Trivia

Your CD-Rom drive may not be recognized if it is not designated as Drive D.

In addition, it appears that Ripper was not made as a Windows "native" game. While it will run within a DOS window when started in Windows, problems with stuttering sound and lagging graphics are common. The game plays best from the DOS prompt using a Boot Disk.
