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

This patch applies to Elysium, 1991 Sanity
It rank 3rd place at Amiga Convention Summit'91 by Static Bytes & Prologic


REQUIREMENTS:
- Slave requires WHDLOAD V14+.
- Demo requires 0.6 MB Chip Mem (+ 0.5 MB other memory for preload option)

FEATURES:
- Full load from Hard drive
- ROM Random Access generator data included
- LOTS of blitter routines patched
- Installer and Icons by Matrix!
- Quit option is 'Del'

EXTRA:

SPECIAL NOTICE:  WHEN YOU FIRST RUN THE DEMO IT WILL DECRUNCH, THEN IT WILL
SAVE THE DEMO OUT IN A NEW FORMAT AND THEN QUIT BACK TO AMIGADOS/WORKBENCH

DO  NOT  WORRY!   SIMPLY ACTIVATE THE DEMO AGAIN AND ALL WILL BE FINE, THIS
WILL ONLY HAPPEN THE FIRST TIME YOU EVER BOOT THE DEMO..

XFD DECRUNCH DOESN'T SUPPORT THE TYPE OF POWEPACKER DEPACKER IN THE FILE SO
I HAD TO DO IT EXTERNALLY.

This demo basically throws some of the most technical effects that the A5oo
was capable of.  Two things to note:

The  spinning text box routine will appear to screw up, but there is simply
NOTHING  I  can do about this.  For this effect to operate correctly on the
A5oo, there were no blitter waits for this routine at all (and it was a lot
of  blitter  code!).   So,  briefly  in two places the text box will either
pause  or  reset  itself because simply, I had to put Blitter waits in, and
the routine is not timed to allow this :(

Also, the water scroller might have brief flickers, again, this routine was
coded  with  no  blitter  waits,  but  this  time, putting blitter waits in
totally  destroyed the effect, and it slowed the scroller to such an extent
that it was unwatchable!

Everything  else  in  the  demo is fixed, and the problems that the demo is
left  with  are certainly not catastrophic and don't really affect the demo
too much at all.

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