Re: Joysticks in DOS

in DOS
If you use Win98 you should be able to remap the controls. Not sure if Tie Fighter will adapt to those recaps though.

Re: Why do some old games has no in-game music in it?

in Windows
Probably for the better since the speaker is very limited in what it can do and it could not play sound fx and music at the same time. Bah. Even Paratrooper for DOS had music.

Re: Community Socket 7: Choose my parts!

Very interesting case! Surprised how 'modern' the design is considering it's AT. Also great how it came with mouse, keyboard, psu and motherboard! Great acquisition! I like the betweener idea!

Re: Why DOS died...

It still can be found "in the wild" - rarely, but still used for some tasks, and kept and used by hobbyists. …

Re: Soundblaster and RolandMT sound problem

in DOS
Ok, just now i am getting a hang of the stuff. All those manual entries seemed like they were working but they actually didn't.
