This install applies to "Cougar Force" © 1991 Tomahawk.
This install requires WHDLoad 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 (+1.4 MB for preload)
It can be quit by pressing F10 (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.

This patch was requested by Irek a few days ago on EAB, he also
provided the disk images and the nice icons. While patching this
game wasn't hard it still was pretty time consuming and rather annoying
as I actually had to play all the levels which wasn't fun at all...
The code is rather bad and a lot of access faults had to be fixed, in the
3d parts there also were problems when exiting the game which had to be
fixed as well. Worst problem was the missing timing though, on a plain
68000 A500 the code is so slow that the coder didn't add any sync with the
raster beam. On fast machines this made the game completely unplayable as
it runs way too fast. To fix this I have added the CUSTOM2 option, you can
choose how many frames should be waited, i.e. this option defines how
often WaitTOF is called in the mainloop.
The "protection" was one of the worst I ever encountered, whoever thought
it would be a good idea to have all protection code in a separate executable
which just needs to be removed for the game to be "cracked" either has a
bright sense of humour or no clue how to implement a protection check.
Not much more to say here, "enjoy" the game from HD.
