Restart in Dos, Run Dos game...maybe a batch file???
Posted on 2004-10-31
I want to be able to restart my computer in Ms Dos mode and have it automatically start up a game that needs to be run. Right now I have written a batch file that I can run (bth.bat) after I restart in Ms Dos by typing in bth at the command prompt. The batch file also loads a dos mouse driver. Its a very simple batch file...ie
I just type in bth (the name of the batch file) at the command prompt and that loads the mouse driver then changes the directory to the bth directory then runs bth (the game)
What I want to do is just be able to click on an icon while windows is running and have it restart in dos and do all that for me without having to manually restart in dos mode then typing in bth at the command prompt. I have tried running the game from windows but it does not work properly and there is no mouse.
I don't necessarily have to use a batch file, that's just the only way I know to do it at the moment.
Anyone know how I can do what I want to do.
Thanks and Cheers,
