********************************************************** -> Installation <Please carry out the following steps in order to install the game: 1. Place the Cossac s - Bac to War CD-Rom in your CD-Rom drive and close it. 2. If the Autorun function of your CD-Rom drive is activated, the installation program will start automatically. If this is not the case, you will have to start the program CSETUP.EXE in the root directory of the Cossac s - Bac to War CD-Rom manually by doubleclic ing. 3. Follow the instructions of the installation program. 4. We hope you'll enjoy Cossac s - Bac To War ! ********************************************************** -> Important <1. Your monitor (and your graphic card) must support a 1024x768 resolution for the game to run. If your monitor (or your graphic card) supports only resolutions lower than 1024x768, Cossac s - Bac to War will not run. 2. You must have an installed version of DirectX 6.0 or higher on your computer for the game to run. If you do not already have DirectX installed, you can install it from the game CD. 3. When testing we discovered that old sound cards in ISA slots and sound cards with Yamaha XG chipsets with old drivers lead to computer problems. This problem can only be eliminated by installing the latest drivers for these sound cards. ********************************************************** In most cases you will not need the program "Internet Game Setup". However, if you play Cossac s via a proxy and through a firewall in the internet, problems may arise when you download clan icons. In order to solve these, just start the program "Internet Game Setup", set the proxy to "enable" and then enter the address of the proxy and the port. You can find these for instance in the internet explorer under Tools->Internet Options-> Connection->LAN Settings. **********************************************************
