Short:    HD Installer for Violator v2.0
Author:   Bored Seal & DJ Mike (djmike@crystalmike.com; ICQ: 35028461)
Uploader: DJ Mike (djmike@crystalmike.com)
Version:  2.0
Type:     game/patch
Requires: WHDLoad 10, 512k chip mem

This patch applies to "Violator" (c) Codemasters 1991

VERSIONS SUPPORTED:
- Original release
- Quattro Power Machines compilation disk 2 (CAPS Archive #2145)
- Cracked versions may now work, but I offer no guarantees (I tested only one)

REQUIREMENTS:
- Original disk (x1) OR disk image
- RawDIC for the imager
- Slave requires WHDLoad V10+.
- Game requires 512k chip mem
  (+300-800k other memory for preload option)

IMPORTANT!
If you have a v1.0/1.1 installation, you MUST DO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:
- Make a folder inside your existing install called "data", and move your
  Disk.1 file inside it. Then you can copy the new .slave from this archive
  over the existing one in your install.
- OR You can reinstall using this new archive - you do NOT need your original
  disk if you have the TrackWarp package from http://www.whdload.de/whdload.
  Make sure you don't delete your original install! :-)
  - During re-installation when RawDIC appears click "Select File" and locate
    your ORIGINAL install and select Disk.1 - RawDIC will then use this and
    extract all files to your NEW install!

FEATURES:
- Game loads entirely from HD
- Supports two versions (Original and Quattro Power Machines releases)
- Now uses real files (v2.0) - extracted from RawDIC imager
- Original version files can be compressed with XPK/ProPack/etc. to save space
  (Quattro release is already compressed)
- Also compatible with raw disk image from v1.0/1.1 installation (see above)
- Quit to Workbench at any time (Default key: F10) on ALL Amigas
- Rob Northen Copylock protection removed
- Keyboard interrupt access fault fixed (crashed during Level 1)
- Blitter waits inserted
- 1x Empty code loop replaced
- High scores loaded and saved on disk (unless you cheat)
- Use BUTTONWAIT flag to wait for fire button on title picture
- Trainer option - set CUSTOM1=1 then use the following keys in-game:
  - F1 toggles Infinite Lives
  - F2 toggles Infinite Ammo
  - F3 toggles Invulnerable To Bullets
  - F4 toggles Invulnerable To Other Aircraft
- ROM/NewIcons by Midwik & JHZ and DJ Mike

HISTORY:
v1.0 (Bored Seal 01-Jul-1999)
  - First public release
v1.1 (Bored Seal 27-Nov-2000)
  - All blitter bugs fixed, trainer changed
v2.0 (DJ Mike 30-Jul-2006)

    with old v1.0/1.1 though)
  - High scores now loaded and saved on disk
  - Quit key fixed to work on 68000 machines
  - Improved blitter bug scanning code

NOTES FROM BORED SEAL:

Thanks to Skreen for disk image.

NOTES FROM DJ MIKE:

This game is far too hard without the trainer switched on!! Still, it was an
interesting one to poke around in and add some new features to! :-)

Special thanks to Bored Seal for letting me update this one!

Greetings to Codetapper, Wepl, and all WHDLoad supporters!
