Saving movies to a floppy disk
do I save a movie on a floppy?
Movies can be written to a floppy disk through MAGIC THEATRE HAUNTED HOUSE. To write a floppy, first choose your movie from the library and stop it. Then from Control, select Import/Export and then select Write Floppy. Select the letter that represents your floppy drive and click OK.
When reading a floppy that has a movie exported onto it, you will see the movies pictogram. To read it just select that pictogram. Note: If your movie requires more storage than one floppy, use a backup program to copy it. Back up the .mtm file and all other files with the movies name.
do I add images to the libraries in Haunted House?
Advanced users may wish to create images in other graphics programs and import them into MAGIC THEATRE HAUNTED HOUSE. To do this create a 256-color image and save it as a .bmp file. (For best results and if your graphics program allows it, you should create it in the Magic.pal or Magic.cpl palette provided). In MAGIC THEATRE HAUNTED HOUSE Control, Import/Export, click Import bitmap, browse and find your picture and click OK. Then browse and find the MAGIC THEATRE HAUNTED HOUSE directory you want to store it in, open it, and click OK.
