This is a module from the DINOSAVER screen saver. It is run using
the Windows desktop screensaver accessed from the Control Panel. A
Dinosaur runs across your screen and repeatedly leaps up, claws the
screen, and slides down, leaving a "rip" that eventually clears the
screen. Included are:
README.TXT - This file containing description and installation
DINOSHRD.SCR - Windows compatible screensaver.
This software may be distributed under the following conditions:
1. This file (READ.ME) is included.
2. It is distributed freely.
In order to run the DEMO DINOSAVER module you need to copy it
into the Windows directory and tell Windows to use it.
Copy the file DINOSHRD.SCR into the Windows directory on your hard disk.
For example, if you copied the file onto a 3.5" diskette drive, and this
is B: on your computer, then you would type:
"Copy B:\DINOSHRD.SCR C:\windows\*.*"
Next you need to tell Windows to run it. From the Control
Panel, double click on the Desktop Icon. When the Dialog box
appears, select "Dino Shred" from the list of screen savers.
This is done by moving down to the screen saver section and
clicking on the down arrow on the right side of the "Name"
list box. Once the list appears move the cursor to "Dino Shred"
and click on it. The Setup button allows you to turn on sound
(if you are using the PC speaker driver or sound board card) or
allows you to set how frequently the dinosaur leaps (Seldom,
Occasionally, or Often)
Take an expedition to the Mesozoic Era with DINOSAVER. Your
screen will be protected from phosphor burn-in by a massive
Brontosaurus who crushes your windows, by a ravenous T-Rex who
chases and devours your Icons, by a fearsome Triceratops who
attacks it, or by a Deinonychus who viciously shreds it. You will
also encounter apprehensive Struthiomimus eluding a frightful
Tyrannosaurus, a peaceful Brachiosaurus herd dining upon lush
vegetation, and Mesozoic sportsmen captured in their favorite
sports settings. Included are many other fun modules that
entertain and educate while protecting your monitor.
DINOSAVER includes user-configurable modules complete with
sound effects and on-line help plus two interactive modules: Dino
Trivia and Dino Engineering.
Dino Trivia satisfies your appetite for dinosaur facts by
providing over 1,000 challenging multiple-choice questions.
In the non-interactive mode, questions and answers are
automatically displayed for you. In the interactive mode the
computer measures your performance as you answer the
Dino Engineering allows you to measure your genetic
engineering skills by combining color-coded DNA strands into
fascinating new dinosaurs. The outcome of your engineering
is automatically displayed and the dinosaur's chance for
survival is assessed.
