INSTALLING:
-----------

The program requires X11 with GL/GLX libraries.



USAGE:
------
In the directory containing the compiled program type:

bash ./runme


Note that runme is a script that
starts the compiled program:
./et-game
with a configuration file name as the argument.


RULES OF THE GAME AND KEYBOARD ACTIONS:
--------------------------------------

In each round the player has to collect 10 objects randomly scattered
in a 3-dimensional scene.

The player can navigate by pressing
'b'/'f'/<Arrow keys>/<Home>/<End>/<Space> (with or without <Shift> key).
(Warning: Keyboard CapsLock must be off.) 

After each round he receives 1000000/((s+1)*(s+1)) points,
where s is the time in seconds of the round.
Then a "teleport gate" appears in some random place
that can be used to move the player to the next stage.


CONFIGURATION FILE OF THE GAME
------------------------------

Configuration file is a sequence of the file names.
Each of these files contains a shape designed
with E.T. EDITOR.
The first file contains the shape of the collected objects.
The second file contains the shape of the teleport gate.
The remaining files contain designs of the 3D scenes
used in the stages of the game.

You can extend the game by designing your own stages and adding
their names to the configuration file. 
(At this moment you can find E.T. EDITOR at https://github.com/mki1967/et-edit )
