I want to release SWORD 2.30 next week. Most is finished now. I have
developed many new functions and have fixed a lot of bugs. And I want to
fix as many leftover bugs as possible. So, PLEASE test the test program
:-) The main goal is to provide FreeDOS's and Enhanced Dr-DOS's
developers a little and powerful GUI-library.
You can download the test program, compiled with SWORD 2.30 from
Both includes an UPXed exe file. Unzip it into a new directory. Use
"start.bat" to execute the program.
The first time you will be asked for some settings. If you want to test
others, just type "image -setup" or "image -setup -verbose".
1) Command Window
2) "Set Time/Date"-dialog isn't implemented
3) problems with some screensizes/colormodes.
4) Sometimes it seems to hang at startup. But please wait :-)
IMPORTANT: If the program doesn't switch into graphic mode, but exit to
command line, then type "image -setup" and try another screensize or
colormode (16M/Truecolor should always work).
PLEASE tell me all problems or things you would change! Thanks!
I am happy about any feedback!
PS: You can download a DOS un-7-zip program from
PPS: It uses an update version of GRX 2.4.7. When i will release SWORD
2.30 next week, i will also zip this updated version and make it public.
