Part 1: Things You Should Know

Please read through the DirectX section of this document. This section has information that is vital to successfully running the Praetorians Demo on your system.


1.1 DirectX

This game is optimised forMicrosoft's DirectX 8.1. In order for you to play the game, you must have DirectX 8.x or higher-compliant drivers for your video card and sound card. Please note that DirectX 8.1b is not installed with the game, you must install it separately.

You will need to obtain the latest DirectX 8.x drivers from your card manufacturer or PC supplier. These drivers cannot be supplied by Eidos.


1.2 Memoryand Performance

While the game will run fine in 128 Mb of RAM, your playing experience will be smoother if you have at least 256 Mb.

Regardless of how much memory you have, you can maximize your available memory and increase the overall performance of the game engine by doing the following:

q Closing any open windows
q Shutting down all other programs, including menu-bar programs like ICQq Defragmenting your hard drive

Eidos recommends that you have no other programs running at all while playing the Praetorians Demo. Other programs, including virus checkers, system utilities and screen savers can cause system degradation when playing games software and may conflict with the game for system resources, potentially resulting in instability and crashes.


1.3 Known Issuesq We highly recommend that you do not ALT-TAB out of the Praetorians Demo at anytime.


1.4 Additional Information

q Windows ME: The Praetorians Demo can run on systems with Windows ME though neither Eidos Interactive nor Pyro Studios have tested it extensively and unfortunately cannot offer support for any technical issues related to systems running Windows ME.

q 64 MB RAM: ThePraetorians Demo can run on systems with 64 MB RAM and Windows 98 (not 2000 or XP) though this with may affect performance. Neither Eidos Interactive or Pyro Studios can offer support for any technical issues relating to computers with less than 128 MB RAM.

q Graphics Cards: Technically speaking the Praetorians Demo may run on Graphics Cards with as low as 8 MB RAM as long as the drivers aresupported by DirectX 8.x or higher. Again this has not been tested extensively so neither Eidos Interactive nor Pyro Studios can offer support for any technical issues relating to Graphics Cards with less than 16 MB RAM and without Direct X 8.x (or higher) support.

Preparing Your Hard Drive

To ensure that your installation is trouble free, you should check to seethat your hard drive and file system are both tuned for optimum performance. Windows comes with two utility programs that find and fix any errors and optimise your hard drive performance. The first of these programs is called scandisk. Scandisk will check your hard drive for problems and can fix any that it finds. You can run scandisk by clicking on the Start button from the Windows Taskbar,followed by Programs, then Accessories, then System Tools, and finally scandisk.

Once scandisk has finished running, you should next optimise your hard drive's performance by running a program called Disk Defragmenter.. You can run Disk Defragmenter by clicking on the Start button from the Windows desktop, followed by Programs, then Accessories, then System Tools, and finally Disk Defragmenter....
