here's something that, as a kid, I've always dreamed to do and had no idea who to ask.
I noticed that, all of the sudden, games started using this DOS4G/W thing, which was loaded before the game itself. I figured that it was to overcome the 640 KB memory limit.
I remember I even tried to guess, in the EXE file, where would the DOS4G/W "stuff" (all those ascii codes) finished and where the actual game started, copying it, and pasting it on top of another non-DOS4G/W file and see what happened. Nothing useful happened of course.
That was the best I could try (hey I was about 15 yo!).
But now there's the internet 🤣!
Do you know if it's possible to take any DOS executable file of app or game, kind of de-compile and "blend" it with a DOS4G/W or DOS32 code, and re-compile it, to have that program or game use the extended memory too?
