INSTALLING THE GAME

    Extract all files in the release archive to your system.

    Double click on the "Install" icon present in the extraction
    directory and follow the instructions given by the Installer
    program.

    The game will be installed to a directory you select on your
    hard drive. You will be alerted if installation fails for any
    reason, please contact the author if this happens.


PLAYING THE GAME

    Open the game drawer created during installation and click on the
    icon to start the game.


    The following keys may be used while the game is running:

      Q       = abort the current race

      ESC/F10 = quit game and return to Workbench

    High scores are loaded and saved from hard disk.

    The icon tooltype "CUSTOM2" controls the framerate adjustment feature.
    If the game is running too quickly on you machine, increase the value
    of this tooltype to slow it down. A value of 0 means maximum speed
    (default), higher values mean slower speeds.

    mine anyway since it was so far along.
