02 Requirements

For the program to run correctly, your system must meet the
requirements listed below. Suggestions are based on mere opinions.

IBM PC/XT/AT/386/486 or 100% Compatible
Video Graphic Array w/256K of Vid RAM (VGA)
128-192K of Available and Usable RAM

If your system meets all the requirements above, the program should run
without any difficulty. If you encounter an error, Please notify me.
























03 General Overview

Quick Intro Maker was designed to be easy to use. The main purpose is
to let artists, BBB sysops, groups and organizations make VGA Demo/Ad
programs without having to write their own.

This documentation will explain how to use QIM and will "talk" you
through a lesson, in which you will capture, view and compile a demo.



























04 QIM_CAP TSR Screen Saver

Allows you to capture VGA 320x200x256color Screens by pressing one key.
To Install the program type QIM_CAP. The TSR portion will take up
approximately 30k of RAM which can be released by simply rebooting the
system.

After the Screen Saver is installed you may capture a scrren by pressing
[Alt+S] (The Alt key first then the S, while not releasing the Alt key).
If an error occurs during saving, you will hear a sound code, which may
be identified by using QIM_ERR (Discussed in the next section).

Screens are captured under the file name of VGAxxxxx.SCR, where
xxxxx=0 to 99999. QIM_CAP always increases the screen numbers (xxxxx)
by one (1) after each screen saved. You are allowed to capture 100,000
screens each time you load QIM_CAP.





























05 QIM_ERR Sound Code Identification Program

To identify the sound codes that QIM_CAP makes during a session, you can
use QIM_ERR. When you load up you will see several error/process messages,
which have a certain sound code. To hear the code for a certain message
use the [Arrow Keys] to select the error/process and press [Enter].

Using this program you can compare the sound codes QIM_CAP makes and
identify the error/process that occured during the use of QIM_CAP.































06 QIM_VIEW Captured Screen Viewer

QIM_View can be used to view captured screens. In order to view a picture
all the user has to do is load QIM_VIEW and enter the screen file name
and press [Enter]. The user will see information about the image file
which inlcudes the maximum palette intensities, and number of colors that
appear in the image.

QIM_VIEW uses the Fade-In and Fade-Out routines to display all the
images, this way you can decide whether to use Fade-In and/or Fade-Out
in the compiled screen file.


































07 QIM_CMP & QIM_EXE Compiler

The compiler, is the single most important program in the process of
creating an Ad/Demo. It allows the user to convert the Screen file to
an executable (.EXE) file.

When and individual loads QIM_CMP, he or she will be prompted for
several options which affect the demo. The following paragraph will
explain each and every one of those options.

The first thing that QIM_CMP needs to know is the screen file that
the user wants to compile, which should be entered when prompted for.
Next the user will be asked if he or she wants to use the Fade-In
routines, which should be answered by [Y]Yes or [N]No. Same rules
apply for Fade-Out Routines, Fade-In Sound Effects, and Fade-Out Sound
Effects. Please feel free to experiment with these options, so that they
will best fit your requirements.

Please Note: QIM_EXE.EXE is to be used by QIM_CMP only, and will not
perform any special function if run by itself.



































08 "Talk" Through Demonstration

The following will step the user through a sample compilation.
Please pay attention and do everything exactly as it is written.

1 ... Run: QIM_CAP [If Error Occurs Attempt to Debug]
2 ... Use: A Gif Viewer (CShow, VGif) to view QIM_DEMO.GIF
in 320x200x256 Color Video Mode.
3 ... After the screen has been displayed press [Alt+S] until Sound Code.
[If Critical Error Occurs, Use QIM_ERR to Debug].
4 ... Exit the Gif Viewer to DOS Prompt.
5 ... If Needed use QIM_VIEW to look at the captured image. [VGAxxxxx.SCR]
6 ... Run: QIM_CMP [If Error Occurs Attempt to Debug]
7 ... Enter the Captured Screen file name, and answer all the questions.
8 ... After answered all questions, Press [C] to compile, [R] to Restart
compiler, or [ESC] to quit to DOS. (Press [C] at this time)
9 ... After compilation is complete, Exit to System and run the demo.

And that's it, you have a ready run Ad/Demonstration program. Enjoy.
