 This install applies to "Armour Geddon 2"  1994 Psygnosis.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 It 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 and 0.5 MB OtherMem (+2.7 MB
 OtherMem for preload and Kickstart ROM).

 It can be quit by pressing PrtSc (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 (manual check)
 - Illegal copperlist entries fixed
 - Blitter waits added (x7)
 - Intro can be skipped with CUSTOM1 
 - Interrupt fixed
 - Manual included
 - NewIcon (created by Frank)
 - Source code included
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'PrtSc')

 Here's the updated patch for Armour Geddon 2. Saw a report on the Mantis
 bug tracker, checked the old patch and noticed it used disk images instead
 of files and also required 1 MB chip memory so decided to redo it. 

 The patch now uses files instead of disk images which means you have to
 reinstall the game. I have also completely disabled the manual protection
 and added 68000 quitkey support. The default quitkey is PrtSc as all
 other keys seem to be used in the game.

 Game code is quite fine, a few problems had to be fixed though. I
 also had to add a few blitter waits, these are not time-criticial so they
 are applied on 68000 machines too.

 Enjoy the game from HD.
