Old Software I Wrote Forever Ago

Shiver Art Pack - October 1994

The earliest program I can find that I wrote. ShiverView was an ANSI viewer for DOS. It would later become RemorseView after mergers and such. There actually should be copies of this from earlier in 1994, back when it was known as ProView (before Pro merged with Shiver)... but I can't find any of that on the internet.

Since it's an ANSI viewer, I'm just including the ANSI Art Pack that it originally came in.

You'll need DOSBox to run it.

Shiver Art Pack - June 1995

This is the last version of ShiverView I wrote. It contains an easter egg that no one knew about! If you press Alt-NumLock, it'll launch a game of space invaders.

I'm including the Art Pack it orignally came in.

You'll need DOSBox to run it.

Here's a youtube video demonstrating the game:

256-Byte Fire Demo - 1996

My submission for the 1996 EFNet #coders 256-byte fire competition. It didn't win, but I still think it's pretty neat. I still have the source for this one. Download it here.

DOSBox required.

here's a youtube video demonstrating the effect:

Remorse Art Pack - May 1997

Here's the first version of RemorseView. Just like ShiverView, it also contains an easter egg. If you create a folder called "RMRS1981", and then try to open that folder in RemorseView, it will launch a game of Pac Man.

I'm including the Art Pack it orignally came in.

You'll need DOSBox to run it.

Here's a youtube video demonstrating the game:

ASCII from 1995

I used to draw ASCII. Here are the ones I could find.
