 PERFORMANCE OF THE PACKAGE IS ASSUMED BY YOU AND IF THE PACKAGE SHOULD PROVE

 CAUSED IN ANY USUAL, SPECIAL, OR ACCIDENTAL WAY, ALSO IF THE OWNER OR A THIRD
 PARTY HAS BEEN POINTED AT SUCH POSSIBILITIES OF DAMAGE.

 This install applies to "4th & Inches"  1988 Accolade.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and DIC 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 game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+0.3 MB for preload)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 The game 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
 - Protection removed (Herndon HLS encryption, 2x disk checks)
 - Long read from $dff008 (DSKDATR) fixed
 - Wrong blits fixed
 - Blitter waits added (x23)
 - Manual included
 - Source code included as usual
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 This one was requested by EreWeGo yesterday on EAB and so I quickly
 made a patch for this game. It's one of these games that didn't run
 on anything else than 68000 thanks to the copy protection. Protection
 was Herndon HLS which means encrypted binary and disk checks. Wasn't
 hard to defeat but it was fun to code the decrypter.

 Update 17.11.2015:
 ------------------

 There were graphics problems in the game on fast machines, these should
 now be fixed as I have added quite a lot of blitter waits. I have also
 fixed some illegal blit operations which were caused by an uninitialised
 address register. Additionally I have fixed a long read from $dff008 and
 included the manual. The game should now work fine without any graphics
 problems on all machines.

 Enjoy the game from HD now.
