Downloading and running CyberPawn
- Step #1 - You must have Java 1.2 or greating installed on your system. If you don't, you can get it from http://java.sun.com/. This site also contains tutorials and other documentation for working with Java.
- Step #2 - Create a directory to house all the CyberPawn files (e.g. c:\cyber).
- Step #3 - Download support.zip. Unzip this file into the CyberPawn directory. This contains third party Java archive (.jar) files used by CyberPawn.
- Step #4 - Download cyber.zip. Unzip this file into the CyberPawn directory. This contains the core CyberPawn engine (pawn.jar), sample pawn controllers, and scenario files (*.cpx).
- Step #5 - Run the cyber.bat batch file.
- This file assumes that Java is in your PATH. If not, either add it to your PATH, or add the name of the directory where java.exe resides onto the beginning of the line in cyber.bat.
- defaults.cpd includes the name of the default scenario to list. It also includes a path that points to where to find the scenario files. It defaults to c:\cyber. Change this if needed.

Running a scenario. The first list shows you all the scenario files in the directory listed in defaults.cpd. The second one lists the ids of all the scenarios in the currently selected file. Choosing Start loads and runs the currently selected scenario. Pause pauses and unpauses the currently running scenario and Stop ends it.
Zoom/pan. While the scenario is running, you can zoom and pan the display. Clicking the left button zooms in on the selected point. The right button zooms back out centered on the selected point. The arrow keys will pan the view.
Objectives. Information about objectives for the scenario are currently printed out to the DOS window that started the program.
