Emulating TFA-TRW!.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 386 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 Gravis Ultrasound hardware
  2. The song or audio file maybe missing from the program
  3. 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.

        About the Real World BBS:
Just a quick BBS-intro. It's only purpose is that you start calling the Real
World BBS regularly, and that you become aware that The Real World has
Internet available for points at a very low price, and that The Real World
is the HQ of the Dutch Demonet, AKA Dutch Scene Connection, and that The
Real World BBS is Dutch HQ for the BEST demo-net around, DGi, and, ofcourse,
that The Real World is Ground Zero/TFA's WHQ.

        About our other BBS:
Ground Zero/TFA used to have another BBS called Samsplace, but that's now
defenitly offline. Let's just 'thank' all the assholes in the scene for
that huh?

        About the New World Order Magazine:
We also have been releasing a couple of issues of the New World Order magazine.
We have decided to stop doing that. It's not giving us the satisfaction we
expected... (that's a stupid excuse huh?).
Anyway, we might occasionally release a Party Edition or similar, but there
won't be another issue with the old style/feeling...

        About Ground Zero/TFA:
We're very pissed off! Not just by all the assholes in the scene, who keep
fuckin up things for others, but also because we couldn't go to Assembly '94.
I guess we'll have to wait until the end of this year before we can meet our
friends in the scene again...
