You must add the Zork Nemesis exe. file (the one you click on to play) to the CPU killer window. When you open CPU killer, click on the red down arrow on the right side. Click add, and find the game program. Once it is added, click start and then click the game file you just added and choose launch.

Hope this helps.

Ah ha - thought I was goofing it up somewhere!!! Back to the old drawing board and I do thank you Rae. If this gets me up and going I will be for ever indebted to you. Should I send money, kisses or food? smile

To Rae: (again) Am in the process of fine tuning the CPU Killer Program for my PC and have one question and one concern:

Question - should one use the slider to choose a number for your PC re slowing it down, or use the "tune to your computer" option under File?

Concern: Another GBer has said he used CPU Killer and it messed up his PC so badly he is going to have to do a restore. Now I am afraid to contine - should I be? Has anyone else reported such problems?

Very disappointed and discouraged. Was in the process of testing CPU Killer and thus far it did NOT do anything for my disk changing problem. Maybe more adjustments would have but I now get a message I must register the program after only a few hours of testing and buy it as I understand their message. So I can no longer test it to see if I can get it to work and thus be of use.

Certainly do not want to buy a program that is not working for me - don't understand their rationale. Anyone else having this experience? frown

I've only used CPU Killer once, and didn't like it so I deleted it, so I can't answer specific questions - but it shouldn't mess up your computer so much that a restore is needed. I am not sure what happened there.

It is a shareware, so you're not obligated to pay for it if you choose not to use it after the trial.

I am still stumped at your problem... maybe it's an issue with the CD-ROM driver perhaps? Is there a later CD-ROM driver that you could install?

I've never tried CPUKiller, but I've never heard of it messing up anyone's computer before. Not that it couldn't happen of course, but I wonder if something else could have messed up the computer at the same time by coincidence. But if you don't like CPUKiller, just uninstall it. You're under no obligation to buy shareware if you don't want it.

Not sure what happened around the PC that Killer messed up - fiend did not specify. I do know I can simply uninstall the program - was just disappointed that the trail period was too short to give one a chance to test it. And Magician, will try updating the driver - have an all new PC but guess that does not mean all the drivers are updated. Thanks guys for trying to help. Hope I do not wear out my welcome with this game and its problems. smile

Unfortunately when they update drivers they usually aren't too concerned with whether they work with 7-year-old games.

I've only used the CPU killer once, on Liath, which did not help the problem I was having, but I did not realize it had such a short "life". It hasn't caused any problems on my computer. I am not having the severe disk changing problem with Nemesis, however, just the same one that Inferno and others have noted. And my panning was fine, unlike the posts here and in HELP. So, I'm afraid I'm not being too helpful. Maybe the MoSlo program??? What does Jenny think?

MoSlo is for DOS, so there isn't much use for it on a Windows XP computer. Even if there were, if CPUKiller didn't help with the CD changing problem it isn't likely MoSlo would either. Both of them effectively make the computer run slower and do nothing else. So if one doesn't help the problem the other won't either.

Sure do appreciate all the input and support. Will keep plugging away at this game and if and when I ever do resolve the two main issues - fast panning and disk changing problems will certainly post my resolution for others to see and perhaps use also.

Hi Y'all
Just popped in from the Twilight zone here in the Big D.
I've been bizarro busy the past few weeks and this is really the first time in almost a month that I've found sometime to go online.

Desertlilac:
It's very important that you make sure the you are not running this game in a "Window" it needs to be run "Maximized" to optimize the Vesa driver.

I also had the same problem with my cursor having ADD! wink ...I found that turbo worked the best for me at 25% speed. Make sure that you have your keyboard unloaded as well (if it is a preprogramable one). Accelerations should be set at 3 and 1 (video/audio)
You do need the patches as well.

As Always:
Inferno devil
