Game Maker 4.0 GAME MAKER
version 4.3

written by Mark Overmars

Writing computer games normally is a lot of work
and requires skill in programming. So wouldn't it
be nice if you could make your own games in an
easy way? GAME MAKER was written to do just that.
It allows you to make games like Pacman by just
using some simply clicking and drag-and-drop with
your mouse. But even though it is simple to use,
GAME MAKER allows you to make appealing games, with
animated graphics, backgrounds, sounds, etc.

GAME MAKER comes with a collection of freeware
images and sounds to get you started. Also there
are a number of example games, in particular
versions of popular games like Asteroids, Pacman
and Breakout.

A modern PC (Pentium or higher) running Windows'95,
'98, ME, XP, NT4 or 2000 is required. After installation
the program uses about 10 MB disk space. The program
prefers 65000 colors (high color, 16-bit).
It requires at least 800x600 screen resolution.
DirectX 5 or higher is required (not included).

To install GAME MAKER simply run gmaker.exe.
Installation creates an entry in the Start menu from
which you can run the program or read the documentation.
You can uninstall the program in the Configuation panel.

If you are currently using version 3 of GAME MAKER, this
version will remain available and can be used for your
old games. Version 4 cannot read games created with
Version 3 or earlier.

If you are using an earlier version, better uninstall
it first. Games you created with it will not be removed.

GAME MAKER may be used free of charge.
See the enclosed license file for
information on distributing the games you create
with it.

Developing GAME MAKER does cost time and money.
You are strongly encouraged to make a donation to
support the further development. See the item
