Re: win98 MS Network Client in pure DOS mode

The PC not doing a full reboot or win.com showing in memory I am, even double checked before posting. The first thing I do when I get access to a Win9x machine again is to see this for myself. Alas, I have nothing handy at the moment. Not sure what's worse, the fact you don't trust me or the fact …

Re: Default System config and autobat files for win 98

in Windows
vkcpolice wrote on 2021-04-20, 05:33: i clearly stated that i cleared the text in the autobat and sys config files... Yes, and there is no such thing as an "autobat" file. There is a file named "autoexec.bat". If you're editing a file named "autobat", then you are editing the wrong file.

Re: Default System config and autobat files for win 98

in Windows
i fixed this by clearing out everything in the system config and autobat files What exactly did you clear? The files are named config.sys and autoexec.bat. (You can easily open them by running "sysedit" from Start->Run.) If you emptied the wrong files then that might explain what are you seeing. (I …

The Reconstruction of ZZT surely qualifies? https://github.com/asiekierka/reconstruction-of-zzt And maybe Keen Dreams? Things got a little weird with that one. https://github.com/keendreams/keen Or the new DOS ports of Sonic? Re: Ports of Sonic CD, 1,2 remakes to DOS

Re: win98 MS Network Client in pure DOS mode

I didn't know there was a difference between restart in dos mode and just booting directly to the command line from the boot menu other than the fact that, if present, a dosstart.bat file (located in the windows directory) is read in. I always thought that you just ended your windows session and …

Re: Final Fantasy VII and VIII definitive MIDI thread

in Windows
I am trying to say you do not need "sound scientists" or a "wizard sound guy" or "divine lords of the internet audiophiles underworld" (!?) or a "necromancer" to produce something that "in practice might be indistinguishable" and that even a "padawan" is entirely capable. I give up. You seem to be …

Re: win98 MS Network Client in pure DOS mode

Oh, you said in your first post that "net use" works fine from within Windows. That answers that question. I don't know why exactly the "net use" command should be available from DOS, or why it does not return a more intelligible error message. But I am confident that you will not get this to work …

Can I assume thats what these downloads in my guide have already done? I don't understand the question. Don't you know what's in your own guide..? Your Youtube link comes up as "removed by the uploader". Unfortunately I couldnt find a viable, or it wasnt user friendly to a sound noob like me, third …

Re: Master of Orion2

Doesn't DOSBox -X run Win9x games? Even if Windows doesn't. As I already wrote, in this case setup.exe is a Windows 3.x application, not a "Win9x game". And in any case DOSBox-X isn't going to run anything related to Windows (either Windows 3.x or Win9x) unless you install the relevant version of …

Re: Win 98se crash

Problem solved. It was the sd card. So, did h2testw find problems then? Or did you just have no problems with a fresh card? I installed windows that way so that I don't need the cd and so that when installing anything else in the future I won't need the cd, just direct install to the cabs folder. …

Re: win98 MS Network Client in pure DOS mode

Let me put another way: When you say "exit to DOS", are you using the "Restart in MS-DOS mode" option from the Shutdown menu, or are you running an "MS-DOS Prompt" window? If you are restarting in MS-DOS mode, then what happens when you use that "net use" command while Windows is running?
