You're welcome. 😀

I've updated the fifth archive on p1, too.

Quick update.

I've found a few more emulators..
If we're lucky, one or two may run on Win32s, too.

I've just found out about win86emu for Windows RT.

"Even though I had done a simple cut down QuakeWorld port with the GDI only display, using win86emu it’ll run the 80386 build as well.
while I haven’t thrown much at it, I’m just amazed that so far things are working."

This is interesting, because 80386 instructions and GDI is what most Win32s applications use.
So maybe our Win32s-based emulators will run fine on an RT device?
WinG works together with GDI for outputting graphics, so it may work as well?

If some of you have a Microsoft Surface, please feel free to do some experiments
and write back! 😀

— It's not an emulator, but a game. For Win32s!

Please check out "Ant Hill".

Quick update. Found quite a good read called "Frequently Asked Questions about Win32 Programming"!
- It's not only about Win32, though. It also mentions Win16, WinCE and last but not least, Win32s.
