5This is basically registered Abuse, with slight modifications
6and removal of material that might not be public domain. Abuse
7is a side-scrolling action game made by the now-defunct
8Crack dot Com. It's an excellent single and multi-player game,
9with a superb level editor and a unique control system.

19NOTES
20-----
21
22* Satan Paint, the artwork editor for Abuse, is included in
23fRaBs, along with the generic DOS4GW. Check the /art folder.
24
25* Thanks for all your support and comments folks, I'm glad
26you all are still interested in the reigning king of action
27side-scrolling games. Rock on!
28
29* Claudio's addon enhances this version of Abuse with many new
30enemies and objects. Aliens Abuse objects and art are also
31included. However, do not try to run the original versions of
32these addons with fRaBs, as these versions have had significant
33and necessary changes so that they work more smoothly with Abuse.
34Just trust me... you'll be fine with what you have. :)
35
36* I hope to include the updates of the Twisted Minds addon whenever
37the creator, Profound, releases them. This addon allows you to
38ride vehicles and also has a twisted set of Super Mario Bros. art
39and graphics. Read the readme in /addon/twist for more information,
40and to use the whole Twisted Minds object set, be sure to run the
41proper batch file, as not all of these objects are included when you
42normally run fRaBs. The object menu would get really crazy if they
43were included.
44
45* Before running this, make sure you run SETUP.EXE and configure
46settings for your soundcard. Next, check the gamma settings by
47running Abuse and clicking the darkest visible color on the
48Gamma control button (Monitor w/ RGB).
49
50* Remember that because most of /music is deleted, you will not
51hear music in the game, so there's no point in trying to configure
52it in SETUP.EXE. It might not work anyways. :)
53
54* By using these commands, you can play levels from the command-line.
55You can either do this from a DOS window or by making a shortcut
56or by using the RUN command from the Start menu in Windows.
57
58abuse.exe -f blahblah.spe
59abuse.exe -f levels/blahblah.spe
60
61* To use Abuse's powerful level editor, use this command.
62
63abuse.exe -edit
64abuse.exe -edit -f whatever.lvl
65
66* A detailed HTML readme is found in /docs.
