 This install applies to "Nightshade's Harmony"  1992 Ecstasy.

 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 and 0.5 MB OtherMem
 (+0.9 MB OtherMem for preload)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Memory check fixed
 - Interrupts fixed
 - Blitter wait added
 - ButtonWait support for title picture
 - Reset part can be enabled with CUSTOM1
 - Reset after reset part :) patched to quit back to DOS
 - All decrunchers (Fire, Ice!) relocated to fast memory
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed (x4)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Yet another nice music disk patched. Did most of the work about
 2 months ago already (why does time fly so fast?) but then forgot
 about it as usual. Today I just fixed a problem with the title
 picture which wasn't displayed as I had set a default copperlist
 and enabled copper DMA but the boot part doesn't use any
 copperlist at all, instead, the picture is handled completely
 in the vertical blank interrupt. Once that was finally done I
 added ButtonWait support for title picture, if enabled the picture
 will be shown until either mouse button has been pressed.
 I also added support for the reset part (which just displays a picture),
 this can be enabled with the CUSTOM1 tooltype. The reset part will be
 shown after the loading picture fades out (i.e. the main part is about
 to start) and will quit back to DOS after a while, in the original
 demo a software reset was performed.

 Tunes by Nightshade (who also composed the music for Double Dragon 3)
 are nice but the vocals in the "Unforgettable" tune are truly
 horrible and make my ears bleed! I really hope the lady who
 performed the vocals has realised by now that she should not sing,
 at all! :)

 There are some nice scrollers to read, I especially like how he
 slags off the Lotus 2 music, after reading his babble I for one
 am happy it was NOT Mr. Barnabas aka Nightshade who made the Lotus 2
 music as in my opinion Barry Leitch created an awesome tune for
 that game! I pretty much doubt Nighthade would have made an equally
 awesome tune but that's just my personal opinion of course.
 "Fast up-tempo rock tune" for Lotus 2? NAH!

 Anyway, enjoy the music disk from HD and listen to "Unforgettable"
 at your own risk, don't say I didn't warn you. :)
