Easy to use, all you have to do is insert the disc and type 'GO' at the DOS prompt. We've included all the tools you need for fast easy access to the programs and their descriptions. The WordCruncher text retrieval software allows you to quickly access the description for any program you want. All the programs are indexed by title, filename, PC-SIG disk number, and every word within the program description. There couldn't be an easier way to find just the right program. The Narc utility, newly instituted with the tenth edition, allows you to look directly at all the compressed program files on the CD without having to download the program to your hard disk. So if you want to look at the programmer's notes or on-line documentation before using valuable hard disk space, you can.

Disk No: 2989 Disk Title: Funny Face II PC-SIG Version: S1 Program Title: Funny Face II Author Version: 11/90 Author Registration: $10.00 Special Requirements: 512K RAM, CGA/EGA, and a hard drive. FUNNY FACE II lets kids create wacky faces from a stock collection of mouths, noses, ears, hair, etc. Just like police artist drawings! (Well, almost!) Move the cursor to a picture of a nose on the screen, and you're shown pictures of dozens of different noses. Highlight your favorite, and it's transferred to the picture. Repeat this until you've created a totally wacky picture. An impressive feature is the ability to print these images or save them to .PCX files. Over 180 printers are supported.

FUNNY FACE II Copyright 1990 Z-ware < General Information > This is the second release of Funny Face and it has been significantly enhanced over the first version. See the features list for new functions. Funny Face II was designed to provide kids with a creative form of amusement. It allows children to create animation style faces without requiring them to to possess strong artistic skills. Many of the paint packages on the market today require some degree of skill to generate recognizable pictures. This often times creates frustration on the part of very young children when using the software. This was taken into consideration during the design of this software package. Funny Face II is achieving wide popularity. Download this program to see why! Funny Face II will run on IBM and compatible computers equipped with 512K of memory, a hard disk, and an EGA or CGA color monitor with a graphics adapter. < Features > EASE OF USE: Basic operation of the Funny Face II program can be achieved through the use of just two keys: The <Spacebar> will move the cursor, ultimately, to any of the usable menu or image frames. Pressing the <Enter> key will select the hilited option. Arrow directional keys are also supported for users who wish to get around quicker. IMAGE PRINTING, COLORING, SAVING, and LOADING: Images can be saved and retrieved from disk. Print support is available for 180 different printers. Coloring is supported in EGA and CGA modes. DEMO MODE: Random images can be created using the demo mode. Pictures created by the demo mode can be captured by pressing any key while the demo image is still on the screen. < Whats New? > COLORING: You can now color in the faces that you create. If you have and EGA monitor/card then 16 colors are supported. CGA modes support 4 colors. When you are in coloring mode you must select CLEAR to return to drawing mode. PRINTERS, PRINTERS, and MORE PRINTERS: Funny Face II will support 180 different dot matrix, laser, and color printers. Colored in images are printed in shades of gray. IMAGES, IMAGES, and MORE IMAGES: A second panel of hairs, eyes, noses, mouths, ears, eyebrows, and beards has been added. This extends the number of different faces you can create significantly. I was a little more creative when designing the new images so I think the second panels actually add some "fun" to Funny Face II. PICTURE LABEL: You can now personalize your pictures. Pressing the [F5] key will cause a prompt to be displayed requesting an image label. The label that is entered is displayed at the top of the screen, printed with the image, and stored in the PCX file if the image is saved. SOUND TOGGLE: Sound can now be toggled off/on by pressing the [F2] key. The status of the sound defaults to on each time Funny Face II is started. PCX IMAGE FORMAT: Images are now saved in the popular PCX format. This means that you can import some of your "Funny Faces" into other software programs that support the PCX format. < Keyboard > [F1] HELP Displays help screen. [F2] SOUND TOGGLE Toggles sound off / on. [F3] EXIT Returns user to DOS [F4] PRINTERS Allows user to select printer for printing images. This value is saved in the FF2.DAT file. [F5] PICTURE LABEL Prompts user for a text string which is placed in the box at the top of the screen. This label is printed with the image and is saved with the image when the save option is used. [DEL] Removes a piece of the face. Move the cursor onto one of the facial options on the main screen and press the [DEL] key. The selected option will be promptly removed. [ARROW KEYS] [SPACEBAR] Moves the cursor or coloring arrow. [ESC] Backs up one step. Exits program if on main screen or in coloring mode. < Additional Notes > When my daughter was 5 I used her as a beta tester for the original release of Funny Face. She is now 7 and contributed a great deal to the enhancements that have been made to Funny Face II. I have nieces and nephews that I've watched become entranced at the different faces that can be created. This package has even stood in the way of productivity at my office. It was a great deal of fun putting this package together. There have now been some 520 individual images drawn to support the menu options and image frames. Several utilities had to be written to support the development of this product. Funny Face II will continue to be distributed through the Shareware market. I have not seen a substantial amount of registrations to date, however, I am hoping that after viewing the significant number of enhancements I have made to this software that you will find that it is worth the $10.00 registration fee that I am requesting. Please help keep the cost of quality software down by supporting the Shareware concept and encourage your friends to do the same. Funny Face II can be freely copied and distributed. I own the copyright to the product and thus it cannot be used for commercial gain/profit without my prior consent. If you like the product and would like to become a registered user please send a check for $10.00 to: Z-ware 467-F Costa Mesa Terrace Sunnyvale, CA. 94086 Registered users will be notified of any updates that are made to the Funny Face II program. Your comments and/or suggestions are always welcomed as well. Thank you for your support and I hope you have as much fun using this package as I had developing it. Thank you, Brett Zamora Owner Z-ware (408) 732-0159
P C - S I G ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Welcome to the world of Shareware, state of the art software you can actually try before you buy. Shareware, a term coined in the early eighties, refers to the method of distribution chosen by the software authors. With shareware, you can receive a program and put it through its paces without having to pay for it. If you find the program useful, and choose to keep the program, then you pay a modest registration fee to the author.

Since 1982 PC-SIG has developed an unprecedented library of shareware programs, constantly updated, consistently strong in every category. Our library of shareware contains over 2700 titles divided into 120 logical categories. Every program we add to the library is thoroughly reviewed and tested to insure that each one meets the high standards of reliability and value we insist upon and you expect. As a result, our library doesn't contain every shareware program available, just those that really work. PC-SIG has grown into the premier distributor of shareware and and shareware information by producing shareware collections on CD-ROM, publishing an encyclopedia of shareware, and by publishing Shareware Magazine, a bi-monthly magazine distributed world-wide.

S H A R E W A R E M A G A Z I N E ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Shareware Magazine has distinguished itself as the only internationally distributed periodical devoted to the use and business of shareware. Shareware Magazine provides detailed reviews of new products, hard-hitting comparisons of shareware programs with regular retail software, and timely information about changes in the industry and the latest technology. Intriguing columnists and regular features add to the excitement. The beginners section sheds light on new user's concerns regarding everything from choosing the right operating system to alleviating the intimidation of using on-line systems. Educational sections focus on how low cost shareware can aid in classroom learning, curriculum development, and as a forum for discussing the impact of computers and technology in schools. Graphics Gallery renders expert advice and suggestions on how to better work with graphics, desktop publishing, CAD systems, and the Windows environment. Programmers benefit from others experience in developing new programs or polishing existing ones as well as choosing the right programming language. And columnists provide that subjective component, sometimes controversial, that calls for a closer look at the way we compute and how shareware effects what we do.
