Tips for editing


To add another row to the list, right-click in the row above where you want the new one and select add row.
Try and keep the list in alphabetical order, and put a leading "The" at the end.  (ie; Immortal, The)
Compatibility status should be kept simple. Playable, Not Working and Partially Working should be fine.

Although I haven't tested it, Shihtao says it can't find VBRUN300.DLL, which is the Visual Basic 3.0 Run Time DLL. This can be found on the Internet, and simply has to be put in the System directory.

I have tried (Pressed Alt + Tab) and it says Program Manager then freezes.
Pressing again will take you back normally.
