 This install applies to "Astrogate"  1990 Byterapers.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed demo requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+0.3 MB OtherMem for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - OS stuff patched (VBeamPos)
 - Self-modifying code fixed
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed
 - Byte write to volume register fixed
 - DMA settings fixed
 - Bplcon0 color bit fix
 - Interrupt fixed
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 Quite a nice demo for early 1990, good graphics and nice music.

 Code is quite OK as well, there was some SMC in the scroller and
 vector routine which I have fixed. The demo also has buggy/missing
 double buffering which I noticed when I "emulated" the VBeamPos()
 routine, I have added a workaround for this problem which works fine
 on my machines, should you experience some gaps in the vector part
 please contact me, I'll update the patch then and add real double
 buffering.

 If you want to save some HD space you can pack the "Astrogate" file
 with any cruncher supported by WHDLoad (FImp, Propack etc.).

 The music is quite nice!

 Enjoy the demo from HD.
