Online Support :ZZ-Darts
ZZ-Darts be played on Windows XP?"(v0.91e) (April 18,
ZZ-Darts v0.91e can be played almost
well on WinXP. But there is some annoying bug you
need to keep in mind when playing.
If you start ZZ-Darts on WinXP and
then focus to another window (by pressing Alt+Tab
keys), ZZ-Darts' window gets dark and you can no
longer continue the game until you quit and restart
The problem also occurs when you push
F1 key to read ZZ-Darts' help.
So, to play ZZ-Darts on WinXP,
Read its help before the game
starts by choosing "ZZ-Darts" -
"Playing instruction" from WinXP
start menu or double-clicking the help file
(index.htm) directly. Do not press F1 key
during playing the game.
Do not change the focused
window until the game ends.
Sorry for your inconvenience. I hope
to fix the problem in the future version.

"double-out" rule. ZZ-Darts is programmed
in compliance with this popular rule, so you need to
hit one of "doubles" (including bull's eye)
