Twilight era il nome di una serie olandese di CD-ROM e DVD pubblicati mensilmente, che conteneva una raccolta di software popolari ma spesso molto costosi, per lo più giochi per computer e applicazioni pubblicati nel mese della sua uscita. Le protezioni delle applicazioni e dei giochi venivano spesso rimosse. Inoltre, per poter archiviare il più possibile su uno o due dischi, i giochi e le app venivano spesso compressi, oltre che privati di video e audio. La serie ha funzionato dall’inizio del 1996 fino al 16 giugno 2001.

³  WELCOME!
Welcome to the third edition of Twilight. We enjoyed receiving your
comments on Release 2 and took notice of them, so some accidental flaws
should be fixed this time.
Since we think “Never Change a Winning Team” is very good advice, we took
some of it and only slightly changed our formula. Once again, however,
we try to bring you the best of what’s currently out there, keeping in mind
the fact that what might suck to someone, might rule for somebody else…
But since programs and games are growing bigger and bigger, making a well-
balanced selection gets harder; However, we think we succeeded once again…
³  THE WARES
As stated above, we try to bring you the best, easiest to install wares.
From the Twilight Installer you’re only a keypress away from playing a game,
or installing a program. Most of the games are ZIPped and can be easily
uncompressed. There’s always been (and probably always will be!) a debate
going on whether games should be ZIPped or not. We decided to do both!
Most games are ZIPped, but some huge ones are left on the CD uncompressed,
which saves a lot of harddisk-space. All applications are installable
directly from the CD, so they’re always uncompressed.
Our philisophy is to put NO betas on Twilight. However, sometimes we DO
decide to put one on the CD. When do we do this?
þ The program should have an extreme appeal to a lot of people, i.e.
people are already having discussions whether it sucks or not;
þ It’s stable;
þ The full version won’t be out for a long time.
³  THE VARIOUS-DIRECTORY
When compiling this CD, we came across a lot of files which were not
suitable for inclusion in the main list. However, we figured that these
files might be of interest to many people since these usually include
trainers, cracks, solves and docs. We selected the most interesting
files and put them together in the VARIOUS-directory of the CD. Please
note though, that we did NOT check any of these files!
A list of all files in the VARIOUS-directory with a short description
can be found in the file VARIOUS.LST, also in the VARIOUS-directory. You
can also view this file from the menu by selecting “View Various List”.
³  THE TWILIGHT INSTALLER
First of all: We’re sorry to say that this version of the Twilight Installer
has been found NOT to be working under Windows.
The Twilight Installer enables you to easily select and unpack a program.
Some of its features are:
þ Online Help-Service;
þ Multi-CD Support: One Installer, multiple releases;
þ Tagging of Programs for batch-unpacking;
þ Auto-checking for free diskspace;
þ CD-Changer Support.
Since the Installer is extremely easy to use, no help is required; However,
we still decided to include it, but only for a couple of topics. You can
find topics like keys to use, multi-CD support and things like that.
We included screenshots for a couple of games, giving you an impression
of what it looks like. But of course, to be really able to judge a game,
you have to see it running…
Multi-CD Support allows you to browse through the lists of all releases
of Twilight, and when you’ve made a choice the Installer prompts you to
insert the selected release and off you go! You can select another
release by pushing the appropriate release-number, i.e. 2.
If you’ve got a CD-changer or more than one CD-player, you can insert
a couple of releases of Twilight; When you now select a program, the
Installer will automatically figure out in what CD-ROM drive it is! To
disable CD-Changer Support for some rather vague reason, start the menu with
/C on the command-line.
For more information on other topics, refer to the on-line help system by
pushing F1 from the Installer’s main screen.
³  PUTTING THE INSTALLER ON YOUR HARDDISK
For fast and easy operation, it’s best to put the Installer’s files on your
harddisk. To do this, we included a small installation-program. Just go to
the MENU-directory and type INSTALL. Since the files are very small, this
process will only take a few seconds. To make sure the Installer is always
able to find the required files, you can set an Environment String called
Twilight specifying the directory. So if you installed the files to e.g.
