PM FOOTBALL
by
John Wagner


PM Football is a Presentation Manager program that requires OS/2 1.2 or later.
You can call your own plays, or let the program do it. The possible plays you
can call are displayed by clicking on HELP.

GAME Menu
---------
There are several characteristics that must be specified for each game, which
can be changed at any time:

- The names of the teams, and which is the home team.
- The overall strength of a team. Stronger teams tend to
score more points, and beat up on weaker teams.
- The offensive play-calling mode for each team:
AUTO means a play is selected by the program.
MANUAL means you call plays.
PROMPT means that the program makes the calls,
but must press SPACE to begin each play.
- The pace of the game (how fast messages are displayed).


OPTIONS Menu
------------

You can also control other game-related options:
- Whether sound (whistles, cheers, etc.) is available.
- The team colors (for the end zones and fans in the stands).
- The field conditions, which affect things like passes and field goals.
- Whether the game clock runs in real time (doesn't work yet).
- Whether to display statistics automatically after each quarter.
- Whether to second-guess questionable calls (like punting on first down).


Enjoy!
