          util/misc/gpatch.lha

Changes the ZX Datatype colour palette to more accurate Spectrum colours.
To install this patch, double-click on the "install" icon.  A window should
appear
showing "Installing patches... OK".  If this does not happen, please ensure:

You have zx.datatype version 39.3 (18/11/1996) installed in
SYS:Classes/Datatypes
You have GPatch in C: - I use version 2.6 (18/11/1998)

If both the above apply, send me an email with the error you get and I'll do my
best to work out what the problem is.

Please note that your original copy of zx.datatype will be renamed
zx.datatype.old - if
something goes wrong with the patching, this will need to be renamed back to
zx.datatype
before you will be able to load SCRs through Datatypes again.

Thanks to Gerard Sweeney for, erm, "encouraging" me to embark on this project.
Fortunately it didn't take very long.

SAVESCREEN.ZXAM

As a small bonus, I've included Gerard Sweeney's modified ZXAM IFF save script.
Note that the palette on the script and the one in the patched ZXDT are not
identical.

DISCLAIMER
I accept no responsibility for any damage or loss of data caused by the patched
version of
zx.datatype or the installation script.  gpatch and the original version of
zx.datatype are
not the responsibility of the author of this patch.  This patch is not by or
officially
endorsed by the author of zx.datatype - All use is at your own risk.
