Here only tell how to use the converted software. Speak of how to operate on console, please go to operation part.
1. Converted software
2. PC one piece
Download the file named ‘setup.exe’ from http://eng.supercard.sc or copy it from the CD attached with SuperCard MINISD. Set the directory which you want to install in, click ‘Next’ to complete the installation.
Run the converted software for the first time:
1. Run the software. Run the converted software, and set the out path of converted games on ‘Option’ menu first. Or else maybe you cannot find the converted games after converting them.
2. The operation menu is quite simple; the usage is easy as well. There are two menus: One is ‘Game List’, and the other is ‘Options’. On ‘Options’ menu, you can set the out path of converted games, software language. There is a function on this menu called ‘Game Default Set’. It is quite useful since you can save time by using this function. For example, if you want to convert 10 game files at the same time for the same requirement, usually you need to set every file once. But if you set your requirement on the ‘Game Default Set’, you needn’t to set them one by one.
3. Of course, you can change the setting anytime if you like.
