heads, I’m trying to find a copy of a 1980s DOS productivity app called Open Access. Anyone have a copy or disk images lying around?

@thomasfuchs And I’ve been trying to find a certain USA civil war DOS shareware game, Zork ASCII style, whose name I can’t remember, but which had the terribly fun feature of creating custom maps.

@thomasfuchs By Jove, I think the Civil War Battleset listed herein may be it. I’ll give it a crack later. Thanks heaps, I’ve been pondering that one a long time...

@thomasfuchs I'll have a look in the old software archives at work tomorrow. I never know what'll turn up there.

@thomasfuchs Found something! Working on cobbling together a rig to image the disks, haven't dealt with the 5 1/4" floppies in a while.

@thomasfuchs See if this works for you:

I've included both rawread images and folders of files for the six 360k disks, plus a png of disk 1. They seemed to work for me on bare metal and in Boxer.

I had a great time getting this PC in order and hope to image more software from the archives soon. Enjoy!

@drewzero1 thank you again! Works in dosbox, I’m waiting for a delivery so I can write back the disk images on real diskettes and try in my 1981 IBM PC!! 🤓👍🤞
