on there web page. The file name is WAVEPTCH.ZIP. This TSR should
solve the problem.
WW and Lockups or Memory errors
The problem that you are having with
Wacky Wheels is caused by not having enough available memory when
running the game. Wacky Wheels requires two megabytes of memory
available in order to run. As DOS itself takes up memory, Wacky Wheels
requires a machine with more than two megabytes of memory.
If you do have more than two megabytes
of memory available, then you are loading up TSRs and device drivers

Wacky CD without the manual
Due to the problems with lost manuals
in the past, we have opted to make a card copy of the Wacky Manual on
the CD-ROM. You can get to it via Windows or dos.
In windows open up the cd-rom. And
double click on the file called Manual.
In dos you will need to switch to your
CD-ROM Drive and type in Manual.
C:/> d: <Enter>
D:/> manual <Enter>
This will bring you to the full color
manual that is on the CD-ROM.
