Hands up if you remember THIS:

Yup, it's still there, and even still being developed — version 20.4.11 come out a few weeks ago. For the most part, it's still the same program as back in the old days, too (the version I used was 18.2). *s*

It's working pretty well under DOSBox, BTW. Graphical glitches can be avoided by passing TEXTSAFE=save as an option, e.g. on the command line. If you're not familiar with DOSBox configuration, I recommend D-Fend Reloaded.

Wikipedia has more info, too, for those not in the know.

Never seen it - but might have to check it out. I have DOSbox portable on my thumbdrive ;)

It's quite neat. ^.^ Definitely showing its age, of course, but it's still a very interesting program to toy with, with lots of interesting options.

Of course, if you run it in DOSBox, the downside to that is that it'll run at DOSBox speeds, too. :P

Wow, I remember this all too well! It's been ages since I played around with it. I might have to grab it again soon :)
