 This install applies to "Master Axe"  1994 Epic.
 
 This installer was originally done by me (as JST) on request from Epic Marketing.

 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path. It can be found in the
 WHDLoad package.

 It can be quit by pressing right amiga key
 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=" but with that game it's not
  easy to find something that's not used).

 The installed program requires 2.0 MB ChipMem and 2.0 MB OtherMem. It doesn't use
 the AGA chipset features, despite being sold as AGA. But the numerous animations
 probably call for 1.5 MB chipmem. So any amiga with 2MB chip can run it.
 
 If you have problems with this installation please try and get a newer
 version of this package from the WHDLoad WWW-Page. If that doesn't help try
 some Tooltypes like NOCACHE, NOAUTOVEC, NOVBRMOVE, NOMMU, PAL or NTSC. If
 that also fails, please inform the author via the Bug-Report-Form which
 can be accessed on the WHDLoad WWW-Page or create a mantis issue directly
 at http://mantis.whdload.de

  - JST version

 notes:
 
 - it's funny that this game actually RUNS on a 68000 provided there's
   2MB chipmem available. I always thought that this game was AGA but it
   is actually ECS/OCS, it just uses 2MB chipmem and a couple of odd-address
   long/word reads that are incompatible with the 68000 CPU.
   I guess they could have sold some copies to A600/2MB chip owners
   but they didn't even try.
 
 - the game features superb animated parallax floors (like SNES SF2), but
   surprisingly they didn't think of putting them on the first level... only
   on ALL other levels. I had to cheat to see them, since the game is frustratingly
   difficult.
