echo This is a brief demo of the IBM digitized sound package.
echo First I will play a few brief sound files. All of these sound
echo files have been compressed with an audio compression utility.
echo This audio compression utility is included when you purchase
echo the digitized sound package.
echo The sound drivers for Tandy, Sound Blaster, Adlib, and Covox,
echo all do crisp clear 8 bit quality sound (6 bit for Adlib), in the
echo background, leaving the computer free to perform other tasks,
echo (like playing a game), in the foreground. Owners of the digitized
echo sound package will be eligible for inexpensive upgrades as improvements
echo and support for other audio systems are incorporated in the future.
echo A reasonable liscensing fee is required for commercial software
echo publishers who wish to incorporate these drivers into their products.
echo Private owners can add any variety of sound effects and capabilities
echo to their MS-DOS machines simply by using a batch file like this one.
echo PLANE.BIT........Look out overhead!
play plane.bit
echo SPOCK.BIT........How logical, don't you think?
play spock.bit 9600
echo SAW.BIT..........Oh, that old saw.

echo WHALE.BIT........Ought to get that whale back to the future, hey? (688)

echo SONAR1.BIT.......Clear your baffles, quick! (688 Attack Sub)

echo SYSTEM9.BIT......You were toasted dude! (688 Attack Sub)

echo Wrimage is a word game for the IBM PC and compatibles. You need a color
echo monitor to play this game. This version of Wrimage has been enhanced with
echo the very digitized sound drivers contained in this demo. It works as an
echo excellent example of how much more fun using a computer can be when you
echo use sound.
echo HOW TO PLAY WRIMAGE:
echo Wrimage allows 1-4 players the opportunity to compete at figuring out a
echo hidden word. Word scoring is based on letter scores similiar to Scrabble.
echo The more letters missing from a word when you spell it correctly the higher
echo score you gain. Guesing letters incorrectly causes your score to decrease.
echo The first player to score 70 points (indicated by your blue lifeline) wins.
echo At each turn a player is given 3 letters to choose from. One of the three
echo letters is guarenteed to be in the word. However if one letter has already
echo been selected, then you have effectively only two letters to choose from
echo and there is no guarentee that one of the other two letters is in the word.
echo When you choose a letter correctly every place that letter appears in the
echo word will be filled in and your score will be advanced by the value of
echo that letter for each occurance. If the letter you selected is not in the
echo word then you lose your turn and it advances to the next player. As long
echo as you are guessing letters correctly it remains your turn. Whenever you
echo think you know the word and it is your turn you may choose spell. Be
echo carefull because if you spell the word wrong you will lose both your
echo turn and points.
pause
cls
echo This version of Wrimage has only 130 words in it. This is plenty of
echo words to find out whether or not you like the game. If you send in
echo for the complete digitized sound package you will also receive the
echo official Wrimage word list which contains 3,000 words! This version
echo of Wrimage also contains many more sound effects than the ones in this
echo free demonstration package.
echo In discussing putting out this digitized sound package I have had some
echo friends suggest that I do a small game that takes advantage of these
echo sound drivers. I hope you enjoy playing Wrimage and order the complete
echo digitized sound package as soon as possible.
echo Thankyou, John W. Ratciff.

  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/
