1. Diskcopy the original disk to another floppy or copy the
files to a hard disk.

2. Rename TANK.EXE, type RENAME TANK.EXE TANK.XXX

3. Rename INSTALL.EXE, type RENAME INSTALL.EXE INSTALL.XXX

4. Type DEBUG TANK.XXX and press ENTER

5. At the - prompt, type R . Look for the value in the DS register
(left-hand column of the second line of the R display).


6. Add 1000 to that DS value. i.e. if the R display showed DS=0D5F
then you will use 1D5F. I will refer to this value later as xxxx.
Add 2000 to the original DS value (i.e.if DS=0D5F, it is now 2D5F).
I will refer to this later as yyyy.

7. Check that your version is the same. Type the following:

U xxxx:91F9 and press ENTER

You should see JZ 91FE on the first line of the display. If so, this
patch should work.

9. Type E yyyy:31C B8 00 00 90 Enter
10. Type E xxxx:91F9 EB 03 Enter

13. Type Q to exit DEBUG.

14. Rename TANK back to it's original name RENAME TANK.XXX TANK.EXE

15. At DOS, type DEBUG INSTALL.XXX

16. Check the version to make sure this will work. Type

U 2D01 and press Enter. You should see JZ 2D06 on the first line.

17. If ok, then type E 2D01 EB 03 Enter
18. Type E 2D1A EB 03 Enter
19. Type E 50D9 90 90 Enter
20. Type E 50DC B8 00 00 90 Enter

21. To save the changes, type W

22. To quit DEBUG, type Q

23. Rename INSTALL back to original name RENAME INSTALL.XXX INSTALL.EXE

That's it. The original floppy is no longer needed. you may copy the
TANK files to a hard disk, network or other floppy with normal DOS
commands.

  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/
