Destruction Derby (Works but runs slow, has graphical issues as well. Also, when you change the camera to view to "behind the car", the camera switches to a replay type of view whereby you watch the car drive by you, as in the camera being placed on the side of the road instead).

Logo has the correct aspect ratio in-game.





Tried to ram him here, but just missed.



Suppose to be the "behind the car" view, ends up being a replay type of view. Hard to drive smile

Virtual Pool (missing score display and other information at the bottom of the screen there. Graphics become garabled if you move the the mouse around too much, see last two screenshots. Also supports VESA 640x480, not working though for obvious reasons. Sound Blaster 1.0 and Adlib work in playing MIDI music. Only Adlib produces the sound effects however.)

Inertia Player v1.22 (Very popular module file player back in the day. Sound being pumped out by Adlib at 44kHz).











Links Golf (Links 386 needs VESA, not working yet).

The way I do it is like this (I'm using my at486.chd file as the example in here, which is 500MB in size):


If I try to create a blank (80MB) .CHD according to the BIOS settings:

chdman.exe -createblankhd hdd.chd 1024 9 17

and then convert that to a .RAW file:

chdman.exe -createblankhd hdd.chd 1024 9 17

NOTE: I have no idea how to create a compatible .CHD image that is 500MB in size?!

Quote:

Once you have the *.raw file, open it up in winimage (www.winimage.com). You'll get popup box with a drop down appear. Because I now have a 500MB *.raw file, I get a message that says: "Partition on disk 0, size:511024 MB, FAT". When you see this, just hit OK.


I get the following error instead:

Error reading file C:\MESS\hdd.raw

Quote:

There is a program that comes with MESS and MAME called "wimgtool". You can try using that, but when I try to load the *.chd file, it says it's corrupted.


I originally tried to use this as it made sense to start there:

Unrecognized format

Which seems a little odd.

Sorry, I assumed you already had the CHD. To create a 500MB CHD file named hdd.chd in chdman, type the following command:

chdman -createblankhd hhd.chd 1015 16 63

From the error your getting, I'm assuming your chdman.exe file is in your MESS folder located at C:\MESS\.

You'll need to install MS-DOS in it before using it properly in winimage. You might have to set the boot sequence in the BIOS to a:,c:.

Once you've created your hdd.chd file, or if you already have an existing *.chd file that you want to convert to a *.raw file, type the following command to convert it to a hdd.raw file.

chdman -extract hhd.chd hdd.raw

It should open up in winimage now.

To set this up in the BIOS, just copy the screenshot.



I've tried creating a 1GB chd file, but the driver won't accept it properly and MS-DOS freaks out when trying to install on it. 750MB might work. It's possible now actually have two hard drives installed, so you get both c:\ and d:\. I'll probably just stick with that for now.

Theme Park (1994):



Intro:



My 2 second crap looking park overgrown with flowers. Text caption gets stuck even when I move the mouse away. Screen does not scroll automatically when moving the mouse the near the edge of the screen. There are also two pieces of seperate footpath you can see on the left and the right of the image, these constantly flash. I wasn't able to stop them from flashing, despite what the guy was telling me to do there. Other than this, it runs fine.

A FPU rewrite is in progress by Mr. Phil, so hopefully all those texture bugs should fly away.

My end plan instead is to support VESA ... once that I fully rewrite VGA to a proper modern device (current code is basically horrendous).

Now that I think of it (I've thought that was a bug) ... how to do it?

No need for apologies. With your help I have successfully got a 500MB DOS HD up and running.

When I run DOOM2 I get the following screen though:



My Config.sys file is as follows:

Code:
DOS=HIGH,UMB
device=c:\dos\himem.sys /v
SHELL=C:\COMMAND.COM /E:256 /P


Also, when exiting the EDIT program I always get the following error:

It's possible, but you'll have to set-up Dos in Bosch. I've got a 1.5GB drive laugh
