Had my own corona virus scare recently..
Oh, That was a good scare...

I have attached WDSchess.zip in case anyone wants to give it a try - something to do while stuck at home  :-)

I tried for a while WDSchess and it is working fine from my site. I would suggest you to assign it a version number (1.0) and create a simple WDSchess.txt file to be included. Do you want also to include the source code?

I will put it also on the OS2World Gaming site.

Hi

I had completed checking the Puzzle (86 games) and Educational  (22) games on the Gaming site. I had been checking page by page to update missing pictures and broken links.

It is interesting to see how many sites are gone after more than ten years. Instead of deleting those link, I'm putting the link to the wayback machine to remember those pages.

Hi again

Tellie helped me yesterday and compiled Alzarin Tretris again using a modern libc library. Here it is the compiled version for you to provide me feedback. On my side it works, but I have problems with sound, while Tellie tells me the sound works. Please give it a try.

Hi Martin

Attached is WDSchess_V1-0.zip containing:-

   WDSchess.exe - chess game
   WDScreate.cmd - script to create program object in Games folder
   WDSchess.txt - this file
   WDS_src.zip - modified source files and instructions

I have uploaded the zip file to hobbes but very happy to also have it on the OS2World Gaming site.

Maybe a more competent coder could look into adding an option to Save/Load Game as I am having trouble understanding the coding.


Regards

Pete

Any ideas on this subject:

Hi

I think I never tried Light Cycles and not even have a picture of it.
https://www.os2world.com/games/index.php/native-games/puzzle/275-light-cycles

It required something called ACSSVC (APPC.DLL and ACSSVC.DLL), does someone has those DLLs?

Will it work, or does it requires some strange network protocol (not TCP/IP) to run?

Where are the files to be placed?  Just guessing, I placed to the USR directory.  However, the program does not run.

Hi David.

Possible you are missing the SDL libraries. There are in the Netlabs RPM or at hobbes.  You can check the issue (error message) by trying to run the exe from the command line. Or you can use PMDLL to check which dependencies it is looking for.

I was missing the SDL libraries.  However, it still does not work for me.  It keeps asking for a name and level.  Can't get past this point.

Hi David

I think you are misplacing the "/var/atris"

Check if you have the file "Atris.Players" on "c:\var\atris"

Check the console that is showing error for something like:
 Identity File [/@unixroot/var/atris/Atris.Players]
