I read you can play a skirmish against the PC by running "keeper95.exe
-1player"

I have tried this, both in the "Run..." prompt on the Start menu and also
in DOS but my PC won't accept the parameter. Is there anyone out there who
can tell me what the stupid mistake I am making might be and let me know
how to play the skirmish?

Thanks

In some cases, you have to use " at the start and end of the parameter. ie
"c:\program files\bullfrog\keeper\keeper95.exe -1player"
Don't forget the "s.

Excuse my ignorance but what is skirmish mode?

Just wanted to tag on here and thank The Mighty Blob for solving my
skirmish problems -- I had been able to play it in Dungeon Keeper, but not
Deeper Dungeons.

Now I'd like my life back, please...

Personally, I found the skirmish mode to be a waste of time: the 2-, 3-,
and 4-player levels are balanced to make the level equally difficult for all
players.

The AI just isn't good enough to play against in a balanced game--it needs
to have a serious advantage over any skilled player in order to be a
challenge. I tried a few of these levels and swatted them with very few
problems. The worst difficulty I had was in keeping my Imps alive against
all the traps that some of the levels had.

But, of course, all of the AI's Imps were getting pegged by the traps on his
end, so...
