If you want to say to me that i should open the installed game, i did this 4 hours ago (i can't save in any of the games (installed or uninstalled))

I also can't save in Return to Ringworld.

I'm very sad.

There's nothing wrong with having an older computer (BTW: I'm from Slovenia - so I understand the spelling problems - and many people here use even older and weaker computers).

Maybe you should try DOSBox.

Do this:

1 - Download DOSBox (our site hosts a link to it HERE) - it's free.

2 - Install DOSBox.

3 - Extract the game archive (when you downloaded the game from the site).

4 - Make sure the unzipped folder is on your C: drive (and don't change the name).

5 - Run DOSBox.

6 - Type these commands:
- mount c: c:\ <press enter>
- c: <press enter>
- cd ring <press enter>
- ring <press enter>

Hope it works.

EDIT: Don't try to install the game - it's not necesary and it could change some settings you'll need.

After ~2 seconds from when I start DOSBox, it quits.
HELP.

Also, if i don't install the game, it says that ring.exe is not a valid Win32 application
I've got the problem with win32 at almost al games on Abandonia.

(I don't think my download is corrupted because i use a cable modem, which means that i don't use the phone for the internet connection)

It's a compatibility problem.
I'm not sure about Win98, but I know Win95 had the possibility to run it in dos mode. When you want to shut-down your computer does it give you the option to restart in MS-DOS mode?

Great! This game was made for MS-DOS so it should run normaly there.

Restart the computer in MS-DOS.
Keep typing CD.. <press enter> (thats CD and two dots and then enter) untill you get only C:\ in the black screen.
Now type CD RING <press enter>
It should read C:\RING
Now type RING <press enter> and the game should start.

Actually, I was wondering...is there any way of getting a pdf of the manual to this game so that we can play it if we don't have the actual manual? I googled it and to no avail. I really want to play more of this game, it's really quite interesting.
