 This install applies to "Ode to Ramon 2"  1989 Digital Force.

 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 (+0.9 MB for preload)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Interrupt fixed
 - Decrunchers relocated to fast memory
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed
 - Byte write to AudXVol in replayer fixed
 - Access fault fixed
 - Modulo/scanline effect bug on ECS/AGA machines fixed (see below)
 - Bplcon0 color bit fixes (x6)
 - Source code included as usual
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Here's the patch for the sequel to Ode To Ramon. Features almost
 the same code as its predecessor so fixing it wasn't very
 hard as I had done all the necessary work already.

 The scroller only worked correctly on OCS machines, on ECS/AGA machines
 it would be unreadable due to a modulo bug caused by a very low ddfstrt
 value. Also, on OCS machines the scroller is displayed with a scanline effect.
 To achieve the same effect on ECS/AGA machines I had to adapt the scroller
 code, I simply use the blitter to copy the original scroller screen to
 a different location in memory and use the modulo to achieve the scanline
 effect by copying every other line only.

 Other than that there was a rather stupid bug in the sprite routines which
 caused an access fault due to a wrong loop counter check. Result was a write
 access to a "random" memory location which of course wasn't exactly nice.


 You can download the demo here:
 ftp://ftp.amigascne.org/pub/amiga/Groups/D/Digital_Force/OdeToRamonII.dms 

 That about wraps it up, have a nice summer everyone and enjoy
 the demo from HD how.
