TankX is a 2-7 player tank combat shooter. Great fun with friends!

It works on kickstart 1.2, OCS, 68000, 0.5M+0.5M memory.

The original version was called Tankkk, where the number of k-letters
denoted the amount of tanks in the game. This one should then
be called Tankkkkkkk, but that would be silly.


Version 1.0 (26.7.2023)
-----------------------
- Changed the name to TankX.

- Added three more tanks, so up to 7 simultaneous players possible!
  - Tank #5 with a third set of keys which default to: U, T, 6, Y, F.
  - Tanks #6 and #7 with a parallel port joystick adapter.

- Team mode: create two teams and try to beat the other team.
  Use the tank toggle buttons to configure teams. Team 2 tanks have
  a visual indicator.

- All tanks have a distinctive color unlike previously.

- Hitting walls bounces the tank back slightly so you can't
  get stuck as easily as before.

- Hitting walls many times will eventually cause some damage
  (to encourage good driving). This can be configured with the
  "Wall damage" slider. Here the value denotes how many wall 
  hits are needed to decrease tank durability. Value 0 means 
  wall hits do not cause any damage.

- The tanks will start each battle from a safe distance from 
  each other. In team mode team 1 will start from the left
  side, team 2 from the right side.

- Tank-to-tank collision: you can no longer drive through 
  other tanks. A new sound effect added for this as well.

- New setting "Victory limit": set this to non-zero to stop the
  session after a certain number of wins achieved.

- There are now more battlefields available along with names
  for each of them. Selection is done with a pop up selector.

- The score display has a bar displaying the tank "durability" 
  beside the scores.

- Additional user created battlefields. These are searched 
  from directory "TankXFields" from PROGDIR: (kick2.0+) or  
  current dir (kick1.3). You can also specify the field directory 
  with icon tooltype "FIELD=<dir>" or with command line parameter 
  "FIELD <dir>". You can modify the contents of this directory.

  See "TankXFields/howto.txt" for instructions on how to create
  your own fields. As many fields are loaded as fit into memory.

  Compress the IFF-files with the "fimp"-compressor to fit more
  fields into memory or disk on low end Amigas (look for 
  imploder-4.0.lzh on aminet).

- In-game music. Modules are searched from directory
  "TankXMusic" from PROGDIR: (kick2.0+) or current dir (kick1.3). 
  You can also specify the music directory with icon tooltype
  "MUSIC=<dir>" or with command line parameter "MUSIC <dir>".
  You can modify the contents of this directory.

  See "TankXMusic/howto.txt" for instructions on how to create
  your own music. As many mods are loaded as fit into memory.
  The fields are loaded first.

  There's a toggle button to enable music. Tank engine sound
  will be disabled if music is playing.

  Mods can also be compressed with "fimp", this will add
  a decompression delay when switching music.

- Tank settings will be automatically saved on exit
  and restored on start up.

- The tanks can be configured to be smaller than before.

- Kill walls flash in a perilous fashion (on most fields).

- Fields can have walls that can be destroyed by shooting at them
  (used in the Boulder Dash field).

- The tank destruction sequence has color flashing.

- Icon tooltype LANGUAGE can be set to EN or FI to preset
  the language and skip the requester on startup.

- Command line parameter "EN" or "FI" can also be used to select
  the language.

- Some fixes done for the statistics calculations.

- The window for redefining keys now allows canceling with ESC.

- v0.78 crashed on exit when started from Workbench, fixed.

- In co-operation with the AmigaLive discord-community there
  are now many additional battlefields and pieces of in-game music 
  available. Thanks go to: ztronzo, aZtOcKdOg, demiurgi, 
  keyj freely, kragle, imjustpickle

 
Version 0.78 (22.4.2023)
------------------------
On the 21st of April 2023 I noticed that this does not
work on the 68000 CPU due to a memory alignment bug.
Fixed it and increased the version to v0.78.

Changes from v0.745 (11.4.1994) to v0.77 (27.12.1996)
-----------------------------------------------------
- Removed the awful 'shoot tank 4, damage tank 1'-bug.
- Added two new levels and a couple of sound effects.
- Some minor fixes and stuff.
Quite a big delay, almost three years! :-)
