  • Zip / DOS   ANSI tool

Emulating ULTANSI.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 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
Emulation too fast?
Set the emulator to use the 8086 CPU 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 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.

Instructions for "The Ultimate Ansi Editor V1.10(BETA)

* * Introduction and Purpose * *

   After growing very tired of it being nearly impossible to
create multi page ansi documents with most avaiable ansi
editors, and none of them supporting WWIVAnsi, I decided to
write a ansi editor that would include everything.

   In the beta test version it contains hardly everything,
but rather only the parts which I considered the most
challenging to program, namely the scrolling ansi buffer and
the ANSI and WWIV ansi interruption.  At this point the
program is exactly one week old, and during the next week I
will be adding such things as cut and paste, and more support
for the way WWIV stores its ansi files(ie B&W, ANS,MSG).


    Unlike most ansi editors you absolutely do not have to
have your ANSI.SYS file installed.  The program understands
ANSI and WWIVansi with out any external help.

Running the program.

Once executed you will see two title screens, then you will
enter the main program.  Once inside the program you will be
able to move the hi-lighted part of the top bar and select
several pull down windows(NOTE: Mouse support is not setup
yet, as well as a few of the items on the top bar).  To begin
drawing simply hit your escape key and you will be in drawing
mode.  Hitting your escape key again brings you right back to
the top bar control.  Use your escape key to toggle between
these two modes.


ALT-F: Change the color you are drawing with
ALT-B: Change the current background color
ALT-L: Load an ANSI or WWIVansi graphic
ALT-S: Save from beginning to current location
ALT-H: On-Line Help
ALT-C: Clear screen, and start over

<F1-F8> Display Graphic Characters
<F9-F10> Select Graphics Set
