Re: Today's accomplishment 😁

in Milliways
Aaaand here's Xmas edition... 20220118_020556.jpg This is a tough one in general, but I still believe the Druidia levels from the original vereion are harder than The Eve levels of the Xmas edition. Xmas is more fun than the original IMO. Each level has a secret that must be discovered to win. It's …

Re: Games with Adlib as an option for sound effects

Re: X58/i865/V880 - Yamaha7x4/AureaV1/2 pure Dos7.1- compatibility list/research/ ultim. drivers configs, WIP- gurus ne

For the purposes of DOS games compatibility, you want the read cache disabled to mainly make sure instruction reads are also slow, which best simulates a CPU running at slow clock rate and taking a while to execute each of those instructions. Slowing other memory operations is nice but secondary to …

Wow so we have where some real hockey star :) I tried to google, didnt find the team.. Hehe yes I was a graphics programmer on that game (I never played hockey in real life though). We added ourselves in a special "developers" team in the game and were quite proud with the salaries we gave to …

Re: Rubber feet browned my PC metal case

in Milliways
Tried Magic Eraser, baking soda, and even dishwasher powder detergent. None worked 😐 This thing is really baked in there.. dang. I don't have any of those red/blue erasers around to try, but I'm becoming quite skeptical at this point. Still, thanks all for the suggestions so far.. I'm starting to …

Re: Rubber feet browned my PC metal case

in Milliways
Tried 99% IPA.. the browning got off very very slightly after rubbing rather strongly for several seconds. The tissue came out with gray material on it, so I'm afraid it's starting to take off the case paint. No obvious discoloration yet, but I'm not continuing with the IPA.. I'll see if WD40 makes …

Rubber feet browned my PC metal case

in Milliways
Hi. Got an unfortunate surprise on my main DOS PC case today. Brown circular markings became imprinted on the top of the case where the rubber feet of a network switch used to rest. Any idea how to fix this (short of repainting)? Filename 20211229_054316.jpg File size 1.45 MiB Views 371 views …

Lemmings 2 Disk Protection

Hi. This is more of an archival topic for future reference than a question. I was trying to archive my original disks of Lemmings and Lemmings 2 The Tribes. Turned out, both have on-disk copy protection. I haven't toyed with the first Lemmings enough, but spent more effort on Lemmings 2 since it was …

Re: Operation Neptune Program Disk Image

in DOS
Just to update. Turns out the 720K program disk has the exact same contents as the first 360K program disk (it also has hidden files I missed in the list). I imaged the 360K disk and adjusted the image to 720K and wrote it to a floppy. Works, and the installer ran properly. Cheers!

Operation Neptune Program Disk Image

in DOS
Hi, I got a copy of Operation Neptune but the Program Disk (disk 1) came out unreadable unfortunately despite my cleaning efforts. It's the 720k Ver 1.01 disk. 20211123_103941.jpg The directory listing is as follows: INSTALL.EXE ON.BAT TLC\ON\ON.EXE TLC\ON\NEP000.DAT I have also the 360k disks fully …

ImageDisk writing too slow

Hi. I'm finding myself spending a lot of time on ImageDisk (by Dave Dunfield), archiving and writing images with it. However, one major annoyance is that frequently when writing an image to a disk, the writing process is VEERRRY slow. When it's working fine it blasts through the sectors and writes a …
