Q: When I start the game it is running very slow!!
A: The game will start in DirectX mode and first try 32bit mode, if it can not open a 32 bit window it will go down to 16 bit and try again. If it's is still slow try changing to OpenGL in the options screen. Many graphics cards are faster and better in OpenGL mode.
Q: I'm getting slowdowns when there is lots of effects going on!
A: Try switching to OpenGL. With good graphics card drivers the game is much smoother when using OpenGL. Also turn OFF options that would slow down the frame rate - like shadows and backgrounds.
Q: I can not submit my hiscores!!
A: If you got any firewall programs running, you must allow DotBot.exe to access the internet in the allow listings for the firewall program.
Q: I have allowed DotBot to access the internet and yet I can not submit my hiscores!!
A: You can only submit the top 5 hiscors in each hiscore table and you must wait 60 seconds between each time you submit
a new hiscore.
Q: Why can't we play 4 player team mode ?
A: 4 players would sail through all the levels. At first we didn't even include 3 player teams !!
Q: What new things can we expect in the game ?
A: Many things are planned but of course none are promised till they are in the game. Such as more secrets, more bonus rounds, kids mode and possibly network support.
Q: Are there other ways to pay ?
A: You can pay by cash or bank transfer too. These options are much slower! Cash can be sent to
