HD installyesHD notes

- HD installer is contained on disk 1.

- According to the manual, players may not be able to launch the game off HD via WB due to a lack of memory. Instead, players on 2MB machines should attempt to execute the HD installed game from CLI/shell by booting with no startup-sequence (boot while holding down both mouse buttons to access this option from the early startup menu) and typing:

CD DHx: WormsDC (replace DHx with HD volume - e.g. CD DH0:WormsDC or CD Work:Games/WormsDC)

Requirements (recommended): AGA chipset, 2MB chipram, accelerator (68020/16.67MHz or better), fastram (extra memory rewards players with more in-game features).

[3] Game manufactured/published by Ocean on behalf of Team 17.

[4] Distributed by Ocean in the UK, Bomico in Germany and Mirage in Poland.

[5] Game features mouse-keyboard/joypad control, a built-in construction kit (players can use Graffiti Mode to draw what they want and turn it into a level), speech synthesis, loading/saving teams & stats, loading/saving of customised levels (floppy/HD) created using a 3rd party graphics package and the WormPrefs utility on disk 3 (see pp15-16 of manual for further details) and a quit back to WB option.

TRIVIA: Announced in advance that WORMS: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT would be their last Amiga game, Team 17 made a point of releasing it exclusively for the Amiga 1200/4000 and foregoing the release of lucrative conversions to more commercially viable and popular platforms of the day in 1996/97 (e.g. PC, PSX).
