                      4: This thing uses code from:
                      5: 
                      6: Reverse-engineered Atari ST frontier (David Braben, etc)
                      7: Hatari (http://hatari.sourceforge.net),
                      8: Scale2x (http://scale2x.sourceforge.net),
                      9: All the other shit i wrote myself (like the 68k assembler
                     10: and disassembler) are GPL (i guess...).
                     11: 
                     12: Type 'make' and perhaps god will favour you.

                     21: Ctrl-Q - Quit.

                     23: If you have a middle mouse button then pressing it should toggle
                     24: mouse grabbing also.

                     29: * 4096 colour palette (was 512 in ST version).
                     30: 
                     31: * dynamic colours are always allocated. frontier used to allocate 14
                     32:   dynamic colours for scenes which typically want 25-35 colours. now
                     33:   all these colours are available. this basically means frontier is
                     34:   now 256 colours from a 4096 colour palette.
                     35: 
                     36: * New option: Light/dark space colour.

                     38: * Fixed ST FE2 bug: milkyway was not visible until after a hyperspace.
                     39:

                     42: 
                     43: * ripped out the crappy sound code. sfx are now 8 or 16 bit 22khz

                     48: 2004.05.16 - Default to 'very high' detail level.
