@raphtheman Hey, if you're interested, I have a huge listing of DOS-related developer tools on my website https://theouterlinux.gitlab.io/website and in the Projects section, there is a #python script (img2qb) I made for converting modern image formats to #quickbasic DATA arrays and it also produces a "preview" image that you can use in more modern engines but would use the actual colors of the chosen SCREEN mode. And, I have #gimp color paletes for various game systems here: https://www.deviantart.com/theouterlinux/art/GIMP-color-palettes-from-retro-systems-anime-etc-760564991 #retro #dos
And no, the keyboard is not the same as what you are used to. For instance, the double-quote " character is SHIFT+2. If you need inspiration, I highly recommend watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpWoF5uVgbA and you can get a copy of ELITE on one of the original author's websites at https://iancgbell.clara.net/elite/

Here's a very cool new filter by Nick Weihs: https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=288&t=161728&p=420262#p420262 Expected to be in the 4.3 release later this year.
So how does one fit a 20 minute TED talk onto a 3.5" floppy?... The following is a very crappy video/audio version (though probably converted by Mastodon) of "Feats of memory anyone can do" by Joshua Foer on TED. For a write-up on a 46 minute video, visit the Mμse section https://theouterlinux.gitlab.io/website/Public/Articles.html on my website. For the 3.5" sized TEDTalk file (1.1MB 7z): https://theouterlinux.gitlab.io/website/Downloads/TEDTalk.webm.7z It looks and sounds like crap, but you can't say it's not possible. #Linux #opus #webm #ffmpeg #video #foss #TEDTalk

I ran out of room on the "curl txt's" part. What I meant by that is the current plan for the PsychOS installer is to have plain text files in a repo that I can easily change the contents of with git so if I ever make or find a better video in regards to a step in the setup, I can just change the text and the curl command parts in the installer will return an newer URL as opposed to having to change parts of the software, which then would also mean another PsychOS build just for that.
The current version of PsychOS uses the refractainstaller for installation, but I've been working on my own. I'm still far from finished but thought I'd share some progress. I plan on having a "Pretend Mode" so those with anxiety about installing can go through it without actually making changes. I'm also including the ability to stream online videos on different parts of the installation for better explanation of things and have it setup so I can change the video URL at any time via curl txt's.
By the way, just in case I have to say this, which I shouldn't, but Ubuntu-based systems unfortunately count as Debian-based even though I and many others would probably disagree with that. I only get four slots for poles. So if you use Ubuntu, Elementary, Mint, PopOS, etc., please don't put "Other" as your vote. "Other" is for systems like BSD, Haiku, FreeDOS, KalibriOS, and etc. Also, if it's a system people rarely every hear of or think about, feel free to leave a quick comment about it.
Anyone else starting to notice that most web developers are #Arch users? Am I the only one that sees the irony in this? You've got people using Arch because "low RAM and CPU usage" but then there are many conversations all over the place in regards to running 12+ virtual machines on a computer with a gazillion gigs of RAM when not too busy compiling software on several GPUs. How can we ever expect websites or games with low system requirements when this has become the norm among even Arch users?
