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.
