 This install applies to "Side Arms"  1989 Probe.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and RawDIC 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.
 (+0.6 MB for preload)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD (real files!)
 - Protection removed (MFM)
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM1, see below)
 - High score load/save (only if no trainers are used)
 - CPU dependent delay loops fixed
 - Timing problems fixed
 - Interrupt fixed for 68040/60
 - Support for second fire button added (can be used to change weapons)
 - All files can be packed with Fimp, ProPack etc.
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 This patch was more or less finished since December 2011 already,
 reason I didn't release it till now was the simple fact that the
 imager was very slow due to the disk format. I also had a much faster
 imager but it had trouble to create certain tracks correctly, there
 always were some "random" errors on on some of the tracks.
 Then I more or less forgot about the patch until it was mentioned
 on EAB some days ago. This morning I finally managed to make the
 imager work 100% reliable and also changed it to save real files.
 I then updated the patch to use WHDLoad v17+ features, added some
 more trainers and also added support for the second fire button.
 The second fire button can be used to change weapons, space will
 of course still work too.

 The trainers can be selected with the CUSTOM1 tooltype, available
 options are:

 CUSTOM1= 1: enables unlimited lives
 CUSTOM1= 2: enables invulnerability
 CUSTOM1= 4: starts the game with all weapons (full powered)
 CUSTOM1= 8: you will not lose your extra weapons if you die
 CUSTOM1=16: enables in-game keys, following keys can then be used:
             S - full speed
             L - add 1 life
             B - get beta suit
             K - kill all enemies
             W - get all weapons, full powered

 To enable more than 1 option just add the numbers together, for example
 CUSTOM1=17 (1+16) will enable unlimited lives and the in-game keys.
 You can easily select your desired options in WHDLoad's splash window too
 of course.
 High score saving will be disabled if any trainer options are
 enabled! 


 That about wraps it up, enjoy the game from HD.
