JETFIGHTER GROUNDED

I have a Borland program called Jetfighter which ran well on my IBM PS/2 (80386 processor). Having transferred it to my Gateway 2000 P5-75 (Pentium processor) I can now get no further from the DOS prompt than the following:

run-time error R6003
- integer divide by 0

I am then returned to the DOS prompt. What does this mean, please? Or better still, can I do anything to make the program run normally?

It's the famous Jetfighter Pentium Bug!!  The official answer to the problem that I got from Velocity was "Too bad!"  I had heard that there was a patch available, but Velocity Tech Support denied it when I asked them (actually, I e-mailed them about 15 times before I finally got an anwser).  I've heard that running with MoSlo' (available at most any FTP site near you) is supposed to make things work, but I've never tried it.  If you have success, please let me know.

Many thanks. I'll try this and let you know. IDB

I found Mo'Slo without difficulty, many thanks. I have since tried almost every speed switch down to 1% but, frustratingly, the best that happens is that it begins the program with the Velocity logo followed by the aircraft picture at which point it hangs up. I have not been able to improve on this, but at least it is marginally better than before.  IDB
