Hi all. I'm doing a project for English, and it involves creating a game (what that has to do with English I don't know either :p). I'm planning on making it look like a real game (with PS2 box, manual, and the presentation on a CD), and would like it so when the teacher puts the CD in it goes to a full screen presentation. But how can I do that? Should I put the file on the CD, as well as Microsoft's Powerpoint Viewer or something? Thanks :)

You need to create an autorun.inf file that calls the powerpoint viewer, with the presentation in the command line.

Autorun.inf information: Here (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;818804#4)
Powerpoint Viewer Command Line options: Here ( http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;830040)
