 This install applies to "MegaBall"  1995 Ed Mackey.

 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
 (+2.3 MB OtherMem for preload and Kickstart ROM)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 The OCS version requires an installed  A500 Kickstart 1.3 image,
 the AGA version requires an installed A1200 Kickstart 3.1 image.



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM1-2, see below)
 - OCS and AGA version supported
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Another requested patch which I made in a few hours this evening.
 Excellent breakout clone which I still enjoy these days.
 Supported is the last released version (Megaball 4) of the game.

 Since the code is quite good creating the patch wasn't much work,
 creating the install script and testing took quite some time though.
 
 The OCS version comes without diskfont.library which means the
 game will use a standard font. If you have a Workbench 1.3 disk
 available you can copy the library to the "libs" directory of the
 installed game to enable the custom font.

 For the AGA version the diskfont.library will be copied from your
 LIBS: directory so the game will always use the custom font if you
 have a properly installed Worbench partition.
 For installation you will need the original Workbench3.1 disk as
 the game needs and uses datatypes.library and some extra files.
 I have deliberately NOT copied these files from your SYS: partition
 to avoid problems as there are a lot of different picture.datatypes
 and the game only works reliably with the one from the original
 Workbench disk.


 I have also added some trainer options, available options are:

 CUSTOM1=1: enables unlimited lives
 CUSTOM2=1: enables in-game keys, these are
            N: skips level
            E: get some extras (laser, zap gold, brick-through, catch)
            A: add extra life

 If any of the trainer options is used the high score saving will be
 disabled. There might be another unpleasant surprise for cheaters
 as well. :)

 Enjoy this great game from HD.
