General Lockups with Raptor

The problem you are having with this game is related to a conflict with something else loaded in memory, usually a memory manager. To get around the problem, you will need to boot your system clean. The easiest way to do this is to create a boot disk (see the FORMAT /S command in your DOS manual for instructions) and make a CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT file on that disk. Your CONFIG.SYS file should only contain the following lines:


You will only need an AUTOEXEC.BAT file if you are using a mouse to play the game. If you are using a joystick or the keyboard to play the game, the AUTOEXEC.BAT file is optional. This file should only contain the following lines:


Mouse Problems

The problem that you are having with Raptor is due to the fact that you are using an old version of your mouse driver or you do not have one loaded at all. You will need to contact the manufacturer of your mouse, and get the most current mouse driver available. Please remember that this is a dos game and you will need to load a DOS driver for the mouse to work in side of the game. 

Speed Issues with Raptor

The speed increase that you are having with Raptor is not due to an error within the game. Raptor is designed to be a very high speed, fast action paced game. If you have seen Raptor playing slower on a different system, it is because that previous system was not capable of running Raptor at the speed it is designed to be run at. The only way that you can slow the game down on your particular system, is by hitting the turbo switch on your machine if it has one.
