2. Operation on Mobile Computers

When playing on mobile computers, please pay special attention to the required
minimum configuration. While in many cases, the CPU, i.e. the processor speed, is
sufficient, the memory or the video card resolution often is not.

For systems using a shared memory, i.e. borrowing main memory for the video card,
you might be able to set the required value, thus facilitating playability of the
game. To do this, refer to the manual of your mobile computer to check whether and
how you can adjust the memory size of your graphics card.
Further tips:

- If you keep experiencing small interruptions or pauses during the game, this
might be attributable to the following causes:

- The main or graphics memory is insufficient it is necessary to frequently swap

out or reload data. Look up the minimum requirements of the game and check whether
these are met by your system. You might have to upgrade your main memory or
allocate more memory to your video card to be able to play without problems.

- The energy settings for your hard disk have been set at too low a value your
hard disk is frequently being shut down and needs to be restarted before data can
be accessed. You will find these settings (in Windows XP) in the control panel
under Power Management. Increasing the value for Turn off hard disks might
solve the problem.

- For design reasons, the LCD screens used in mobile computers have a maximum frame
rate of 25 frames per second (fps), which might cause problems with games that are
action intensive. In this case, we recommend using an external screen, if possible.

- Another point that might prove to be problematic with mobile computers is the
slightly altered keyboard layout and the control via touchpad, or any other
substitute for a mouse. In this case, you might be able to solve the problem by
connecting an external keyboard or a mouse to your machine.

4. Further Tips & Notes

- The afore-mentioned minimum requirement of 310 MB free space on your hard disk
refers only to the free space needed for installing the game. You should always
make sure that there are still several hundred megabytes of free space on the drive
on which you have installed Windows. Otherwise you might, under certain conditions,
encounter problems while playing the game. For more detailed information on the
Windows space requirements please refer to the Windows help files.
