I said in response to someone on this thread that I would start posting a few random drivers or apps for DOS, but it would be a good opportunity for anyone to share (or even give experiences on them). The main thing, I guess would be to figure out what would be worth sharing.

I'll start by posting what I put in the other thread, and will be adding more in the coming days, along with descriptions. Of course, if there's any objections to what is being posted for warez or other reasons (newer more complete versions perhaps?), I can always pull the files from my posts. Or if there is a need for any documentation on how to load any of these, by all means ask.

AOATAPI - the AOpen CD-ROM driver, supports UDMA
CTMOUSE - an alternative mouse driver.
SHARE - the Datalight file sharing driver.
SHCDX33A - a MSCDEX replacement ver 33a.
SHCDX33C - ver 33c of a MSCDEX replacement.
UIDEXMGR - UIDE and XMGR.
UMBPCI - a UMB memory provider.
XMSDSK - I found the full package, see below:

More files I have of the category of USB drivers. YMMV, and I don't know the exact functions of some of these or whether they would work (much of my testing on these drivers were limited for lack of documentation). Please enlighten me on any particular application for these - I'm sure I'll get my original questions out on these files when I reference them and whether they are worth keeping for whatever reason.

IOMEGA-USB - some random USB drivers put out by Iomega. Also a 1394 firewire driver in this package.
Cypress-USB - the Cypress DOS USB drivers.
Motto-Hairu - the access drivers for USB (DI1000DD). Includes RAMFD.SYS, I guess related to USB floppy drives?
Ninja-USB - I don't know where I got these drivers, but one of them has the string "NinjaUSB ASPI CD-ROM Driver (ATAPI) Ver 3.09 Copyright©2000 Workbit Corporation.", so I'm guessing these are USB drivers as well.
PanasonicUSB - varying versions of the Panasonic USB drivers. Also has a USB CD driver in there.
SBP1394 - I guess this is a IEEE1394 Firewire driver that came with the Sound Blaster Pro?
OHCIUHCI- I don't know where I got these either, but I did figure out they were USB 1.1 drivers.

Download the Cypress Drivers here
Download OHCIUHCI here.

Another set of drivers soon, if people want me to keep posting.

When I was trying to sort out the different versions I was finding, I renamed them with a letter on the end and changed the CONFIG.SYS to check them on my test boot disk. I ended up storing them in the same directory as well, so I left the names alone. Those three files are differing versions of the same thing (USBASPI.SYS).

More stuff out of my collection (Category: General Odds and Ends). Again, I don't know the results of any of this on your system so YMMV.

SLOWDOS - a software driver to slow down games.
THROTTLE - a hardware driver to throttle back the CPU. If the chipset is supported it's the same equivalent as the old turbo button. Again useful for slowing down games.

FU_RD19I - a RAMDISK driver set. This is the package that includes XMSDSK.EXE, which I posted earlier.
SRDSK209C - another RAMDISK package.

WAIT - a wait for keypress driver, returns an error level corresponding to the key pressed.
TM - changes the textmode and keyboard repeat rate at the command-prompt.
WRITEXT - writes text at a specified position on screen in a specified color.
ZENO - a driver for faster screen writes.

ATX_SHUTDOWN - does the ATX shutdown or restart at the DOS prompt. Check the batch files first before you use them.

PERUSE - a driver which gives scrollback capability for the command prompt. After you load it, Hit "Scroll Lock" to use, and hit it again when you are done using it.
MOUSCLIP - Clipboard capability for DOS. Invoke with /H for usage instructions.
ESCAPE - press F12 to exit any program. Use with caution.

DRVINFO - a "Is Drive Ready?" util. Also has a drive types lister.

Hope these are useful to someone...

The main thing, I guess would be to figure out what would be worth sharing.

SlowDown is a classic, ftp://bretjohnson.us/programs/slodn310.zip the author's homepage http://bretjohnson.us/ has more DOS utilties.

Here 3 DOS programs which I still use occasionally under Win98, in a full-sized DOS window, on a 700-MHz laptop:

- DCF 5.3 (=Disk Copy Fast) for archiving old floppies as dcf images, which can later on be handled with Winimage under Win98. doesn't need to be slowed down.
- VGA-Copy-pro 5.30, works fine with SlowDown, for reading/copying weak floppies (99 retries)
- DiskDupe v4.07 for cleaning a floppy head with a special cleaning floppy, needs SlowDown

I am looking for CardWizard for Windows 3.1 release 5.30.10 and for CardSoft for DOS release 5.30.10, both by SystemSoft.

