    Your picture of C3PO is inaccurate...

    Jean-Jacques Perrey
    20th January 1929 - 4 November 2016

    I'm late on finding out about this one. Perrey is something of a forgotten pioneer in electronic music, making heavy use of the 1940s Ondioline early on and migrating to Moogs and such in later works.

    I'd excuse that the monster truck part is clearly something where the "cutting is shipping" mantra should have been applied (those levels are clearly the weakest in the whole game)


    Hey, I'm not having that, the monster truck was the best part by far. For the first minute you can already hear how much the game is wearing me down, then I find the truck and I start actually enjoying myself, a shame it was so short lived. I refer to this video, which has all the monster truck stuff in it.


    By contrast, you can hear my joy turn back to "Oh, god, more of this." when I know it's over.

    In fact, I'd have nuked the rest of the game and just released a spin-ff "Duke Nukem: Monster Truck Carnage" or some shit, would have been a fun budget game and might have brought in more money for the rest of development - likely not enough, but better than empty pockets. Would have been better than the Army Men game I proposed though.

    @Paul B; If you swap the drives around, then yeah, it still won't see the one before the twist. The BIOS can only see what you tell it to see, Plug and Play was barely a distant dream when the interface was made.

    Would I be able to run it from within Windows XP or do I need to also move booting into DOS up my list?

    You'd need DOS, or something close to it, because XP doesn't have direct hardware access. If you have a spare floppy diskette to hand, you could create a simple DOS boot disk in the Format dialog (Right click the floppy drive in My Computer - Format - Create MS-DOS Startup Disk, or something to that effect) then boot from that disk and run GSETUP from there.

    Alternately, your board might support booting from CDs or USB devices, so you can probably get a simple DOS environment running from there if you're not ready to install the real thing yet. If you have a Win98 CD-ROM you can just hammer F8 as the system tries to start from the disc and use "Safe mode Command Prompt" to get a plain command line, this method might remap your actual floppy drive to B: though, due to how the boot loader works, and you'd still need a real disk in there for GSETUP unless you wanted to modify the Windows 98 disc, because DOS can't see NTFS partitions - likely what you selected when installing XP - as that requires another utility. If your hard drive is FAT32 though, you will be able to see it from the DOS version the Windows 98 disc makes use of.

    - Crap fact; Windows 9X discs essentially contain 3 operating systems, the DOS version the OS includes (7.x), Windows 9X itself and a "Mini Windows" which is essentially a Windows 3.x which uses the setup program as a shell in place of Program Manager. The bootable CD versions contain an extra copy of DOS because they essentially mount a floppy disk image when you boot from the disc.

    Oh, an Intel board, that explains it. They loved putting these bulky old National or SMC SuperIO chips on things for whatever reason, though the FDC37C777 should support two drives. I'm sure the SE440BX supports two drives and uses the same parts, but I could be wrong because it's a while since I've been near one, given I prefer QDI / Supermicro boards from this era.

    Did you try the GSETUP program I linked? The bits to flip might still be there in the BIOS and the option is merely hidden.

    I don't think anyone made expansion cards for such a thing, even the old Multi-IO / Host Adapters were completely under BIOS control, very little logic actually exists between the floppy drive and the ISA interface. There were USB floppy drives but I have no idea how well they'd run under Win9X, I think there were parallel drives too but I doubt there was any support that late on.

    I'll try here since PM is disabled for you. Is there any chance you could put together just the flickering light code from your Confetti mod? If I run the entire code it drags down my already low framereate.

    In your LPs of Build games you used WASD + mouse, right? What keys did you assign for inventory items? In some games they conflict with WASD.

    I wanted to send you a PM, but apparently you don't accept them so i'll just say it here.
    I don't wanna fight with you. I respect ya and hot heads need not prevail in these discussions. So, no hard feelings?

    I just added in your CONfetti code to the DECAY project I have been working on for quite some time. Thanks.

    I don't know if you'll ever visit your account on here again, but I just saw you online on Yang in a locked room. Next time, KEEP IT UNLOCKED. I want to play you. ;)
