Applications / WipeOut
« on: May 22, 2023, 11:13:12 pm »
I'm interested in checking out the WipeOut screensaver on Hobbes. It looks like it was released as freeware. When I unzip the archive, there are two directories disk1 and disk2. When I run the installer in the disk1 directory, it is prompting me to insert the disk. Is there any trick on ArcaOS to do a virtual floppy from a directory?

Setup & Installation / NVME Issues
« on: May 03, 2023, 10:49:44 pm »
I got a free laptop, wanted to try ArcaOS on it, it's a Dell Precision i5. Fitted a new NVME drive and once I followed the instructions to add the driver and edit Config.sys I was able to partition the drive and go through Phase 1. I made sure not to automatically reboot, and modified config.sys with the basedev=nvme.add and removed the switch on the ACPI line. When I reboot, all I get is a blinking cursor. Tried booting directly from the drive and also off the USB installer and selecting to boot from the NVME. Any suggestions? I turned off RAID mode in BIOS and set it to just ACPI.

Applications / Netlabs EPMD Startup Freeze
« on: December 04, 2022, 07:01:59 pm »
Seem to have an issue with Netlabs EPMD 1.24. It installs fine but after rebooting it hangs after launching. If I Control-ESC I get a non responsive message and then it finally loads and subsequent launches are fine. Any idea how to troubleshoot this? V1.0 seems to be fine. Will test out 1.23 also. The whole system is froze until I Control-ESC.

General Discussion / SCOUG

Just wondering if anyone knows if SCOUG is still active. I ran across their website and tried contacting a few email addresses from the site but they all bounced.

Looking for DBExpert. If anyone has a version for sale please let me know.

Storage / Cloning a drive
« on: October 14, 2022, 07:40:38 pm »
Has anyone successfully cloned a drive to a larger drive with ArcaOS installed on it? My laptop's drive is too small and I don't want to reinstall everything. Planning on going from 128GB to 256 or 512GB.

Marketplace / HyperAccess/6 or HyperAccess Pro

Looking for this software. Hilgraeve says they will not sell it to me because it is too old.

Hardware / Updating USB Driver
« on: October 04, 2022, 06:30:35 pm »

I downloaded the USB update from ArcaNoae. When I went to install the package it complained about files in use. Is that OK? Just proceed with the install or is there anything else that I need to do to install the drivers?

Applications / ColorWorks ArcaOS
« on: September 29, 2022, 07:01:24 pm »
I recently installed ColorWorks but it will not load an image. I tried multiple formats. When opening an image I get an error: "An error occurred when trying to open the file." Has anyone run into this issue before?

Applications / Disk Images
« on: September 21, 2022, 05:45:34 pm »
I ran across some games that are disk images. My machine doesn't have a floppy drive, is there a way to mount image files? I saw Virtual Floppy Disk Driver, will this accomplish this task?

Setup & Installation / Desktop Question
« on: September 16, 2022, 11:20:03 pm »
As I begin to add more programs to my ArcaOS mahine, there are shortcuts (I think) and file folders that get added automatically. Should I be moving the icons to the Programs folder on the desktop? If I want to add a program to the desktop, is creating a shadow the best way?

Storage / Directory Sizes

How can you find the size of a directory? I’ve been searching for a way. Can’t find anything yet they all show as zero.

Setup & Installation / DOS/WIN Issues
« on: August 18, 2022, 06:14:47 pm »
I can't run DOS Windowed, the window opens and the prompt is this: >: and that's all I get. DOS full screen I get the prompt but I can't type anything. Neither windowed or full screen OS2/WIN sessions do anything but lock up the computer. Any suggestions? I already added /int10textgrfxsafe to my config.sys as I found in the ArcaOS website.

Applications / Terminal App Recommendation
« on: August 17, 2022, 06:39:19 pm »
Can anyone recommend an app to connect to serial devices? I found my COM port with the help here. I'm trying to connect to a network switch to test out the connection.

Applications / SDL Help
« on: August 16, 2022, 05:59:38 pm »
I am trying to get OpenTTD and SDLPoP to run but I get an error message about SDL not being able to run in a DOS window. I have SDL installed with YUM. Any suggestions? I tried installing the SDL DLL's from Hobbes but I get the same error.
