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.
2) 68060 processor or better.
3) 64 MB of RAM.
4) AHI installed and configured (see links section below).
5) 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 'closewb' can be used to close the Workbench.
When running from the Shell you must specify a stack of at least 300,000.
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 (CTRL+m to unlock when running in a window).


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) Playing OGG compressed music on a real Amiga will be very slow.   
5) Running in a window with an 8 bit screen mode will very slow.


Limitations:

1) No MIDI support.
