Hello ( 386, DOS6.22 games setup.exe )
What is the best config.sys, autoexec.bat settings so that dos games' setup.exe won't give "STACKS OVERFLOW SYSTEM HALTED" error ?
-Dos games like jazz jackrabbit 1 and Warcraft 1 setup.exes give this error.

I have "STACKS=9,256" in config.sys and it does not help.

Sound card is ESS 1869F ISA Audiodrive A220 I5 D1.
RAM=8mb.

Hi, try STACKS=18,512 and see if that works. :)
