INSTALLATION

============

To install MVP Word Search for Windows, place the distribution disk in drive

A or B of your computer. From Program Manager in Windows, choose File | Run.

If you put the disk in drive A, type A:\SETUP and press enter. If you put the

disk in drive B, type B:\SETUP. If the files are already in a directory on

your hard drive, enter the PATH\SETUP. Follow the directions on the screen to

install the software.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

===================

To run MVP Word Search for Windows, you must have a 80286 or better with a VGA

graphics adapter and monitor. Minimum memory required is 1 megabyte.

Requires Windows 3.1 or higher. A printer and audio device are optional.

OVERVIEW

========

MVP Word Search for Windows is an easy to use computerized version of a word

search puzzle. Word search is a puzzle in which you must find all the words

in the word list in the diagram of letters. The words can be found in any of

the eight directions (right, left, up, down, and the four diagonals).

You choose the words and let Word Search for Windows do the rest. Want the

words scrambed for a greater challenge? Not a problem. How about print out

a copy of the puzzle to take on a trip? The puzzle can be printed using any

font installed in Windows. Have an audio card? Word Search for Windows will

play music in the background while you search for words.

GETTING STARTED

===============

After starting the WS1.exe file, choose the Word List menu at the top. To

choose a puzzle, you can either use one installed in the menu, or choose

Select and then double click on one of the lists. The puzzle is randomly

generated using the word list you choose. To circle one of the words in the

puzzle, click the left mouse button on the first letter, and drag without

releasing to the last letter. The word should be circled as you go. Release

the mouse button, and if it is one of the words in the list, it will be

circled and removed from the list (items removed from the list are grayed out).

Continue to do this until all words in the list are circled. Once the puzzle

is solved, you can repeat these same steps to play again.

PRINTING PUZZLES AND SOLUTIONS

==============================

If you have a default printer setup for Windows, you can print out a puzzle to

play later, or give to others. From the Word List menu, choose the puzzle you

want to print. The puzzle should appear on the screen when you do this. Now

choose Print Puzzle from the File menu and the puzzle will be printed. You can

also print out the puzzle anytime you are playing. Even if you have already

circled some words, they will not be circled on the printed copy.

To print the solution to a puzzle, choose a puzzle as described in the above

paragraph. Then choose "Print Solution" from the puzzle menu. The solution

will be printed.

ADDING, DELETING, AND EDITING WORD LISTS

========================================

You can create your own word lists with Word Search for Windows. To do this,

select the Word List menu, then choose Editor. This will bring up a window

from which you can add a new word list, or delete or edit an existing word

list. To add a new word list, click on the Add button. This will bring up the

word list editor with no words in it. Click on the title entry field, and

enter a title for the word list. The title can be up to 30 characters long,

including spaces. This name is only used for referencing the word list. This

word will not appear in the puzzle itself. To add words to the list, click on

the entry field near the center of the window, and type a word. The word must

be between three and fourteen characters long, including spaces. The spaces

will not appear in the puzzle, only in the word list for readability. The

word must be composed of characters (A-Z) and spaces, or digits (0-9) and

spaces. All the words in the list must be either words or numbers. You can

not mix them in the same list.

Therefore, to create a list of numbers, all you need to do is make the first

one a number, and then all the remaining ones will need to be numbers.

Another limitation is that substrings are not allowed. For example, if the

word "planet" is in the list, you cannot add the word "interplanetary." When

users see "planet" in "interplanetary" in the puzzle, they might try to circle

it and get upset when it is not considered a word. When you have the word

typed, either press the ENTER key on the keyboard, or click on the Add button.

Continue to do this until you have all the word you want in the list. The

maximum number of words allowed in the list is 36. If you make a mistake, or

decide you want to remove a word, highlight that word in the list by clicking

on it with the mouse. Then click on the Delete button, and the word will be

removed from the list. When you are finished with the word list, click on the

OK button. Clicking on Cancel will discard any changes you made.

To edit an existing word list, click the mouse on the word list to edit, and

click on the Edit button. You can also double click on the word list to edit

it. Follow the same steps in the paragraph above to add or delete words. You

can also modify the title by clicking the mouse in the title entry field, and

editing the value.

To delete a word list, click the mouse on the word list, and click on the

Delete button. The word list will be deleted, and also removed from the menu

(if it was installed into the menu).

