Wait until 2:45 before he actually turns it on... ;)

This is from 1989? :shock: I don't remember computers from back then being so ... tiny. ;)

And at 15:49 it finally starts to work! :D

An interesting trip back in time, Tawm. ;)

It was - and the fact he got the files off the drive and made them available - link in first post. Though I've tried to run Codename from the disk info he got - and I can't get it to run. So I need to see how he did it.

It was no big deal to get it to run.

I mapped it in DOSBox, went to that path - tried Sierra ... just goes to the next line down with a blinking cursor...

Remember that this came from a Peanut. You have to match machine types between the conf and the CFG.

Just edited the RESOURCE.CFG to EGA320.DRV and it worked.

It's interesting some of those debug functions...

Collector, this came from a Peanut? I don't understand. Do you mean Jimmy Carter? ;)

I am pretty sure you're kidding - but in the event you're not Peanuts!

I was, of course, referring to Carter's past as a peanut farmer (before he became POTUS). ;) But I couldn't think of anything else (I was only 7 when the PCjr came out, in 1983). :)

The name "PCjr" faintly rings a bell, but not really. I was using a Commodore 64 at the time, and continued to use it all through the 80s. (In 1990, I got my first PC).
