Overview:

Amiga 68k port of FreeSynd v0.7.5.

FreeSynd is a cross-platform, GPLed reimplementation of engine for 
the classic Bullfrog game, Syndicate.
This is a straight SDL port with no Amiga enhancements or optimizations.
This port is unfortunately very slow on real hardware but might be 
usable on FPGA computers like the Vampire.


Requirements:

1) An RTG Amiga with a very fast 68060 processor
2) AHI installed (v4.18 recommended)
3) 3.1 ROMS (3.0 ROMS may cause it to run slowly)
4) A copy of the PC game data files


Features:

 * RTG SDL port
 * AHI Sound support
 * OGG compressed audio support
 * Fullscreen and window mode support
 
 
Configuration Options:

The tooltype 'CLOSE_WB' can be used to close the Workbench (3.1 ROMS
recommended).
You must run FreeSynd from the Workbench, running from the Shell is not
supported.
The AHI device used will be the one configured in your AHI Prefs (Unit 0).
The default game data install directory are 'Games:FreeSynd/data'.
If you decide to use a different game data directory then you'll 
need to update the 'freesynd.ini' file to match.
The mouse will automatically lock (Press CTRL-F10 to unlock).


Performance Considerations:

1) If you have a Blizzard you should really be using BlizKick, Apollo users
   should be using RemApollo.
2) Fast File System is actually really slow, use PFS3 instead.
3) Stick with v4.18 of AHI as the later versions without the 'FAST' modes are
   slower.
4) Running in a window with an 8 bit screen mode will be very slow.

 
Limitations:

1) No MIDI support


Version History:

0.7.5.01 - Initial release.
0.7.5.02 - Added mouse capture.
