If there is interest, I may package this up in some way so that others can use it. It is or at least was open source. What we have here is a program launcher of sorts for dos. It can do 1280x1024 x256 colors on any computer with vga (or dosbox of course) I know there is some type of program launcher frontend for dosbox, but I still kind of prefer this. Here we see the Dos gui desktop at 1280x1024 on my vector linux desktop, which is 1600x1200. www.subcultureproductions.com/linux/cap1.jpg
Next we see the dos desktop full screen... I realize the icons look boxy, but I'm not sure the icon format supports transparent backgrounds so...www.subcultureproductions.com/linux/cap2.jpg
Next we see the desktop again, but a bit cleaner I suppose. The background image can be scaled. www.subcultureproductions.com/linux/cap3.jpg
Next, a bit darker or grungier, but cool...http://www.subcultureproductions.com/linux/cap5.jpg
Icons can be made any size I suppose, Fonts, background image can be changed. You can create, delete or move
icons however you like. Screen res can be changed, and so on. Interesting anyway... Let me know what you think.
Not bad for basic programming...
