Welcome to "DOS ain't dead"! (Announce)

Thread locked

I) About

This forum evolved from a standard support forum for our customers to a very popular forum for all users running DOS-compatible operating systems on 80x86-based computers. So I hereby invite you to stay a while. :waving:

2) Users: Get help for our software.
3) Developers: Share ideas for existing or new products.
4) DOSX: Discuss DOS and low-level protected-mode programming.
5) Emulation: Running DOS in Bochs, QEMU, VirtualBox, Virtual PC, ... (no DOS window!).
6) Miscellaneous: Things that do not fit any of the other categories.
7) Sandbox: Play around with the my little forum software.

V) BBCode tags supported

BBCode is a lightweight markup language that allows you to format messages.
BBCode tags are enclosed in square braces `[' and `]' surrounding a keyword.
So you have to replace all curly braces `{' and `}' to make those tags working in your messages.
(I'm using curly braces here to disable their parsing by the forum software.)

A short list including examples:
* {b}bolded text{/b} = bolded text
* {i}italicized text{/i} = italicized text
* {u}underlined text{/u} = underlined text
* {d}deleted text{/d} = deleted text

* {code}monospaced text{/code} = monospaced text

* {link}{/link} =
* {link=}Google{/link} = Google
* {url} same as {link}
* {url=} same as {link=}
* {msg=1}Welcome to our support forum!{/msg} = Welcome to our support forum!

* {img}img/homepage.gif{/img} = [image]
