Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

Lost: a very useful feature: last signon. I used this to determine how far to go back. Now, I will have to make a note of this somewhere. Last login date is in the profile menu at the top right of every page. So it is. Thank you. (It used to be displayed without any need to hunt for it.) Another …

Re: can not exit without typing exit

Re: can not exit without typing exit

I usually use DOSBox to run a text editor, but I also use it to prepare some .zip files to send to my boss. (Insert standard warning about DOSBox being for games.)

Re: speed up the cpu

In DOSBox: Ctrl+F1 => opens DOSBox keymapper Ctrl+F11 => decreases CPU cycles Ctrl+F12 => increases CPU cycles You can modify all of those keyboard mappings in the keymapper. You can also use the cycles command to set the cycles to a particular value. This can be done at the DOS prompt or in the …

Re: Strange TIME

Hi, I'm using a program written in Quick Basic. The instruction TIME$ has these strange behaviors: 1. after midnight the time looks like this 24:10:15 (or 33:20:12 the next day) 2. the Time showed doesn't match with the time of Windows for example DOSBox time is 19:02:00 while Windows time is 19:07 …
