 This install applies to "Music Disk" 1989 Action Force.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and RawDIC to be in the path.
 These programs can be found in the WHDLoad package.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed demo requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem
 (+1.3 MB OtherMem for preload and Kickstart ROM).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 The demo requires an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image.
 The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
 must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from a A500 with
 tools like 'GrabKick' or similar which can be found on aminet.
 If the image is of wrong version or altered in any way WHDLoad will quit with
 an appropriate message.
 Additionally the file "kick34005.A500.RTB" must be installed in the same
 directory as the kickstart image. It can be found in the archive
 "util/boot/skick346.lha" on aminet.



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD (real files!)
 - Wrong blitter waits fixed (x8)
 - Wrong Bplcon0 value fixed (x3)
 - Wrong copperlist entries fixed (x4)
 - Bplcon0 color bit fix
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed
 - Byte write to volume register in replayer fixed (x2)
 - All decrunchers (Tetra Pack 2.2) relocated to fast memory
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Quite an old music disk here which I patched just for fun. Code
 isn't that bad but all blitter waits were wrong as the coder
 checked bit #6 in register $dff01c (INTENAR), quite funny to see
 how often the btst/bset instructions are not used correctly with
 memory locations. Other than that there were the usual replayer
 bugs and some wrong Bplcon0 values in the copperlist.

 As the coder decided to use quite a few graphics.library routines
 for drawing this patch requires an installed Kickstart 1.3 ROM as
 I didn't feel like emulating all these routines!

 If you want to save some space you can compress the files "10" and
 "11" in the data directory with any of the crunchers supported by
 WHDLoad (FImp, Propack etc.).

 Enjoy the demo from HD.
