 This install applies to "Player Manager 2"  1995 Anco.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and DIC 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:
 ECS version: 1.0 MB ChipMem (+2.7MB for preload option) 
 AGA version: 2.0 MB ChipMem (+3.6MB for preload option)
 It can be quit by pressing Del (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - supports ECS and AGA version
 - Load/Save from data disk supported
 - Protection removed (ECS: 25xchecksums, 2xdisk checks,
                            1x"Cobra X-Rom" encryption
                       AGA: 20xchecksums, 1xdisk check,
                            1x"Cobra X-Rom" encryption)
 - DMA wait in sample player fixed (empty dbf)
 - Keyboard routines fixed
 - ButtonWait tooltype can be used to see title pictures
 - Automatic creation of data disk (see below)
 - NewIcons and OS3.5+ colour icons (all created by Irek'72)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'Del')


 Update 4.12.2011:
 I finally corrected the install script, the old one was buggy
 and skipped track 1 on all disks thus the installed game didn't
 work because data was missing. Thanks to Wepl for making me
 aware of this problem.

 This version now also adds support for the AGA version of
 Player Manager 2. I coded the slave for the AGA version back
 in January 2010 shortly after I made the ECS slave. I didn't
 get around to updating the install till now though, shame
 on me! Luckily that's fixed now so enjoy! 



 Here's my last patch in 2009. :) Requested on EAB by Lolafg and
 so I did it. Not hard to do, just the usual insane amount of
 checksums and horrible keyboard routines as in most of the
 newer Anco games. 

 Since this game seems to be somewhat rare this patch only
 supports one version so far, if you have an unsupported
 ECS version feel free to contact me and I'll update the patch.

 Just like the Kick Off 3 European Challenge patch this patch
 requires 1MB Chipmem because the Anco coders still weren't able to code
 a simple relocation routine. Instead they wasted a lot of disk space
 and included 2 binaries for everything that contained code,
 one for 1MB Chip machines, one for 512k/512k at $c00000 machines.
 No further comments needed I guess.

 You can use the "ButtonWait" tooltype to see the title pictures,
 press left mouse button to skip them.

 If you already have a save disk you can create an image of it using
 tools like DIC (can be found in the WHDLoad package), rename
 the image to "disk.4" and copy it to the installation directory.

 If no save disk is found it will be created, this feature
 can be disabled with the CUSTOM1=1 tooltype.


 Have fun with this game from HD now.
