Running with DOSBOX, it will keep doing that every time I do something.
How do I get it to stop.

The Warren is a roleplaying game about intelligent rabbits trying to make the best of a world filled with hazards, predators and, worst of all, other rabbits.

For me, it never stopped asking but I just hit 'enter' to skip through. Also, ramp up the speed of dosbox and you can get through a game in an hour, easy.

Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him. 2 Sam 14:14

If you are using the version from Abandonia, then just hit return, it goes away after a few times.

This is NOT a Chihuahua. It is a Sphynx cat. A bald, grouchy Sphynx cat who will bite you if you mistake him for a Chihuahua.

There is also a pdf of the manual available from Abandonia, in case your binary hasn't been patched. If it doesn't accent ENTER for an answer, you can get the correct answers from the pdf, and it will eventually stop asking.

For me it worked a bit differently. Hitting return did not bypass the manual verification - it just threw you out of the game. Typing in the correct word from the manual made the prompts go away. Then after installing the game on a Windows 7 machine where I had to run the game in DOSBox, it just wouldn't stop asking. I compared the config files of the two installs and noticed the verification flag wasn't getting set in the DOSBox one (even though other things like settings and high scores were getting saved properly). I changed it myself and the prompts went away.

Mine quit asking after I applied the 1.4 patch. You can get it at The Patches Scrolls. www.patches-scrolls.de/. It also fixes a few minor things. Actually The Patches Scrolls directs you to GameFront where you download it.
