Once the demo loads, an information box will be displayed and you will be able to click on 4 buttons below each demo to perform an appropriate action.

Choosing 'Next Step' will allow the demo to end or return to the demos.

For Version 13.1 (not the default) - The start up commands for AFRL RAPTOR require the addition of the version AND "-srg" to allow software rendering to force 24-bit X-11 graphics mode instead of the default OpenGL mode which requires hardware/software support.
