Emulating FIX-MAN.BAT in DOSee.

Use these tabs to make adjustments to the emulation

If the emulation is taking too long to load, you can turn it off.

Applying changes will reload the page and reboot the emulator

Changes are not applied until the browser tab is reloaded

DOS programs need a keyboard for user input
Some common keys used in DOS programs

ENTER ↵ to select or continue
ESC to navigate back or exit
←→ ↑↓ are often used to navigate menus

Emulation too slow?
Set the emulator to use maximum CPU speed
Need to turn off the audio?
Disable sound card support

Have no audio?
  1. Try SoundBlaster 1.0 hardware
  2. Try Covox Sound Master hardware
  3. The song or audio file maybe missing from the program
  4. Audio may not be supported
    Unlike other systems of the era, audio for DOS was unfortunately complicated for both programmers and end users alike. A lot of early scene software didn't bother including it. While those that did often didn't test it on all the hardware they supposedly supported.

Want to hack around in the DOS prompt?
  1. Mount the DOS tools drive with automatic run program turned off
  2. Then dir u: to list the utilities, some included programs 4dos.com cp.exe acidview.exe pictview.exe
  3. Use mount to list the emulated drives
  4. Learn the DOSBox commands

DOSee pronounced dos/see, is our emulator used to run MS-DOS based software in your web browser.

MS-DOS (Microsoft DOS) was the primary operating system used by PCs during the 1980s to the early 1990s and is the precursor to Microsoft Windows.

DOSee is a slimmed down, modified port of The Emularity.

The Emularity is a multi-platform JavaScript emulator that supports the running of software for legacy computer platforms in a web browser. It is the same platform that's running emulation on the Internet Archive.

EM-DOSBox is a discontinued, high-performance JavaScript port of DOSBox that is applied by The Emularity for its emulation of the MS-DOS platform.

DOSee uses BrowserFS ZipFS and ZipFS Extras to simulate zip file archives as hard disks within EM-DOSBox.

DOSBox is the most popular MS-DOS emulator in use today and is frequently used by commercial game publishers to run games from their back-catalogues on modern computers.

DOSee, built on The Emularity, EM-DOSBox and DOSBox. Capture screenshot and save function built on canvas-toBlob.js.

=============================================================================== Sierra's MANHUNTER: NEW YORK -- 'BUSTED' 09/24/1988 by PIRATES-R-US =============================================================================== Sierra's MANHUNTER: NEW YORK is a great graphics adventure that is copy- protected only in the sense that it asks for a random word to be looked-up in the original manual before you can play... This requires both the manual, and the effort to search for the word it wants (eg: "enter the sixth word of the second paragraph on page eleven")... What this is is a bunch of crap! When I want to play a game, I DON'T want to spend time digging out the otherwise useless manual just to look-up some stupid word which the damn thing already knows! (Or else it couldn't tell me if I type in the wrong one or not!) So, what we need is a simple 'patch' to bypass the 'Enter_A_Manual_Word' scenero from the game completely... Well, the companion batch file we developed here at the "PIRATES-R-US" crow's nest does just that! One simple word of caution is, as always, be sure to run it on a backup copy just in case Sierra releases differing versions of the program. (For your information, the only file that is affected is "MHVOL.1", and only 3 bytes of it needed to be altered!) To proceed, insure you have "MHVOL.1" in the current directory and a path to "DEBUG.COM", then run the batch file: "FIX-MAN.BAT" That's all there is to it... The manual is never needed again! If only all 'busts' could be so simple and work so well... Have fun and good MANHUNTING... Another fine 'bust' for your enjoyment from your friends at: +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ PIRATES-R-US ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Doing our part to make copy protection a useless waste of time and money... +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
