Quaterpole:Constant Lockup

Hi there, just recently purchased a new game called Quaterpole which looks like this wonderful horse racing simulation that runs in ms-dos, and I'm having problems with it.  It installs all gravy, but when I enter the game and click almost anywhere...it locks up, the mouse moves, but everything else just becomes null and void.  I have tried it thru win95, win95dos, msdos 6.22, and same sort of situation.  I make sure things are loaded like the little page manual says as well.  I'll be trying more things, but honestly, as of now I'm stumped.  I really want to play this game *smile*.  Hopefully one of you has played this and can give me appropriate help, thanks.

In my experience, mouse problems in MS-DOS based games are normally due to a mouse driver conflict. Simply, try installing a different dos mouse driver and try again. If you don't have one, look amongst some of your other games, there is bound to be a disk in there somewhere. If your really stuck, E-Mail me with your address at:

Memmaker really doesn't help with win95 now though, and I don't use any extra memory program, nor stacker or anything evil like that.

What kind of video card do you use?
How many color is your co,puter running on? 24-bit? 16 Color? 256?
Does the game have sound, if so what kind of soundcard do you have?
Have you tried to create a boot disk that only lets you load only necessary file? (ex. autoexec.bat)

I meant in pure DOS. Can you post your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT ?

Have you thought that it may not run in Win95?
