Title: Need help with hired guns
Post by: rednova on July 15, 2019, 01:23:45 AM
hi all :

i just got original disks+manual of hired guns from ebay.
I select 1 player, training mission, and exploration scenario.
When the player profile comes up, and the character 'Clavius' is on,
I cannot do anything to change the character or advance to the next screen.
I tried using the joystick, the mouse, and the keyboard, but nothing works.
If I press the enter button, it puts Clavius into the first character square on the right,
and I can press the delete key to empty the square. but that is all i can do.
I cannot select all 4 characters or even advance to the game.
Is anyone knows what to do please ?
thank you !!!

Here's the manual if that helps....   8)   But you already have that.

Do you have at least 1MB of ram?

I looked on the Psygnosis site but didn't find any kind of patch either...

@giZmo350
your help was super and now the game works !!!
I did have the manuals, but there is like 3 or 4 of them and I did not look at all of them,
just one of them.
I checked the link you gave me for the manual online, and it clearly stated how to scroll
the characters to change and select them. I just did not look at the right manual.
The game works fine now, and I know what to do to select characters and play the game.
Everything works and I can now play hired guns !!!
@giZmo350
your help was invaluable, thank you very much !!!
Love !!!

Me and my old mate Adam spent weeks playing this game when we were teenagers. He got me onto Settlers too. He knew what a good game was. Hours of fun on Bratwurst too. We hammered those three games.  :D
