Short:    HD-Installer for Formula One Grand Prix V1.0
Author:   Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com), ICQ: 26051687
Uploader: Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com)
Version:  1.0
Type:     game/patch

This patch applies to "Formula One Grand Prix" (c) 1991 Microprose.
Supported: - 4 disk original release/PowerPlus budget release (Mad-Matt)
           - 3 disk release (A600 Wild, Weird & Wicked pack) (Mad-Matt)

- Slave requires WHDLoad V15+ and an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image
- Game requires 512k chip mem and 1Mb other memory (+3.2Mb other memory 
  for preload option)

- Full load from HD
- Manual protection removed (type anything at the prompt)
- Fully compatible with F1GP-Ed modifications to the game file!
- Intro can be skipped by pressing fire/left mouse while loading or by
  setting the CUSTOM1=1 tooltype
- Full 1991 season drivers and teams replace the built-in names unless you
  have modified your version of the game with F1GP-Ed
- All save operations default to a "saves" subdirectory so as not to
  clutter up the main game directory
- Filter button enabled by default when loading/saving (prevents the list
  of files showing invalid files)
- Audio filter disabled for clearer sound
- Mouse pointer sped up to maximum speed
- Normal, RomIcon, NewIcons and OS3.5+ Colour Icons (created by Frank,
  Mad-Matt and myself) and 2 Exoticons from http://exotica.fix.no/
- Quit option (default key is 'F10')

I recommend anyone that enjoys this game to download the superb F1GP-Ed
from Aminet (game/misc/F1GP-Ed.lha) or from Oliver's Amiga F1 website at

Using F1GP-Ed you can modify an enormous number of parameters associated
with the game and this WHDLoad patch will still work correctly! If you
wish to modify the game regularly, I recommend you to add an assign to
your s:user-startup file like so:

  assign f1gp_disk_#2: games:FormulaOneGrandPrix/data

Replace the path with wherever you installed the game. If you do this,
when you launch F1GP-Ed it will find the game file straight away.

The install script will automatically create a "saves" directory which is
the default directory for any information which is loaded or saved.  If you
really want to save information in the main directory, press the "DH0:"
button to access it.

The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts"
and must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from an
A500 with tools like "GrabKick" or similar which can be found on Aminet.
If the image is the wrong version or altered in any way, WHDLoad will
quit with an appropriate error 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/skick343.lha" on Aminet.

Greetings to Mad-Matt for the original quick install, supplying both
originals, testing and the great front and back box scan icon, Frank for
his awesome icons, Wepl for WHDLoad, all Action members, my testing crew
and the WHDLoad team!
