HOLMESFiX (The Lost Files Of Sherlock Holmes patch) v. 28102001 (28/10/2001, Martin Kiewitz) Readme/What's new
============================ Martin Kiewitz's HOLMESFiX ============================ Released on 28.10.2001 Written and (c) by Martin Kiewitz Special Thanx to Daniel Caetano Dedicated to Maryse and Gerd Kiewitz ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This software is 'e-mail ware'. This means, if you use it, please send me an e-mail or a greeting card. I just want to see, how much people are using it. ============ | FOREWORD | ============ Well. This is a patcher for 'The Lost Files Of Sherlock Holmes'. A really nice adventure game from Electronic Arts. We got 2 bugs in here. The 1st one is our beloved Soundblaster-delay bug. The 2nd is something really special. The coders didnt know ANYTHING about doing an IRQ-routine, so they guessed how everything works. Well. THEY GUESSED WRONG. Under WinDos it works. Why ? Because the WinDos Dos-Box is inaccurate. Normally you have to ack an IRQ *one* time. And this means *JUST ONCE*. The WinDos Dos-Box ignores this...not so the OS/2 VDM." The coder's guessed routine just acks *any* IRQ, even if it does not process it. I just fixed those bugs, now it works perfectly using OS/2 Warp / eCS. =========== | CONTACT | =========== There are several ways to contact me. All-time favourite is my e-mail adresse 'kiewitz@fuckMicrosoft.com'. Well, you can use 'martin@kiewitz.de' or 'kiewitz@netlabs.org' as well. OS/2 World has some content of mine. Look at: http://www.os2world.com/games Or you may visit my own private homepage. Surf to: http://www.kiewitz.de ========================== | GREETZ AND DEDICATIONS | ========================== I dedicated HOLMESFiX to 2 different people. Maryse is a really great (half-french) girl and I like her a lot. Gerd Kiewitz is my father, he died some time ago :( I will never stop loving him. - No Greetz this time, sorry - - Martin Kiewitz
