    Solved out how to get DOS programs working with ease - just added a new context menu item which loads DOSbox directly.



    Now I can try out DOS programs quicker and without much fuss.

    I think vexatious's account has been hacked by a bot and is now spewing unintelligible nonsense.

    No, it still seems to be him. Maybe he will realize none of us speak Japanese or care to learn.

    Ran it through Google Translate and still don't get it. There is no version of Firewire that worked with DOS/Win 3.x

    Uh, that's not Japanese. Just nonsense that looks like Japanese. Forum spam. Either it's a bot or he's gone crazy.

    I went back and looked at his past posts...they seem to now all start with some variation of "maybe I shouldnt say..." or "cant say but" with some odd syntax but they are talking about the topics. It doesnt look like bot language though. The IP is masked by his use of the built in Opera browser VPN.

    He is not a native english speaker here: https://www.sega-16.com/forum/showth...can-users-join

    I am beginning to wonder if this account was some sophisticated talk bot all along. Even in the gobbledegook Japanese though he is still starting every post with: "だんわない の ちっと" I'm sorry, but...

    I went back and looked at his posts and they have weird syntax but relate to real retro game and retro game dev websites. Who else wants to try cracking this mystery?

    LOL I have no idea what moomins are, but still got it

    On-topic; Maybe try the Johnny Castaway screensaver from 1992 by Sierra? It was branded as "the world's first story-telling screen saver" and looks really fun in my opinion.

    Now I'm sad that we never got a comfy Japanese platformer for the Genesis based on the Moomins.
