before

i need to arrange the above Forest tree in a configuration similar to this sketch diagram.

how am i able to arrange the nodes such that the '0' edge points directly south and the '1' edge is at a right angle to it and points directly east?

i need this is to be the same for all of the nodes which have all '0' prefixes (i.e. 0,00,000,0000)

any help would be great, i'm completely stumped.

additionally i need to add in the dividing horizontal lines and the annotations on the right hand side, i guess with tikz.

Thanks Sebastiano.

Using the istgame package:

\documentclass[border=1mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{istgame}

\begin{document}

\begin{istgame}[every node/.style={fill=white,circle,inner sep=0pt,minimum size=5pt}]
\draw (-1,-1.45) --(7.5,-1.45);
\draw (-1,-3.95) --(7.5,-3.95);
\draw (-1,-6.2) --(7.5,-6.2);
%
\setistSolidNodeStyle{10pt}
\setistgrowdirection'{east}
\setistOvalNodeStyle{.8cm}

I propose another way to draw your first picture using istgame package that for some points of view is similar to forest package. Here there is a starting point and I think that very slowly you can draw your first image.

enter image description here

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{istgame}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\begin{document}
\begin{istgame}\setistSolidNodeStyle[blue]{10pt}
\setistgrowdirection'{east}
\setistOvalNodeStyle{.5cm}
\xtShowEndPoints[oval node]
\istrooto(0){}+{10mm}..{5cm}+
\istb[draw=blue]{\textcolor{blue}{1}}[al]
\istb[draw=blue]{\textcolor{blue}{0}}[bl]
\endist
\xtdistance{20mm}{20mm}
\istrooto(1)(0-1){}
\istb[draw=blue]{\textcolor{blue}{1}}[al]{}[center]
\istb[draw=blue]{\textcolor{blue}{0}}[bl]{}[center] 
\endist
\xtdistance{20mm}{20mm}
\istrooto(2)(0-2){}
\istb[draw=blue]{\textcolor{blue}{1}}[al]{}[center]
\istb[draw=blue]{\textcolor{blue}{0}}[bl]{}[center] 
\xtdistance{20mm}{20mm}
\istrooto(3)(1-1){}
\istb[draw=blue]{\textcolor{blue}{1}}[al]{}[center]
\istb[draw=blue]{\textcolor{blue}{0}}[bl]{}[center] 
\endist
\end{istgame}
\end{document}

In this image you can see that the circle can be colored with a specific code.

Here's a forest solution. It is neither general nor optimal, but it works. See the comments in the code.

  % conceptually clean.  (The other option would be to use "delay", but
  % prepending is intertwined with delay cycles, so if we just used "delay", we
  % would need to compute how much delay is needed.)

    I like very much your package...but for my experiences it is laborious :-(

    @Sebastiano Thank you for your kind interest in the istgame package. The main purpose of writing this package was to draw all the game trees in Osbornes book: Introduction to Game Theory. From my point of view, game trees in this book are of standard expression of game trees. In that sense, I believe that istgame is not that difficult (actually simple) to use in drawing game trees, at least those of Osborne's book.

    @Sebastiano I just added other functions (that I do not use) to draw special shapes of game trees, which may cause some efforts to draw them. Still I guess it is always laborious to draw those special kinds of game trees whichever package is used. One more thing: since one can use the istgame environment just like using the tikzpicture environment, any knowledge of tikz is useful to use istgame.

    I thank you so much for your long comments. I will now download the new manual that I will read. I always give you my best compliments. And I hope one day to learn a little bit about this package; I TikZ I abandoned it a bit. I like symbols and fonts since I was a child :-)
