Zikdisk 2 by Paradize [web]

  0. Introduction

  This is a long delayed YM music disk by Paradize featuring
  34 YM tunes made by Marcer.
  The Zikdisk concentrates on the music and therefor is a bit
  tame in other effects or onscreen movement.

  1. System requirements

  Atari STFM/STE/TT/Falcon 030 with at least 1MB RAM
  color monitor
  SingleTOS (Mint + Magic are not officially supported)

  Zikdisk 2 will load all tunes into a RAM Disk if there is
  enough RAM available.

  You can install Zikdisk 2 on your hardisk. Just copy the folder
  from the floppy anywhere on your harddisk.

  For best results use a genuine Atari STE with 4MB RAM!

  3. Program usage

  Just doubleclick on ZIKDISK2.PRG. If your ST has not enough RAM,
  he will tell you and exit.

  A short introduction will follow. On the main screen, SPACE
  toggles between DISCO mode and MENU mode. In MENU mode it will
  display a list of songs to select. Just press the corresponding
  key to load and play the tune.

  DISCO mode is flashy for the dancers and ravers out there :)

  ESC will terminate the main screen to the endpart which displays
  various things about the tunes.

  4. Known incompatibilities

  The tunes "CPU Slider" and "YM2149 Final" only work on STEs
  with 4MB RAM. Sorry but this seems a problem with malloc()
  within the Maxymiser replay routine.

  5. Tune extractor

  EXTRACT.PRG will extract all SNDH files from the linkfile so
  you can individually play and use them.

  Make sure there is enough free space on your harddisk for this.
