Clicking on 'Download IGMS package' below will download a ZIP file containing all of the below files. This can be downloaded to a temporary directory and the various component files can be unzipped to an appropriate location afterward. If you don't have an unzip utility or want only certain files, the files are also available for individual download, but keep in mind that the graphics support file EGAVGA.BGI must be placed in the same directory as the executable or else the program will not function properly. Also, if you download files individually, your browser may try to open them rather than save them to disk. To avoid this, right click on the download link and select "Save Link As..." to download the file.
Once you have downloaded and unzipped the files, IGMSv3.2 can be run simply by double-clicking on the IGMS.EXE icon in the appropriate directory. See the manual (below) for further information.

*The IGMS v3.2 was designed in Borland C/C++ 3.1 and due to graphics features probably cannot
be recompiled without the software included in that package. It was also designed by a 17-year-old
who had never written a C program before, so if you're an experienced programmer, brace yourself
before actually viewing the source...
