Helper software for MPDOS
in Nostalgia | Thursday, August 07, 2014 | 20:02

As MPDOS works even in Win3.11 it only supports short filenames, which can be a really pain in the neck since long filename are with the ~ all over the place and trying to make out any human readable filename is almost impossible!!

In order to make the MPDOS experience more user friendly I created a software that will automatically convert a chosen filename via a nice filebrowser to short filename instantly.

Just click on the long filename in the listview and it will automatically be copied into the clipboard. At this point you just simply "paste" the short filename into MPDOS's file requester and click OK to load it.

My software can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of page.

That's it. It works great and I watch a lot of demos, play games using the MPDOS approach.
