Game Maker 1.1 GAME MAKER
version 1.4

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. It is suited for grown-ups and children
from age 9 upwards (with a little help from a
parent). 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
Pacman, Breakout and a Peg game. These
are mainly provided as examples and not as
full-blown games.

A modern PC (preferably a Pentium) running Windows'95,
'98, 2000 or NT 4 is required. After installation the
program uses about 2MB disk space. The program
requires at least 65000 colors (high color, 16-bit). It
requires at least 800x600 screen resolution.

If you have a previous version of Game Maker installed,
better first uninstall it. (Games you made or changed will
stay intact.)

Now simply run gmaker.exe to install the program.
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.

GAME MAKER may be used free of charge, in any way,
for any purpose. See the enclosed licence file for
information on distributing the game.

After instalation you should have the following files in
the directory C:\Program Files\Game_Maker:

Game Maker.exe the Game Maker
zip32.dll Info-ZIP's zip utility
unzip32.dll Info-ZIP's unzip utility
Runner.exe a file used for creating stand-alone games
Documentation folder containing the following documents:
