Welcome to the Hornet Mods CDROM!
This CDROM contains 726 songs, 73 music disks, and 31 utilities. All of
these files were cataloged on the Hornet Archive (hornet.org) between the
May 27 22:41:10 and Sep 01 21:31:23
Also included are all Music Contest entries.
The modules come in the following formats:

The music disks are all in .zip format. View and Winview will
automatically extract these for you. Some of the music disks come with
custom players. In many cases, you can use the default players we have
supplied with our View/Winview browsers to play the songs directly.
The programs are provided as-is, use at your own risk. We (Walnut
Creek CDROM) can not provide support for these utilities. If you have
problems, you should contact the author of the program (an email address
is usually included with these things).
If you get the error "Can't find mfc40.dll" while trying to use either
Mikit for Windows or Midas '95, please copy \utils\mfc40.dll from this
CDROM to your \windows\system directory.
