Convert Teledisk or Kyroflux formats to IMG/IMA?

in PC Emulation
Is there any way to convert the Teledisk or Kyroflux raw dumps to .img format to use in emulators? I tried searching online but couldn't find the exact process. Most websites are simply talking about preservation and writing back to floppy drives. Thanks for any info.

Re: Why DOS died...

in Milliways
DOS never died. It's just that DOS is using obligatory GUIs nowadays. And all these GUIs - Windows/Linux/Mac all trying hard to keep the terminals and command prompt to go back to what is best done in DOS-style. DOS never died.

Re: OLD GAMES THAT HAD CD AUDIO TRACKS?

in DOS
[..]Sam and Max Hit the Road[..] Oh my gosh, I almost forgot that it had CDA tracks. Who remembers this ? :D I don't usually follow this thread. Just noticed this. Really?

Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

I don't know how effective or dependable are these so-called LA32 daughterboards. This is the first time hearing of such thing. I'm not really optimistic about it when it comes to compatibility too.

Re: DOSBox vs PCem vs 86Box which do you prefer?

Bad puzzles would be ones where the solution still doesn’t make much sense even after looking them up on a walkthrough or solving …

Re: Are there any more aspect ratio ultratolerant people?

in Milliways
I used to stretch all DOS graphics to max on my 37" LCD TV those days, for want to play everything "FULL"screen. Also was playing stretched full screen on my laptops and desktops. Until I realized everything's stretched too much and after comparing with 4:3 mode (selectable on TV), which is more …

Re: Best SC-55 SoundFont?

in Milliways
Stumbled upon this SC-55 -alike SoundFont, that is compatible with General MIDI (don't choose Sound Canvas option in games). As far I could tell this sounds as close to the original SC-55 that I have, and sounds better in Heretic and DOOM 2 compared to the Arachno SF that I have been using so far.

Re: DOSBox Game Launcher (DOSBox Frontend)

@overload86: haaaalp is underway @Malik: Thanks! Regarding compilation -- the only thing you need is a recent Java SE Development Kit (aka JDK, version 8 or newer) and Apache Ant and the DBGL source . Extract the source code into any folder, open up a Terminal and enter that folder, type 'ant'. …
