Instructions - Arena

-               Arena                  -

	A game for two players.

 Working Notes

	Arena is happy to live in any folder called ARENA, but all the files 
in the ARENA folder on this disk must be kept in the same folder, otherwise
ARENA and CONFIG will not work - together, anyway.

    (Note directory = folder!)


	The usual method of control is for Player #1 to use Joystick #1,
and for Player #2 to use Joystick #2. Joystick #1 plugs into the mouse 

	Alternatively the numeric keypad may be used instead of 
Joystick #1.

	The five in the centre 
functions as a fire button.--------

     Since a lot of work went into this program, it is being distributed 
as Shareware, which means, if you like the game (ie play it more than five 
times!), then I, the copyright holder, humbly request a registration, with a 
fee of £2, which isn't a lot, is it? In return, Il'l send you a disk with 
a one player practice version of ARENA on, along with another PD game of mine, STARMAZE.

 	"This is the clever bit." This program lets you
play about with the laws of physics in the arena, to
your taste. You can play on a neutron star, surrounded 
by walls of Turkish Delight, if you so choose.

	CONFIG.PRG runs in medium resolution.

	Double click on CONFIG.PRG, and the drop
down menus will let you alter the variables 
governing the physical behaviour of objects
in the arena. When you have everything the way
you want it, click on the Reconfigure option
in the File menu. There will be some disc 
whirring as ARENA.TOS is read in, poked, and
written back to disc.

(How's that for a kludge?)
