Overview:

Amiga 68k port of Exult.

As computers evolve, we risk losing classic games from the not-so-distant past.
One of these, Ultima 7, an RPG from the early 1990's, still has a huge
following, and many consider it to be one of the most immersive games ever
produced. Exult is a project to recreate Ultima 7 for modern operating systems,
using the game's original plot, data, and graphics files.


Requirements:

1) An AGA Amiga (PAL only) with a 68060 processor
2) AHI installed (v4.18 highly recommended for real 68k users)
3) 3.1 ROMS (3.0 ROMS may cause it to run slowly)
4) A copy of the PC game data files


Features:

 * AGA SDL port...yes really!
 * Double buffered 256 colour display
 * MIDI support (using the CAMD library)
 * AHI Sound support
 
 
Configuration Options:

You must run Exult from the WB, running from the Shell is not supported.
You should specify a stack of at least 300,000 (the icon does this for you BTW).
The AHI device used will be the one configured in your AHI Prefs (Unit 0).
You will need to install the CAMD library if you want to use an external MIDI
device.
The default install directory is 'Games:Exult'.
The default game data install directories are 'Games:Exult/Ultima 7 Serpent
Isle' and 'Games:Exult/Ultima 7 Black Gate'.
If you decide to use a different game data directories then you'll need to
update the 'exult.cfg' file to match.
Do not change any of the graphics options....you will break something!


Performance Considerations:

 1) You should always patch exec.library's CopyMem() and CopyMemQuick() routines
for faster processor specific versions.
 2) Try reducing the audio playback frequency down to 8k if you're still having
performance issues.
 3) If you are using Paula, stick with the 'FAST' 8/14 bit modes for AHI (prefs)
- a real 16 bit card may be faster with a 16 bit mode.
 4) This game really hits the hard drive so you'll need a fast transfer rate for
the newer games (see below)
 5) FFS is really really slow, use PFS3 instead
 6) Loading your ROM into FASTRAM is a great idea (see below)
 7) If you have a Blizzard you should really be using BlizKick to get most speed
out of your Amiga, Apollo users should be using RemApollo.
 8) Stick with v4.18 of AHI as the later versions without the 'FAST' modes are
very slow

 
Limitations:

1) No RTG support
2) No OGG digital music support
