About Spacestation Pheta for Macintosh
Spacestation Pheta is a fast, multi-screen, climbing game. Each screen
contains surprises such as transporters, secret ladders, materializers,
cannons, trampolines, and many more! There are 100 built-in screens plus
an editor to create your own screens. A "show me the solution"
feature can help if you get stuck. Other features include printable on-line
help, digitized sounds, and color graphics. The game runs on almost all older
Macintosh computers, from the black and white MacPlus to the PowerMacs.
The game will run under the Mac Classic emulator under OS X but does not run
on the Leopard OS.
You can play 10 of the 100 built-in screens until you register for the
full version by paying the shareware fee of $9.95 (U.S. dollars).
Adding Titles To Your Screens
In the editor, press Apple-Shift-T and within 2 seconds click the mouse
where you want a title to appear. A dialog box will prompt you for a
title, font, and size. Fonts can be the basic Macintosh fonts 0 through
14, which includes: system font = 0, application font = 1,
New York = 2, Geneva = 3, Monaco = 4. Font sizes can be the even number
sizes 12 through 26. This feature requires a registered copy and you
can only make titles for your own screens (not the Pheta Main Screens).
If you use the Set Solution feature after you add a title, the title
will be erased. A long title might also "mess up" the end of a long
During game play, press Apple-Shift-O (the letter O) to fill up the
spaceman's oxygen. You cannot earn a high score that game if you use
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I distribute screens I made for Spacestation Pheta?
A: Yes! You must include a description that says a registered copy
of Spacestation Pheta is required to play the screens. However, you cannot
distribute the Spacestation Pheta program itself unless it is an unregistered
Q: The arrow keys don't move the spaceman?
A: By default when you first install Spacestation Pheta the keys
are set as: A = up, Z = down, K = left, L = right, SPACE = jump. You can
change the keys used to move the spaceman by selecting Game Options
from the Editor menu. Then you can pick whatever keys you want to
move the spaceman by clicking the buttons under the Keyboard Controls
section, and then pressing the key to control that direction.
Q: Does the game run under OS X or OS Leopard?
A: No, the game was designed for older versions of the Macintosh OS,
and will only run under Mac OS Classic or the Mac OS emulator in OS X.
Q: I can't save the changes I made to screens in the editor?
A: If you have not yet registered the game, you cannot save changes.
You can also not save changes to the 'Pheta Main Screens.' If you want
to change these screens first, select Create Game File from the
Editor menu. Then go back and forth between your new file and the
'Pheta Main Screens' by selecting Change Game File from the Editor
menu, and use the Copy and Paste under the Screen
menu to copy from the main screens to your own screens. You will then
be able to save changes to the screens in your own screens file.
Q: Sometimes the game crashes when it first opens?
A: This is rare, but happens on some Macs when running older
versions of Spacestation Pheta. Make sure you have the latest version.
Also make sure you remove any older versions of the game from your hard
drive, otherwise when you open a screen file you cannot be sure which version
of the game program actually opens.
Q: Is there a version of Spacestation Pheta for Microsoft Windows?
A: Not at this time.
Q: A while ago I purchased a full, commercially-packaged version
of Spacestation Pheta from a retail store. How can I get a registration
for the latest shareware version?
A: Spacestation Pheta was sold by a commercial distributor at one
time for about 6 months. Unfortunately we don't know what happened to this
distributor, and T&T Software did not get paid for an unknown
quantity of copies they sold. However, we don't want any unhappy Spacestation
Pheta fans! So we will provide you with a free shareware registration if
you either mail us the original disk that came with your commercial copy,
or mail us a copy of the box cover.
