Q: When I try to install Chariots I get a black box that has no progress bar and seems to lock up, but it says please wait. What should I do?
A: Please let it continue installing. Do not close this window prematurely, it will close by itself. There is no progress bar currently with this stage of the installation. It is installing mandatory components that your computer needs to be able to run the game. This may take several minutes. Make yourself a cup of tea and and wait for it to get to the next phase of installation. Thank you for your patience!
Q: Chariots did not install the Directx or .NET files, Where do I get them?

Q: How do I run Chariots as a Dedicated Server for a LAN party?
A: After you have installed Chariots, you’ll need to download this file and put it in the same folder where your chariots.EXE is located. CLICK OR RIGHT CLICK HERE Then run this file on the computer that you want to be the dedicated server. This .BAT file was accidentally omitted from the release version of the game and will be included in an upcoming patch.
(in case the link doesn’t come through here it is, but I’d rather it not be in plain text on the webpage: http://www.chariotsgame.com/Support_Files/ChariotsDedicatedServer.bat )
