comes to hardware. What soundcard are you using? Try running without sound. I once had problem with Crusader No Regret and a 440BX mobo with 256MB RAM. Limiting the available memory by …

Re: Running DOS on modern hardware is impossible

in DOS
twiz11 , Maybe you should do your research before starting threads with misleading and obviously wrong titles. Tip: if you want to use the thread itself for a discussion where you would learn such things, it is better to phrase the title as a question rather than a rather bold statement. ;) Agree …

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

in Milliways
Honestly saying, I liked the older design...maybe because I got used to it for the past 15 years. But I also feel this new design is also good. I tried reverting back to "old skool" theme, but the purple looks too bright and the font color is not the same, so I reverted back to normal theme. One …

Re: Any others given up on the hobby?

in Milliways
Though my activity here have reduced substantially, my interest in classic computing remains the same. My bedroom is still surrounded by shelves lining the classic game boxes. After the advent of 86Box with more stable releases now, I have been "tinkering" with it instead. It's like playing around …

Re: Win X

If Linux was any easier to use, rather than reaching for the nose through the back of the head for every solution you are trying to make for the unnecessary problems, people would have abandoned Windows ecosystem long ago. Windows is still the easiest platform for the end-users. Programs just need …

Re: Is Blood PC game worth getting?

in Milliways
I would say Blood, along with Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior and Redneck Rampage were the quartet coming from the same engine, that were unique and still are worth playing. All of them utilize the Build engine, and yet, have different feel and unrelated environment looks. Blood feels a lot different …

Re: Worst retrogaming regret

in Milliways
When I first upgraded from my XT, I was looking for the 286. But at that time my dad and the computer seller suggested me to wait a bit longer since the 386 was just released and I could get it in a few weeks. But as an impatient boy that I was that time, especially when it came to computers, …

Re: Looking for a new gamepad for my PC

in Milliways
Logitech F310 (wired) or F710 (wireless). Current good gamepads for the PC have been severely limited nowadays. Usually it's either down to these or Microsoft's very popular Xbox360 for Windows and now XboxOne controllers. Razer = overpriced. Always overpriced. Thrustmaster also produces good …

Re: Lord of the Rings adventure game

in Milliways
Shannara is quite a nice game, with quite an emotional moment in it at one point. Problem is the unnecessary but yet, forced horrendous battle encounters. There're no particular tactics or strategy. Mindless click attacking and praying that there are no fatal damage-taking. Or else, reload and …
