Title : EF II Minimizer v0.98
Author : TiM
E-Mail : timothyoliver@bigpond.com

File Name : EF II Minimizer 0.98.exe
File Size : Approx. 60kb
Date Completed : Sunday, June 17, 2003, 1:14am
Time Taken to Create : Less than 2 hours (This is a basic conversion of EF Minimizer)

Description : With people enjoying the minimizer I made for EF, I've decided that it should be equally 
fair that I create a minimizer for EF II.  And here is a beta version of it.  The reason I have made this 
a beta version is because EF II isn't out yet, and I don't want to finalise anything until it is.

(Reason being that this program was created using the EF II demo as a reference and overall EF II when
released could be different and require more coding)

Basically, this version has been made for people to use with the demo to see if it is useful to them or not.

Enjoy!

***********************************************

Instructions For Use : 
Unlike most other utilities for EF II, you may put the EF II Minimizer 0.98.exe file ANYWHERE you want.  
Wherever it is will not affect it's performance at all.  But for the sake of tidiness, I'd put 
Mine in my "Star Trek Elite Force II Single Player Demo" directory.

Once extracted, double-click on the EF II Minimizer file.  A little 'about' window will pop up with
basic instructions, but just to clarify, I'll type them here too.

Click OK and the window will disappear.  At the bottom of the screen (Or along the side depending
where your taskbar is), in the Windows System Tray, you should see a small grey icon of the 
Starfleet Insignia.  This is to show that EF II Minimizer is open, and that EF II itself is not
running at the time.  Left-click on this icon (Or right-click on it, and choose "Settings...") and
another window will appear that has 4 text fields in it.  2 of those fields will make up the 
key combination you must press to hide EF II and the other 2 will make up the combo to restore it.

To configure them, simply click on each field and press the new key combination you want.

Once done, click "Okay!" and the key combos will be registered into hot keys.  Now you're all set!

Now simply run the EF II exe as you would normally, and from then on, press the key combos you set to
hide/show EF II.  Enjoy!

***********************************************

Main Features:
- Hides/Shows EF II on command.
- Allows customization of command keys.
- When EF is running, the icon in the system tray will change color to indicate EF II is open.
- Left-clicking on the icon when EF is off will open up the settings window.  If EF II is open, clicking on it
will restore EF II.
- Right-clicking on that icon will bring up a menu of available features.
- Resting your mouse over the icon in the System Tray will also give you EF II's status.

Unexpected Bonuses:

After testing this program out with the EF II Demo, I found these two extra useful things pop up:

- When EF II is fully screened and you minimize it, it's icon appears in the taskbar.  At first I tried
to hide it, but then thought it may allow a greater degree of access if I left it.

- When EF II is hidden, the sound still plays, which could be very useful to you if you suddenly
get caught in a heated battle with EF II minimized, you'll be able to hear it, and switch back.

***********************************************

Known Bugs:

I haven't seen any huge bugs, but that could easily change


(Note: If you do encounter a bug, or something that you think the Minimizer shouldn't be doing, then please e-mail me.)
