Re: Xcom (for DOS)

DOS natively doesnt supports tcp or the internet, this means special network cards with special drivers have to implement their special protocols, and then specialized tcp implementations have to interact with these special protocols, meanwhile they must also support the compilers people intend to …

Re: SoftMPU network support with packet driver

in SoftMPU
You need to tell it how many bytes you are sending because the UDP packet needs to have the length in it. It's not like sending an ASCIIZ string where you can compute it; it has to be explicitly set. While switches and routers might fragment the packet that is not a guarantee and you want to avoid …

Re: SoftMPU network support with packet driver

in SoftMPU
I'm pretty sure you tried blasting a UDP packet out that was 8192 of data plus the IP and UDP headers. That's a no-no, as I don't know of any packet driver that handles jumbo frames. The code that you commented out limits the number of bytes being sent to what can fit in a given Ethernet frame and …

Re: SoftMPU network support with packet driver

in SoftMPU
I'm not an expert on all of the different compilers and toolchains in DOS and I prefer to keep things simple by sticking to one toolchain at a time. However, there are a few calling conventions and most of the compilers can be made to choose between their default and others. For example, I know that …

Re: SoftMPU network support with packet driver

Have you read the mTCP developer documentation? mTCP basically *is* a C project and it would be trivial to make it compile with a pure C compiler. While technically the mTCP code is mostly in C++, it closely resembles C code. The classes are mostly used to enforce some encapsulation so that you use …

Re: Status Of MIRC

ircjr, part of mTCP, defaults to #vc on irc.slashnet.org. As you would expect much of irc nowadays is for open source software or old computers, with the advantage that you can connect to it from your vintage machines. As far as I know IRCjr has no defaults for what networks or channels you should …
