THE TIM CONTINUUM

The Tim Continuum is a copy protect system built into Planets.

The goal for the Tim Continuum is to prevent people from
giving away registered copies of the game.

The Tim Continuum checks to see if the TRN files are coming from
different computer systems with the same registration codes.

The registration codes are generated when UNPACK and MAKETURN are
run. If there are more then one players files in the directory
when UNPACK and MAKETURN are run the registration codes are linked
and a special code added that tells the HOST that the TRN files
all came from the same computer in the same directory. This
tells the host that you are playing more then one player in the
same directory, which is okay. This allows a person or
group of people to play more then one race in a modem game or
host a game in local mode.

Tim Continuum rules:

1) You can only place your registered copy on one computer.

2) If you are playing more then one player in a modem game
you must:

a) Download both (all) RST files from host system first
b) UNPACK all RST files at the same time in the same
directory
c) Play PLANETS. You can run and exit PLANETS as many times
as you wish during the day.
d) MAKETURN all TRN files at once in the same directory
e) Upload your TRN files

3) If you are playing in a local mode with a group of players:

You may use TURN.BAT if you wish.

or

a) UNPACK all players RST files at once in the same directory
b) Play PLANETS. You can run and exit PLANETS as many times
as you wish during the day.
c) MAKETURN all TRN files at once in the same directory
d) run HOST


4) The host system can see who the PLANETS.EXE are registered to
by reading REG.LOG.

5) When the Tim Continuum attacks a error message shows up in
ERROR.LOG on the host system.

6) All other players will recieve a message when the Tim Continuum
attacks an enemy player.
