2.) Maybe your graphic-board (special Matrox-boards) has problems.
2.1) Go to "Start" -> "Configure" -> "Visual FX" -> and switch off "Scroll levels"
2.2) If this does not help, go to "Start" -> "Configure" -> "Visual FX" -> and switch off also "Rotating score"
3.) If 1.) and 2.) do not help, you can also try to switch off
the second mouse.
Go to "Start" -> "Configure" -> "2. Mouse" -> and switch off "Enable device"
4.)You have problems with
the colours in WinBrick 96
4.1) Do you use 256 colours? Try to use more than 256 colours!
4.2) If you can not or want not to use more than 256 colours:
Do you use microsoft office with the shortcut bar?
Close the shortcut bar while playing WinBrick 96!
2.) Unable to play via modem or over the internet.
2.1) The option playing via modem is included in the Direct Play - functionality. Unfortunately we were unable to test this feature ourselves. We are developing at the moment a new game with more players and perhaps we are able to solve and fix the problem in a future release. But we are not sure, if the modem-functionality really does work or not. Normally Microsoft provides this interface and it should work. The required Datarate is about 800 bytes/sec. Therefore a 9600 baud-modem should be sufficient.
This is the way, it normally works:
-You have to choose the connection type before starting the network game (IPX/TCP/Modem)
-Choose "Create network game" for open a new game.
-Choose "Connect to network game" to select and connect to an opened session.
2.2) We are sorry, but we are only using DirectX 2 and not DirectX 3. Therefore you are unable to play over the internet.
3.) Unable to access the highscore-site.
3.1.) We are very sorry, but you can only use this highscore-address, when you are a member of MSN.
WinBrick 96 is only on this page, because it has been the "Featured Game Of The Month" from Microsoft for a few months.
We are still looking for a possibility for all players to compare their highscores.
But we have not found one yet, where you have NOT the chance to give wrong highscores in the list.
4.) Unable to use the 2. mouse
4.1) Uninstall your Logitech-Mouse-Driver for your 2. mouse. WinBrick 96 will find this 2. mouse by itself.
We have two different kinds of keywords:
