Short:    HD-Installer for Mesmerized - Pure Metal Coders
Author:   Galahad of Fairlight (gldflt@blueyonder.co.uk)
Version:  1.0
Type:     demo/patch

This patch applies to Mesmerized, 1990 Pure Metal Coders
Demo released at Theatre and Network Party 1990.


REQUIREMENTS:
- Slave requires WHDLOAD V16+.
- Demo requires 0.5 MB Chip Mem (+ 0.2 MB other memory for preload option)

- XFD package must be installed to decrunch the demo

FEATURES:
- Full load from Hard drive
- ROM Random Access generator data fixed
- Vertical Blank wait removed from Level 3
- Vertical Blank wait installed to ensure start of demo displays!
- Installer and Icons by Frank!
- Quit option is 'Del'

FEATURES v1.1
- Now compatible with WHDLoad 16+
- Chip memory requirements reduced
- Rogue disk access code neutralised
- Kickstart ROM file now loaded in Fast ram not Chip ram

Thanks to sjakie43 for the bug report

EXTRA:

I wasn't aware that external loading of files outside of the slave directory
had been stopped since WHDLoad 16, which resulted in the Kickstart file
no longer being loaded and the demo failing.

KickDOS functions have now been used to load the Kickstart file in a 
compatible way in WHDLoad, and now the demo works again.

Rogue disk access removed, wasn't spotted all those years ago, it caused no
harm, but its not needed.

Chip memory requirements have been reduced so that owners of machines with
only 512K of chip ram will now be able to display this demo, as everthing
else is now loaded to fast ram.

Another oldskool demo from my time on the Amiga first time around!

Not too much to fix here, other than the few rather odd coding errors
there really wasn't that much wrong with the demo.

This demo requires that you have a kickstart image as used for KickDOS

                   sys:devs/kickstarts/kick34005.a500
                   
This is because the demo uses the kickstart ROM to generate the graphics
for the Sierpinski Vectors, no Kickstart rom, no demo!

De-archive the file to RAM:, the installer will handle the rest.

Only this file at this HTTP site is supported!!
