<nice ascii logo wanted>

³ 1. Introduction

        Welcome in "Reverse", the first public release of the belgian crew

                        K E T C H U P  K I L L E R S      (yes!)

        What's good in this intro?

        - nice and _intelligent_ Winblows piss-off (trojans sucks)
        - hype effects (2D bump, tunnels, chaos blitter and flashs)
        - incredibly slow but nice Water Fun effect
        - good looking ketchup logo
        - fantastic and exclusive music by Magic Fred/TFLTDV (thank pal!)

³ 2. Requirements

        In order to run this intro you need:

                - 486dx4-100 or better    (P100 is recommanded)
                - a mathematic coprocessor (speed dont matter only used in
                                            various table precalculations)
                - decent SVGA video card  (640x480x256. VESA 2.0/LFB supported
                                           if available. Load Univbe)                                       available)
                - around 2 megabytes of free memory
                - a Gravis Ultrasound     (classic,max,PnP)

        For optimal performance runs this intro with your processor
        in native mode: RAW or XMS. (although it will works in V86 too)

        This intro runs _perfectly_ under Windows'95(tm) too.. It's just
        slower than under plain DOS :)  (you better have Gravis drivers
        2.0 if you want to get some sound :)

        Tested on:

        - 486dx4-100 Tseng Labs ET4000/w32i  Gravis Pnp
                                             Gravis Max
        - P100       Cirrus Logic            Gravis Classic
        - 486dx2-66  Tseng Labs ET4000/w32i  Gravis Classic
        - 486dx2-80  Cirrus Logic 5428       No Sound
        - P166       STB Lightspeed 128      No Sound
        - 586        Trident                 No Sound
        - P133       Ati Mach64 (original)   No Sound

        The intro will runs without sound also but oh well..
        (complains go quietly to /dev/null)

³ 4. Technical note

        - 100% assembler.
        - protected mode with Adam Seychel's DOS32 3.5á.
        - heavy use of FPU opcode for table precalculation.
        - sound system by Pascal of the Cubic Team. (v1.5)
        - the svga engine detects and use the following modes:
                - vesa 1.x banked only
                - vesa 2.0 banked with protected mode switch function
                - vesa 2.0 linear frame buffering
                it's a good idea to load a recent version of Univbe
        - the full source code is available for $400             ;)

        Approximate coding time: 2 weeks (party version)
