Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
It's the ONLY NOS that can network these old systems with modern ones in a seamless fashion. NCP is agnostic of the transport layer and runs over IP or IPX, or anything else. Though you've got to run NetWare 5 or newer to run NCP natively over IP and AFAIK only the windows clients supported that, …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
Netware seems awfully complicated for most purposes and doesn’t interoperate with anything modern. That’s why TCP/IP won. It tolerates 8-bit machines with a serial connection or Raspberry Pi Picos bit banging on a few resistors & a couple wires, as well the latest enterprise server with a fiber …

Re: DDLINK: Easily move files between/To/From DOS systems

in DOS
If you're able to run a VM, you're able to run Netware in there, and that's the best way to network DOS and old Windows to modern systems I think. DDLINK differs from most other DOS "networking packages" in some very positive ways: - It doesn't have to be "installed" (just run) - It's TINY - easily …

Re: Most beautiful Dos-Games for a 486...what are your favorites?

in DOS
If you're strictly talking about the artwork, I think Quest for Glory III is the pinnacle of Sierra's art style WRT to their adventure games (although I didn't care for the game itself). Albion is another stand-out in terms of backgrounds although I don't care for the appearance of the characters. I …

Re: Hexen II OpenGL device

in Windows
I'm an idiot. For some reason the opengl32.dll in the Hexen II directory was set as hidden, and I was playing with this through the CLI and didn't catch this. I don't know why this was set as such, but it was. Maybe the patch set it this way, but I don't know. Anyway, problem solved.

Hexen II OpenGL device

in Windows
How does one select which OpenGL device this game uses? On a system with a G200 and a V2, it uses the V2 and I want it to use the G200. There's nothing in the video options in this game to select the card like with Quake II, etc., and there's no "mini-GL" DLL or such in the game's directory I can …
