After the game has finished (or when prompted to save) select the export option from the menu. The program will then display the location that the file will be saved to on your computer (C: \ Documents and Settings \ My Documents \ Ucreate). The project file will be saved with an extension based on the game type (name.pz = puzzle file, name.mua = mash-up, name.bd = ball drop, name.pb = pinball). Next, attach this file to an e-mail and send it to your friend. Your friend can then import the file to their Ucreate game to play the file. See steps above for importing a file. Note: they will need a UCreate unit to view and play the files.

If there is a problem, the software will display and error message (ex: you pen colors are too similar, try another color).
