This install applies to "The Ancient Art of War in the Skies" © 1993 Microprose.
This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.
The installed game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem
(+2.8 MB OtherMem for preload).
It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").
The game requires an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image.
The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from a A500 with
tools like 'GrabKick' or similar which can be found on aminet.
If the image is of wrong version or altered in any way WHDLoad will quit with
an appropriate message.
Additionally the file "kick34005.A500.RTB" must be installed in the same
directory as the kickstart image. It can be found in the archive
"util/boot/skick346.lha" on aminet.
- Full load from HD
- Protection removed (manual check)
- NewIcon (created by me)
- Source code included as usual
- Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')
The patch for this quite nice but somewhat forgotten game by Microprose
was requested back in June and I had the slave soon finished after I got
the request. Creating the install package was not something I could be
bothered to do that quickly hence it took several months to create
the full package. Today I finally spent the required time to create all
that's needed to conveniently install the game to HD.
The code is quite good as usual in Microprose games so the only required
work was to disable the protection check. That I did in such a way that
you'll never see the protection screen at all, I have skipped all protection
Supported is the SPS 1666 version, other versions MIGHT work too.
Not much more to say, enjoy this underrated classic from HD.
