 This install applies to "Star Wars"  1988 Domark.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 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
 (+0.8 MB OtherMem for preload and Kickstart ROM).
 It can be quit by pressing Del (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
 - 3 versions supported
 - Protection removed (disk checks)
 - CPU dependent delay fixed
 - DMA wait in sample player fixed (x4)
 - High-score saving fixed/added (disabled if trainer is used)
 - Unlimited Shields trainer (CUSTOM1)
 - Timing fixed (can be disabled with CUSTOM2)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 Yet another old patch which needed to be updated as there were a few
 problems. One of the X-Wing guns wasn't displayed and the timing wasn't
 fixed either which made the game unplayable on fast machines.

 I have made a completely new patch from scratch which fixes all these
 problems and also adds support for the protected SPS 2926 version.

 I have added an unlimited shields trainer which can be enabled with
 CUSTOM1, the option can then be toggled on and off with the "S" key.
 High-score saving will be disabled if the trainer is used!

 The timing fix can be disabled with CUSTOM2.

 The game displays a short instruction text at the beginning, I have
 decided to leave it in and fixed the CPU dependent delay which was used
 to show the text for a certain amount of time. It is now displayed
 for 3 seconds or until any mouse button is pressed.

 Default quitkey is Del as in one version it is possible to show the
 version number using F10.

 Enjoy the game from HD, good shooter with pretty neat code considered
 its age (a mixture of C and assembly).
