 This install applies to "Back 2 Base"  1989 Crusaders.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 It 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 (+0.8 MB OtherMem for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - OS stuff patched (file loading)
 - Sprite problems fixed
 - Interrupt fixed
 - Self-modifying code fixed
 - Decruncher (ByteKiller) relocated to fast memory and error check added
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed
 - Byte write to volume register in replayer fixed (x2)
 - Bplcon0 color bit fixes (x2)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Another old Crusaders music disk which was quickly patched. Much
 more interesting than patching the demo was the ReSource bug I
 had to deal with. The demo binary, when decrunched, has an
 odd (i.e. not even) file size which ReSource doesn't handle that well,
 displaying the disassembled code was impossible. It was easy
 to work-around that bug but it still kinda amused me.
 Other than that there was some sprite trash on screen from time
 to time as the coder only initalised the first sprite pointer, this
 was fixed by some "use both copperlists" magic, i.e. first copperlist
 initialises the sprite pointers and then starts the second copperlist.

 If you want to save some space you can compress all files in the
 "modules" directory with any of the crunchers supported by WHDLOad
 (FImp, Propack etc.).

 Not much more to say here, enjoy yet another classic music disk
 from HD.
