Issues fixed[edit]

Extended memory manager error on launch[edit]

Error message: "Judge Dredd needs an extended memory manager to run. See the technical documentation for more details."
Set memory value[2]

Run this command before the game: set DOS16M=:4M (as part of a batch file, DOSBox configuration file, or entered manually).

Poor DOSBox performance on later levels[edit]

Set fixed cycles count[2]
  1. Edit the DOSBox configuration file.
  2. Change cycles=auto to cycles=fixed 21500.
