 This install applies to "Vector Dance 2"  1991 Cult.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and DIC 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 (+0.9 MB OtherMem for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Access fault fixed (buggy "clear memory" routine)
 - Blitter waits added (x503, 68010+ only)
 - Wrong copper wait fixed
 - Decruncher (modified ByteKiller) relocated to fast memory and optimised
 - Interrupts fixed
 - Bplcon0 color bit fixes (x6)
 - Reset at end of demo patched to quit back to DOS
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Patched this demo just for fun, it features quite good code but has the same
 problem a lot of the Cult demos have: it's rather boring. For some reason I
 always kept my copy of this demo though, even though it is somehwat boring it
 is still not bad!

 Patching it wasn't much work, I had to add a lot of blitter waits as there were
 none used in the innerloops of the plasma part and the sine scroller parts.
 The blitter wait patches are only installed on 68010+ machines. There also
 was an access fault, this was caused by a broken and buggy clear memory routine.
 Other than that there wasn't much to fix which is worth mentioning for a demo
 released in 1991.

 Enjoy it from HD.
