Notes:
You must have a 286 or better IBM-type computer and a VGA
card with at least 512k video memory to play this game. You must
have all the files listed in FILES.LST. If you do not have both of
these things, the game will not run. We send updates as available
to America Online, Exec-PC and other major BBSes, and zip files we
have uploaded to those services will be complete. We fervently hope
that people who download our programs will pass them along to other BBSes,
and that they will pass along the complete package, but naturally
we cannot control what happens when the programs leave our hands.
If you download this game from a local BBS and it doesn't have all
its bits, please let your sysop know, but don't bitch and moan too
hard because sysops have a rough and thankless existence. Our
complete line of games can be downloaded from Entropy Tango BBS at
512-451-3512. (See why we know about the life of a sysop?) After
all this, if you have everything the game needs and it still refuses
to run, give our tech-line a call between noon and 9 PM Central
Standard Time, at 512-451-8308. (But see below first...)


Troubleshooting:

These are our most frequently reported problems, so maybe you
can save the cost of a call by reading on.
1. Message to the effect of "Cannot load graphics..." -
You have less than the necessary 512k of video memory. We're sorry,
but we can't do a thing about this except tell you how much you'd
enjoy an upgraded vid card.
2. Screen stays black or goes messy -
Try the other .bat file to start up. This loads the universal VESA
driver and will make Gemma work just fine on those tricky accelerator
cards.
2B.This still doesn't help -
You have another VESA driver loaded. Unload it. Check AUTOEXEC.BAT
or CONFIG.SYS for the problem.
3. Your screen is totally white or the computer hangs or freezes -
You have a corrupt ZIP or are missing some necessary file. Re-download.
Our home BBS, Entropy Tango, 512-451-3512, will always have the newest
version available for download on your first login, and you'll be sure
of having the complete shareware program directly from the source.
