Action Graphics is an amusement program based on the old "Erector Set"
concept of building things (on your screen) and making them move. The
mouse is used to select any of several graphic objects (circle, ellipse,
line, triangles, rectangles, gear, etc.) or action icons which include
Move, Resize, Burst, Rotate, Attach, Set Speed, Equate, Align,
Duplicate, Scale, Undo, and several others. The ability to attach
objects to each other, and have the actions affect the entire group,
makes this a unique and fun program every computer enthusiast will want
to try.

Although the program is quite easy to use - you just click on the icon
you want - additional help text about each object and action is
available online while running the program. The help text also
discusses the expanded actions available when you double click on the
icons. To start, read the first page of the help text. Then, after
playing with the program for awhile, read about each object and action
to learn about their particular details to become proficient in using
Action Graphics.

SHAREWARE DISTRIBUTED PRODUCT

buying it. A product distributed via Shareware is not "free software".
If you try a Shareware program and continue using it, you are expected

"Action Graphics" and "Buy Me" demonstration displays.

Additional data files showing construction techniques are included

COPYRIGHT

Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software, and the
copyright holder retains all rights, with the following exception. The
unregistered version may be freely copied and distributed. It is in
fact encouraged. In fairness to persons receiving this program, they
should be made aware that this is a Shareware distributed product. The
registered version may not be copied or distributed without written
permission of the author.



COMMERCIAL USAGE

Because of the capability to create action messages and to sequence
displays using the demo feature, this product may have a unique and
valuable commercial usage. NO limitations are placed on the commercial
usage of a REGISTERED version of this product. Commercial usage of an
unregistered version is prohibited.



HARDWARE

Required: IBM AT or compatible computer (10 MHz or faster) with 512K
RAM, VGA monitor, and a mouse.

Optional: Epson FX or LQ compatible dot matrix printer or HP Laser Jet
II compatible printer. Whenever reasonably possible other printer will
be supported for those users who provide the necessary technical
documentation.



INSTALLATION AND RUNNING INSTRUCTIONS

Depending on the form in which you received this product, portions of
these instructions may not apply.

Make a directory on your hard disk using the DOS mkdir command. Use the
DOS copy command to copy the diskette to the directory. Change to the
newly created directory and enter "action" to run the program. Example:

mkdir c:\action
copy a:*.* \action
cd \action
action

The program begins with a one minute repeating demo that can be
terminated by clicking a mouse button. Click on the 'More' box and then
the 'Help' box for additional instructions.

Incompatable mouse driver software is indicated when the demo figures
display OK but nothing happens or the program hangs up when you click a
mouse button. This problem can be resolved by using the Microsoft mouse
driver which is available in the \action directory. In your CONFIG.SYS
file activate the Microsoft driver with this device=c:\action\mouse.sys
statement. Remove the old mouse driver statement from your CONFIG.SYS
file or more likely from your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. Be sure to note what
the old statment was in case the Microsoft driver does not work with
your mouse. If you need help with this, feel free to give me a call at
(801) 272-6238.
