FastFlip v2.02, 08-07-1991

- Added command line options to allow setting of the MENU, CUT and PASTE
hotkeys. See FASTFLIP.DOC.

FastFlip v2.10, 08-19-1991

- When a page was swapped, the state of the keyboard was not being
completely save/restored (i.e. CAPSLOCK,NUMLOCK,SCROLL LOCK,INSERT).

- Improved error checking and handling.

- A setup program is now included ("FFSETUP.EXE"). This program allows you
to configure FastFlip before loading it. If you run FFSETUP from a page
in FastFlip (while it is loaded), the changes will not take effect until
FastFlip is unloaded and reloaded.

NOTE: Command line toggles will override any configured settings.

- An alternate swap drive may now be configured using FFSETUP. If FastFlip
needs to swap to the disc and the primary swap drive does not have
enough free space to hold the swap file, the alternate drive will be
used instead.

- Added Previous and Next page hotkeys.

- Added display of TSR hotkeys to the "?" screen.

- Added prompts to FFSETUP.EXE to toggle application usage of EMS and XMS
memory. This allows you to configure individual pages to use/not use
EMS/XMS memory.

FastFlip v2.11, 08-21-91

- The fix for trapping the state of the keyboard (v2.10) was causing some
problems with certain types of BIOS/DOS combinations. This would cause
what appeared to be a "hang" (pressing Alt-X would almost always unhang
the system!). Fixed.

FastFlip v2.12, 09-10-91

- The delay during the opening screen for shareware versions has been
reduced from 10 seconds to 3 seconds. The request for registration that
used to pop up after 30 minutes of operation has been completly removed.
Hopefully this will remove the "Annoyware" tags that some BBS's have
placed on FastFlip.

FastFlip v2.13, 10-01-91

- A bug in NetWare PSP handling caused all files to be closed when a
page is swapped. Work-arounds from MSI should correct this.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
