Blobwars: Metal Blob Solid (v0.98.1 update patch)

This is a patch to update the AmigaOS4 version of Blobwars v0.96
(release 2) to v0.98.1.

1) Requirements

To apply this patch, you need 'gpatch' which should be included in
this archive. If not, you can get it from Aminet (util/misc/gpatch.lha).

And of course you need Blobwars 0.96 release 2. To check what revision
you own, do the following:

   - Open a Shell

   - Go to the Blobwars directory

   - Enter 'Blobwars -version' (without quotes ;) )

   - Then you shoud read something like:
  'Blob Wars, Episode I - Metal Blob Solid (Version 0.96, Release 2)'

2) Installation

Just start the supplied install script, select the Blobwars directory
and let the installer do his work.

The installer will patch the Blobwars executable and also the file
gamedata/blobwars.pak to a new version.


For security reasons the installer will calculate checksums for both
patched files. If it does NOT complain about any wrong checksums,
you're done.

3) Note on older savegames


Don't use it!
Either start with the game from scratch again or stay with your
old Blobwars version 0.96.2.

4) Changelog (AOS4 version)

0.98.1 (28.11.2004)
   FIX: Handling of fullscreen/window toggle.

0.96.2 (06.11.2004)
   FIX: Jumping from the last menu item to the first item with
 cursor-down could cause a grim reaper on Pre-Release2.
   FIX: Particle blitting could crash in fullscreen mode.
   FIX: Removed debug output.

5) Changelog (official)

Version 0.98

* Very minor changes to some levels

Version 0.97

* Added Key configuration screen
* Added a warning when running the game as root
* Added animation graphics for Aqua Blob and Spider Blobs
* Stopped doors from closing on Bob (and enemies)
* Prevented enemies from spawning within doors
* Removed cheat option for "Super Jump" and replaced with "More Blood and Gore"
* Added a check to enemies to ensure they are no longer referenced by bullets
before deletion
* Added keyboard repeat (so up and down hand be held in menus)
* Restored gravity to previous limits (- +12 instead of - + 30). This change
made some levels
  impossible since Bob now fell far too quickly.
* Removed a potentially fatal blit onto a locked surface (particles.cpp).
* Add "Exit" signs for levels in which the player must get to the exit.
* Misc gameplay, level and graphical tweaks.

Have a lot of fun!
