Short:    HD-Installer for Switchblade 2 V1.1
Author:   Galahad of Fairlight (phillbb@ic24.net)
Version:  1.1
Type:     game/patch

This patch applies to Switchblade 2, 1991 Gremlin Graphics
1 Disk version, GBH Budget release

Slave requires WHDLOAD V10+.
Game requires 0.8 MB Chip Mem (+ 0.8 other memory for preload option)

- Full load from Hard drive
- Lame-o-Protect removed
- 1x Bus error removed (Exits would not open if not removed)
- Load/Save Hiscores to Hard drive
- Quit option is 'F9'

- Decruncher relocated to Fast Ram
- Delay for intro added and exit from intro with fire button added
- Changed Quit key to 'Del'

- The following changes were done by Codetapper:
- Data files now installed in data subdirectory
- Colour bit fixes (x18)
- RomIcon, NewIcon and GlowIcon included

- Taken from Sweet Cheater by Keith Krellwitz!
- On the title screen, type "LEVELn" and press fire to start on the
  corresponding level.  Where 'n' is the level number like "LEVEL2"
  to go to level two.

Thanks to John Regent for disk image.

Because some games operate on interrupts slightly differently than others,
I had to extend the base memory from 512k to nearly 772k.  This means that
the intro music will play properly without cutting out all the time.
Seeing as most people have a hell of a lot more memory than this install
requires, I hardly think its extravagent!

The secret game has been REMOVED!  For those that are aware, on the
original you would type 'Chrome' on the titlescreen.  This has been removed
for two reasons:

1) Codetapper of Action has already fixed this game seperately
2) It takes up over 100k of drive space

Hardly seems the point to duplicate the work of others!

The disk format was originally SS-MFM (Shaun Southern), I have ripped the
custom disk format to install the game as REAL files instead.

This install was done on a Amiga 68o6o, so I'm quite confident it will
work!!  :)

The Imager is written to take care of the GBH budget release, and whilst I
am sure Gremlin did not change it from the original release, you attempt to
install this game AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Have a merry christmas and a happy new year........ :)
