"Eternal Shell" DOSBox Patch
©Copyright 1996-1997, TeamTNT, Team Eternal - All rights reserved
This archive contains an unofficial patched executable for the frontend menu
utility "Eternal Shell" that was included with TeamTNT / Team Eternal's
"Eternal DOOM III" to allow the shell to function properly when using DOSBox to
run the game.
The Eternal Shell creates the standard DOS batch file "RUNET.BAT" on the fly
for actually running the game. Some of the commands contained in the batch file
include the "|" character, which DOSBox doesn't seem to like.
This patch simply changes the following runtime lines contained in the Eternal
Shell excecutable "ESHELL.EXE" from:
@ECHO | %s%s\DOOM2 @ETERNAL.RSP
@ECHO | DOOM2 @%s%s\ETERNAL.RSP
...viola, problem fixed!
Included in this archive are the files "ESHELL.ORI" and "ESHELL.BOX".
"ESHELL.ORI" is the original undedited Eternal Shell executable (for backup
purposes), and "ESHELL.BOX" is the patched executable.
To install, simply copy the files to the directory on your hard drive where
Eternal DOOM III is installed, and then copy the file "ESHELL.BOX" to the
filename "ESHELL.EXE" (overwriting the existing file).
