Default [Extra] Dominus (Documentation)

I played this game when it first appeared back in 1994. The variety of actions you could take impressed me: you could direct your generals to fight on a large strategic map (as your lands were invaded), lead the battle yourself in person, capture enemy monsters, torture them, create new spells, etc. The only problem was terrible documentation. And I never did find a pause key that allowed the inputting of commands. It was a wild, unproductive scramble trying to move from room to room to accomplish a series of tasks in realtime, which my computerized enemies had no difficulty achieving all at once, damn their multitasking code!

The game's currently available on HOTU, but--not surprisingly--without documentation. Has anybody got the docs for this? And more to the point, is it possible to freeze action and input commands?
