I Introduction & Requirements

To use this theme, you must have Windows 95 & Microsoft Plus, or Windows 98.

NOTE- If you have an early release of Windows 95, you may need to obtain the latest version of Microsoft Netshow to hear the sound effects. Netshow is a free utility that can always be downloaded from "".

II Installation Instructions- 1) To install desert combat theme, you must first unzip the files into your current themes directory (generally found in C:/Program Files/Plus!/themes/).

Make sure that the "Use Folder Names" option is selected so that the files will go into their appropriate directories.

2) You may now select 2 times for a full installation of the theme by opening the thememanager in control panel. You should see the 'Gulfwar-Tank' theme listed in the list of available themes.

III Troubleshooting- 1) If you cannot hear sound effects, you do not have the microsoft MP3 codec installed. This codec comes with Windows 98, but Windows 95 users should download the latest version of Microsoft's 'NETSHOW'. It can be downloaded from "".

2) If you cannot see the stylized text, you did not properly install the Haettenschweiler font. Please re-read step 3 above.

3) If windows crashes every time you attempt to open the file, you have run across one of Microsofts many 'undocumented features'. Namely, the JPG decoder installed by MS Office is incompatible with that used by PLUS! For more info and a fix, visit Microsloth's website at "".

4) The theme cannot find any of the files it needs! - You did not extract the file properly. Please re-read step 1 in the installation instructions.
