Fun fact about this older rant by Raymond Chen: often you can search for the error message and identify the anonymized guilty party. Yes, I know many of these games at least by name.


And - yes, I can totally see how this error message can make someone despair. Crazy enough, I actually remember moving TSRs into high memory. 😀

Going down the memory lane, I cannot find any mentions of the TSR in question - a russification application which I think was called "gamma" (yes, non-English wasn't trivial back in DOS days). I see mentions of Alfa and Beta, so I'd assume Gamma used to be an improved version.
