DOSBox
If you like obscure, oldschool MS-Dos utilities and games, you've come to the right place!
Most programs listed here are from around 1996...back when I was extremely productive when it came to creating freeware. I kinda miss those days...although programming has become a lot easier. Back then you had to do it all by yourself...I created my own interfaces, fonts, a mouse cursor creation program which spawned ready to use C-code, a textfile creation program with color coding and even a drawing program called Spredit1 to create graphics for my software (until I found out how to read PCX files, which I created with NeoPaint). Some of my programs got published by diskmagazines and were displayed in various magazine stores.

Well, that was then.

Click on a link or an image to download the zipped installation files. Please unzip with WinZip or a similar utility.
For flawless use of the MS-Dos programs I highly recommend installation of DosBox.
Note: Most software is in the English tongue, unless stated otherwise (some are in the Dutch language).
