HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS AND OPTIONS
This demo requires a 80386 processor and 570 000 bytes of
free conventional memory.
With Sound Blaster and Sound Blaster Pro you will need an
additional 1 megabyte of EMS. With the Gravis UltraSound
and the No Sound-option no EMS is needed. You can choose
the desired sound card and the mixing frequency from the
SETUP screen when you run the demo.
To be able to really experience this demo, we recommend that
you have a 486-based machine, a fast VGA card and a sound card.
If your machine is 386-based, the demo will work, but many
parts slow down and the demo simply looks worse.
If you have a DOLBY SURROUND decoder/amplifier hooked up to
your hi-fi set, have it on-line while running this demo and
you will get some cool surround sound effects.
(Surprisingly, does not work with the normal Sound Blaster).
COMMAND LINE PARAMETERS
You can start the demo from five different points by adding
a correct command line parameter at your DOS prompt after
typing the SECOND.EXE (, for example C:> SECOND 3).
Here is the list:
1 Starts the demo from the very beginning
(the same as without any parameter)
2 Starts from the title screen
3 Starts from the landscape scroller
4 Starts from the vectorpart
5 Starts from the end credits
If you want to run this demo in an endless loop, for example
at a computer exhibition, be sure to enable the Loop-option.
When looping, the end scroller will not be displayed, and the
demo will restart automatically after the credits.
You can find more information and a few hints from the SETUP-
screen by running the SECOND.EXE.
