 This install applies to "Beneath A Steel Sky" © 1993-1994 Virtual Theatre/Virgin.

 This install is designed for the floppy versions (15 disks) & CD³² version.
  
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path. It can be found in the
 WHDLoad package.

 It can be quit by pressing num '*' (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 Floppy version:

 The installed program requires 1.0 MB ChipMem and 1.0 MB OtherMem (12 MB with PRELOAD)

 The game requires an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image.
 The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
 must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from a A500 with
 tools like 'GrabKick' or similar which can be found on aminet.
 If the image is of wrong version or altered in any way WHDLoad will quit with
 an appropriate requester.
 Additionally the file "kick34005.A500.RTB" must be installed in the same
 directory as the kickstart image. It can be found in the archive 
 "util/boot/skick345.lha" on aminet.

 CD³² version:

 The installed program requires 2.0 MB ChipMem and 1.0 MB OtherMem (15MB with PRELOAD,
 100 MB (!) with PRELOAD & speech on)

 The game requires an installed A1200 or A4000 Kickstart 3.1 image.
 The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
 must be named "kick40068.A1200" (resp kick40068.A4000). 
 The image can be extracted from a A1200 (resp A4000) with tools like 'GrabKick'
 or similar which can be found on aminet.
 If the image is of wrong version or altered in any way WHDLoad will quit with
 an appropriate requester.
 Additionally the file "kick40068.A1200.RTB" (resp "kick40068.A4000.RTB")
 must be installed in the same directory as the kickstart image.
 It can be found in the archive "util/boot/skick345.lha" on aminet.

 If you have problems with this installation please try and get a newer
 version of this package from the WHDLoad WWW-Page. If that doesn't help try
 some Tooltypes like NOCACHE, NOAUTOVEC, NOVBRMOVE, NOMMU, PAL or NTSC. If
 that also fails, please inform the author via the Bug-Report-Form which
 can be accessed on the WHDLoad WWW-Page.

  - reworked for WHDLoad v16 & kickemu, smaller slave, loads faster, less OS swaps

  - After load access fault removed

Notes

  - As in the original DOS release, use F5/F6 to save/load games.
  - Due to a bug in the original release, "Restart" option has been
    changed so now program loads first game (game0).
    If you did not save any game here, restart will just quit the game.
    The best thing to do to make "restart" work is to save the game at
    the very beginning (when you're in the press room with the cop)
    under position 0.
  - You need a lot of memory (about 12MB) to run that game using WHDLoad
    because of the data files.
  - Once, I experienced a game freeze (original game bug, I think). Don't forget
    to save your games from time to time...
  - I finally fixed the problem with LINC terminal: once you gained access to
    a pirate ID card, the retina scan allows you to enter the 6-digit code
    (which is now bypassed, fortunately :)). After that code, some LINC menu
    crashed the machine. Actually, it only worked on a 24 bit CPU (68000, 68010
    or 68020).
  - I would like to thank all the people who sent me their versions of the
    executable, and also pseudo-fix packages for it (good but not enough :))
    and especially Olivier Schott for completing the game with this slave
    (he used the french version).
  - Due to the size of the game, the long introduction, the amount of bugs,
    and the tests, this install was very time consuming.
    I hope you'll appreciate it.
