Did you check out the basic install instructions on the DosBox Wiki? They may be a bit more clear.

Here is another forum that might help.

I remember playing the original Gary Grigsby's Pacific War back in 1991 on my blazing fast Intel 386/SX-16, with 2 MB(yes, I said MB) of RAM. What a fantastic wargame that was(and still is!).

Hah! I started on a -286 based machine with only 1024 KB of RAM.




PunkReaper -> RE: Pacific war (4/14/2008 10:34:34 PM)

Ha....I started with the ZX81 with a massive 1kb of Ram.....anymore of this and it will sound like Monty Python's Four Yorkshiremen sketch

morvwilson -> RE: Pacific war (4/14/2008 11:22:40 PM)

HaHaHa!
Got you all beat!
The computer I first worked on professionally came out of a Noregian tank!
Measurements were about 4' tall, 2.5' wide and 4' deep.
Its entire memory capacity was 48K of magnetic ferrite cores. (destructive read out)
It did not have ram.
The programs were loaded from cassette tape.
If you wanted to do your own programming, you used a set of 16 toggle switches on the front panel.

The gun fire control computer on my first ship used a 400hz electric motor with a timming cam for its master clock!




PunkReaper -> RE: Pacific war (4/15/2008 3:37:23 PM)

OK you win. [;)]
The old computer mags used to come with the actual code printed out for you to input into the computer. Used to take hours de-bugging those beauties..

This is true, and it didn't help that "typos" slipped by the proof-readers (not that they would know).

I really don't miss those days anymore.

Let me guess: it was not magnetic tape, but punched paper tape




PunkReaper -> RE: Pacific war (4/15/2008 7:07:33 PM)

I remember when all we had was an abacus to run them on.

Actually , that would be me. In 1972 my High school had such a computer, and it would take up to several hours to load our favorite game---it was called "moon lander".[:D]

lol
at least your computer would play a game.
ours would not do even that.
Steve, you would prolly know the system, I worked in the Nato Seasparrow Surface Missile System.
I was active US Navy from 84-90 and sailed on the Uss Oldendorf DD972 (I have heard it is now scrapped) and the USS Nimitz CVN 68.
BTW it was magnetic cassette tape, not paper. (not quite that bad, but close!)

For those who have never heard of this missile system, it was called NATO because it was supposed to be common among all NATO ships. No new components were made, all that was done was to pull existing components from other systems and put them together. That way, it was not realy a new system and all the spare parts were already in the logistics system.
Easy on spare parts but made for some silly features.

Yeah , like when the Saratoga showed it's anti-surface capability by blasting the bridge of a escorting Turkish destroyer!I always wondered if the surface warfare developement people talked to the air warfare folks first...the Sparrow had a less than stellar reputation during the Vietnam war.
Like so many other systems , the USN has pretty much replaced it (or is replacing it) with the RAM system (Built in cooperation with the Germans) , or even earlier on some ships (like the Knox class ) by CWIS.

Was the Oldendorf scrapped? I thought she'd been sunk. It's much easier for the USN to sink ships then get all the EPA approvals to scrap them. And I think it's the way the ships would prefer , going downb in a blaze of glory , instead of cut into razor blades.




morvwilson -> RE: Pacific war (4/18/2008 4:44:47 AM)

Yeah, thats what I heard, scrapped since it could not be upgraded to verticle launch.
I think all the Knox class ships and Garcia's are gone too. Being replaced by Arliegh Burk's and Perrys (?). (Cant remember name of new FG class)
You could be right, the Oldendorf could have been sunk, not sure there.

Actually , the Perry's will probably be the last FFG's. The next small combatant will be the LCS (littorial combat ship) which will replace FF's,FFG's, MHW's and MHC's. The first two classes are Freedom and Independance. They plan on a run off, as to which ship the USN will buy. It's a "plug and play" warship, with the modular packages to full fill the mission...ASW,ASUW, mine hunting, limited amphib (Raider type ops) and all kinds of possible missions.
