Re: A "ghost" in DOSBox

Maybe bug... maybe feature? :grin: A similar issue with the PAUSE command is fixed in SVN, so I guess the fix here is similar as well: Bit16u n=1; do { DOS_ReadFile (STDIN,&c,&n); + if (c==0) { + // read and ignore extended key + DOS_ReadFile (STDIN,&c,&n); + continue; } - } while (!c || !(ptr = …

Re: Possible to get system date in a bat file?

My next problem is that I need to isolate the day and month, since the year is not relevant for recurring holidays. As far as I can tell there are no string manipulation functions available. Yeah, there is only so much one can do with old DOS batch files. You could write a simple DOS program that …

Re: Possible to get system date in a bat file?

Cute trick, but needs a few tweaks to work with the internal shell of DOSBox SVN: @ECHO OFF DATE>TEMP.BAT ECHO SET DATE=%%3>CURRENT.BAT CALL TEMP.BAT DEL TEMP.BAT DEL CURRENT.BAT ECHO %DATE% IF %DATE%==02/29/2020 ECHO Today is Leap Day The VER| part is not needed because the DATE command in DOSBox …

Re: Open with: DOSBox

mounting support for zip files is what I had in mind. An experimental patch was made for it: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=9591 I think some version of it is in the Daum build, but both Daum and the patch are more than a little out of date now. Also, I don't know how well it might co-exist …

Re: DIGPLAY sample player inverse stereo

the SB16 driver i hacked looks like this: MOV [0479],80 MOV [0487],00 MOV [0495],00 MOV [04A3],00 Eh, those instructions don't exist in either of the driver files in your attachment. However, the MOV instructions that put 4 0x80 bytes into sequential memory as samples DO exist in both driver files, …

Re: DIGPLAY sample player inverse stereo

(caugh) your patch didn't warns if the driver has different addressing? It looks for a specific code sequence, and it changes nothing and displays "File unrecognized" if the sequence is not found. The addresses we're discussing here have no bearing on how the program works because, as I mentioned …

Re: DIGPLAY sample player inverse stereo

Do you got an idea why the SB16 driver (or the player when on a sb16 board) opens with an audible click only on the left channel while the SBPRO won't do that? And maybe one how to fix that? My fix program didn't bother with the click/pop because it only happens when the SB16.DIG driver is …
