***************************************************************** \ / Primordial Life -- Shareware v3.

21 / \ \/ -/\ Copyright (C) 1996-2003 Jason Spofford \ / ***************************************************************** Thanks for trying Primordial Life! Your screen is transformed into a artificial world where living biots can survive and multiply. The course of evolution can take many paths, resulting in thousands of biot shapes. Watch biots battle for survival. Don't be surprised if you end up spending hours watching the dynamics of evolution! >>> Please Note: Primordial Life 3.21 will not connect to, or >>> accept network connections from Primordial Life 3.16 or earlier. *** What is Primordial Life? *** Primordial Life is actually two programs. One program runs Primordial Life as a screen saver and the other runs Primordial Life inside a window on your Windows computer. A help file included with Primordial Life which explains the simulation in depth. Just run Primordial Life and select help. *** What is new in Primordial 3.21? *** Primordial Life 3.21 fixed a few bugs found in Primordial Life 3.2 and before. It also lets you use the mouse in the screen saver mode for Windows XP and Windows 2000. Primordial Life 3.2 improves networking by providing a Primordial Life server to automatically coordinate connections between biot ecosystems. At least 25% of you will need to accept connections on port 2088. If you have a firewall , don't forget to open the port. If you are using NAT (network address translatio n), Primordial Life will support it as well but only one of your computers can be configured to listen. There is no limit to the number of worlds you can intercon nect! Watch as the diversity of life increases as you expand the known biot universe. If you are a dial up user, I don't recommend using the network feature in the screen saver. Run the windowed program instead. When the screen saver starts, it might envoke the dialup dialog which will cause the screen saver to terminate immediately. If you dial up prior to using the screen saver, it should work for you. *** Primordial Life Installation Instructions *** Prim32.exe is a self extracting file. Chances are you already have installed this program since you are reading this file. Prim32.exe will install the Windows program and related files into the directory of your choice. It will also install the screen saver (Primordial Life 3,2.scr or PrimLife32.scr) into the \Windows\System for Win95 and into \Winnt\System32 directory for WinNT. <<<< <<<<
