Amiga Configuration Screen
When the WTSS Title screen appears (where it comes up with a language choice), you can press F8 at any time to bring up the Amiga configuration screen.
F3 – Screen Redraw type
Type 1 = CPU redraw
Type 2 = Blitter redraw
This basically selects between pure CPU redraw conversion of the ST to Amiga screen or the use of blitter. Anything 020+ should use type 1, anything less should use type 2
F4 – Music
Self explanatory. Unlike the other options, changing the music can only be done when this Amiga Configuration screen is onscreen, because of the loading and depacking to memory, the other options are instant and can be accessed without the Amiga Configuration screen being visible.
F5 – Spectrum Mode
Its called me being a twat! The Spectrum version didn’t look quite that bad, but its not far off it
F6 – Speed Throttle
Basically press to select whatever works best for you. The faster the processor you have, the higher Speed throttle rating you should be using to scale the speed down, otherwise health and strength meters will dwindle very quickly!
M – Toggle music on or off
Space Bar – Toggle Character/object menu
F1 on title screen – Toggles German or English text. Default is English.
