Installing the game using Autorun a) Installing FIFA 99 The easiest method of installing FIFA 99 is to use the "Autorun" feature in Wind ows 95/98. Insert the FIFA 99 CD into your CD-ROM drive. After you select the language you wish to install, the game will bring you to the FIFA 99 Install Scr een.

b) Minimum Hard drive space required It is important to note that you must have a minimum of 20 MB hard drive space f ree to run the game. (additional space is required for Save games and DirectX 6. 0 installation.) c) If your "Autorun" feature is disabled If for some reason your "Autorun" feature is disabled (it may have been disabled by another program, or the "Auto insert notification" may be disabled on your C D), you can install the program by running AUTORUN.EXE directly from the root di rectory of the CD.

2. New options on Install screen after install After you've successfully installed the game in Windows 95/98, you may notice th at some of the buttons that were visible on the Install screen (the "Install" bu tton, for example) are no longer visible, while others (the "Play" button) are n ow available. This simply reflects the new options that are available. Press the "Re-Install" button if you would like to re-install the game (you may have acci dentally deleted some files, or possibly changed your mind about installing the play-by-play files). It will prompt you to uninstall the game and then proceed with re-installing it. See section 4 for details on un-installing.

3. Direct X a. Installing DirectX directly from CD (if you skipped it during game install) FIFA 99 comes with DirectX 6.0 and will prompt you to install it during installa tion. If you would like to install it manually, make sure the FIFA 99 CD is in the CD-ROM drive change to the following folder on your CD-ROM drive: "\Directx6\DirectX" and double-click on DXSETUP.EXE b. DirectX 6.0 and supported We recommend that FIFA 99 be cards. While there is a good tible hardware, you may find hardware run with DirectX compatible sound boards and video chance that FIFA 99 will run with non-DirectX compa that:

i) Sound quality suffers ii) The game runs slightly slower. iii) The game does not run at all. If your sound board or video card do not support DirectX, please contact your ve ndor.

4. Uninstalling FIFA 99 The simplest method of uninstalling FIFA 99 is to use the Uninstall button on th e FIFA 99 Install screen. (this is the Autorun screen that pops up when you inse rt the FIFA 99 CD into the CD-ROM drive)

You may also use the Uninstall shortcut in the Start Menu. This can be found wit h the game icon on the Start Menu. (usually "Start Menu/Programs/EA Sports/FIFA 99") Windows 95/98 also has an "Add/Remove Programs" Icon in the Control Panel that y ou can use to uninstall the game.

5. Memory requirements a. Memory requirements in Windows 95/98 The Windows 95/98 version of FIFA 99 requires a minimum of 16MB of RAM to run. If there is more memory available, you should experience better game performance in all areas. b. Running the game under stressful Windows 95/98 conditions At Electronic Arts we strive to bring you the best in graphics, audio and gamepl ay. We are always pushing the envelope of computer performance. While we have made every effort to ensure that FIFA 99 multi-tasks with all Wind ows 95/98 applications, we recommend that you shut down other applications and r un FIFA 99 by itself when possible.

6. Improving game speed (frame-rates, etc.) One way to speed up the overall FIFA 99 experience is to choose a larger install - the more data that is on your hard drive, the less time that your PC needs to access your CD. We've also implemented a few ways to speed up the game-play. - (the minus key) - reduces the size of the screen y - toggles field detail t - toggles stadium detail Please note that these hotkeys are disabled when running the game with 3Dfx, Pow erVR or D3D support. Disabling the radar, speech or sound effects may also improve the frame-rate. See "Hot Keys" section below for more details.

7. Hot Keys We've implemented various hot-keys to access certain functions more quickly. In the Front End (before you get to the game): F1 F2 F4 F5 F6 F7 F8 Match Select European Dream League Friendly Golden Goal Season Mode Training Multiplayer

F11 - Hangup/Disconnect (Multiplayer games) F12 - Quit FIFA 99 In the game: ESC - Pause Menu F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F8 Tele Cam Sideline Cam Action Cam Goal Cam Stadium Cam Shoulder Cam Ball Cam Tower Cam

F9 - Chat (Network and Modem games) F10 - Quit Current Match (to Match Select or appropriate schedule screen) F11 - Hangup/Disconnect (Multiplayer games) F12 - Quit FIFA 99 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Controller Select Team Management Options Instant Replays Match Statistics Scoring Summary Foul Summary Toggle Radar on/off

T - Toggles Stadium textures/details on/off Y - Toggles Pitch textures/details on/off = (equals) - Increase screen size - (minus) - Decrease screen size 8. Network Running the game on an IPX network with routers In order for the game to function across a router, IPX networks with routers mus t be configured to route SAP. Also, the machine operating as the game server mus t not be running any other software which is an SAP service (TSRs under DOS, som e file sharing, print sharing, or other servers under Windows 95/98). Once again, we recommend that you contact your network administrator if you are experiencing problems.

