Memory Requirements for Hard Disk Users:
ABC's Wide World of Sports Boxing requires at least 1 Megabyte of total
memory and at least 430K of the Amiga's built-in-graphics memory (chip
ram) to run. If your Amiga has 512K of chip ram (such as an A1000, A500
or A2000 without the 1 Meg. "Agnus" chip) you may have to play ABC's
Wide World of Sports Boxing by booting directly from the Punch disk.
You can check how much "chip" memory you have in your computer by opening
the CLI and typing AVAIL. Look next to the word "CHIP" under the
"AVAILABLE" column for the amount of chip memory you have free. If the
number is greater than 430,000 you will have enough memory to run the
game. If not, you will need to boot from the Punch disk.
Tips to Maximize Free Chip Ram.
Make sure that your STARTUP-SEQUENCE script loads only the files needed
for hard-disk operation (no programs such as virus checkers, RAM disks,
or multitasking applications).
Make sure that all open Workbench windows are closed.
* Disconnect any external disk drives that may be connected.
* Important! Never connect or disconnect peripherals such as disk drives
or printers when your Amiga is on! Doing so may seriously damage your
Amiga or any other peripherals.
