    1.2 Version History

     v1.0 - Initial Release
    1.3 Future Plans

    There are no plans for future upgrades at this time.

    1) Unzip the file CONNECT4.ZIP into any directory, usually your Link Software's directory (e.g. C:\WINLINK).
    2) Run your Link Software and send the file CONNECT4.83P to your TI-83.
    3) Run the program prgmCONNECT4 to begin.
    4) Visit SiCoDe's website at for news and program updates.
    The aim of Connect 4 is very simple. You and a computer AI take turns to place a token in one of the eight columns. If four of your tokens (white) "connect" either diagonally, vertically or horizontally - you've won. If four of the AI's tokens (black) "connect" then you've lost.
    The AI is quite good, so don't expect an easy win...
    2nd / Enter
    Drop Token
    4.0 ADVANCED
    The AI on Connect 4 isn't stupid, to say the least. Try not to make any mistakes however, and lure it into a situation where no-matter what it could do you will win, and you should be able to beat it most if not all of the time.