9. Modem a) Dial and Wait for call ESC can always abort the connection attempt. The game will also time-out after 5 minutes. b) Call Waiting We recommend that call waiting be disabled as we have experience some problems w ith it during modem games. Specifically, call waiting can disrupt modem games al ready in progress.

10. Keyboard, joystick and mouse functionality You must use the mouse to navigate the game interface. Click on buttons and icon s to select modes and options. The keyboard is available to enter information or send chat messages when playing other users via modem or network. Joysticks/gamepads will not operate until you are in a game, except in the contr oller select screen. When you are on this screen you must move whichever input device you plan to use ingame to the left or the right to select your team. Th e game will automatically detect the type of device it is and a graphic will dis play depicting it. Please note that you may have to recalibrate your controllers with each new inst all in order to have the game detect them correctly. We highly recommend the use of a good 10-button gamepad for ingame play. To bring up the ingame pause menus, you can press the Start button (if your game pad has one) or press ESC and then navigate with the mouse again. In all rendering modes, ALT-TAB has been disabled.

11. Notes on 3DFX Chipsets tested & supported: Voodoo Voodoo Rush Voodoo 2 Voodoo Banshee If you experience graphical corruption ingame with a card that has the Voodoo 2 chipset, you may have an incorrect driver for Glide 3. Included on the CD are dr ivers that we tested with FIFA 99. To install these drivers, go to your Control Panel and access System\Device Manager\Sound, video and game controllers (or Dis play adapters). Access the Driver tab and choose 'Update Driver...'. Choose to l et Windows search for a driver, then choose 'Other locations...'. Browse the FIF A 99 CD and look for the Setup\3Dfx\Voodoo2 directory. Select 'OK', then 'OK' (a gain), then select 'Finish' to install the drivers. If you are prompted to 'Inse rt Voodoo2 drivers disk for Win 9x', please browse to the above directory again and click 'OK'. If you experience palette corruption in the loading screen or in-game and have t he MS Office Toolbar loaded, try running the game without the toolbar. If you experience problems, please contact your card manufacturer or chipset ven dor to get the latest drivers.

12. Notes on Power VR The minimum recommended CPU type and Speed for running Power VR is a 166 MHz Pen tium class processor. If you experience problems, please contact your card manufacturer or chipset ven dor to get the latest drivers.

13. Notes on D3D Support Chipsets tested and supported: ATI 3D Rage Pro NVidia Riva 128, Riva TNT Mpact2 3DVD Intel i740 Matrox MGA G200 Permedia 2 Rendition Verite V2100/2200 S3 Savage 3D The 3D Setup program (located in Start Menu/Programs/EA Sports/FIFA 99) defaults to D3D support for the above chipsets. If your card has D3D support and is not one of the chipsets above, the 3D Setup program will default to Software Rendering. In some cases, this may run faster. However, if your D3D card has 4mb of texture memory (or AGP texturing), you can choose D3D support in 3D Setup. Please note that other cards have not been teste d and may not work with FIFA 99. If you experience problems, please contact your card manufacturer or chipset ven dor to get the latest drivers. The NVidia chipset used in cards such as the STB Velocity 128 has drivers that m ay automipmap. This can cause some graphical problems which can be fixed by usin g the latest drivers from NVidia's 'RIVA Extreme' web site (http://nvidia.dimens ion3d.com/). We recommend Version 4.10.01.0230 (supplied by NVidia Corporation).

14. Notes on Sound and Video Cards : FIFA 99 is compatible with most standard video and sound cards. Below are liste d some troubleshooting hints for a few cards that may present some problems. a) Problems with the Oak Technologies Mozart Sound Card We have experienced problems with the Mozart sound card using the Oak Windows 9 5 driver package v6.01 with some of EA's games. You should use the driver packa ge v4.01 if you want to run FIFA 99 properly using the Mozart sound card. b) Problems with the Creative Labs Sound Blaster AWE64 We have experienced audio stuttering and skipping while using these cards. This may be fixed by new drivers or by going to your Control Panel, then to the Syst em\Device Manager\Sound, video & game controllers. Access the Creative Sound Bla ster 16 Plug and Play, then pick the Settings tab. Enable the option for 'Allow Full Duplex operation'. This should fix the problem. c) Problems with the Diamond Viper Pro PCI Video Card We have experienced problems with the Diamond Viper Pro video card with some of EA's games. If you are experiencing difficulties, you can disable PCI burst mod e transfers in your PC's BIOS setup. If your PC's BIOS does not have this featu re, Diamond supplies a utility that you can use to disable PCI burst mode transf ers. If you have access to the Internet, you can download the utility at Diamon d's FTP site at ftp://ftp.diamondmm.com/pub/misc/burst.exe.

15. Notes on Cyrix PCs

a) Multiplayer Game Problem During a multiplayer game (modem, serial or network), if a user repeatedly press es all four arrow keys while NumLock is enabled, the game will go out of sync. b) Processor Note Some non-Intel processors may not run equivalent to the processor rating of Inte l processors. For example, a non-Intel 133MHz processor may only run at the equ ivalent of an Intel 90MHz processor, and therefore may not run FIFA 99 properly.
