Short:    HD-Installer for Kiwi Crap by Reality V1.0
Author:   Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com), ICQ: 26051687
Uploader: Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com)
Version:  1.0
Type:     demo/patch

This patch applies to "Kiwi Crap" (c) 1991 Reality - 1 disk. Download it at

- Slave requires WHDLoad V10+
- Demo requires 512k chip mem (+110k other memory for preload option)

- Full load from HD
- Decruncher relocated to fast memory
- Blitter waits added (x7)
- Empty DBF loops fixed (x2)
- Keyboard routine added
- Snoop bug fixed (byte write to volume registers)
- Fixed crash due to resetting the stack on the exploding text routine (x6)
- Added ability to skip the boring scrolltext part with a mouse click
- End of demo crash replaced with mouse button wait and clean quit
- RomIcon, NewIcon and OS3.5 Colour Icon (created by me!)
- Quit option (default key is 'F10')

This demo is very dull (and badly written in places) but it was requested
by Redblade and it's by a New Zealand group so it's now fixed.

The exploding text routine near the start completely locked up and crashed
my Amiga many times before I found the fault.  The coder Shayde must have
decided that it's far more efficient to start a blit by loading an address
register with $dff058 and then moving a data register into it.  Since all
address registers were used, he saved the stack, set the stack to $dff058
and then proceeded to start multiple blits (without any blitter waits).  A
complete unrecoverable crash was the result on almost every machine I
tested it on.

You can now skip the dull scrolling message on the screen with the picture
of New Zealand.  It just waffled on for ages!
