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. For the last nine years, PC-SIG has been providing shareware and public domain software to its customers and members. 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.

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.

Programmers benefit from others experience in developing new programs or polishing existing ones as well as choosing the right programming language.

WinPoker Version 1.0 A Video Poker Game for Windows 3.0 Dean Zamzow 1171 Cordelia Ave San Jose, CA 95129 Compuserv ID 73500,3156 WINDOWS VIDEO POKER - VERSION 1.0 WinPoker is distributed as user supported software, popularly referred to as SHAREWARE. You may freely copy and distribute the program so long as it is not modified and this documentation file accompanies it. A nominal service charge may be assessed for copying and distributing the program so long as it does not exceed $7. If you use the program you are expected to compensate the author for his efforts. This encourages the continued development of better quality programs which are supported by their users. DOUBLE UP OPTION TO REGISTERED USERS: The registration fee for WinPoker is $15 U.S. Dollars. An order form has been included with this package and is in the WINPOKER.ORD file. Just print this form, fill it out, enclose payment, and mail it to me. Those who register now, will receive an updated copy of WinPoker that has the Double Up Option included. This is an option found in some Nevada Casino Poker machines that allows the chance to double your winnings. It adds an exciting twist to playing conventional video poker. This option is only available to registered users, so if you would like this addition to the standard Video Poker, register today. Also, the unregistered version has a reminder screen that pops up after about every 50 hands. The registered version does not have this pop up screen. THE FILES: There should be three files included with WinPoker winpoker.exe - The executable winpoker.doc - This file winpoker.ord - The order form THE GAME: This game is modeled after the video poker machines that are found in most Nevada casinos. It is your basic five card draw video poker game, with odds paid based on the hand you draw. After selecting DEAL, the computer will display 5 cards face up. You can hold any, all, or none of the five cards. Any cards not held are replaced with new cards from the deck upon hitting DEAL again. Your payoff is based upon the amount bet and the odds below ROYAL FLUSH - 4000 Coins if 5 coins bet, otherwise, 300 FOR 1 STRAIGHT FLUSH - 50 FOR 1 4 OF A KIND - 25 FOR 1 FULL HOUSE - 8 FOR 1 FLUSH - 5 FOR 1 STRAIGHT - 4 FOR 1 3 OF A KIND - 3 FOR 1 TWO PAIR - 2 FOR 1 PAIR OF JACKS OR BETTER - 1 FOR 1 For those of you who are not familar with odds, the word FOR means how much is returned FOR a unit bet (The amount is already bet and is NOT returned) When odds are quoted as TO such as 1 TO 1 then you get 1 unit for 1 unit bet, plus the original bet is return. 1 FOR 1 on the other hand, is like a push, you just get your bet back. Well thats it for my discussion of video poker. If you would like more information on the game itself, I would suggest going to your local bookstore and getting a book on casino games. A lot of the more popular ones include a chapter on Video Poker Machines due to their increased popularity in casinos. THE CONTROLS: MOUSE USERS - The RIGHT mouse button will deal the cards at the beginning of a new hand, AND when you need replacement cards. ( An alternate way to deal or start play is to click on the "Deal / Play" menu item once with the left button.) The LEFT mouse button is used to toggle the HOLD on the cards you want to keep. Just click the left button anywhere inside the card you want to keep. Click a second time to free the HOLD. The BET menu is where you can change your bet. The game starts with 5 coins bet, and you can change the bet from 1 to 5 coins. Once the bet is set, it will stay that way until you change it via the BET menu. The accelerator keys are F1 (for 1 coin) to F5 (for 5 coins). Thats all you need to play the game with a mouse. Right button to start the game ... left button to hold the cards you want to keep ... right button again to deal the "new" cards. KEYBOARD USERS - To start play and deal the cards, hit ENTER. An alternate method is to use the hot key (Alt-D) to activate the "Deal / Play" menu item. To hold the cards you want to keep, enter the numbers 1 thru 5 with 1 correspinding to the card on the far left and 5 corresponding to the card on the far right. To change the bet use the Alt-B hot key to get to the BET menu item and cursor down to the bet you want. An alternate, is to use the Accelerator Keys. F1 to bet 1 coin to F5 for 5 coins. Remember, once the bet is set you don't need to enter it each hand, unless you want to change it. OTHER OPTIONS - The other option is to change the background color. From the options menu item choose colors then pick one of the three available colors (Black, Blue, or Green) BANKROLL - The bankroll will start at 0 whenever WinPoker is started. If you end up with a positive number, thats is your winnings, if negative, that is what you would have lost. There is currently no option for the player to change the bankroll. MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION: This game is a Windows 3.0 application. It will not run in real mode of windows 3, nor will it run in prior versions of Windows. It was designed for a standard VGA display. Users of EGA displays will not see the bottom of the cards. I am willing to fix this for the next release if there is any demand. (Be sure to let me know via compuserv or U.S Mail and I will send you a copy when I add the EGA support). It was not tested on any higher resolution than 640 X 480 (VGA). I only tested this program with a standard VGA display on an IBM PS/2 Model 70 with 3 MB of RAM. It works in both the standard, and 386 enhanced mode of Windows 3.0. If there are problems, I would like to know about them. Leave me a note on Compuserv or send me mail and I will try to respond as soon as I can. THE FINE PRINT: This software is for entertainment purposes only, and is sold "as is", without any warranty as to performance or any other warranties whether expressed or implied. Because of the many hardware and software environments into which this program may be used, no warranty of fitness for a particular purpose is offered. The user must assume the entire risk of using the program. Any liability of the seller will be limited exclusively to product replacement or the refund of the registration fee.

WinSolit is created to run under Window 3.x. This is the very first version of this program and keyboard support is limited. This will be fixed in future versions. WinSolit consists of three files: WINSPIDR.EXE, WINSPIDR.HLP and WINCARDS.DLL All three files must be kept in the same directory OR WINCARDS.DLL and WINSPIDR.HLP may be put in the WINDOWS directory. If you get errors that say WINCARDS.DLL is not found or the help file is not found, you may NEED to copy these two files to the WINDOWS directory. WinSolit will create a file called WINCARDS.INI in the WINDOWS directory. WINCARDS.DLL is copyright 1992 by John A. Junod and may only be distributed with WINSOLIT.EXE or WINSPIDR.EXE. WinSolit is a Windows conversion of a program from myself called EGA-Solitaire. WinSpidr is a Windows conversion of a program from myself called EGA-Spider. 92.01.01 First released version 92.01.04 Bug fix: strange things happened on exit (improper resource deletion)
