Re: Beginner help for DOS version

I never would have expected a 3200x1800 screen mode to be available under DOS at all. And certainly not with UniVBE which hasn't been updated since 2002. at present, from my testing, I only get the 16 colors (as per plain screen 0 text screen), with ScreenRes 3200,1800,8 - I would like many more col...

Re: FreeDOS 21st century?

I haven't kept up with this since I don't use google groups, but when there is a release I'll be sure to check it out. It'll be interesting to see how the multitasking works out.

monitor bytes transferred over network?

Does anyone know how to count the total size of data transferred through a network adaptor? Would it be necessary to use WMI? There are already programs that do this, but they all stink. The best one I found was Shaplus bandwidth meter, but it causes 24/7 disk activity so the HDD can't power down :(...

Re: Open Com activates DTR, how to avoid ?

In the win32 API you can control this with SetCommState. But you need a handle to an open port before you can use SetCommState... so I'm not sure how it would be possible. What if you open the port as write-only??

Re: debugging network code

I downloaded this port monitoring program and as soon I ran it I saw the problem. http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/cports.html

(On WinXP or later, NBTSTAT -an reveals similar information)

critical fact: the sockaddr data structure port field uses reverse byte order

debugging network code

A few years back I wrote a routine that could use WSOCK32 functions to connect to a host and do HTTP GET. So I was able to get network code to function at least to that extent. Today I tried to make a routine to accept incoming connections. But it would just hang on the call to "accept" an...

Re: Shaders from shadertoy.com on old OpenGL 2.x gfx cards.

Do you mean double-precision? I believe it is supported, but runs much slower than single. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_N ... 600_Series

Re: FreeDOS 21st century?

Does the night kernel carry on with the old DOS/DPMI API or does it have a new API? It sounds interesting but I can`t find the slightest info about it.

Re: Difficulties in DOS on real hardware

Old versions of the FreeBasic compiler probably will not work, as I know the DOS graphics library was hopelessly broken until version 1.0 or something. What aspects of the graphics library do you need? I have a few graphical programs that I've run in DOS on a 486. I compiled using FB 0.23. The main...

Re: weird crashes on Phenom II X4

I was using MouseWare 6.30 that I've had since ancient times. I tried CTMOUSE and that resulted in crashes as well. I guess the real problem is the PS/2 mouse emulation in the BIOS (the system has a USB mouse). I tried disconnecting the USB mouse and connecting a serial mouse instead and then FB pro...

Re: Houston, we have a bug!

It's GetVersion all over again. And how do you know that it won't work with a version less than 5.1.2600? Whether your OS checking code works right or not, my vote is that you (and everybody else) just leave it out. Then I won't have to waste time bypassing the check with a hex editor to run softwar...
