The Barrier Frames:
Finality Crystal Shunt Curl Chant Quickening Giveaway Stare

This web page marks the first Internet release of The Barrier Frames, in a cross-platform version that should run on a wide variety of systems, including Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. The Barrier Frames was originally published by Eastgate Systems, but the rights have been returned to the author. The version available here is nearly identical in function to the original. It is available in two packagings: “all-in-one” and “image file”. Most readers will probably want to download the all-in-one version. This is a single zip file, which will run on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. The image file is a Squeak image which will run on any system that already has a Squeak virtual machine installed (compatible with Squeak 4.3 or later). Squeak is open source software licensed under the Apache and MIT licenses.

The Barrier Frames does not currently “play” in the browser. However, installation is quite simple, and does not have any side-effects, such as registry settings on Windows.

Installation Instructions:

1. Download the file Barrier_frames.zip (26M).

2. Unzip to a directory of your choice.

3. What you do from here depends on your Operating System:

Windows:
You should have a folder called Barrier_frames.app in the directory into which you unzipped Barrier_frames.zip. Double-click the icon for this folder. You should now have an icon for

squeak.exe

Double-click this icon. The Barrier Frames should launch.

Macintosh: (OS X)
You should have an icon called Barrier_frames in the folder where you unzipped Barrier_frames.zip. Double-click this icon. The Barrier Frames should launch.


Linux:
Change to the directory into which you unzipped Barrier_frames.zip. You should have a directory there called Barrier_frames.app. Change to this directory. Execute

squeak.sh

(preferably in the background). The Barrier Frames should launch.
