 This install applies to "Fractal Tunes"  1991 Midnightsun.

 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
 - Byte write to $dff043 fixed (x2)
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed (x4)
 - Blitter wait added
 - Decruncher (PowerPacker) relocated to fast memory
 - Low-pass filter toggling during loading/decrunching disabled
 - Intro can be skipped with CUSTOM1
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 A patch for this music disk was requested this morning and since I
 always liked it I quickly made it a few hours later.
 Code is quite clean, except for the usual bugs in the line drawer
 and the CPU dependent DMA waits in the replayers not much had to be
 fixed.

 The demo toggled the low-pass filter during loading and decrunching,
 I have disabled this behaviour in this patch!

 I have also relocated all PowerPacker decrunchers to fast memory.

 In the main part, a tune is decrunched as soon as the fractals appear
 again. You need a joystick to select the tunes btw.

 If you want to start the main part directly you can use the CUSTOM1
 tooltype to skip the intro part.

 Enjoy the demo from HD, the tunes are quite nice.
