The following fix will eliminiate the bothersome requirement to
insert the FOCUS "activator" diskette in the A-drive everytime you
bring FOCUS up. This change was made to a version of FOCUS
that had file dates of 05/11/84. Be sure that you verify the code
that is in place before applying this zap.

RENAME FCPCINIT.EXE FCPCINIT.XXX
DEBUG FCPCINIT.XXX
U 22AB L 5
(You should see "9A C5 02 14 02 CALL 0214:02C5" display on the screen)
E 22AB 90 90 90 90 90
W
Q
RENAME FCPCINIT.XXX FCPCINIT.EXE


That all there is to it. Have fun.

Note added 6 DEC 84
Same procedure continues to work, only 5 bytes want to no-op
are at location 0C57:23E0
What you see at that location is CALL 021C:02C5

  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/
