When i do a complete Tiefighter install instead of a minimum install. I get the error message:

VESA Bios not detected
Hires mode unavailable
UNIVBE can't emulate VESA BIOS.

I have a P100 with 16 MB RAM.
Tiefighter starts in DOS mode
Any solutions would be appreciated.

There is probalby a DOS based utility that comes with the video card driver to extend the bios.  Usually it is called VESA____ something.  Chech the installation files that came with the video adapter (or downlaod a set of drivers of you do not have disks) for a vesa bios extension.

Put this program into the AUTOEXEC.BAT ot the batch file that launched the game.
