Overview

Jump Gate is an add-on utility for VGA Planets 3.5 that takes
advantage of the AUXHOST features found in HOST 3.20. This add-on provides
the capability for players to Build, Attack, and Repair Jump Gates as well
as using them as a form of travel.

With the convienence of controlled hyperspace travel comes risk.
Each time a ship travels via Jump Gate, there is a small chance that an
alien ship will exit the destination Jump Gate with the traveller. The
aliens are a warrior race, intent on conquering all that they see.
They will conquer the entire Echo Cluster unless stopped.

Dan & Dave's Install Program
Version 1.00

INSTALL.EXE
-----------

To run the install program, use the Change Drive (CD)
command to set the floppy drive that the install program is
located on as the default drive.

EXAMPLE: CD A:

Now type INSTALL to run the install program.

Use your mouse to click on the Add-on programs that you are
going to install. If the box has an 'X' in it then it is
selected for installation.

EXAMPLE:

[X] Jump Gate {selected}
[ ] Asteroid {not selected}
[X] Tachyon {selected}
[X] RacePlus {selected}

In the Path To Host text box, type in the DOS path that has
the VGA Planets host files in it.

EXAMPLE: C:\PLANETS

You are now ready to proceed with the installation. Click
on the OK button to proceed. If for some reason you do not
want to proceed with the installation, click on the CANCEL
button.

After you click on the OK button, the program will try to
locate HOST.EXE in the DOS path that was entered in the Path
To Host test box. If it cannot find it, a message box will
appear informing you that it was unable to locate HOST.EXE
and ask you if you wish to install anyway. If you do, press
YES, otherwise press NO and you will stop the installation.
If HOST.EXE is located, the installation will continue with
a few messages letting you know what is happening. When the
installation is complete, a message box will appear
indicating that the installation has finished. Click on OK
and you are ready to use your new add-ons.

Be sure to run the configuration programs before running
HOST.
