DR SHRINK in DOS
« on: July 20, 2004, 12:01:41 AM »
 :-/ I just pulled our old 1988 computer out from storage and was looking through it.  I found an old "Dr Shrink"  game  that we used to play on a  floppy and I can't remember the command to get it to open.  Is there a universal command for the game? lauralee

Hi

lauralee

you must be the only one with a copy of Dr Shrink, Ive looked everywhere But i think all my 5.25s have found the way to the dump

I have used it in the 80s and agree that its very good

Whats the chance you would consider giving me a copy, I would like to again using it for prospective employees.

Thank You for your help

I still have all my old 8088XT games etc... huge mound of 5.25" and 3.5" disks squeezed into a single CD..lol
I'd try using the DIR command in DOS and see if there is a .com or .exe to execute for it. All my games are .com's and .exe's

Still looking for an old game I use to have called Barbarian that actually said "Bar-Barian" over the internal PC Speaker long before sound cards and midi..lol

    Hay i still have the program myself.  I actually still have the MS-WORD document that i typed up with all of the questions in to..  Use to hand out the question sheets and the take them home and fill them in the program and print them out for people.  If you want to i can zip it all up for you and send it if you didn't get a copy of it yet..   Funny i was actually looking through my computer backups and found this and decided to search around again for it on-line after all these yest to see if there was ever anyone who did an update to it..
