 EXTRA NOTES
 -----------

Here  is  the  lamentable  Top  Gear 2 from Gremlin.  I think I like others
wondered what the hell Gremlin were doing releasing this tame Lotus effort.
In  fact, Gremlin were responsible for the Lotus series on the Amiga, so it
begs  the  question,  why  then churn out something after Lotus that wasn't
even half as good?

ECS   version  is  mildly   more  playable  on  an AGA  Amiga  due  to  the
increased  frame  rate.   The  only thing this game has going for it is the
music.......

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The  kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
must  be  named  "kick34005.A500".  The image can be extracted from an A500
with tools like "GrabKick" or similar which can be found on Aminet.  If the
image is the wrong version or altered in any way, WHDLoad will quit with an
appropriate error 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/skick343.lha" on Aminet.

                                OR

The game requires an installed A1200/A4000 Kickstart 3.1 image.
The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts"  and
must be named  "kick40068.A1200"  or  "kick40068.A4000" .  The image can be
extracted from a  A1200/A4000  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  "kick40068.A1200.RTB" or  "kick40068.A4000.RTB" must
be installed in the same directory as the kickstart image.  It can be found
in the archive "util/boot/skick345.lha" on aminet.
