General Troubleshooting - DOS
  • ADOM needs a DPMI host to run. If you don't have installed a DPMI server you can use the free DPMI server included in the ADOM package. It's called CWSDPMI.EXE. Simply run it immediately before starting ADOM and everything should be fine. Details about CWSDPMI.EXE can be found in CWSDPMI.DOC.

  • ADOM does not seem to work when started from a drive created with the SUBST command (refer to your DOS-documentation when you are using it).

  • ADOM uses a wrong color map when started on an Archimedes with a PC emulator card (yes, we even tried that :-).

  • ADOM seems to have problems to work together with the cache program from Norton Utilities (reported under DOS 6.22). You might want to disable the cache software before booting to play ADOM.
