Version 2.1 note:   9/20/92

  This is the first version of MegaBall to be released since I got my
new Amiga 3000.  I have to thank a few hundred registered users of
previous versions of MegaBall for helping me afford this new
hardware.  I have improved some parts of the MegaBall game to
work better on the 3000, without losing 1.3 compatability.
Here they are:
* Invisible ball finally fixed.
* Music code modified -- should not skip notes on fast machines now.
* Paddle crashing through wall bug during overscan fixed.  However, there
  is also a "bug" where on systems that used to have the paddle-thru-wall
  bug, clicking the left mouse button too far to the right would pause
  the game.  This is because intuition is letting you click outside the
  screen -- MegaBall gets a message that the user has started using
  some other program, so it pauses.
  This is likely to happen if you have an overscanned WB 1.3 screen,
  or if your overscanned WB 2.x screen is visible somewhere.  It is
  just the way the OS works.  If it happens to you, then don't use
  the left mouse button!  The right mouse button and the left mouse
  button have precicely the same functions in MegaBall.  So if the
  left is causing the game to pause at unwanted moments, use the right!
* A certain form of cheating (without using the cheat keys) has been
  brought to my attention.  Some people would pause the game as the
  ball was coming down, think about where it was going to land,
  position the mouse pointer over that spot, and continue the game.
  These people are in for a suprise.
* The paddle is a bit more responsive this version.  I tried to
  accellerate it just a bit, without losing that MegaBall "feel."
* The default board set has changed.  There are 50 new boards!
* Quicksand has changed.  Muhahahha.
* Because of the above two changes, the name of the high score file
  has changed from MegaBall.scores to MegaBall2.scores.  This will
  have the effect of reseting most people's high score list for the
  default board set.  The original boards can be found in a file
  in the Boards subdir called "TheOriginal.BDS".  If you want to put
  your old high score list on this file, you should open a CLI,
  and type something like the following:

    cd dh0:games/megaball     ;or wherever you have MegaBall installed
    copy MegaBall.scores Boards/TheOriginal.BDS.scr

  A lot of people asked me how to reset a high score list.  All you
  have to do is delete or rename whatever file contains the scores.
  All MegaBall score files are compatible; the format has not
  changed.
* Funny colors in top-left corner fixed.