EXCHANGING PUZZLES WITH OTHERS

==============================

If you have some word lists that you would like to give to a friend, you can

transfer them as a .TWL file that they can load into their copy of MVP Word

Search for Windows. To do this, choose Transfer Out from the Word List menu.

A file dialog will appear. Type the name of the file you wish to save them as.

If you don't type an extension, .TWL will automatically be added. If the file

does not exist, it is created. If it already exists, you will be adding to

the existing contents. After you have selected a filename, a dialog will

appear with a list box containing all your current word lists, along with a

list box of all the word lists in the file you specified. To add word lists

to the .TWL file, choose one or more word lists in the "Current Word Lists" by

clicking on them. Next click on the right arrow button, and the word lists

will be placed in the file. Once you have added all the word lists to the file

that you want, click on the OK button, and the file will be saved.

To load word lists from a .TWL file into your game, choose Transfer In from

the Word List menu. A file dialog will appear. Type the name of the file

containing the word lists. If you do not specify an extension, .TWL will

automatically be added. After choosing the filename, a dialog box will appear

with a list box containing your existing word lists, along with another list

box containing the word lists in the file. Choose one or more word lists from

the "Word Lists in File" list box, and click on the left arrow button. The

word lists will be added to your existing lists.

INSTALLING WORD LISTS IN THE MENU

=================================

The Word List menu can contain up to ten word lists. This provides a way to

quickly access commonly used lists. You can choose which word lists (up to

ten) to have in the menu. Choose the Options menu, and then Word List Menu.

To add word lists to the menu, select one or more word lists in the "available

word lists" list box (on the left). Click on the right arrow button (-->) and

the word lists will be added. To remove word lists from the menu, select one

or more word lists in the "word lists in menu" list box, and click on the left

arrow button (<--).

SETTING THE DIFFICULTY LEVEL

============================

Word Search for Windows provides three difficulty levels. EASY does not place

words diagonally. MEDIUM (which is the default) places words in all eight

directions (including dialonals). The HARD level is for those that may not

feel challenged by the MEDIUM level. Don't get too confident if you think you

found a word, because on the HARD level, words that look a lot like the word

you're looking for may appear in the puzzle.

To set the difficulty level, choose Options, and then choose Difficulty. Click

on the difficulty level you want, and click on the OK button. You must select

a new puzzle for the change to become effective. The difficulty level for the

current puzzle is always displayed in the status bar at the bottom of the

screen.

DISPLAY OF WORD LISTS

=====================

For those who would like a greater challenge, MVP Word Search for Windows

allows you to scramble or hide the word list.

Scrambling the word list means that the words in the word list on the left of

the screen are scrambled, but the word in the puzzle is the same as the

original word. You can either try to unscramble the word, and then look for

it in the puzzle, or look through the puzzle for words that look like they

belong to the current title (for example, if the title is US Presidents, look

for the name of a president in the puzzle, and circle it).

Hiding a word list will only display the title above the puzzle, but you will

not be told what any of the words in the list are. You will have to search

through the puzzle for words that your think belong to the title. If you

circle a correct word, it will be circled and displayed in the word list.

To choose the display type, choose either Scrabled, Hidden, or Normal from the

word list display submenu in the Options menu. This will instantly change the

way the word list is displayed. A check is displayed next to the menu item

that is currently selected.

SCRAM is displayed in the third pane of the status bar at the bottom of the

screen when scrambling is turned on. HIDDEN is displayed in the pane if the

word list is hidden, and NORMAL is displayed in the pane if the word list is

displayed normally.

CHANGING THE FONTS

==================

Any TrueType fonts installed in Windows may be used. The point size is fixed,

but you can choose the font, along with whether you want it bold or italic.

To set the display font, choose Options, and then choose Display Font. This

will display the font dialog box. From here select the font that you would

like, and click on the OK button. The display will instantly change to the

font you choose.

To set the print font, choose Options, and then choose Print Font. Select the

font you would like, and click on the OK button.

ENABLING/DISABLING SOUND EFFECTS AND MUSIC

==========================================

Word Search for Windows will play sound effects when you circle a word or

solve a puzzle (if you have an audio card installed). To disable the sound

effects, choose Options, and then choose Sound Effects. To enable the sound

effects, choose the same menu item. A check will appear next to the menu item

when sound effects are enabled.

The music being played while play a game can also be disabled. Choose Options,

and then Music. To enable the music, choose the same menu item. A check will

appear next to the menu item when music is enabled.
