MS-DOS Starter Pack

Post by karr » Sat 20 Jul, 2019 11:42 pm

hi
a friend of mine created a pcem starter pack


MS-DOS Starter Pack

Image


Video:

https://streamable.com/492fa

Download:

https://mega.nz/#!HqQEBaqa!mdVNgeNTsB8- ... RDz_MhIg3k

Instructions:

- right click on the file, click "Extract File"

- buy winimage

- open folder "PCem" -> "hard disc"

- right click on the file "WinImage_install.reg" -> edit

- now we need to find two lines:

"NameRegistered"="placeholder"
and
"CodeRegistered"="placeholder"

- rename "placeholder" (insert your data from winimage) and save

- download "PCem v15 for Windows": https://pcem-emulator.co.uk/downloads.html

- right click on the file, click "extract file to" -> Select folder "PCem" (folder from my archive)

- start pcem, add a new config and enter the name "dos"

- install ms-dos (installation path: "C:\DOS"), create the hard drive ("dos.img") and save it to the folder "PCem/hard drive"

- now open "pcem/configs" and edit the file "dos.cfg"

- we need to find the line "hdc_fn =", change it to ".\hard disc\DOS.img" and save again - pcem is now portable

- go to the folder "stuff" which contains the files you have to copy to the dos hard disc (hard disc.exe)

- start ms-dos
"cd drivers"
"!install"

- done. Have fun!

only installed soundcard drivers are included

Oh, okay. Thank you for the clarification and I'm sorry for misunderstanding. I didn't know that your pack only included drivers.

with the pack you can change soundcard and memory configuration
with 2 keys

for e.g. go from sb awe32 to gus
or go from ems to xms

(without installing new drivers or manually changing config.sys and autoexec.bat everytime)

pcem is now portable
it isn't anymore as soon as you mount anything. There is no relative path support.
