Xcom on CD

in DOS
The install file is under E:\UFO. Unfortunately, I do not see how DOSBox has the ability to run that file. Alright, mount E E:\ is the syntax. I am using DOSBox X.

Re: Technological critique

I have found a couple of obscure settings by fiddling with my TV. If you go to setup you can change the input labels of HDMI 1 to "RECEIVER" which is what is really connected rather than a blu ray player. Also, you can change the "black" from light to dark.

Re: Sound Blaster 16 Clones

K, the Yamaha SoundEdge is a Soundblaster 16 clone, and not a Soundblaster Pro clone. I reviewed the manual, which is available for free from Yamaha, and the OPL4 synthesis chip (described on the wikipedia) that comes with it has a General MIDI mode.

Now that you mention it my father had to call the Geek Squad once to install a new HP multifunction - I couldn't get it to …

Re: Super Duper printers

You can’t go wrong with HP Laser printers. I have always bought them. They just work as intended and they have good software support. This makes me question if you've even used their consumer drivers. Ahem, the problem with HP for a while is the software available for free for use with their …
