_____ General Use ________________________
This object will give a random amount of Lindens to multiple random avatars at a timer interval set by the owner or staff member.
Can be set for Group Members Only to win or allow anyone.
Set a range, parcel, or entire sim that is allowed to receive random money.
A maximum amount of Lindens to give away each session can be set. Device will turn off when that limit is reached.
Optionally, avatars can pay money into the object. That money can be added to the session limit. The owner can set it so donated funds all go to session limit, a percentage goes to session limit, or all go to the owner instead. Payment is not required to win, and will not affect an avatar's chances of winning.
_____ Setup Instructions ___________________
1. Rez the object and edit the notecard inside named Configuration. (See next section.)
2. Select reset when prompted by the dialog menu.
3. Grant Pay Permission when prompted.
4. Touch object and select 'Turn On' from dialog menu. (You can change many settings from menu in addition to the notecard, see below for details.)
That's it! Have fun and read the next few sections to get the most out of this product.

_____ About the Touch Menu _______________
Most of these settings will revert to the settings in the Configuration notecard if the device is reset, (see above section for more information). Use touch menu to change settings on the fly, like during an event. Managers can change most of these settings as well. Managers are set in Configuration notecard.
• Turn On/Off - This will turn the device on or off. It will start off when reset/rezzed.
• Min Avatars - How many eligible avatars must be present to start splode?
• Payout Limit - Device will turn itself off when this amount is reached.
• Timer - Time in minutes between splodes.
• Range - Maximum distance a person can be away from the object to be eligible.
• Prize Money - Enter the minimum and maximum amounts to be paid, total, each splode. A random amount between the two numbers will be chosen at splode time. The system will randomly award eligible avatars smaller portions of that amount until there is none left.
• Group On/Off - Toggles if a person has to have same group active that the object is set to in order to be eligible. The device will tell them the group URL when they touch it if group mode on.

• Reset (Owner Only) - Reloads the Configuration notecard & resets all settings.
_____ Customizing _________________________
Warning: Do not link or unlink the object or it may break certain functions.
You can change colors or textures by opening the object in EDIT/BUILD menu and going to the Texture tab. It is suggested you have EDIT LINKED PARTS checked when doing so to be sure you are changing the correct prims.
CHANGING THE MONEY PARTICLE TEXTURE
The Money Image used in splode effect can be changed through the touch menu. Select 'Money Image' from menu. There you can choose from 7 default money images or use your own texture by entering a UUID key.
REPLACING THE DEFAULT SOUND EFFECTS
Open object in BUILD/EDIT and check EDIT LINKED PARTS. Select the CHILD prim and you will see the sound files in inventory. Replace them with your own sounds, using the exact same names. There are 3 sounds in total. You can replace any or all if you wish. (Note: Removing the sounds without replacing them will cause script errors. Turn sounds off in Configuration instead.)
_____ Helpful Tips & FAQ's ____________________
If the scripts are not working:
• Check to be sure you have permission to Run Scripts on the land parcel. Be sure the object is set to the right group if only Group is allowed to Run Scripts for your land.
• Reset the scripts from BUILD/TOOLS menu.
Q: Can I resize the object?
A: Yes. You may resize the object as needed.
Q: Can I unlink or remove prims from the object?
A: No. Every prim is needed and unlinking may break it.
Q: Is there a limit to how many avatars can be scanned by this item?
A: The limit is 100, same as the limit of how many avatars allowed in a sim.

A: When disabled, the Pay button may still appear in right-click menu but avatars will not be allowed to pay; no payment buttons will be visible.
Q: Is this device legal in Second Life?

Q: I've added names to Access List but they don't get menu?
A: See this: http://www.aliciastella.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=70
