Can't access the graphics and controls setup menu[edit]

The game, by default, sets up the Start Menu shortcut to go to the setup window as well.

  2. Right click Frogger2.exe and click Create a New Shortcut.
  3. Right click the new shortcut and select Properties on the drop down menu.
  4. In the target for the properties, add -c a the end of the very end of the target.
  5. Click Apply at the bottom of the properties window to save your changes.
Launching the shortcut should now lead you directly to the graphics setup menu.
