Flopper is a bootable-disk emulator

Filed under: category euthanized,SoftWare — Sagacious Himself @ 1:10 am

it reads a diskette image file (a file that
contains all the sectors of a floppy disk) and boots it. This way, you
can boot (and run) a bootable diskette off of your hard drive. It also
can take screenshots (pictures of the screen) and perform speed throttling
(slow the CPU down to simulate the speed of an older PC).

Flopper was created to run older bootable games (and other boot-only
programs) from the early era of IBM PC software.
