DESCRIPTION

An editor for use with the Formula One Grand Prix or World Circuit game
(published by MicroProse Software).  It is very easy to use, with a
standard 2.0 look graphical user interface (even on KS 1.x!) and on-line
help should you need it.

Allows you to alter most of the in-game setup, including computer car
performance, car/helmet/pitcrew colours, car fragility and many other
things (and I MEAN many!).  Sound samples can also be replaced, cockpit
graphics changed, and lap records and setups printed.

Changes can be saved directly to a copy of the game which is running in
memory, or to the main file used by the game for a more permanent change.

Also incorporated in the main program are a number of memory patches,
including Toni Wilen's GPPatch and Grant Reeve's PatchF1GP.

F1GP-Ed breathes new life into an ageing, but excellent game.  1994, 1995,
1996 and 1997 sample datafiles supplied for those who don't want to mess
about.

The program itself is auto-enhancing, which means that it will run on a
basic A500 with KS 1.2, but will make use of KS 2.x or KS 3.x specific
routines on suitable machines to make itself even better.

Supported languages:

English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish,
Norwegian and Czech.

NEW FEATURES

o GPPatch "turbo keys" can now be disabled
o "Exit to DOS - Are you sure?" requester in the game can now be skipped
o The time it takes for a pitstop can now be adjusted
o Colours can now be imported from (and exported to) IFF image / palette
  files
o "Practice Fuel Load" feature has been improved - the fuel load calculated
  will now be exactly the same as the fuel load in a race of the same
  number of laps
o Localized a lot of the older strings that couldn't be translated before
o Optimized (40% reduction) the data used to draw the images in the colour
  editors - this means the colour editors will open faster initially and
  the images will be drawn a little bit faster.

And, of course, some bug fixes ;-)  

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Formula One Grand Prix or World Circuit game by Geoff Crammond, published
commercially originally by MicroProse Software.

Approximately 1.5Mb of free ram needed to load the game and the editor to
be able to use the memory patches.  But, the editor itself and most of the
features will work on machines with less memory.