C:TWILIGHT, you should add a line like this to your AUTOEXEC.BAT:
The biggest advantage of putting the files on your harddisk, is the fact
that you can easily switch to any CD by pushing its number, whatever CD is
in your CD-ROM drive!
Note: Older versions of the Twilight Installer are out-of-date and should
NOT be used anymore; Please re-install all files to your harddisk.
³  NOT ENOUGH FREE DISKSPACE?
If you push Enter to install a program, the Installer will automatically
check if there’s enough free diskspace on the selected harddisk. Checking
will ONLY be performed if the game has to be unZIPped; Programs that have
to be installed using their custom installation-program quite often offer
a variety of different installation-options and perform free-space-checking
themselves. For those programs we give you an estimate of the amount of
diskspace a common installation of that program will take up.
If there’s not enough free diskspace to unZIP the program, unZIPping will
be cancelled. However, since the amount of diskspace stated as required
is an estimate which is correct for most machines, you might have enough
free diskspace while the Installer keeps saying you don’t. This problem is
caused by different block-sizes, i.e. especially short files take up more
diskspace on some partitions than on others. To override the Installer’s
free-diskspace-checking, push Control-Enter instead of Enter.
³  TL.EXE: TWILIGHT EASY INSTALLATION
We included a small program called TL.EXE with nearly every program that
has to be unZIPped. It enables you to select common operations, such as
Setup or Run Game from a menu. Make your choice using the cursor-keys and
push Enter to select.
Also available is Read Documentation; We included a small doc-file with
many programs, giving you information on how to install, troubleshooting
or anything else that might be of importance. So make sure you take a look
³  SOFTWARE TESTING/VIRUS CHECKING
We tested ALL programs on a couple of different systems with totally
different configurations (CPU, Memory, Network, Harddisk, OS, etc.). We
have found all programs to work perfectly, but it is possible that you
run into trouble. If you do, please read the Troubleshooting-section
later on. There are millions of different PCs out there…
We have performed virus-checking with the latest versions of:
þ Thunderbyte Anti-Virus (TBAV);
þ McAfee Scan;
þ Dr Solomon’s Toolkit.
³  GOT A PROBLEM?!
This section is intended as a trouble-shooting guide; It tries to give you
some advice if you cannot get a program to work.
þ Trying to run a program which requires 8 MB of memory when you’ve only
got 4 doesn’t make sense.
þ If you’re low on diskspace, try removing some files. Some programs
(especially under Windows!) require some free diskspace to fiddle
þ Try increasing the FILES= statement in your CONFIG.SYS.
þ Remove SMARTDrive. Please! 🙂
þ If you’re using Windows, put the Windows-directory in your path.
þ Try using many different startup-files! Here are some suggestions:
þ Change memory-managers. Change QEMM to EMM386 and vice versa.
þ Use only HIMEM.SYS.
þ Try using NO startup-files at all (clean boot). To do this, push
left-shift at bootup.
þ Remove all TSRs from your startup-files (or at least the ones you
don’t really need). Quite often they take up a big chunk of vital
memory, or they cause a conflict.
þ If a network is not required, disable it.
þ Remember to setup your soundcard properly! If you get it wrong, it
might just crash your machine. Many sound-setup programs offer some
sort of auto-detection; However, if this process crashes your machine
you have to set the parameters manually.
þ If the program doesn’t work under Windows, you’re in for a heck of a
time! 😉 Some causes of problems are:
þ Device conflicts;
þ Low on memory (try increasing the swapfile-size);
þ Missing DLLs or incomplete installations.
Also try tuning your .INI-files if you’re using Win3.X.
³  THANKS N’ GREETS
A big “Thank You!” goes out to all our customers. Thank you for your
A special Hi-Five! goes out to all our friends and people that helped
us getting this CD ready before the deadline. We would have made it anyhow,
but still thanks… [evil grin]
As you can see, we didn’t quit after one or two issues. Expect new
Twilight-material from a dealer near you SOON…
Until then: Enjoy!
