StoryHarp & IF
StoryHarp & Java
Using an alternate settings fileStoryHarp saves some current settings in a settings file in your Windows directory. You can specify an alternate settings file (or no settings file) on the command line for StoryHarp. Normally you will not need to do this, but there may be circumstances where you can’t or don’t want to save your settings file in your Windows directory. To create a shortcut for StoryHarp with an alternate settings file in Windows 95/NT, Click the Windows Start button, then choose Settings, then Taskbar. Click the Start Menu Programs tab. Click Add. Click Browse and select StoryHarp.exe in the StoryHarp directory. In the command line edit box where the StoryHarp file name (with path) has just appeared, add an extra parameter, separated from the program name by a space, as follows. To specify an alternate settings file, add the parameter /i=file name. If the file name or directory has a space in it, you MUST put quotes around the whole parameter. For example, C:\StoryHarp\StoryHarp.exe “/i=c:\MyStories\StoryHarp Special.ini” To specify no settings file, add just /i. For example, C:\StoryHarp\StoryHarp.exe /i Click Next. Choose a folder to place the shortcut in, then click Next. Type a name for the shortcut. Make sure you give it a name that reminds you that you are using a special settings file or no settings file. Click Finish. Close the Taskbar Properties window. Try out your shortcut. For information on changing or removing shortcuts, see Using StoryHarp as a player only.
