Siren - It's the Cops!

SIREN.ACC is an accessory which periodically sends a little police car driving across the bottom of your screen, complete with siren and engine sounds. The identity of the original author is unknown.

The original version of SIREN.ACC had several problems. It ran only in high resolution, would not register itself in the GEM drop-down menu, and activated itself so frequently that its only use could be to install it, watch it a little while, say "wow", and then remove it.

I decided to take this accessory under my wing and make it behave. It now registers itself in the menu like a normal accessory. This allows you to click on it to manually summon the fuzz. The automatic patrolling of your screen has been set to once an hour, but I've provided a separate program called SETSIREN.PRG which allows you to set this time to any number of minutes and seconds. This is especially useful in high-crime areas where more police protection is desired.
