XP & DOS SAM4

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by The GHOST of WOGER., Jul 12, 2004.

  1. Managed to get SAM4 Dos to run on XP, but only get 1/2 a screen, at the
    top.

    Any way to fix this..?

    Thanks

    Get SAM5 instead.

    Put it in a Window, then bring up Properties on the DOS box. One of
    the tabs has a setting for screen size, make sure it's on 80 by 25.

    If this doesn't help, run the app from a batch file, and include some
    resolution switching commands..

    mode con: cols=80 lines=25

    might be enough to convince it to run 25 line instead of 50. :)

    Seems XP has both COMMAND.COM and CMD.EXE, they seem to respond in
    different ways when running DOS apps.
