Dialog Enhancer '99
« on: November 26, 2022, 06:35:45 pm »
Hi

Just for the fun of it I want to try to install "Dialog Enhancer '99" on a ArcaOS test VM.  But I can not get the installer to work for this file "DialogEnhancer99_2-00g.zip". The installer says it misses some files that are right there.

Also, I guess that later I can use "DialogEnhancer99_pack_6-00g.zip" to update it. It has a "UPDATE.DAT" binary that I have no idea how to use yet.

Any ideas on how to install and update this software?

Regards

Ohh, silly me. Now I get it. You need to combine both files, and the installer will work.

Now I want to see how it works, I don't see any dialog change according to the screenshots.

Regards

IIRC Dialog Enhancer was incorporated into the eCS and AN desktops.

Yes, on ArcaOS there exists \install\dialoag\ORG_EN.ZIP. IIRC it was DIALOG.ZIP on eCS. Both files hold the original resources from before the processing.

Don't remember the licensing, but it may be that eCS used a light version of Dialog Enhancer. But even if that's true, the dialogs received so much updates in the meantime that nobody wants to go back. Just ask Alex for details.
