 This install applies to "Vindex"  1989 Turtle Byte.

 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 (+0.9 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, protection track check)
 - Interrupts fixed
 - DMA waits in replayer and sample player fixed (x2)
 - Byte write to volume register fixed (x2)
 - Access fault fixed (bug in sample player)
 - Byte write to BLTCDAT fixed
 - Illegal copperlist entry fixed
 - Resident code disabled
 - Trainer options added (CUSTOM1/2)
 - Source code included
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 This install just sort of happened by coincidence as I got a request
 for training the disk version. So I checked the original, created the
 RawDIC imager to extract the data and then simply created the patch.
 Quite good code, not much had to be fixed. There was a bug in the sample
 player which caused a write to $dff0ac, this has been fixed of course.

 Protection was long track MFM disk format and a track check which the 
 coder tried to disguise a bit by using SMC but it was yet another
 wasted effort as it was so obvious what he was trying to do by just
 checking the disassembled code without even testing it.

 I have also added trainers as usual, to see the available in-game
 keys just press "HELP" during the game. High score saving will be
 disabled if any trainers are used.

 Enjoy the game from HD.
