Emulating NEV_SHAR.EXE 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 will not be applied until this browser tab has been refreshed





DOS programs need a keyboard for user input

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
Emulation too fast?
Set the emulator to use the 8086 CPU configuration
Experiencing graphic or animation glitches?
Set the emulator to use VGA only graphics configuration
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 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.

                   What is Copy-Protection ?

  Copy-protection  is a  scheme  used by  a  software publisher  to
  protect his product from unauthorized  copying.

  Sometimes  the distribution  diskette can  not be  copied by  DOS
  commands.   Sometimes the  number  of times  the  product can  be
  installed to a hard drive  is limited.  Sometimes before starting
  up, the program  asks for information which can  only be answered
  by referring to  the manual or other  materials which accompanied
  the original product.

  This  last category  is  called  paper protection.  It  can  also
  include  devices like  code-wheels,  no-copy  paper with  special
  pictures on it, and colored plastic overlays.


                   What is Wrong with Copy-Protection ?

  Copy-protection,  in attempting  to  prevent unauthorized  people
  from  using  the  product,  can interfere  with  the  secure  and
  pleasurable use of the product by legitimate customers.

  A diskette is a fragile thing.   Each time the copy-protection is
  tested, the head of the  floppyΓ‘drive makes physical contact with
  the diskette.  If the diskette  becomes unreadable, you will find
  that you are locked out of your own software.
♀
  Some manufacturers allow the copy-protection to be installed to a
  hard drive,  thus avoiding the  diskette friction  problem.  This
  works fine  until you experience a  hard drive crash.   After you
  restore  from   backup  you  discover   that  your   install  has
  disappeared and you are locked out of your own software again.

  Paper based  protection is just  plain annoying.  Having  to hunt
  for the manual or  code wheel every time you play  your game gets
  to be irritating very quickly, especially  if you own many games.
  If that  piece of  paper is  lost, stolen  or destroyed,  you are
  locked out of the software that you paid for.

  You must hope  that the manufacturer of the software  is still in
  business, still is  shipping the product that you  are using, and
  is friendly  enough to ship new  materials for a  reasonable fee.
  And you  still are locked  out of your  own software for  days or
  weeks until you receive the requested materials.

  Then you wait for the whole cycle to repeat.


                   Who Should Use NeverLock?

  Any legitimate  owner of a  program which NeverLock  supports and
  who wants  to be rid  of the  risk and annoyance  associated with
  copy-protection, should  use NeverLock.


                   Who Should NOT Use NeverLock?

  If you  are not a legitimate  owner of a particular  product that
  you wish  to unprotect,  then STOPΓ‘RIGHTΓ‘NOW and  go out  and buy
  your OWN copy of the product.

  You may  only use NeverLock to  unprotect software that  you have
  purchased.  NeverLock  is not,  repeat NOT,  to be  used for  any
  purpose which deprives any software  publishers of their rightful
  income.

                  Safety First

  You should copy all the files of the protected product to another
  directory on your hard drive, and then use NeverLock.

                   How Do I Use NeverLock?

  Nothing could be simpler.  NeverLock comes as a single executable
  file, with  no accessory files  to keep  track of.  Just  copy it
  from the  distribution diskette to your  hard drive and  then run
  the EXE  file.  Watch the  introduction until the  'Conditions of
  Use' appear.  Answer the question and  the main menu will appear.
  You may hit any key to bypass the animation.

  Naturally, NeverLock itself  is not copy-protected.  You  may use
  the DOS copy command to back it up.
♀
  When  the main  menu  appears  use the  arrow  keys  to move  the
  highlight bar to any option and press the Enter key to select it.
  The program  guides you every step  of the way  with instructions
  and  dialogue  boxes,  and  there is  always  help  available  by
  pressing the F1 key.   There is full mouse support if  you have a
  Microsoft compatible mouse driver loaded.

  NeverLock removes protection  by searching the program  files for
  the data that needs to be  changed, and then making those changes
  with no intervention from you.

  Once  the copy-protection  is removed,  you  do not  need to  use
  NeverLock again on that particular product.

  NeverLock needs 2 megabytes of free  space on your hard drive for
  its work files.  This can be any hard drive on your system.

  At the main  menu, select the product you wish  to unprotect from
  either the 'Modern  Collection' list or the  'Classic Collection'
  list.  NeverLock will then prompt you for the letter of the drive
  your product is installed on.  It  scans this drive and shows you
  a list of all the directories it found.

  Select the directory  where the product is  installed.  NeverLock
  will now display  a confirmation dialogue box  explaining exactly
  what it  thinks you  want it to  do, and giving  you a  chance to
  stop.   If  you decide  to  proceed,  NeverLock will  search  the
  directory you specified for the copy-protected files.

  NeverLock creates a work directory on your hard drive.  The first
  one  will be  called NEV_001,  and subsequent  ones are  numbered
  upward.  It copies the original files  to this work directory and
  then attempts to remove the copy-protection from the new files.

  NeverLock will now  prompt you again, offering  to exchange these
  work files for  the original files in the  product directory.  If
  you agree,  it will  perform the switch  and leave  your original
  files in  its work directory.  In  case the unprotected  files do
  not function properly, the originals are thus preserved.