These are DOS 6 drivers for 32-bit CardBus card controllers in a laptop. They were the successors to CardWizard95, which was a DOS 6 driver for 16-bit PCMCIA card controllers used in laptops until 1997.

With any of these drivers I would be able, under DOS 6, to use old SCSI devices with my CardBus laptop, via a 16-bit SCSI PCMCIA card.

Some more sharing of DOS stuff. But apps this time (I posted most of my driver collection that was out of the ordinary). Though I noticed when I was setting up a DOS VM that I have no CPU idling drivers. So I'm sure there are more categories that have been missed.

Anyway to the apps:

MP3 players? Here's one that has most of the bells and whistles that you can get out of DOS, as long as you use the right command-line parms:

http://www.damp-mp3.co.uk/

There's also a link to a Media manager on the site, as well as some ID3 editing tools.

Another one. Need a CD-burning software for DOS?

http://www.freeweb.hu/doscdroast/
http://www.goldenhawk.com/dos.htm

And a third, though I hesitate to post it for the warez rules (I'm not entirely sure of its status). Did you know that version 1.0 of the Acrobat Reader (you know PDFs?) was written as a DOS app?

FYI:
http://www.nomdo.dds.nl/psview.htm

Note: PSVIEW was designed to run in plain DOS on a 386 or better computer. It was tested with OpenDOS 7.01, DR-DOS 7.02, MS-DOS 6.20 and FreeDOS 1.0 (courtesy Edmund Swylan). Running PSVIEW in full-screen Windows 95/98 is possible as well. There is no need, however, for using PSVIEW on a Windows computer: FOXIT or Acrobat reader is more appropriate then. The reason why I programmed PSVIEW is that the latest (and last) DOS-version of Acrobat reader is completely obsolete and unable to display any modern PDF file.

PSVIEW uses PDFTOPS to decode PDF files, not GhostScript. The reason is that PDFTOPS is, unlike GhostScript for DOS, still actively maintained and therefore better equipped to handle modern PDF documents.

Well i have a few dos games that i play and i would like to exceed maxium performance
the games are

Mortal Kombat 1
Mortal Kombat 2
Mortal Kombat 3

i'm aware of Dosbox but i prefer the true native dos instead of a emulator.
So which files would you recommend i see the list
but don't know which ones to choose from.

I also have

Mortal Kombat 4
Mortal Kombat Trilogy but they don't require dos.

What apps do I need to run the Xbox 360 controller in DOS.

Besides the Forum posted before by expert01:
http://www.bttr-soft...forum/forum.php

I'll throw in the home page too:
http://www.bttr-software.de/

Several interesting utilities for the good ol' DOS user, I will point out this one:
http://www.bttr-soft...oducts/drvexch/

Description

It is known that the way that DOS assigns drive letters to hard disk partitions at startup is not very conveniently for users, who have removable hard disks, i.e., mounted in "drawers", or just add a new hard disk to their systems.

On a two-disk system with 1 primary partition and 2 logical drives in an extended partition for each hard disk:
primary DOS partition on the first hard disk becomes drive C:
primary DOS partition on the second hard disk becomes drive D:
next drive letters are assigned to logical drives in extended partitions on the first hard disk
next drive letters are assigned to logical drives in extended partitions on the second hard disk

Therefore, if you have software installed in the extended partition of the first hard disk and you add or remove second hard disk, the drive letter changes and all paths (and maybe software configuration files) become invalid.

In addition, you can create (but not with standard DOS FDISK programs) more than one primary partition on each hard disk; this can be sometimes useful, e.g., when you want to have several versions of DOS and/or Microsoft Windows installed on your PC and want to keep them well separated.

As it is non-standard configuration, it is handled differently by different versions of DOS.

Very old DOS versions ignore the additional partitions. The MS-DOSes (including MS-DOS 7.x from Microsoft Windows 9x) and probably IBM PC-DOSes assign letters AFTER all logical drives in extended partitions on all hard disks to those primary partitions. The DR/Novell/Caldera DOSes assign letters to ALL primary partitions BEFORE all logical drives in extended partitions.

What a mess...

But now, after a long trial-and-error research, we managed to prepare a solution (or better: a partial solution) to this problem.



And several DOS ports:

Has anyone got (or know where to get) a NTP client program for a Network Time Server?

Many thanks.


Well, googling for:
DOS NTP client program for a Network Time Server
;)

gives this:

and this (win09x - not DOS):
http://nettime.sourceforge.net/

It seems like the Delaware University program can be compiled for DOS too :unsure:
