Another theory is that up until last year i did have a copy of 'The Shining' in my DVD drive for ages...   ;)

Either its 'redruM' or 'All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy' :D

However, this may be because i have, to the best of my recollection only ever upgraded my operating systems rather than installing a new ones and when the computer needed an upgrade i just swap out the HDD, To this day my HDD label  is still MSDOS 5...

 

That's a remarkable achievement, MetalMickey! I've always done what I think is advertised as the best solution, i.e. clean install.

Guys, I believe I have just come across a ridiculously easy solution to JSWED 2.3.7 freezing after being launched on W10 (after the Creators Update). It works for me, at least!

 

What you need to do, after launching the program, is to 'grab' the upper part of JSWED's window (the white stripe) with your mouse and move the program's window a little bit. It then starts responding!  :D

 

I would be interested to know if it's helped, if anyone else has stumbled upon the same problem.

Thanks,  to be honest the main reason for this is because I have a sizeable collection of MS DOS games that I have installed over the last 27 years but don't have the original disks any more. I also have a couple of MS DOS based emulators which don't seem to work on newer machines or at least not on newer machines that have never had DOS installed on them .. needless to say I am not actually using the original hard disk any more, mainly because it's capacity is only 30MB...

Has anyone had any problems playtesting any of their edited games after using the 128k conversion tool?

I'm not sure I understand the question.

 

By "the 128k conversion tool" do you mean using JSWED to upgrade from the JSW48 game engine to the JSW128 game engine?

 

I think there may be some issues there, but it would be hard to discuss them in general terms. Have you run into any particular problems?

Well one of the reasons as to why my 256 room project has been all but abandoned shelved is because i didn't begin any sort of play-testing until i was about 120 or so rooms in, then when loading it into various emulators that i have at my disposal the game loads ok but after pressing Enter to start it just crashes and resets .. i'm currently waiting on delivery of a 128+3 so i am going to try it out on that when it arrives...
