I'm a volunteer at the Slovenian Computer History Museum. We have a popular DOS gaming setup on multiple Pentium 133 PCs and it works great -
I found the prefect DOS menu system (MOO 3.1 Menu System) which allows for easy game selection and when the user exist a game, it pops up again.
It's all about the user experience - I strive to provide a completely tested setup with few chances for things to go wrong (users getting lost in the DOS prompt, accidentally deleting files, etc...) but the remaining issue is with how to switch games easily -
unfortunately in the DOS gaming era every game has its own combination (Ctrl + Q, F10 then ESC,... you name it!) and currently I have a note next to the CRT monitor showing the possible combinations.
I would like to make this even simpler: is there a TSR task killer program that would reliably kill the foreground program and allow the MOO menu system to resume (it uses a batch file method to stay running) after the hotkey press? Of course MOO should never be able to get killed.
