It's really broken, as it tries to read numbers, then throws it into window, and read joystick instead. Two solutions:

1. Comment out joystick call.
2. Emulate joystick.

In both cases you need to set cycles on 1000 or lower in DOSBox and run it through qbasic.

I packed both versions (without or with joystick) for you.

It's from TDC actually.

Short answer is "no". Long is... well, too long, and irrelevant to this forum anyway.

Your answer is understandable, but not very clear. Careful reading would be necessary for a better understanding...
