Well, I found it... and a whole mess of similars: http://www.download-central.ws/concepts/Atoms/

Just tried Reaction and it ran right on Win XP. It's just about what I'd thought, except the reaction happens after the 4th addition two a square (at least in this game). :)

Here's a 5 star motorcycle tour through Chernobyl by a leathered-up, geiger counter-wielding, EU biker chick (wonderfully) named Filatova Elena Vladimirovna. As smart as her cycle is fast, Elena's dad was a Russian nuke power scientist, so she knows not a little about the subject, too. B) http://www...

Update:

All 4 of the first group have gone 404. :upset:

All of the 2nd group are still good :clap: , except "http://stud3.tuwien.ac.at/~e0225895/drdos/drsupp.htm" which is 404. "http://www.undercoverdesign.com/dosghost/dos/about.htm" isn't worth clicking now.

1) Since these sound like AA's or AAA's, a battery holder w/velcro does a great job. You'll likely have to soldier the correct connector on the leads. Old PC case speakers usually have the right connector to scavange. 2) Often you'll find a pinhole on the connector blocked/plugged or non-existant fo...

Hi Fabiobol, Did you figure it out or just set the PC aside? Before we start, remember to unplug and ground yourself to the PC case when handling internal parts. That HDD controler notice should be checked. Controllers do die and the older PC's usually did NOT have onboard IDE connector. If not, a c...

Ahhh, just hockey? Well I admit I liked the Oly Hockey more (was that a joke? :rolleyes: ) because the refs knew when to stop a fight, as opposed to the pro games, which I don't enjoy much. (Promotes gratuitus violence in sport and with kids who idolize it.) If I want boxing I'll look for the ropes ...

Running from a boot disk will give the true DOS version, because you aren't under Windows,... which is my point here (not to be handheld by Windoze). Hence, if you wish you could build a basis for a Super DOS, this might be a starting point. The files on this basic boot disk are the core and heart o...

I wrote this poll for stand alone DOS OS's 3 years ago and wished I'd done a better job of it. Also, I did try to change the poll a couple times but the edit screen doesn't allow this once ONE vote is cast. :Angry: In some ways I consider DR-DOS 7 (now FreeDOS if I recall) a Super DOS. Hence the 1st...

I'm going to try a little resurrect spell on this topic.:karate: A bit of different tack though: The idea is to add or replace standard DOS programs and files with improved versions availible on the net and various OS disks.

I saw a couple.... it looked likeit hurt... It did and many of us thought the woman was in bad shape. But she took a second, told her partner to help her up and finished the routine... to a standing ovation. The medicos found a deep bone bruise and she couldn't continue well enough in the next part...

The number of gamer posts seemed small, DOS wasn't represented at all and so it might be a fairly new part of the forum. Hence an unplowed field for us to point people in our direction. ;)

Places to strike up the DOS gamer band!

Post places we can go to wave the DOS gamer banner in GUI faces. B)


This very good general PC site has a gamer forum. Not much on DOS games yet, so find my topic to change that and pile it on! DUX Computer Digest at: http://www.duxcw.com/yabbse/index.php?board=13
