Most of the demos can be started by a simple doubleclick, when the
environment is set as the readme-file tells you. The meaning of these
keywords is as follows:
PAL – Your workbench must run on PAL
NoAGA – AGA must be deactivated (e.g. by « Early Startup Control »)
NoCache – The prozessor caches must be deactivated
NoQuit – The demo can’t be stopped
NoA4000 – Will not run on A4000
In the tools directory you will find some programs you can use to set some
of the parameters that need to be changed for that every demo will run on
nearly every computer.
Also in the main directory you’ll find some setup programs, that will help
you change the environment.
Assigns – This temporary adds some directories on this CD to the system
path of your computer. This is important to start programs, which
may not be in your standard system path.
Colors – Changes your system’s colors so that all icons on this CD will be
Screen – Switches to an eight color PAL resolution. Please remember that
most demos will only start, when your workbench is in PAL
The settings you change with « Screen » and « Colors » can be permanently fixed
when you afterwards start the prefs programs « Screenmode » and « Palette » and
save the actual environment. The assigns can’t be permanently build into
user-startup, because you don’t always have this CD in your computer and
you would otherwise get system errors. You can instead copy all the
necessary data from the SYS directory of this CD to your system path.
Before doing this, please check the version numbers, so that you don’t
replace newer versions with older ones !
When you think of this you will have much fun with this CD. Finally
