The fastest way to correct the majority of all problems with our games is to make a boot disk. The main function of a boot disk is to configure your system optimally for a specific application or game. The boot disk removes any applications or programs that might conflict with the game and optimally configures the memory to meet the game's requirements. Creating a boot disk will not alter the startup files on your hard drive. To restore your system to "normal", simply remove the boot disk and restart your computer.

The boot disk making utility included with of our games is intended to make the creation and use of a boot disk easy to accomplish with a minimum of fuss. Unfortunately, since everyone's systems are not exactly the same, a degree of "tinkering" is required from time to time.

If Windows 95 is preinstalled on your system, the DOS drivers (CD-ROM drive, video card, mouse, and sound card.) may not be present. Please contact your computer manufacturer for the DOS drivers for the hardware stated above and then add these new drivers to the boot disk.
