People, only post after following this advice. If it doesn't work afterwards, then post here.

BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT THE FORUMS FILLED WITH FRIGGIN' SPAM FROM IDIOTS LOOKING FOR THE ANSWER TO QUESTIONS THAT ARE ANSWERED HERE, THAT'S WHY.

Very cooth and suddle as always, I notice...

The reason why we care is that we dislike having people posting questions that have already been answered as that just means we have to give the same answer over and over. That would waste space. So, instead we decided to have a 'read before you post' thread to answer your questions thus making it so that some of the time we can solve your problem before you post it! It matters a great deal to some people.

Oh yeah, and make sure you put a relevant topic title for you post, not something like "new guy needs help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111" because then we don't know what the hell you're talking about.

If you're running Windows XP/2000/NT or can't seem to get the game to run at all in Windows, and have already followed the above tips, you may want to try dosbox before posting here. dosbox is a hardware/software emulator that essentially emulates a computer the speed of a 386 running DOS and may be your only option with incompatible machines. It can be found on the <html><a href=http://www.dosgames.com/essential.php> Essential Utilities</a></html> page of www.dosgames.com .

Lots of (helpful) stuff about getting games to work on XP and late generation OSs.
Why not a stickied post on ME and other middling systems? Something explaining EMS and "base memory" and so on. :cry:

Hey, that's not actually a bad idea. I'll throw that out.
