6) Memory and Performance
Frogger requires at least 64 MB of RAM and a 500 MHz processor; the performance of the game will improve if you have more RAM and a faster processor. Regardless of your machine specs, you can maximize your available memory and increase the overall performance of the game by doing the following:
You will be able to play Frogger: The Great Quest with a gamepad, joystick, or with the keyboard. The game even supports PC gamepads with analog sticks! The Frogger program will automatically detect whether or not you have a game controller connected to your PC. If a controller is detected, the game will use the controller by default and the keyboard will be disabled. Only the ESC key will be active; you will be able to use ESC to pause and un-pause the game. When you press any other key, you will see the following message appear at the bottom of the screen: "Please unplug controller to use keyboard." If you wish to use the keyboard to control Frogger, you can unplug your controller from your PC at any time and play with the keyboard. However, if you wish to use your game controller, we recommend that you connect your controller to your PC before you start the Frogger program to ensure that it works properly.
Note: whether you are using a controller or the keyboard, you can always pause the game and bring up the pause menu by pressing the Esc key.
Frogger is best played with a gamepad, so we heartily recommend that you use a gamepad to play the game if you own one. Frogger specifically supports the Microsoft Sidewinder gamepads, and the Gravis Gamepad Pro. If you are playing the game with a different controller, we support all other controllers with the configuration listed below. If you are unsure of which button # matches up with the buttons on your controller, you can check this by going to the Start Menu, Settings, Control Panel, and double clicking on Game Controllers (or Gaming Options). Make sure your controller is connected; it should be listed in the window and the Status should be "OK". Click on Properties and you'll see a window with the controller buttons listed. Press each button on your controller and the corresponding button number will light up in the window.
