 This install applies to "F-19 Stealth Fighter"  1990 Microprose.

 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 game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+1.8 MB for preload)
 It can be quit by pressing Del (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - 3 versions supported (original release, US version, compilation version)
 - Protection removed (MFM, manual check)
 - DMA waits in sample players fixed (x6)
 - Blitter waits added (x5)
 - Interrupts fixed
 - Keyboard routine rewritten
 - Timing fixed (cross-fade effect)
 - Byte reads from $dff00a/b and $dff014/15 fixed
 - Decruncher (ProPack) relocated
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'Del')

 Another old patch has now been redone, wanted to do it for quite a while
 already and now have finally finished all work. I bought the original
 back in 1991 during my holidays in Denmark and have fond memories
 of both the holiday and the game. :) Well, I also actually bought an
 original of the C64 version back then. It's a great game on both
 machines!

 If you have installed an earlier version of the patch you need to
 reinstall as the format of the disk images has changed, now each disk
 uses exactly 1 file instead of 2 files as in the old patch. You can
 also install your existing roster disk if you wish, this is all handled
 in the install script.
 The roster data now is just a very small file instead of a whole disk
 image. If no roster data is found the patch will create it "on the fly".
 Please note that the roster data is only saved once you either complete
 a mission or abort it, the data is NOT saved after entering the pilot
 name!

 The code in the game is quite good so not much had to be fixed, I just
 had to add a few blitter waits and the sample players needed fixing
 too as they used CPU dependent delay loops for the DMA wait.
 The timing for the fade effect has been fixed as well, it is now displayed
 properly even on very fast machines.

 Protection was MFM and a manual check, I have completely disabled the
 manual check so you won't ever see it.

 Supported are all known versions of the game (2 disk UK release, 3 disk
 US release, 1 disk compilation release). If you have an unsupported
 version please contact me and I'll happily add support for it.


 Enjoy the game from HD.
