Instructions - Colawars

                           David Jolley

This game will only run in low resolution, but these instructions 
should be read in medium resolution.

     Note:  This program was designed with the SHOOT'EM-UP 

     This program will run on any ST, but requires a color monitor 
and a joystick.  I am not sure if it is STE/TT compatible, as I do 
not have access to these machines.

     Note:  This program is shareware, if you like this game and 
play it frequently, then please send $5.00 to:

                           David Jolley
                       4294 South 3720 West
                  West Valley City, Utah  84120

     This fee will insure that more ELEVISION products will be 
released soon.


     NOTE:  If you un-ARCed this file with the 'Use Subdirectories' 
option, you may ignore the instructions about creating the 
EDITFILE folder.  

     On a blank disk you should have the following files:  
RUNGAME.PRG, LOGO.PC1, DESKTOP.INF(This must be the file that was 
and COLAWARS.PC1.  COLAWARS.ALL and COLAWARS.PC1 must be placed in 
a folder called EDITFILE.  This folder can be created by selecting 
the 'New Folder' option in desktop.

     If you have a hard disk then it is possible that 
you have a different copy of DESKTOP.INF than the one that came 
with this game.  If this is the case, you need to copy your own 
DESKTOP.INF onto the disk and install RUNGAME.PRG as an 
application.  To do this click once on RUNGAME.PRG and select 
INSTALL APPLICATION from the OPTIONS menu.  In the window, where 
it says 'Document Type', enter the letters SCK and click on OK.  
Now, save the desktop and you should be able to run the game 

These files must be present for COLAWARS to run 
properly.  If you are missing any of these files, send a blank 
disk, your name, address and $5.00 to the address mentioned above.

                         RUNNING COLAWARS

     If all the files are in their place, all you need to do in 
order to run COLAWARS is to double-click on COLAWARS.SCK in GEM 
desktop.  Make sure there is a joystick plugged into port 1(the 
non-mouse port).


     Dr. Zachary, a well respected scientist/adventurer from the 
planet Pep-Z9, was cruising through the universe in search of 
better soda pop for his people.  Reading his favorite comic books, 
he let the automatic controls take over.  Slowly he fell asleep, 
when he awoke he found himself stranded in a galaxy of mutant and 
evil soda pop worlds, controlled by the evil, gigantic, metallic 
mastermind, TITAN!!!  You must journey through the five worlds, 
including Earth, to find and kill Titan in order to return peace 
to the galaxy.  You must assume the identity of Dr. Zachary's 
alter ego, the superhero DR. PEP-Z!!!

                           HOW TO PLAY