  In some cases NeverLock creates a special loader file.  Watch its
  report screen carefully.  If necessary, it will tell you that you
  must start  your protected product  with  the special loader file
  instead of the normal product file.

  NeverLock monitors the whole process and presents you with a
  log file that holds:
    The name of the protected product.
    What files were copied, searched, exchanged or moved.
    Where the original files and unprotected files are located.
    A success or failure message.

  Exit NeverLock,  change to  the product  directory and  start the
  product.  If a  quiz screen appears, just enter  any answer.  The
  product will think your answer is correct and continue normally.
♀
  And that's all  there is to it.  Remember that  the altered files
  that are created by  NeverLock are for your own use  only and may
  not be  transmitted to another person  in any form.   And, except
  for  the Shareware  version which  clearly  identifies itself  as
  such,  NeverLock itself  should  not  be distributed  to  others,
  either.  See the License item on the main menu for details.

  Problem:
    NeverLock reports that 'The copy-protection has been removed',
    but the game still presents the quiz and blocks your access.
  Advice:
    Did NeverLock give this message after removing the copy-protection ?

    If you received this message then you must start your protected
    product with the special loader file created by NeverLock.

  Problem:
    The computer crashes mysteriously when you run NeverLock, or
    run the special loader file that NeverLock created.
  Advice:
    A memory resident program is causing the problem.
    Rename  your AUTOEXEC.BAT  and  CONFIG.SYS  to something  else.
    Create  a new  CONFIG.SYS  with  just one  statement  FILES=20.
    Reboot your computer and run NeverLock again.

    If you are using the screen blanker 'After Dark', remove
    'AD-DOS' from your AUTOEXEC.BAT.  Reboot your computer and run
    NeverLock again.

    QEMM in stealth mode is causing the problem. Deactivate QEMM
    stealth mode, reboot your computer and try again.

    STACKER in combination with PC-KWIK is causing the problem.  Run
    NeverLock from your uncompressed drive, or disable PC-KWIK.

    NeverLock sometimes crashes when run from Windows while
    in a 'DOS Session'.  You must run NeverLock from DOS only.

  Problem:
    'I can  only find ?,???,???  bytes  of free disk space  on your
    system.  This may not be enough space for NeverLock to copy the
    protected files.  Do you wish to continue anyway ?'
  Advice:
    NeverLock needs free disk space to hold copies of the protected
    files.   In  some cases  the  files  could  be  as large  as  2
    megabytes.  If you have 800K of free disk space, NeverLock will
    probably work  anyway.  With  less than  that, you  may get  an
    error message that a file could not be copied or exchanged.  If
♀
    the above sounds  confusing, then the best solution  is to free
    up 2 megabytes of disk space on any hard drive on your system.

  Problem:
    ' I was unable to copy all the protected files '
  Advice:
    NeverLock could  not read the  protected files from  the source
    media, or it  could not write the files to  its work directory.
    Did  the  hard drive  just  become  full  ?  Perhaps  a  memory
    resident program  is interfering.
    Rename  your AUTOEXEC.BAT  and  CONFIG.SYS  to something  else.
    Create  a new  CONFIG.SYS  with  just one  statement  FILES=20.
    Reboot your computer and run NeverLock again.

  Problem:
    ' Insufficient memory to run program '
  Advice:
    NeverLock needs about 420K of main memory.  Free up as much low
    memory as you can and then run NeverLock again.

  Problem:
    ' The file that needs to be patched is missing '
  Advice:
    NeverLock couldn't find  the target file that  it was expecting
    in the  directory you  specified.  For  most recent  games, the
    game  itself must  be installed  in  a directory  on your  hard
    drive.  Did  you select  the correct  directory when  NeverLock
    offered the list of directories on your drive ?

    The manufacturer of the game has greatly changed the game files
    that are copy-protected.  The file that needs to be unprotected
    is not present  in this version of the game.   There is nothing
    we can do by telephone to solve this problem.

  Problem:
    I could not find the bytes that must be changed.
    This may be a different form of copy-protection.
  Advice:
    The required  files were  present but  were not  what NeverLock
    expected.  If  the name of  the protected product  appears more
    than  once  on  the  Modern  Collection  list  or  the  Classic
    Collection list, try again using the next product name.

    The other  possibility is  that you are  trying to  unprotect a
    file that has  already been altered by NeverLock  or some other
    unprotect utility.  Be sure that the required file mentioned in
    the NeverLock log is actually the file that came with the game.

    Sometimes a  software manufacturer will  re-release a  game and
    change  the code  that tests  the  copy-protection.  When  this
    happens, NeverLock may report that:
      'I could not find the bytes that must be changed.'

    The  manufacturer of  the  game  has deliberately  altered  the
    critical files that are copy-protected.  NeverLock can not find
    the required pattern  of bytes.  There is nothing we  can do by
    telephone to solve this problem.

    NeverLock will be improved in the future to support new games.
    But it will not be updated for games that are older than 2 years.
