Back in the day I had a pretty spiffy utility for putting bootsceens on 5.25 floppies running Dos 3.3

I don't remember the name of the utility. Anyone remember this? I'd like to use it again and release a few lost games.

I remember also that you could do some animated fields (scrolling and such) on the hires bootscreen. They also booted extremely fast. Seemed to aimed at the pirate community.

Some exist - I have one called Pirate's Signature.


And maybe you're also thinking of Beautiful Boot (DOS 3.3 filesystem compatible fastloader)?

Thank you! Ya... that's it. Pirates Signature.


And I also remember Beautiful Boot. I made a bunch of my own disks with this with Copy II Plus... I started with one original disk. Really cool.


Thanks again. There's also "Advance Pirates signature" on Asimov, but haven't tried it. Seeing the original after 30 years tho was a real blast tonight. Wow!
