                               Description
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Flying Tigers is designed to be a fast pace shoot-em game with
multiple weapons, power ups, enemies and bosses. The object is simple:
survive and see how far you can get, while racking up a few points in
the process. But, seriously your objective is to destroy the bosses who
are attempting to take over the world, this won't be easy each boss has
it own way of attack!
    In scenario 1(sharware version) you will be thrown into the middle
of 1942, the techno bosses are starting transfering technology to the
Japanese Empire. It is your job to stop these bosses at all cost!
    In scenario 2 and 3(registered version) you will be in 1972 and 2012
fighting the techno bosses.  Beware, these bosses are not like the first,
they are much smarter and tougher.

                 Hints for faster game play (if needed)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Flying Tigers was designed to run as fast as possible on the PC's.
However, the speed of the game is ultimately decided by what type of
video card and how fast memory is copied to the card. The methods used
might also cause some type of snow effect on some cards.

    Try playing a harder skill level, planes and your ship move faster
the harder the skill level.

    Using a joystick or game pad also slows things down a bit, try using
keyboard if extra speed is needed.

    Sounds take up a good deal of time to process, it would be a good
idea to select a low sound quality while in the setup program.

                              Known bugs
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keyboard Problems
    You may notice under different keyboard configurations some keys
might have a tendancy to stick or not respond correctly, this is due to
the way interrupts are handled under protected mode. To correct this select
different keys definitions for the keys that do no respond correctly.

Novell DOS 7:
    The DOS Extender of Flying Tigers has problems with EMM386 that is
delivered with Novell DOS. Please REM out EMM386 from your config.sys
file or make a bootdisk.  See your DOS manual for instructions on how
to make a boot disk.  If you have a compression program such as
DoubleSpace or Stacker you will want to see their manual on how to
create a boot disk.
    If Flying Tigers does not run under Novell DOS 7 you may have to
remove the SETVER.EXE command in the config.sys.
