Re: Dual boot with Win 95 Dos and Win 3.11

in Windows
If you install Windows 3.1, then Windows 95 Upgrade (the retail product, not OEM like OSR1 or OSR2) you don't need to run any third-party utilities to get dual boot to work. I guess you don't get FAT32 that way, but you probably don't need it for your 800MB HDD. I'm not sure if you can get USB …

Re: Adventures with Windows 3.0

Higher color depths means Program Manager .GRP files will get larger because they store the icons, and there's a limit on the size (probably 64KiB but I forget), so basically higher color depths means less icons per group. At least this affects 3.1x so I assume it affects 3.0 too! .FON font files …

Re: Developing for Windows 98 and up?

My recollection is that Windows 8.1 broke the ability to run Visual C++ 6, which would be annoying if you wanted to do some build/debug cycles on a newer OS. Perhaps that got fixed or someone found a workaround. I've heard good things about Borland C++ Builder. I haven't used it much myself but it …

Re: Lan to RS232

in Windows
Perhaps if you install a firewall it will give you a way to turn off the network by preventing any data from passing in or out, at least to the extent that the firewall isn't itself buggy and may have some way to get around it. I have ZoneAlarm 2.6.362 installed, but when I tried locking it using …

Re: Windows 95 setup guide for the 2020's

From what I recall leonardo is right. I've never used Rain, but this is how I'd expect things to work: When Windows 95 doesn't have any other application to run or any kernel work to do, it considers the CPU as idle, but what it does is unfortunately not tell the CPU to halt, which is why you want …

Re: Bypassing Shareware Time Limit

Nice work elszgensa ! That's very persistent of you, I would have given up after it disabled menus the first time :D Did you try again due to some previous experience with other software that behaves that way? I spent a little time checking if other cracking software I was aware of supported this …

XML schema and CSS questions for a retro programming projects

in Milliways
I've reverse-engineered enough of the HyperReader!/HyperWriter! version 3 (.HW3) file format to be able to generate a fairly high-fidelity HTML representation of the contents of the later PC-SIG CD-ROMs. I've written Python code which converts from HW3 to XML, and XSLT to convert XML to HTML with …

Re: 3D games you would like to see in high resolution

in Milliways
So, games with more or less "pure" Vector graphics could benefit greatly. Few games that cross to my mind are some early Microprose titles such as M1 Tank Platoon or Stealth Fighter 2.0. Pacific Air War or Task Force 1942 would probably work also quite fine, like Dynamix's Aces-series flight …

Re: Experience with "3DS801A" FM801 clone in DOS

It's very similar to foxbat's , but mine has been manufactured by Genius. Forté Media chip reads H6L02.00 and the AC'97 chip is a STAC9704T. Thanks for the info, and thanks for the info regarding games too! Do you understand how to set the volumes using VOLUME.CFG? No, sorry, or if I figured it out …

Re: Experience with "3DS801A" FM801 clone in DOS

I'm glad it was useful and that you had some success tauro ! I was actually wondering recently what else I might be able to get to work with this card, so I'd be interested to see a list of the games you tested it with, if you have time to share that. Is your board identical to mine or just similar?
