SO YOU DECIDED TO ENLIST IN THE
ARCADE ARMY,EH? WELL, AROUND HERE
THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY TO DO THINGS--
THE ARMY WAY! SO STAND UP STRAIGHT,
WIPE THAT SILLY SMILE OFF YOUR FACE
AND LISTEN UP,SOLDIER!


TO BEGIN
--------

PUT THE DISK IN THE DRIVE AND TURN
THE COMPUTER ON. WATCH THE EDUCATIONAL
TRAINING FILM THAT APPEARS ON THE
SCREEN. AFTER YOU HAVE MEMORIZED IT,
YOU CAN BYPASS IT BY PRESSING THE
KEY.


SIGNING UP
----------

ENTER YOUR SERIAL NUMBER. (THIS IS
A NUMBER BETWEEN 1 AND 5, INCLUSIVE).
THE COMPUTER WILL ASK YOU YOUR NAME.
TYPE IT IN. FROM NOW ON, EVERY TIME
YOU BOOT THE DISK IT WILL DISPLAY YOUR
NAME,RANK, AND SERIAL NUMBER. NEVER
TELL A FOREIGN (OR DOMESTIC) SPY ANY
MORE THAN THAT, IT MIGHT LEAD TO YOUR
DEMISE. IT'S ALSO AGAINST REGULATIONS
AND IN THIS ARMY,WE DO THINGS THE ARMY
WAY!

TO PROCEED TO THE TRAINING AREA,
PRESS THE KEY. ONCE THERE, YOU
WILL BE GREETED BY THE DRILL
INSTRUCTOR. THE DI'S PRIMARY
OCCUPATION IS THE MOTIVATION OF
RECRUITS. HE WILL MOTIVATE YOU TO PICK
ONE OF FIVE TRAINING AREAS. SHOULD HIS
METHODS FAIL TO PERSUADE YOU TO MAKE A
DECISION, YOU'LL BE BOOTED OUT OF THE
ARCADE ARMY AND YOU'LL HAVE TO
REENLIST IF YOU EVER WANT TO AMOUNT TO
ANYTHING.

WATCH OUT FOR LAND MINES. THEY
COULD TURN UP AT ANYTIME,JUST TO KEEP
YOU RECRUITS ON YOUR TOES. BUT THERE'S
NOT ENOUGH POWDER IN THEM TO WASTE
YOU, ONLY TO TEACH YOU TO WATCH WHERE
YOU'RE GOING. GET SMART AND MAYBE
WE'LL REMOVE THE MINES LATER.


ORDNANCE REGULATIONS
--------------------

THE MILITARY HARDWARE USED IN YOUR
TRAINING HAS SOME BUILT-IN FEATURES
WORTH TAKING ADVANTAGE OF.
THE "P" KEY WILL PAUSE THE SIMULATION.
WILL TOGGLE THE SOUND EFFECTS
OR HOLDING DOWN BOTH JOYSTICK
BUTTONS AT THE SAME TIME WILL ALLOW
YOU TO BYPASS THE MUSIC THAT FOLLOWS
FAILURE DURING ANY TASK. PLEASE NOTE
THAT OFTEN THE REASON FOR YOUR FAILURE
WILL BE POINTED OUT ON THE SCREEN WITH
A SMALL ARROW. STUDY IT CAREFULLY.


RANK
----

THE PURPOSE OF YOUR TRAINING IS TO
WORK YOUR WAY UP TO THE RANK OF
SERGEANT MAJOR. RIGHT NOW YOU'RE A
LOWLY CIVILIAN AND UNLESS YOU SHAPE UP
YOU'RE GOING TO STAY ONE! SHOULD YOU
SHOW SOME APTITUDE, YOU MAY EARN YOUR
STRIPES AS FOLLOWS:
