By this time, you want to know how to play this mah-jong game, or
see the sexy graphics. First the graphics, two different ways.
Here's a DOS-based way to move files around to see the graphics
one picture at a time:
1. at the DOS prompt, COPY EPISODE.CGX EPISODE.BAK
2. then COPY A0.CGX EPISODE.CGX /Y
3. then START
4. presto! the picture of the school has become one of the girls!
but if you wait too long, the scrolling text messes it up. Press
the Pause key to prevent that, and then another key when you're
5. when you get to the main menu, exit the game.
6. repeat steps 2 through 5 for A1, A2, A3, B0, B1, B2, B3, C0,
C1, C2, C3, D0, D1, D2, D3, E0, E1, E2, E3, F0, F1, F2, F3, G0,
G1, G2, G3, and THANKS.CGX. having DOSKEY or some other
command-line editor helps a lot. MJG.CGX may work too.
A second way of seeing the graphics without playing mah-jong is
to modify the values in the MJG.DTA file to enable the photoshop.
Use a binary file editor of some sort, and modify the values in
bytes $204F to $206A from $00 to $01 (actually any non-zero value
should work, since some bozo distributed a hacked file with $20
in there). This will turn on all 28 pictures (which are in A0
through G3.CGX) in the photoshop option. The only thing you'll
miss this way is the THANKS.CGX picture, which I guess gets shown
if you win normally.
You can use the DOS method above to see that.
