Detailed instructions for use are in the User's Guide.
[. . . ] We recommend that extended memory be used because when using EMS memory it will only use the amount allocated in the EMS line. When using extended (XMS) memory it will use all your machines available memory. For more information on expanded(EMS) and extended(XMS) modes consult your DOS manual.
TSRS/ DEVICE DRIVERS/ DOS SHELLS
TSR stands for Terminate and Stay Resident. A TSR is a program (such as a menu program) that automatically starts up when you start up your computer from a hard drive. [. . . ] These TSR's, device drivers, or other programs such as Microsoft WindowsTM sometimes interfere with games, or take up valuable memory and system resources the game may need. With the exception of VESA drivers, we recommend that you not run any such programs, device drivers, or shells when attempting to play a game.
CHECKING THE AMOUNT OF AVAILABLE MEMORY:
Many problems occur when your machine doesn't have enough available Conventional (or Base) Memory. Although almost all machines have 640K of Conventional Memory, TSRs, Device Drivers, and other types of Memory Resident programs will reduce the amount of available base memory. · To check the amount of available base memory, type CHKDSK (this stands for Check Disk), and press ENTER. The last set of numbers, "Bytes Free", is the amount of available base memory. (Note that this number is in thousands of bytes and that 1024 bytes make up one kilobyte [K]). Check the System Requirements section of the manual; if your machine's available base memory is less than the program requires, then the problems that you are experiencing are probably related to a memory conflict. You should remove any memory resident programs to free up the memory needed. One way to accomplish this is to boot up your computer with a DOS boot disk.
DOS BOOT DISK
If you are having trouble installing your program, experiencing lockups, or other problems, we suggest you try starting up your system with a DOS Boot disk. IMPORTANT: To create a DOS boot disk you will need a blank disk the same size as your A: drive. Note: If you are formatting low density disks on a high density drive, use the following commands in place of step 3: 5. 25" low density disk: Type format a:/s /n:9 /t:40 and press ENTER. Drivers that have a . SYS extension will be loaded through the CONFIG. SYS file and you should leave that line the same when you are editing the CONFIG. SYS file. If you have other questions about loading your particular mouse driver, consult your mouse documentation or DOS manuals. Save the edited AUTOEXEC. BAT file and open the Boot Disk copy of the CONFIG. SYS file from within EDIT. To save, press Alt-F to bring down the File menu and press the "S" key. To open, press Alt-F, press the "O" key and then type "A:\CONFIG. SYS" and press the ENTER key.
6. While still in EDIT, delete all lines from the Boot Disk copy of the CONFIG. SYS file EXCEPT the following: DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM. SYS DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386. EXE NOEMS DOS=HIGH, UMB DEVICEHIGH=C:\<CD-ROM driver> <CD-ROM driver> will vary depending on your particular CD-ROM player. If your CONFIG. SYS file does not contain the last line of the above example, please consult your CD-ROM documentation. If there is a line that loads a driver for your sound card and/or your SCSI Hard Drive controller, that information should be left alone. If the HIMEM. SYS and memory manager files are not located in the DOS directory, replace DOS with the name of the directory where they are located in the first two lines of the above example. MS-DOS 6. 0 USERS: If you are using the DoubleSpace utility provided with DOS 6. 0, you will need to load the DBLSPACE. SYS device driver into high memory in order to free up additional base memory. This can be done by adding an additional line to the CONFIG. SYS file you have just created on your boot disk. [. . . ] The CONFIG. SYS file should contain the following lines: DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM. SYS DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386. EXE NOEMS DOS=HIGH, UMB DEVICEHIGH=C:\DOS\DBLSPACE. SYS /M DEVICEHIGH=C:\<CD-ROM driver> <CD-ROM driver> will vary depending on your particular CD-ROM player. If your CONFIG. SYS file does not contain the last two line of the above example, please consult your CD-ROM documentation. To Exit the Edit program, press ALT-F, then type X.
You now have a boot disk which should free up enough base memory and set up enough Extended (XMS) Memory to run the program. This boot disk bypasses the autoexec. bat and config. sys files on your hard drive and starts up your computer in as clean a DOS environment as possible. [. . . ]
