This install applies to "Pacific Islands" © 1992 Empire.
This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
This program 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=").
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 message.
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/skick346.lha" on aminet.

Here's the patch for the sequel to Team Yankee. It is almost the same
game thus creating this patch didn't take long as I just adapted my Team
Yankee patch. Thus what I said about Team Yankee applies to this game too.
The code is quite clean but also rather slow, the 3d code
could have been a lot faster! Speaking of the 3d code, the line drawer
used SMC which made the game crash on fast machines such as my A4000/60.
I have fixed this, the game runs with full caches now.
I have completely disabled the protection screen so you won't ever have
to click on any tanks before starting the game.
You can skip the intro with the Custom1=1 tooltype.
If you want to enable the built-in cheat use the Custom2=1 tooltype, you
can then use the following keys:
Left Amiga + W: win game
Left Amiga + T: add time
Left Amiga + S: show tanks
In the map screen you can use left Amiga and a number from 1 to 4 (this
is your unit) to move the chosen unit instantly to the selected
Enjoy the game from HD now.
