ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS


QUESTION: I get the message "VGA Monitor required." when I try to
run Redhook's Revenge. What I do?

ANSWER: Your IBM compatible PC doesn't have a VGA monitor. If
you want to run Redhook's Revenge, you will have to go
to a computer store to see it run. Maybe you'll decide
that it's time to get a new computer!


QUESTION: Can I run Redhook's Revenge from a floppy drive?

ANSWER: Yes, by entering the command REDHOOK, but the game will
run slower than it would on a hard drive.


QUESTION: How do I install Redhook's Revenge to my hard drive?

ANSWER: We have provided a simple installation program so that
you can install Redhook's Revenge to your hard drive:
1. Insert the diskette into the floppy drive.
2. Type A:INSTALL (or B:INSTALL) then press [Enter].
3. Follow the instructions as they appear on your
screen. You can install it to any directory that you
want to, but for the purposes of this documentation,
we assume that you will install it to C:\REDHOOK.


QUESTION: My mouse works in Microsoft Windows, why doesn't it work
in Redhook's Revenge?

ANSWER: Windows has special built-in drivers to support mice.
Our software looks for a Microsoft compatible mouse
driver which is loaded when you turn on your computer.
A diskette should have come with your mouse which
contains MOUSE.SYS, MOUSE.COM or similar files. Try
placing the command DEVICE = MOUSE.SYS in your
CONFIG.SYS file or the command MOUSE.COM in your
AUTOEXEC.BAT file. These are the files that DOS
executes when you turn on your computer, and if your
mouse is Microsoft compatible, your mouse should now
work.




QUESTION: Can Redhook's Revenge be run under Microsoft Windows?

ANSWER: Yes, although it is not a Windows product. Here's how:
1. In the Program Manager press the ALT-F for the "Files
Menu".
2. Press N for "New".
3. Select "Program Item".
4. Under "Description" enter Redhook.
5. Under "Command Line" enter \REDHOOK\REDHOOK.PIF.
6. Press the "Change Icon" button and when it prompts for
the file name enter \REDHOOK\REDHOOK.ICO then press OK.


QUESTION: I get the message "Not enough memory" and my program
doesn't run. What can I do?

ANSWER: You need a computer with at least 640K memory to run
our software. Run the CHKDSK command to make sure that
you have "655360 total bytes memory". The last line
tells you how many bytes your computer has free. If
your computer has less than 560000 bytes free, a
program loaded in your CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT file
is taking up memory. Locate a knowledgeable person and
ask him/her to help you get these programs out of your
memory. If you have a 286 or 386 computer and 1
megabyte of memory or more, you can free additional
memory by upgrading to DOS 5.0.


QUESTION: I don't understand what "shareware" is. Why do I have
to order Redhook's Revenge if I already have a copy of
it?

ANSWER: Because you haven't paid for it. If you "bought"
Redhook's Revenge from a shareware vendor, you only paid
for the disk, not the actual program. At the opening
screen of Redhook's Revenge, press the F2 key. A
detailed explanation about the shareware concept will
appear for you there.

To reward those who actually register Redhook's Revenge
we have included extra "bonus" features which are not in
the shareware version. See the order form for details.



Thank you for playing Redhook's Revenge! We hope you get hours of
enjoyment from our program. If you have any further questions or
problems, please contact us:
