Page 16 of the manual

Since page 16 is missing from the Protection Codes document, i googled it. Here it is:

Running the game

Since I experienced similar problems with running the game that have not been answered yet, here is an alternative procedure for DOSBox users:

1) Unzip the archive into directory which you mount as the C: drive in dosbox (e.g.: C:\DOS\)
2) Run the DOSBox and type
mount C: C:\DOS\
cd ring
3) Install the game into the different directory (e.g. RINGX, if you do otherwise the installation will rewrite the source files and you will end-up with failure). The installation will go over the 100%, but its ok.
4)you should be in the RINGX (or whatever you have chosen) directory, then just type
to start the game.

Note: works for dosbox 0.72

HellFire44 I need help.

I saved a game and evry time I try to load a saved game it says

Engine Fatal: Attempt to fixup a pointer with no fixup entry during macro restore()

Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

dosraider In fact you should also read (even before the Ringworlds) World of Ptavvs and the Protector related ones.
Cause you see, -(even if lots of people think that Stephen King is an amazing writer because he is able to mix main characters from several books together in the Towers series)-, Larry Niven did that long before King, he mixed in fact bits and pieces from several storylines into the Ringworld ones.

Ow, I'm on a gaming board here, sorry, been carried away a bit.
Nevertheless, still good readable books, even if aged a bit.

...and the 'ringworld' planted a seed of inspiration for Halo.[/b]
You know, teh intehnet is the source of knowledge ourdays, if *IF* you can read.
This idea proved influential, serving as an alternative to a full Dyson Sphere that required fewer assumptions (such as artificial gravity) and allowed a day/night cycle to be introduced (through the use of a smaller ring of "shadow squares", rotating between the ring and its sun). This was further developed by Iain M. Banks in his Culture series, which features about 1/100th ringworld–size megastructures called Orbitals that orbit a star rather than encircling it entirely; at this size, rotation to produce 1 g surface gravity also provides day-and-night cycle of cca 24 h as half of the surface faces away from the sun. Similarly, the computer game series Halo is set on ringworld-like megastructures, although the Halo is mere ten thousands of km large.[/b]
And by the way, if you haven't yet, in stead of playing that stupid arcade like game Halo -(that's a personal opinion of mine)- you should read the books. They are good.
And at least you would realise that the Halo ring is an extremely poor wannabe compared to Larry's ring.

Guest Ya know, I really have to wonder if somebody played this game long ago...and the 'ringworld' planted a seed of inspiration for Halo.

Here's a short review:
I guess that should be put in the comunity review section...

The Fifth Horseman The way I understand what Songnar said, he meant that the Ringworld series may have been the source of inspiration for the Discworld series.
