Shanghai install on hard drive
« on: March 09, 2023, 04:18:58 AM »

I dug out my A3000 and started playing games on it. One is Shanghai. About 30 yrs ago I installed it on my hard drive, the instructions were something like 'copy the floppy contents to a folder, then copy this special file to a special location'. As I recall, it wasn't factory/company instructions, more like someone figured it out and posted it on Usenet. I am not sure where my original floppy is so I can't just look at it and see what AOS directory/file was used. Any idea what file I'm looking for and where to find it?

At least for a cracked copy, it's enough to install the font into fonts: and assign shanghai: to the directory where you copied everything.
