Epic NTVDM

Some have suggested the creation of a topic like Epic Win, but for DOS/NTVDM apps to make room for Windows apps. I'm going to attempt to do it right here right now.

Mind explaining, I'm a bit confused. The only tests here followed the epic win rules. Maybe too much? Sorry if that is the case; I have a bunch a stress and this is a way I coupe.
Yes , I wondered what he was on about, because this is the 'EPIC WIN!' topic. I think he is suggesting something else! The 'EPIC WIN!' topic is now very full (58 pages), maybe it is time to make a topic dedicated to dos and/or ntvdm!

The rules follow Epic Win's own except these are DOS/NTVDM only apps.

I will remind the rules of this thread, which are the same to my Epic Win thread:

Happy winning! :D

It does. I have games which only work from a batch file included.

I'm not sure I understand the problem with the bat files.

Environment variable semantics are different between interactive and batch mode.

I guess what MugenFighter want to say is that if you execute a batch file instead of the program, the console window gets the cmd icon instead of the ntvdm icon, so it may look like it
is not a DOS program but a program for Windows.

My concern was with text based programs or ones that used ascii graphics, but forget I said anything.

Thanks, some people like to do certain things when they are bored... right now I like testing software for ReactOS, and DOS software actually tends to be smaller and relatively easy to come across, and a lot of it you can obtain legally.

Champ Kong Update: Last time I used a shareware version, now I used the lasted full version and it worked (the company, which is out of business, allowed it to be downloaded from the website I got it from)

Edit: This version of Champ Kong was the full version 1.15, ReactOS revision 69922, and on emulated hardware.
