25 Introduction
26 ~~~~~~~~~~~~
27 This is the release version of the first Atari XL/XE chip-music collection.
28 The outfit of the whole collection was inspired by the HVSC collection (with
29 some differences). I hope you'll like this collection. To get in touch with
30 me, see the "Contact" chapter.

59 Help!
60 ~~~~~
61 As you can see, there are lots of tunes in the 'Unsorted' directory. If
62 you're 100% sure about origin of any of these tunes (Who did it, where does
63 it come from, when was it composed), please let us know immediately so that
64 we can complete the information about the tune in ASMA (and move it to the
65 right directory). We would welcome if you sent us also the binary file (or
66 an ATR/XFD disk image) with the original peace of software with that tune.
67 Mail any such information to pg@pinknet.cz. Our aim is to completely
68 annihilate the 'Unsorted' directory :-)

71 For contributors
72 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
73 If you want to send me some tunes, they must be already converted to SAP
74 format and should include all the information needed (author, name, date,
75 number of songs). If you're unsure about any information needed, you can
76 send me the music as well, maybe we can find the info together. If you don't
77 know how to create SAP files, send me the binary file with the INIT and PLAY
78 addresses and memory location where the tune has to be loaded. See SAP.TXT
79 for SAP format description. The filenames must not be longer than 26
80 characters (plus .sap) e.g.:
81
82 12345678901234567890123456.123
83 Intel_Outside_Fractal_Part.sap - all right
84 Jocky_Wilsons_Darts_Challenge.sap - wrong!
85
86 Because of compatibility reasons only characters 'A..Z', 'a..z', and '0..9'
87 can be used in the filenames. All spaces must be replaced with underscore
88 ("_"). The dash ("-") is also allowed but from no reason we don't use it :-)

91 Creator & Contributors
92 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
93 Zdenek Eisenhammer (PG of Unreal) - maintainer of the archive, ripped about
94                                     12% of the tunes
95 Adam Bienias (SoTe of Slight) - ripped over 50% of the tunes
96 Piotr Fusik (Fox of Taquart) - ripped about 15% of the tunes (now he's my
97                                main contributor). He's also author of a cool
98                                multiformat SAP converter.
99 Tamas Bene (<?> of Hard) - ripped a few tunes (when will you rip your SID
100                            emulated tunes? ;-)
101 Jindrich Kubec - ripped some tunes as well :)
102 Radek Sterba (RASTER) - sent most of his tunes. Thanx! If only every
103                         musician did this...
104 Michal Garbaciak (Dracon of Taquart) - ripped about 15% of the tunes
105 Marcin Prusisz (Pigula of Shpoon) - ripped many tunes in update 1.5
106 Slawek Sledz (Slaves of Taquart) - many bugreports in ASMA 1.6 pre-release
