 This install applies to "Airborne Ranger"  1989 Microprose.

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

 The installed program requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+0.8 MB for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing Del (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (encryption, track check, manual check)
 - Access faults fixed
 - Load/save support (using real files, Airborne.rosterX, X=0-5)
 - Blitter waits added (x81, 68010+ only)
 - Interrupts fixed
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed
 - Byte write to volume register fixed
 - Decruncher (ByteBiller) relocated to fast memory and error check added
 - Lots of movep instruction patched/emulated
 - OS stuff patched (file loading)
 - ButtonWait support for title picture
 - CPU dependent delay loop fixed
 - Trainer options added (CUSTOM1, see below)
 - Keyboard routines rewritten
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works in 68000 machines (default key is 'Del')

 Another old patch redone. Problems with the old patch were reported on the
 Mantis tracks 2 days ago so I had a look and ended up redoing the complete
 patch.

 It now doesn't need any OSEmu or KickEmul anymore as I have patched all OS
 routines that were used for loading/saving files. Saving roster data is now
 also done using real files instead of a disk image!

 I have also patched quite a lot of movep instructions that were used in the
 text writer and the menus.
 These movep instructions were all used because of the Atari ST format used
 for the fonts.

 A lot of blitter waits had to be added too, these are only installed on
 68010+ machines.


 I have also added some trainer options as usual, please note that mine fields
 and time bombs can still kill you even with unlimited health option enabled!


 Protection was nothing really special even though the coder tried to make
 decrypting the code "interesting" by using the zeropage vectors but the
 decrypter was coded in a few minutes nevertheless.



 Enjoy this classic from HD, really nice game but the C64 version is better!
