Angel Devoid installation

I bought a game entitled "Angel Devoid" for MS-DOS. I am running a Win95 system. When I installed, many times it would freeze up during installation. I created a boot-disk (also worked if running in REAL-DOS mode) and it installed fine. However, I have not found a way to make it run. I believe it has to do with the fact that msdos.sys and io.sys are hidden files that are changed when upgrading to Win95. Also, it -may- be due to lack of VESA support. When I try to load it, I get a message saying cannot find (can't read what filename it is). The font is about two inches high and tends to jumble together. Heh, anyone have a suggestion?

I dont think it is to do with the sys files.  sounds more like a vesa problem
with your graphics card.

Might be an idea to either swap in a friends graphics card and see if that
works or download some vesa device drivers such as "univesa" or
"univbe"

Possibly the error message is something to do with lack of memory
managers or no cd loaded.  Does the game run off cd?

Have you loaded emm386 and himem.sys in the config.sys on your boot disk?

Crashes usually indicate sound is setup wrong are you sure that  SET BLASTER etc is in the autoexec.bat and that the sound has been setup properly.  Beware of auto detecting soundcard.

It sounds like it might work. I request that sf9 be given some points as well, though I'm not sure how to go about it. Thanks for your help people!
