    SkyNET Mouse Helper

    You shouldn't have to enter any DOS commands with the "create shortcut" option if you supply the path to skynet.exe/shock.exe. The shortcut will launch the helper, which will launch DOSBox, which will launch the game. It's supposed to launch the game without any interaction from the user, just like a frontend like AmpShell. Yeah, admittedly, getting it to work with a frontend like AmpShell might be tricky, if not impossible. If you can't figure something out and aren't willing to use a regular desktop shortcut to launch the game, then it's probably not for you. Sorry.

    SkyNET Mouse Helper

    I'm not familiar with AmpShell (beyond seeing that it's a DOSBox frontend), but I did make it so that you can run the helper automatically with the game. When you run the helper, there's a "Create shortcut" button that helps you do that. That creates a desktop shortcut that basically looks like "SkyNETMouseHelper.exe DOSBox.exe Skynet.exe", which launches the helper, which then launches DOSBox, which then launches the game. If AmpShell is really flexible, maybe you can make the game's icon in that launch the helper with those parameters. If not, then you may just have to live with using a desk
  3. No need to apologize. I didn't take you for being grouchy and actually appreciated that you were as polite as you were. Not everyone is :).
  4. The .reg file that you imported shouldn't mess up the registry. It only removes entries specific to JK that should be added back when you re-install the game. Maybe the other files were the problem. Try uninstalling the game again, deleting your Jedi Knight game folder and then re-installing the game. Note that the game may still not run, not because of this wrapper or its settings or files, but simply because the game isn't very compatible with modern Windows out of the box and you may've forgotten what you did to get it running in the first place. I advise you to use my JK "unofficial patche
  5. It's a false positive, yeah. I just ran Malwarebytes on it to be sure, though. Still, to give you and others peace of mind and, especially, to help prevent it from being quarantined, I've just uploaded a new version (1.2) that doesn't get flagged as suspicious by Windows Defender (and some other AV engines).
  6. The download link has been fixed by the administrator. Thanks for pointing it out, aclx2, or else I might not have known to contact him.
  7. Edit: There was originally an issue above that I couldn't fix and had to mention, but I've since been able to fix it.

    Tomb Raider Mouse Helper v1.2 for Tomb Raider 1-5 (1996-2000) by Core Design This Windows utility for the first five Tomb Raider games (I, II, III, The Last Revelation and Chronicles) runs in the background and provides mouse control in those games by converting mouse movements into key presses. This allows you to move the mouse to turn left and right and, while holding the right mouse button, look all around. It also enables firing with the left button, drawing weapons with the middle button and easily setting up WASD or ESDF control schemes. Features: Move

    Syndicate Plus patch for FreeSynd This replacement file allows FreeSynd to work with Syndicate Plus. FreeSynd is a cross-platform, re-implementation of the game that allows for playing it natively in Windows/Linux (i.e. without DOSBox) as long as you have the game's original data files. Note that FreeSynd doesn't currently support playing the expansion pack ("Plus") missions. Even with this patch, you will be able to play only the game's original missions. Also, FreeSynd might eventually be updated to support Syndicate Plus, in which case this patch will probably no longer be neces

    Pre-patched Unofficial Patches for Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II & Mysteries of the Sith (1997-98) by LucasArts This is a bundle and re-upload of the "Unofficial Patch" executables for Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II and its expansion, Mysteries of the Sith. The unofficial patches improve compatibility with modern Windows, add team chat in multiplayer and are required for some mods (particularly Jedi Knight Enhanced and Jedi Knight Retexture Pack). Most users choosing to play these games on modern Windows will want to use these. These are the pre-patched versions, mean

    SkyNET Mouse Helper v1.2 for The Terminator: SkyNET (1996) and The Terminator: Future Shock (1995) by Bethesda Softworks This Windows utility allows for cycling weapons with the mouse wheel in SkyNET and Future Shock when played in DOSBox under Windows. It runs in the background while you're playing and maps the mouse wheel to its own next and previous weapon functions (because neither game has them). It's been tailored specifically for these two games and, despite the name, works with Future Shock even when it's played outside of SkyNET. Features: * Scro

    Outlaws Mouse Helper v1.2 for Outlaws (1997) by LucasArts This utility for Outlaws allows for cycling weapons with the mouse wheel and using the mouse for a few other functions. It runs in the background while you're playing and maps the game's built-in keyboard commands to the mouse wheel and right and middle mouse buttons, helping you to make greater use of the mouse and less use of keyboard commands. Features: * Scroll the mouse wheel up/down to change weapons. * Middle click to toggle the rifle scope (once acquired). * Hold Q while scrolling

It runs in the background while you're playing and maps the game's built-in keyboard commands to the right and middle mouse buttons and the mouse wheel. This allows you to give context sensitive orders with the mouse buttons (like in more modern RTSes) instead of using keyboard commands or mousing over to the command bar. It also allows for scrolling the map with both the mouse whee

    SkyNET Unofficial Patch 2017 SkyNET (aka The Terminator: SkyNET) is Bethesda's 1996 sequel to The Terminator: Future Shock, a Quake-like game set in the Terminator universe. This is an all-in-one patch which includes every known fix and improvement for the game. This patch: Updates the game to v1.01. Allows for playing entirely from the hard drive. Starts the game with 640x480 (SVGA) mode enabled. Fixes crashes at the start of gameplay (aka the "SVGA fix"). Fixes crashes when entering buildings (aka the "door fix"). Credit to ripsaw808

    Repeating Music Patch v1.1 for The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Serrated Scalpel (1992, DOS) Background: The game ordinarily plays most pieces of music only once per location. After each one finishes, no more music plays until you leave the location. Because most of the pieces are about only a minute long, the gamer is liable to end up playing much of the game in silence. When Mythos Software ported the game to the 3DO a few years later, they made the music repeat, but never patched the DOS version. Description: This patch makes the

    Strike Commander CD Missile Fix This patched version of Strike Commander's Strike.exe fixes an issue with missiles being less effective than they should be because enemy planes evade them more often than they should. This issue seems to be due to the higher number of CPU cycles in modern machines and emulators giving enemy planes higher-than-designed reaction times to deploy counter measures. It can be avoided by lowering the CPU cycles (to roughly 10,000) to simulate the performance of mid-90s hardware, but that results in the choppy gameplay that the game had back then. This patch allows

    High Detail Mod v1.2 for Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II & Mysteries of the Sith (1997-98) by LucasArts This mod disables unsightly mipmapping and LOD (levels of detail) in all levels of each game. That's when textures and models are blurry and blocky, respectively, at a distance and "pop" to higher quality versions as you get near. That was originally done to achieve good performance on 1997 hardware, but is unnecessary today. This doesn't add or replace anything in the game. It simply makes the game use the highest quality textures and models at all times and never

    Music Wrapper v1.2 for Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II and Mysteries of the Sith (1997-98) by LucasArts This package bundles the best wrappers and known fixes to help get music working in both games. For reference, both games used CD Audio for their music tracks. The modern, CD-less solution, used by resellers like GOG and Steam, is to rip the tracks to .ogg files and then supply a wrapper (a special .dll file) to translate the game's calls to play the CD tracks into calls to play the .ogg files from the hard drive, instead. Unfortunately, with newer builds of Windows th
