How do I add more events?


  1. Quit �Computerised Carnival�
  2. Enter the directory that �Computerised Carnival� is installed in.
  3. Enter �pristine data�.
  4. Backup the carnival directory that you want to add events to (either athletics or swimming)
  5. Enter the directory that you wish to add events to.
  6. Hold down Shift, and Right-Click on �events.dat�. (Sometimes, only �events� will show.) Choose �Open with other program�.
  7. Scroll down the list, choose Notepad and click open.
  8. In Notepad, you will see something like this:









High Jump1

Long Jump1



Triple Jump1



�12� means the number of events below. An event that ends in �1�, like �Shotput1� is a distance event. Everything else is a timed event. Add the events to it in the order that you wish, remembering to add a �1� to distance events. Then, update the number at the top, changing it to the number of events below.

  1. Save and exit.

10. Open �Computerised Carnival� again, and set up a new carnival of the type that you edited. The events will be added to the list.
