 This install applies to "Compass #1"  1994 Alcatraz.

 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 diskmag requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem
 (+1.0 MB OtherMem for preload and Kickstart ROM).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 The diskmag 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
 - Interrupt fixed
 - Bplcon0 color bit fixes (x3)
 - AGA specific stuff (Bplcon3, fetch mode) disabled
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Excellent diskmag which was released a while after McDisk died.
 Unfortunately only one issue was ever released.

 Great tune by Brainbug, lots of interesting articles (there is
 an interview with Laxity/Kefrens for example) and nice design
 which stood the test of time well, still looks good 20 years later!

 Code is very good and almost 100% system-friendly hence the patch
 needs a Kickstart 1.3 ROM.


 Enjoy this great mag from HD.
