 This install applies to "Metal Melissa the Pisser"  1991 Animators.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and DIC 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 demo requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+880k for Preload) 
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - picture load/save in part 4 redirected to HD (file "mm.pic")
 - Reset in part 4 patched to quit demo
 - Interrupts fixed (x4)
 - Correct DMA channels set (x4)
 - DMA wait in replayer in part 2 fixed (the usual dbf delay bug)
 - Byte write to AudXVol in replayer in part 2 fixed
 - "$ACDC" self modifying code in part2 fixed (automatically skipped on 68000
   CPU's, can be disabled with CUSTOM1=1 tooltype on 680x0) 
 - Bplcon 0 color bit fixes (x7)
 - NewIcon (created by me, if you have better icons feel free to send them)
 - Quit option (default key is 'F10')


 Here's the WHDLoad patch for this classic demo by Animators. As usual in Animators
 demos there's hardly any code here (except for part 2) yet the demo is entertaining
 anyway because of all the nice graphics and ideas (the "Animators Paint" part is
 truly unique). I've fixed the SMC in part 2 (move.w #$ACDC,$62(a6) ect. :D) in the
 fastest way possible (no additional memory writes) but it might still slow down
 the demo on 68000 which is why this patch is skipped on 68000 machines. If you want
 you can disable it on higher CPU's too by using the CUSTOM1=1 tooltype.
 On my A4060 it still works fine then.

 There's also a very strange bug in this part which I couldn't fix yet as I don't
 know why it happens. It only happens sometimes (and only on my 4060, so far it NEVER
 happened on UAE) which doesn't make it any easier. I suppose it's a timing related
 interrupt bug but I'm not sure. I spent 2 days to fix this problem but now I'm
 out of ideas.
 If the demo crashes with an 'illegal exception' (or something similar) when the
 morphing box is on screen, try again with the "NOCACHE" tooltype.
 I'll hopefully fix this problem in a later version of this patch. 

 Enjoy this demo from HD now. I know I do. :)
