 WHDLoad package.

 The installed program requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 1.5 MB OtherMem.
 It can be quit by pressing num '*' (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 If you have problems with this installation please try and get a newer
 version of this package from the WHDLoad WWW-Page.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 or create a mantis issue directly

 Version 2.3 (10.07.2023) done by paraj & JOTD:
 - fixed nasty protection check that trashed bomb location on level 5 (good find paraj!)
 - fixed missing reloc (levels 5,6,7,8)
 - added a lot of options to skip intro screens
 - added level selection
 - added level codes
 - cheat option to max out everything weapon & hardware
 
 Version 2.2 (29.11.2022) done by JOTD:
 - fixed crash on "city info" menu (needs updating of .reloc file)
 - added an option to speed up "imageworks presents" logo
 
 Version 2.1 (27.11.2022) done by JOTD & paraj:
 - fixed keyboard fix (sorry!)
 - removed old slave in the archive. The _unreloc slave is available
   to use the alternate version
   
 Version 2.0 (26.11.2022) done by JOTD & paraj:
 - paraj: faster draw operation on fast machines
 - paraj: takes advantage of AGA fmode for even better speed
 - paraj: fixed more self-modifying code
 - paraj: relocated stack in fastmem for better speed
 - JOTD: now uses fast memory for better speed
 - JOTD: restored slave source code with missing bits
 - JOTD: added more document files (hints, keys...)
 - JOTD: adapted to whdload 17
 - JOTD: quitkey on 68000/NOVBRMOVE
 - JOTD: keyboard fixed
 - JOTD: only one version supported now
 
 Version R1 (11/2001) done by Girv
 - first release
 - supports two versions of the game
 - removed self modifying code
 - removed cpu speed dependent delays
 - removed manual protection
 - enabled instruction cache

NOTES:

- The game is MUCH faster thanks to 1) relocation in fast memory (hard work) but
mostly 2) re-write of blitter drawing routines so they use CPU instead, plus a lot
more optimizations from paraj. He already helped with the latest F/18 interceptor fixes.
Big Kudos to him!

- If you get "unsupported version", it means that your version
is no longer supported for newer features. Relocating the executable
in fast memory took a lot of time and I'm not redoing it for the other
version... Use old slave instead
