  • DOS LCD TSR

    I've got a DOS system in my trunk kicking out some tunes. I'm looking into purchasing an LCD character display to have something viewable up front, nothing is there now. My DOS box runs mpxplay to play the mp3s and a program that I wrote myself in pascal serves as a beautiful front end.

    Anybody know of a DOS TSR that you can give arguments as xy positions on the screen and it displays those on the LCD screen whenever they show up on the screen?

    It's either this or install winme on it and boot slowly with my p200. Thank you for your help, I'll be around.

    A while back, I hammered out a customised unoffical version of MPXF's tsr. http://www.triwest.net/~brent/download/mpxf144u.zip

    In this custom version, the %z command has been modified to the following syntax:
    %zxxyyll

    For example, %z701303 would tell it to display a total of three characters starting at position 70,13

    It requires MPXPlay 1.44, and a stacks=18,512 in the config.sys

    Other options:
    MPXF 1.4 - http://www.radioactivesoft.com
    Requires MPXPlay 1.42, achieves similar funtionality by using the %z command in a different way. Probably less buggy than my customized version of MPXF.

    MLT - http://www.multimania.com/screamers/mlt/

    If all else fails you could write your own tsr from scratch. TSR's are certainly do-able in Turbo Pascal.

      thank you, that is exactly what I was looking for. I like the way MLT is set up, and really it has everything exactly that I wanted for mpxplay, except a bigger equalizer, but I can live with that, and for my own front end proggie I'll use your hack and the %z, should work...

      On another note, where can I find a sub-$40 40x4 char display already assembled and with an LPT connector on it?.. I don't wanna do any of that wiring myself.
