From mid june, the karawin.com email box receives about 30 to 40 emails per second. 99.9% are german spams due to the Sober H virus.
This is huge and despite of a good spam filter, I may loose some emails. If you don't receive an answer from me in two days, please retry it but replace the .com with .fr, but please don't bookmark this new address.
Check your computer with some good tools like http://www.safer-networking.org/ or http://www.lavasoft.de
and a good anti virus like http://www.avast.com or http://www.free-av.com
These tools are free.
Thanks

KARADOS


Load the regular version without songs kardl201.zip .

KaraDos is free.

The support of zip files is now on. The ZIK format is now supported.
Zip.exe and unzip.exe must be in the directory of karados or in the PATH search.
Read the file kgenzik.en to learn how to use zik files.
A new key in kdir.exe : q to toggle between the alphabetic sort out or the natural dos
Now you can give the arguments of kara.exe in kdir call. These arguments will be passed to kara for each call of songs.
Discover by yourself the other modifications and corrections :)

As you may have noticed, the web adress of karados has changed for a better service. Please update your bookmark.

Catalogues

In order to improve the writing of a .cat file with multiple directories, don't forget to use the default path option described in the kdir.en file.

Catalogues now supports the DOS jokers * and ? for file names

If you wrote some nice .cat files, please send them to me, They will be distributed in the next release.

Gravis Pnp

In order to use these cards, edit your autoexec.bat and config.sys, On each line with IWINIT.EXE add the parameter -bbios, then you have to execute megaem.exe before kdir.exe

AWE 32 and 64

Under Windows95, these two cards works well with the MPU401 emulation. Validate it with the awe control.
