Abstract:

Comparisons have been made between many different methods of command input for wargame simulations. Much has been said and written about the relative merits of using a visual interface, menu and mouse input method for command input to various wargaming simulations. This document, which is the actual command interface program as implemented on an ATARI ST desktop computer, is Proof of the Concept that a visual interface as applied to the Research Evaluation Systems Analysis RESA simulation, is possible, given the complex command structure of RESA. Keywords Visual interface, RESA, ATARI, Computer graphics, Wargame simulation, Computerized simulation, Input output devices. KT
