echo WELCOME TO DEEP SPACE 3-D, VERSION 4.0
echo 
echo Deep Space 3-D is distributed in three self-extracting archive files called
echo 
echo DS1of3.EXE, DS2of3.EXE, and DS3of3.EXE (with SST02.EXE if registered)
echo 
echo INSTALL.BAT is included in the DS1of3.EXE archive, but it may also have been
echo included as a separate file.
echo 
echo Since DEEP SPACE 3-D is shareware, you may have received it in various forms.
echo If you got the program from a primary source (directly from David Chandler Co.
echo or from a Shareware Distributor) it came on one high density disk (unless
echo low density was requested), with INSTALL.BAT included externally. If you got
echo it from a BBS you probably received only the three archived files. If you
echo received it from a friend, you may have received it either way, or as a
echo collection of loose files.
echo 
echo If you did not receive the program in archive form neither you nor we know
echo what you have nor what condition it is in. Send $5 to David Chandler Co.,
echo P.O. Box 309, La Verne, CA 91750 for a clean copy of the unregistered program,
echo or send $89 for a registered program, or write for a brochure.

echo EXPLANATION
echo 
echo DEEP SPACE 3-D requires a hard drive. Installation requires 4 to 5 Megabytes
echo of disk space, depending on whether SST02.EXE and DSGS.EXE are installed.
echo 
echo DEEP SPACE 3-D can be run with all files in a single directory, but this is
echo not recommended. As files are added by the user or created by the program
echo the directory can become quite cluttered. It is better to organize the files
echo into sub-directories.
echo 
echo INSTALL.BAT will create the sub-directories you need and copy the files to the
echo correct directories.

echo INSTRUCTIONS
echo ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
echo CASE 1: If you are installing from floppy drive A: and you want to create a
echo base directory called DSVER4 on hard drive C:,
echo 
echo Type: A: (Followed by a carriage return)
echo then type: INSTALL DSVER4 C: (Followed by a carriage return)
echo 
echo (Follow the same pattern if you use a different floppy drive, a different hard
echo drive, and/or a different base directory name.)
echo ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
echo CASE 2: If you got DS1of3.EXE, DS2of3.EXE, and DS3of3.EXE from a BBS, copy
echo all three files to the directory you want to use as the base directory. Move
echo to that directory. Type DS1of3, then type DS2of3, then type DS3of3 to expand
echo the archive files. Then ...
echo 
echo Type: INSTALL BBS (Followed by a carriage return)
echo 
echo (This will create the appropriate sub-directories and move the files.)
echo ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
echo (Be sure you type a colon after the drive letter and include spaces as shown)

  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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
