Emulating ALTLOAD.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.

We have tryed to remove all the bugs from this issue to make it error free
but you may still run into a 204 error. We are aware of this one and are
making efforts to remove it. If you are having problems with running 
Altered Reality you can remove QEMM as a last resort. You will not get
Mukiz this way and it will not use Altered Reality's built in EMS support.  

If you are having problems with the loader just hit a key the second it
loads to skip it.

If you are having problems with the muzik such as noise in the backround
you must lower your FILES setting in your CONFIG.SYS and remove any TSR's.

Past History:

Altered Reality really was suppost to take to its feet back in the beginning
of 1992, but due to many problems it was delayed almost a year. For all of
you that said this mag would never come out, I told you so! We are up and 
around looking better then any other vga mag that is currently out there. 

Articles Needed:

Altered Reality is looking for people to send in articles. We also are looking
for some vga artists to help out. If you think you can help in any of these
areas call The Grave <ALT WHQ> at 516.437.3323 and leave feedback to ColdSteel.

Special Thanks:

On behalf of all of us we would like to thank Purple Haze for all
there help with graphics. With out them we could not of released anything!

                - Enjoy
