 This install applies to "Push Over"  1992 Ocean.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 It 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 and 0.5 MB OtherMem
 (+1.6 MB OtherMem for preload and Kickstart ROM)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (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.



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (Copylock)
 - Timing fixed (can be disabled with CUSTOM4)
 - Decruncher (ProPack) relocated to fast memory
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed
 - Typo in language selection screen fixed (DUETSCH->DEUTSCH)
 - Intro can be skipped with CUSTOM1
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM2/3, see below)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Another very old (1999) patch which really needed an update as quite
 a few problems weren't fixed. Now they are. :)

 The game ran way too fast on fast machines, choosing the language
 for example was almost impossible. I have fixed these problems so
 the game can be played at normal speed now! The timing fix can be
 disabled with CUSTOM4=1. There also was an annoying typo in the
 language selection screen which I have fixed too. It's now also
 possible to skip the very long intro which is quite an improvement
 in my opinion as the intro, as nice as it is, can't be skipped at all
 in the original game which is quite annoying.
 The patch also works with 0.5MB chip memory now!

 I have also added some trainer options which can be enabled
 with CUSTOM2/3, these are:

 CUSTOM2=1: enables unlimited time
 CUSTOM3=1: enables in-game keys, following keys are available:
            N - skip level
            S - let computer auto solve the level (doesn't work for
                all levels)
            T - toggle unlimited time
            F - toggle timing fix

 These options should be enough to make the game a bit easier without
 spoiling it too much.

 Enjoy this nice game from HD.
