First of all, make sure you have downloaded Era Online from our web site at www.eraonline.net where it can be found in the download section. Once you have downloaded the zip file there,unzip it using WinZip into any directory of your choice. Now there will a Setup.Exe file in the directory. Click Setup.Exe and follow the instructions on screen. Now, go to the directory you installed to and simply run Era Online ! The game can also be run from the start menu now. If you are having problems running the game, read the Troubleshooting.txt found in the DOCS directory. If you still cannot fix your problem, mail the support e-mail address found in the Contact Us section of this manual. Also, be sure your system meets these requierments: Pentium 166 16 Ram 50 Mb Free Disk Space 800x600 Screen Resolution 16 Bit Color 14.400 BPS Modem Windows 95/98 or higher Directx 6.0 or higher The game could work with specifications lower than this, but even with these specifications, the game will run slow and may seem choppy. We strongly recommend atleast this system: Pentium 266 32 Ram 100 Mb Free Disk Space 28.800 Modem The game has proven to sometimes not work on Cyrix Processors. We do not know why, and we have no idea how to fix this. So if the game won`t run with your Cyrix Processor, we cannot help you.
