1. Starting the game.
To run the game, click Start and choose Run... and type the path and
name of WDRAGON.EXE. You may also make a shortcut to WDRAGON.EXE either
in your start menu or windows desktop. If you have a slow computer, you
may wish to run the game with the "low sound quality" command line option,
-L. Simply add the -L after the name of the file. So, for instance, you
where the -L one runs the game with low sound quality.
When run, the game searches for a joystick. If it finds one, you can use
it to control the game. Button #1 is used for actions, like talking to people,
searching objects, bringing up the main menu, and selecting menu options.
Button #2 is used to cancel menus. Any menu which you entered voluntarily
can be exited with the cancel button, allowing you to leave the menu without
selecting a choice.
Alternative to the joystick, you may use the keyboard. On the keyboard,
the arrow keys are used to control the direction of the character and change
menu selections, CTRL is used as button #1, and SHIFT is used as button #2.
You may also toggle between windowed and full screen mode with alt-enter,
skip to another windows program using alt-tab, or quit the game immediately
Warrior Dragon is a role playing game, set in the time of myths and
dragons. You must battle enemies, find treasure and explore dark caves on
your way to defeating the notorious Dragon Slayer and saving your proud race.
By battling enemies, you can become stronger. You can earn experience
points, or XP, and find gold which may be traded for stronger weapons. If
you gain enough XP, you can go up a level, which increases your maximum hit
points, attack power, and defense power. The amount of XP you have
currently earned is displayed in the left menu, and the amount of XP you
need before going up a level is displayed in "status".
Hit points represent the amount of hits you can take before being
defeated. You have a certain amount of hit points, as displayed on the left
menu, and the enemy has hit points as well, although the amount isn't
displayed to you. If your maximum hit points increase, you will be able
to sustain more damage. You can get healed at the inn or by drinking potions
The game gives you the ability to save your game anywhere. Take advantage!
Save often, and don't just use one adventure log. If you are lost in a cave,
do not overwrite your main save game.
The further you travel in the world, the more difficult it is to
overcome the enemies. It is a good idea to go up enough levels in a
relatively safe zone before entering an unsafe zone. The more unsafe the
zone you train in, the less time it takes to go up a level, but the more
likely you will be overcome.
For optimal performance, do not run this game while running any other
