I've asked for help on this forum and the gentle people here kept telling me it's a memory issue, but I had a memory configuration optimized for PacWar and still it didn't help.
That's one of the problems of having the forum open so long: solved problems get moved to the back of the line, and nobobdy can remember the solution when the problem comes up again. When this issue occurs with an on-board video system, most often the solution is to update the BIOS to a version that correctly supports the ancient EGA graphics. (I was fortunate enough to be able to guide a questioner to the Compaq site where BIOS upgrades could be downloaded.)
Unfortunately, MAARTENR's machine seems to use a plug-in card. It is possible he could find an updated driver from SiS that could solve the problem, but I'm not sure whether EGA is handled by the video card or the BIOS in his system. It is also possible that he is having memory problems, unlike LST. My advice is to open up a DOS window ("MS-DOS prompt") and type in:
This command will tell you how much free DOS memory you have, and what the largest size program is that can be executed. If it is less than 600 KB, this is likely to be the problem.
Civil war? What does that mean? Is there any foreign war? Isn't every war fought between men, between brothers?
