OS/2 Gamer's Guide installation v. March 1995 (25/2/1995, Kevin James Black) Readme/What's new
THE OS/2 GAMER'S GUIDE - March 1995 Edition ===================================================== PLEASE READ THIS TEXT IN ITS ENTIRETY AS IT CONTAINS IMPROTANT INFORMATION ON PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS AND ON INSTALLATION PROCEDURES. Thank-you for taking a look at the second edition of "The OS/2 Gamer's Guide". This program is meant to be an easy to use tool in getting your DOS games working their best under OS/2. The program is very straight forward in it's design and therefore should be extremely easy to use. I hope to be able to release updates at regular intervals in order to keep the contents of the guide as up-to-date as possible and thereby support the newest games. My initial idea is to do this on a bi-monthly basis, but please comment if you think otherwise. Finally, this program is freeware but I would appreciate a comment if you use the software. The program, and the installation routine, were both written entirely using VX-REXX v2.0c from Watcom. As a result it requires you to have a copy of the VX-REXX runtime library, VROBJ.DLL. This can be found on numerous OS/2 FTP sites including ftp-os2.cdrom.com, ftp.nmsu.edu and rexx.uwaterloo.ca. The easiest and most reliable site is rexx.uwaterloo.ca. You can find the DLL file in the pub/os2/vxrexx directory. Either VROBJ20C.ZIP or VROBJ21C.ZIP will do the job but you should probably grab 2.1 as it is the newest. Please send any comments, suggestions, game settings or anything else to me at black2@server.uwindsor.ca. Thanks, Kevin James Black January 27th, 1995
