Re: Anyone read japanese? A little help needed.

in Milliways
Thanks a lot, newtmonkey! This was really helpful. I did not know the card supported Teletext. Real quick from top to bottom: ----- Menu bar [F: File] [T: Tuner] [D: Teletext] [O: Options] [S: Status] [Area name] [Station name] [Frequency] [Tokyo] [NHK-FM Tokyo] [82.5 MHz] Program content -> Program …

Anyone read japanese? A little help needed.

in Milliways
I want to translate a DOS based program for a PCMCIA Radio. I'd be grateful if someone could translate the menu items and also some text below. Something can be guessed, but not all of it. When I run the actual program it does not show japanese characters correctly. So I'll have to poke around the …

Re: Why DOS died...

in Milliways
I've been doing some typing/programming in DOS recently. And the reason why it died bacame cristal clear for me - it does not have copy/paste functionality :D That's why I prefer to use a modern IDE with a cross compiler such as gcc-ia16, Open Watcom v2 or DJGPP when I do DOS programming. There's …

Re: Why DOS died...

Huh, copy paste worked fine in Turbo Pascal 3. Don't you remember your wordstar key bindings? Well, it works in many text editors. But what I meant is cross OS/Application copypasting. There are some TSR programs, that can do cross-program copy-paste on text-mode applications. :) Turns out there …

Well, it works in many text editors. But what I meant is cross OS/Application copypasting. Yep, I figured that, but I'm just yanking your chain. I did spend a lot of time in DOS using Turbo Pascal 3. And I spent time wordprocessing to wordstar! And another forgotten feeling is when your heart sinks …

Re: FastDoom. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

Really nice port, ViTi95. Covox support made my day. Is there a chance to add Sound Blaster direct mode (no DMA) support? In particuar this could be useful for PCMCIA sound cards that lack DMA. Here is what SB hardware programming guide has to say about it Filename direct mode.png File size 36.49 …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

in Milliways
I confess that I would really like to learn assembly language. I buy books about it and pile them up. But it hasn't yet gotten to actually learning. Every time I decompile a program and look at it, I have a feeling that I'll never understand how it works. 😀
