Hi

Not yet, but I want to try more Win16 games on ArcaOS. If you want to try something right now feel free to open a new thread on the forum and let's see what happens.

Ha! That did the trick, Dave! Great hint!!

ArcaOS:
Desktop --> Computer --> Install/Remove --> Add Programs --> Search for Programs

Warp 2:
option appears not to be available

Warp 3 & 4:
Right click onto desktop --> Sysconfig --> Add Programs --> Search for Programs

Sim City 2000 DOS runs fine ^___^

Btw Martin, what do you think? Should we provide the DOS settings as attachment to the posts here? You can save and load these for each DOS session.

Hi Mathias

I think was just thinking the same thing. We should do the testing and discussion on how to run the DOS game on the forum, but we should finish the testing with some document/table/summary/Setting. It does have to be complex, but something that summarize the procedure to make it work.

I don't know how to share the DOS setting as an attachment. What do you have in mind? Post something to try it out and I will see what is the best way to organize it.

Regards

The config "per session" can be exported like so:

1) right click on the DOS application (or link) --> Properties
2) Tab "Session" --> click on the "DOS Properties" button
3) Select "All Settings" (I do not know if it exports really all settings if you do not select all settings.. needs to be tested..) --> click the "OK" button
4) mind the "Print" and "Load" buttons. --> Print means Export, Load means Import.

To export, click on Print --> (if you do NOT have a printer, an info dialog shows up (click OK here) --> select (x) Encoded File (do not print this stuff! :D) --> enter a path and file name.. like C:\myconfig.txt
To import, click on Load --> enter C:\myconfig.txt and click on the "Load" button. --> All configurations for this DOS application (or link) are now overwritten with the ones in the txt file.

This is a nice (the only?!) way to export settings per session.
I'd do so, and attach such a file to each game in the posts here. : ) --> Of course the previous ones too! :D
