 This install applies to "Silicon Sounds"  1992 Quartz.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 These programs can be found in the WHDLoad package.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed demo requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+0.9 MB for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - OS stuff patched/emulated (DoIO)
 - Interrupt bug fixed
 - Write to INTREQR fixed (x2)
 - Byte write to COPJMP1 fixed
 - Odd address copperlist disabled
 - Illegal copperlist entries fixed (x4)
 - Blitter wait added
 - DMA settings fixed
 - Bplcon0 color bit fix
 - Decruncher (ByteKiller) relocated to fast memory and error check added
 - Source code included
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 The code isn't exactly great here and specially the interrupt code
 was buggy, I wonder how this music disk could ever work at all.
 Instead of saving/restoring the full contents of all registers in the
 level 3 interrupt the coder found it appropriate to just save/restore words
 (movem.w d0-a7,-(a7); movem.w (a7)+,d0-a7), great idea, NOT!

 I also had to add a blitter wait as otherwise the menu wouldn't have been
 displayed on fast machines. Other than that there wasn't much to do.

 I have relocated and optimised the ByteKiller decruncher and also added
 an error check, if decrunching fails WHDLoad will quit with an appropriate
 error message.
 

 Enjoy the music disk from HD.
