Red Baron PC Box Cover (1990) Red Baron Joystick View Driver V1.10

Developer: Bob Church (Website)
Publisher: Bob Church (Website)
File Name: rbstik.zip
File Type: Utilities
File Version: 1.10
File Release: 06-Nov-1993
File Size: 20 kB
Compatibility:

The RBSTICK drivers are TSR programs which adds view control to the analog throttle support to Red Baron with the Mission Builder option installed.

RB1STICK.COM was intended for use with a single joystick. It alters the action of button #2 so that when it is pressed, the UP view (F5) is active. When button #2 is released, the FORWARD view, (F1) is active. It disables the normal action of button #2, so external views must be accessed via the keyboard ENTER key.

RB2STICK.COM was intended for use with a dual joystick setup. It places the UP/FORWARD view switching on button #1 of joystick 2. Joystick 1 functions are not altered.

Both drivers provide analog throttle support for the normal throttle stick input (Y-Axis on stick 2).

The programs are TSRs which are run prior to running the simulator. After Red Baron has finished running, the program can be unloaded. Typically, a .BAT file used to run Red Baron is written to include the load and unload commands.

NOTE: THIS VERSION DOESN'T WORK WITH THE CD VERSION OF RB. YOU WILL NEED RBCD.ZIP WITH IT FOR THE CD VERSION

SYSTEM SPEED UTILITIES

Red Baron PC Box Cover (1990) Slowdown 1.01

Developer: Bret Johnson
Publisher: Bret Johnson
File Name: slowdown101.zip
File Type: Utilities
File Version: -
File Release: -
File Size: 10 kB
Compatibility:

SLOWDOWN is a program that temporarily "slows down" your computer so that you can run programs that require a slower computer (usually, a 4.77 MHz PC/XT or an 8 MHz PC/AT). There are many very good, useful programs (especially games and typing tutors) that were designed to run on these old, "slow" computers, and these programs do not run correctly on a newer, faster computer. You can't even buy XT's and AT's anymore, but, fortunately, with SLOWDOWN you may still be able to use the programs.
