 This install applies to "Megademo 2"  1990 Darkness.

 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
 - 2 versions supported
 - OS stuff patched
 - Self-modifying code fixed
 - Interrupts fixed
 - CPU dependent delay fixed
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed (x16)
 - Byte write to volume register fixed (x8)
 - Blitter waits added (x8)
 - Illegal blit fixed
 - Reset patched to quit back to DOS
 - Blitter waits added (x9)
 - Bplcon0 color bit fix
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is F10)

 Much better code than in the first Darkness megademo here! Patching
 still took quite a bit of time but there were no real annoying problems
 to fix. I have added blitter waits, they are only time-critical in the
 sine scroll part and hence I have added an option to disable them.
 If you experience problems in the first part on fast machines try
 the "NOCACHE" tooltype.


 Enjoy the demo from HD.
