Hi Joop
Good to see that version 1.8 was running on OS/2, my last report was 1.6.2.
All versions do run on our system, but because I was too lazy in making a new Gantt, I wanted to use the old data. That didn't go with versions 1.9 and up due to a format change. But I could import the xml data. And with that action I found out that a part of the program was compiled for Java 7. So I did some other tests. Version 1.8 does do everything, but be aware that there are still some bugs, but not the one found in higher versions. I did made a ticket, but as all tickets are still open I doubt that it will be read and act.
I don't know if your Gantt is more realistic, I just did a few things in order to see what the program does ;-)

I have added a new program to my Java homepage, its not a game but some kind of PIM. Its called Makagiga and because of our version of Java we are walking far behind. But the latest version for our version of Java can still be downloaded and it works, almost all of it. There is not much to read on my page besides where to get the program and how to setup. You have to run it and then its this is for me or I don't like it. You can find my page here in English http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e159.htm  or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e159.htm.

There is a picture too,


Up to next program ;-), be safe and have fun,
Joop

I have added a classic game to my site today. Its written in Java but the original goes back to the days that we had only ASCII characters. But it is addicting in same way as back in those days. You can find it on my page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e158.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n158.htm.

Internet / Re: Browser or website problem?
« on: June 06, 2020, 08:01:06 pm »
Depends where you put it. In my view its a website problem. They illegally want to now things from you and the programs at the back can't do it with our browser. They valueyourprivacy. Lets translate that. Value is in this case money. So they earn money with your private information. In my country this is illegal.

I have added today a new game to my Java corner. Its called Arcus and this is a Rubik's Cube Simulator. Its a very special program, we don't have 3d, with this game you have 3d, you can turn the cube to all directions. An other special is that it now also present the menu's and other information in Dutch. I have send the author a mail, but up to now no feed back. Therefore the download present everything. Program, manual (English), command file and OS/2 icon's. So you ready to go for trying out. Its very handy to read the manual.
You can find the program on my site in English http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e157.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n157.htm.

Picture in English (on my site also picture in Dutch);


I'm busy with checking my drive for programs installed, but not yet fully tested or published on my site. So check regular the page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e46.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n46.htm.

So, that's it for today, have fun and stay healthy,

I have added another game today to my site, its called Biege and it is an adventure game. See for yourself, graphics are there, but not up to what is possible today, not to mention the screen sizes we have. You can find the game here in English http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e156.htm and here in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e156.htm.

Have fun, warning, with all those games from the past time it might be necessary to pull the plug from your computer, there are more things to do ;-). And stay healthy!

Applications / Re: PDFtk for OS/2 would be nice!
« on: May 31, 2020, 01:56:08 am »
Update, 2 out of the 10 downloaded programs didn't work with Java 6 and needed already Java 7. 1 of the programs was not intended to be used stand alone and through the website and discussions it was used as a plugin for eclips, and we don't have that. 1 program had a corrupt main directory and couldn't be opened "my way". 1 program did install, but after installation complained about Java 6. 4 out of 10 are to stay, added them to the list. 2 out of 10 does do something with pdf, but are something else. One need mysql, we have that, but need to find out more, because this is new and mysql is new. Up to now I always gave Java programs which needed Java and nothing more. If I can get it running, then there are some more Java programs like Squirrel and so on. One copied to a directory, but reading the sh and bat files, it can be done much easier, have to experiment. Not bad for one night.

Okay, I downloaded 10 programs out of 652 Java "programs" with the word "pdf". These are programs with a gui, looking at remarks and date no problem for Java 6, this is not said that it will also run, there might be specific OS lib's included. I just downloaded and stored it on disk. Have to see what this is, if I can install and run it first time it will end up in the page test phase http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e46.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n46.htm. That's it for now.

Have fun,

Why not use Java? There is a program which does what you want, see http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e42.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n42.htm. I also search for pdf now I know there is some interest in it. Found a view programs, but as always, we are behind with the Java version, needs updating to 11 to be on the save side, because when its available for OS/2 this will be the new minimum version.

@Silvan, not sure what you want to tell us.

Have fun and stay healthy,

I have added today an other game. Its Blackjack, nice graphics, but the game is also cheating. You won but you don't get paid sometimes and so on. But it gives lots of fun for sure. There is also not much to read on my page in English http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e155.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n155.htm, but you can download the game.

Sample of the nice graphics;


So, that's it for today, have fun and stay healthy,

There might be something else going on. When Bayer introduced "asperine" they couldn't know that it would became so popular. Some other companies made the medicine and called it the same way. Outcome they see each other in court. But the outcome for Bayer was something they had not expected. They lost there rights on the brand name "asperine" because everyone did know what it was and used it. In other words it became too popular. In short, their success became their grave in some way. After that, the brand name soon was replaced by other brand names and everyone forgot what "asperine" was. They got better alternatives.
Now, what has this to do with exFat? The problem for Microsoft is the same. It becomes too popular and its the only system found on mobile memory cards, sticks, hard drives, camera' s, mobile devices and so on. And this popularity can become a risk for Microsoft. The problem is that they still can ask money for Windows, just because there is Linux, OS/2, DOS and some others. So, Windows is popular, but there are alternatives. This is not the case with exFat. And this is about the same case as with "asperine". So, before damage will occur, they could give some away. If they don't do that and go on the way they did, then they could end up in court with possible much more loss then only exFat. Remind, Microsoft is nothing about software but all about rights, that's how they build Microsoft.

I have added a new game to my website about Java and OS/2. Its called "GetFour", the game has several different names like Connect Four, Plot Four, Find Four, Four in a Row, and Four in a Line. Its a two player game or one player against the computer. You can find it here http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e154.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n154.htm.

It looks like this;

It is a long time ago that I installed DosBox, I'm not on the latest and I do now that it is important to have a right dosbox.conf. At first it did not start on my system because I didn't have this file correctly.

I have updated the page " Java programs in the test phase". It does have more colored dots. The red ones are for newly added, the green ones for testing in progress, the yellow ones for is being worked on and the black ones for waiting.
The list is somewhat alphabetic and are the programs I have on the (back) burner. If you miss something don't hesitate to let me know. There are many programs NOT there because after downloading the programs are for Java versions much older (even Java 1.4 is then new), are for Java versions 7 up to 11, do have included dll or so files which don't work on our system, need 3D we don't have or make use of opengl which we also don't have. Then there are Java programs which do only work inside a browser. And last, programs which are pure Java but have inside some crazy lines which do test if it is Windows, Apple or Linux. For what reason? So after starting you get the message that your OS is not recognized. Al those programs are already from the hard disk, some of them where very large. But there is one which does work but will get your disk a dent in space. One jar file with a whopping size of 190.292K and this is a game.
You can read it all here in English http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e46.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n46.htm.

Sorry, but this is a list, so NO picture this time.
Have fun,
Joop
