Monkey Business: First Commercial Amiga Game - It Exists! BELIEVE IT or NOT!!!

When the 1000 was designed they wanted to keep the costs as low as possible so they decided to offer it with 256k against the desires of Jay Miner. He knew it was way too limited. The compromise was offering a “cheap” add on card to bring it up to 512k. Well they were pretty much sold together from the beginning as it was a much needed upgrade. When I bought my 1000 in early 1986, it came with the 256k card and the 1080 monitor as a bundle. Not an add on. It was not like the 500 with it’s optional 501 card.

Just noticed an s-s edited ADF by Retroplay into the Zone!, for a cleaned and more "authentic" look.
Rightly removed the beta status since it seems to work completely.
Until an original comes out, this is the version to archive.

Thanks chaps.
Fryguy (IIRC) upped a ctraw image, unfortunately knackered, of Delta Patrol a while back, so I just copied s-s from that and did a few edits.

Changed disk name too to match as well.

That old s-s Niwa added really did "stroke my hairs against the grain", so to speak.
