 This install applies to "SCR Musax 2" 1991 Scrapers.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and RawDIC 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 (+0.7 MB OtherMem for preload)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD (real files!)
 - All OS stuff patched (AddIntServer(), Text(), Move() etc.)
 - CPU dependent delay fixed
 - Bplcon0 color bit fixes (x10)
 - ButtonWait support for loader screen (see below)
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed (x4)
 - Byte write to volume register in replayer fixed (x2)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Quite a nice music disk with good tunes which definitely deserved
 a WHDLoad patch. The disk has been created with Bootleg 2.1 which
 split the main file into 5 different parts. So the first thing
 I did was to code a RawDIC imager to save these 5 parts to a single
 file. Then I noticed that several graphics.library functions were
 used to write the menu text so I first created a slave which required
 a Kickstart ROM. This was done quite quickly but somehow it annoyed
 me as I don't like demo patches that use OS routines. So I started to code
 a replacement for the Text() routine in graphics.library which was
 used to write the menu text. Coding the routine didn't take long
 but I spent about an hour trying to find out why no text was displayed
 at all, for testing I even saved the original bitmap and loaded it to
 the correct memory location, yet still no dice, WTF? I almost
 questioned my sanity when I tried one last thing: I replaced the
 KickEmul slave that I used for all my testing with a "normal"
 one which works without any Kickstart ROM. And lo'n'behold, the
 menu text appeared in all its glory! I actually have no idea
 why the text disappeared within a split second with the KickEmul
 slave but now that it works I don't really care either. I actually
 just used the KickEmul slave to save some time as I didn't have
 to patch all OS routines at once that way. So much for the theory
 anyway...

 Once that was finished another bug kept me busy for a while, the small
 "credits logo" would appear at random positions, turns out it only
 worked by coincidence in the original demo as the lower byte of register d1
 was always cleared. So I fixed that problem too and added ButtonWait support
 for the loader screen. If enabled the loader part will be displayed until
 you press right mouse button, this way you can listen to the whole
 loader tune if you like.

 Not much more to say, I guess it was enough babble anyway. :)
 Enjoy the music disk from HD.
