If I want to start SimCity 2000 on my dos 6.22 computer, it freezes when starting the intro video.
If I put the rem on my Logitech driver in the autoexec.bat, the intro video does start. It doesn't matter which version of the logitech driver I use.

I get this error message

I use the logitech driver in combination with cloaking.exe. Simcity 2000 doesn't work without cloaking either. I would like to use the Logitech driver, because it only takes up 2KB of memory and cutemouse takes up 3KB of memory.
what can I do to get this working with the logitech mouse driver?

I had an issue with a serial Logitech mouse which caused the motherboard to get stuck in reset state. Change the mouse and try again.

Maybe if you skip the into video actual gameplay will still work?
Edit SC2000.BAT and remove the intro line

Have you gone through the readme for that game and made sure you follow all of the recommendations? I haven't played it in 30 years, but I seem to recall using a boot disk back in the day for some reason, leading me to believe that it is picky about your config or has some kind of issue with one of the memory managers. You might find that you've misled yourself about the mouse driver (I played this with a logitech trackball 30 years ago).
