ScenarioMaker 3D, developer release 7
ScenarioMaker 3D is used to create 3D environments to be used in Sword
Dream 3D. Sword Dream 3D is a three-dimensional adventure gaming system for
the Macintosh. Your surroundings are in three-D (just like in Marathon?,
Doom? or Descent?). Still, this isn't a shoot-em-up videogame: it's a
think-first, act-later game. And it's fun for days, not minutes...
Dream 3D is distributed under the shareware system: try it first, pay if
you like it.
WHAT'S NEW FOR THIS VERSION
ScenarioMaker is Mac OS 8-aware. This means that my application can still
be used under System 7, but it gains new features if run under the new,
exciting Operating System from Apple.
* Dialog boxes are moveable
* Error messages contain an explanation of the steps needed to recover, and
* All windows and dialog boxes retain the Platinum Appearance (including
focus rings), even if the Systemwide platinum appearance is turned off for
compatibility reasons in the Appearance control panel.
* Windoids are for real - they float in front of other windows, and
disappear when you bring the application to the background.
* ScenarioMaker is ready for Switchable Themes - future versions of the Mac
OS will allow us to change the user interface. ScenarioMaker will
automatically take advantage in full of the new theme.
* Enhanced menu handling
AVAILABILITY, REQUIREMENTS, AND MISCELLANEA
Both Sword Dream 3D and ScenarioMaker are available in English, French
and Italian. A read-me file in the package describes the 3D features for
this program. A full-length manual in Microsoft Word 5.1 format can be
downloaded from ftp://ftp.comenius.com/pub/software/mac/dream/ The Sword
Dream 3D WWW site can normally be reached at
http://www.comenius.com/dream/ There you'll find full details on the
game, and will be able to download a copy. As I write this, the Internet
site at www.comenius.com (and the file download area at
ftp.comenius.com) are both down, and I don't know when they'll be back
online. We are creating a backup FTP area. If you have problems finding
the files you need, contact me via e-mail. My address is in the last
paragraph of this document. Hardware requirements: a 68030 or better Mac
OS computer, with a 14", 256 colors monitor, and System 7. ScenarioMaker
3D is freeware and can be freely re-distributed. For more info, use
