 Changes in Version 1.2

- Added the new truck - Glutton!

- Implemented a Workaround for SiS 650/315 based video chipsets with
  the broken polygon offset feature in the current DirectX driver.

- Adjusted steering wheel separate/shared axis handling to better
  support some types of steering wheels, particularly those with a
  split pedal axis.  

  This change may require some people to reset the wheel and pedals
  under Options/Controls before it is read properly in the game.  

- When a joystick or wheel is detected for the first time, the
  acceleration/brake axis defaults to 1 axis/- and 1 axis/+.

- Decreased the relative size of memory allocated for resources
  to improve performance for people with computers near the minimum
  system requirements.

- Adjusted "maximum frame duration" constant to help with trailers
  detaching without apparent reason for people with computers near
  the minimum system requirements.

- Modified the Options/Graphics setting to enable "Unfiltered" Texture
  Filtering method, primarily for use as a troubleshooting tool for 
  people with graphics cards near the minimum system specification.

  This setting is not recomended as the performance gain is typically 
  minor, but the detrimental effect on graphics quality is substantial.  

  Note: you must completely exit and restart the application after
  selecting to the unfiltered setting.

- Weigh stations no longer switch between open and closed while the
  player is nearby.

- Police are more likely to catch the player for speeding or
  bypassing an open weigh station.

- Police cars and ambulances appear slightly less frequently.

- Very rare loads (5-axel trailer) appear slightly more frequently.

- Fast tapping on brake no longer makes the truck go faster.

- Adjusted the Topolino truck's brakes to be slightly more efficient.

- Fixed toggle HUD key not to interfere when typing text.

- Brake lights work properly with manual transmission.

- Exhaust is no longer generated when shifting gears without engine
  switched on with manual transmission.

- Red sports car wheels fixed.

- Large sedan model uses all three textures available.

- Fixed "end of highway" sign.

- Now using Ogg Vorbis version 1.0 for sound.

- Version number added to main menu.

- Added special thanks to TruckSims and TruckPol to credits.
