The ICON OF TERROR for Windows

This horrific icon screams when touched,
argues and breaks when picked up, and
occasionally fires bullets. Be careful:

The Icon of Terror





The ICON OF TERROR is a cute little icon that has several .WAV files
inside the .EXE file. When started, it plays a few cool sounds, then
minimizes itself. Once an icon, it displays random insults and
one-liners, also making occasional sounds. Doing anything like
moving the icon, re-sizing it, maximizing, minimizing, etc. cause
the ICON to make sounds.

Overall, this program is designed to be something fun you can sit on
the desktop, then ignore. The occasional belch or glass breaking is
rather entertaining, and catches you by surprise most of the time!

The ICON OF TERROR will be perfect for a Windows Workstation, where
somebody might be doing too much work for their own good, or just
the kind of person who wants to have fun.









=============== TECHNICAL STUFF =======================================

The ICON OF TERROR consists of 6 .WAV files embedded in the .EXE
and also 100 insults + one-lined jokes. The program checks the system
timer, and shows a random insult, dependent upon the hundredth of a
second. The icon is the default Windows icon, since everytime I
tried to install my OWN ICON, the dang program locked up. If you are
a good Windows programmer in Turbo C++ 3.1 for Windows and want
to debug this perplexing problem, please contact me.

=========================================================================






NOTE: This plays through your default SOUND DRIVER. That could
include a SoundBlaster Pro, Adlib 16, plus many others.
If you don't have a sound board, please install the SPEAKER.DRV
speaker driver that is included in this archive.

To install the driver:

1) Load CONTROL PANEL
2) Click the DRIVERS icon
3) Click the ADD button
4) Now double click on the UNLISTED or UPDATED DRIVER
5) When you are asked for the path of the driver,
type in the path+filename of SPEAKER.DRV

6) Click OK, then click OK again
7) Now you must re-start Windows for the driver to take
effect. Once installed, the voices will now play through
the speaker (may not work on all systems).

Note that the quality is greatly reduced, but for a little
speaker, what do you expect!?!?










========== DISCLAIMER =================================================

The author will not be responsible for any insults that the
user does not like, nor something the user takes too personally.
If ya just don't like to be insulted, just don't use this
program.

=========================================================================























This program is free. However, see the enclosed CATALOG.COM
file for a great deal on an awesome set of utilities.
