You can install any script you want, as long as it's not abusive and you have a license for it. Ryan's site is actually on the same server as yours.

But if you'd rather write all the scripts yourself, I say go for it. You'll learn a lot more.

I don't think you understand Fox's question. He's referring to monochrome text mode, not Hercules graphics or EGA/VGA monochrome. When you have both a monochrome card (MDA or Hercules) and an EGA/VGA card installed, you use "mode mono" or "mode co80" to switch the active adapter in DOS. Whatever pro...

Please don't reprogram the PIT. It doesn't work under Windows XP , and it doesn't even work on plain MS-DOS with the MS Network Client loaded. The RTC (int 70h) already runs at 1024Hz and is much more compatible. Any 286 or newer computer should have no problem with the RTC interrupt. More info her...

Well it's more of a demo than a full game, and there are plenty of other racing game demos that are better imo...The handing is ok, but the physics are crap.

Why do you keep using strings? You don't need strings. You can do it all with one line of code:

Code: Select all

value = (inp(reg) shl 4) or (inp(reg + 1) shr 4)

Sounds like something automated...info.php5 is a simple phpinfo() page, probably some keywords on there trigger it.

Since this site is on a shared server and "Computing/Internet;Media Downloads" is so vague, there's probably not any way to get unbanned, sorry.

Well a dynamic IP is not feasible, but there is an alternate IP you can use:

http://216.118.97.214/~fb/
http://216.118.97.214/~fb/forum/

That's all I can do from this end.

You could always use a proxy to get to the site, or VNC over SSH to access your computer at home.

But if you truly need access to freebasic.net for work, they should unblock it for you. (What IT department doesn't have a helpdesk?)

I applaud your effort, but...fb is probably one of the worst candidates for torrents. It's small and it changes frequently. Torrents are best for large files that don't change (at least for some months), so you can actually have a decent seed/leecher ratio.

The problem is actually the new WDDM video driver interface used in Vista, which doesn't support int 10h. Apparently if you use XP video drivers DOS graphics work ok, but you won't have Aero.

With the proper DOS drivers, you can interface with an SB16 PCI the same as an SB16 ISA (OPL2/3 is emulated so it sounds like crap, but digital audio is ok).
