Fenrir created a new topic ' New assets diy' in the forum. 2 months ago

Replacing graphics:
Things:
Dosbox-X aka dosbox2
Win3.11 for dosboxX vhd zip from archive dot org or do it the hard way installing via floppy img
MSaccess 1.1 from winworldpc døt com/product/microsoft-access/10
Pstoedit
sourceforge døt net/projects/pstoedit/
Version 3.40 works on XP, 3.78 does not. Todo: test which is highest ver for winXP
Image magik
imagemagick døt org
....
Setup Flow:
Put win311 folder in dosboxX's folder along side it's exe
You will need to edit dosboxX's at the end of it the autoexec section
Add frist:
mount C .\win311
Add second: the lines from the autoexec from the win311 folder that is already installed previously..

path=c:\windows\;blah;blah;%path%
%path% appends the path  dosbox already set for itself, ie Z:\
...
Open dosboxx, type win. Win311 boots yes? Close win311 to get back to command prompt
Next: unzip all the msaccess images into a single folder i assume in the same place as win311 and Mount it as a harddrive,  win311 ignores ffd mounts idk why mount D F:\fml\msaccess\
Type win again.
Navigate to setup via file manager, do the thing.
Now u can use msaccess outside of dosoxx and win311, on winXP. It just wont install correctly from winxp and won't run under win311 it complains about no network...
...
The meat:
Open upic.mpd in msacess 1.1
Table photo storage
path is relative to msbob directory as root.
Flag 2 use external path\filename.WMF
Flag 4 use use external  path\filename.ANI in animation field, fill it in as seen with other ani like flames
Use file save record. Close the database else the file is locked. Load msbob, profit!
Cavants: utopia.dll creates and stores a thumbnail after frist viewing of an asset, start with fresh database when replacing for keeps.
There is no way I know to delete or repalce the photo data globs, access won't let me can't dump them, I can replace with bogus wav via insert object.
...
Tips: when testing place an object, the preview maybe false. Any wmf can be replaced, rooms, room views etc.
If you see a question mark poster the asset could not be found/invalid.
...
New assets??:
I can't find away to make or edit the ani files. Wmf is wmf adulos version, emf will not work.
Workflow: use image magik to convert to ps, PostScript, use pstoedit to convert ps to wmf adulos.
Todo:
What options fix the bounding box either for image magik out to ps, or ps in or wmf out options for pstoedit. Lastly to test an image with alpha.

Hello hello, I'm glad I found this pretty website :D

I'm doing some research on UI related stuff, and Microsoft BOB came to my attention. I'd really love to try it out in person since it could be very useful for what I'm working to.

I've been trying to start it on a virtual machine (oracle virtualbox), using Windows 95 OS, but no version seem to work. Am I doing anything wrong? Most of my issues are with .cab files, since the computer declares to not be able to read it. Is there anything I can do?

Thanks so much in advance to whoever reaches this post and tries to help me!
