Short:    HD-Installer for Apocalypse V1.0
Author:   Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com), ICQ: 26051687
Uploader: Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com)
Version:  1.0
Type:     game/patch

This patch applies to "Apocalypse" (c) 1994 Miracle Games/Virgin - 3 disks.
Thanks to Chris Vella for sending the original!

REQUIREMENTS:
- Slave requires WHDLoad V10+
- Game requires 930k chip mem (+2.7Mb other memory for preload option)

FEATURES:
- Full load from HD
- 24 bit access faults fixed (x7)
- IFF anim player bug fixed (bgt.b -> bge.b)
- Empty DBF loops fixed (x8)
- Blitter waits added (x17)
- Colour bit fixes (x7)
- Decruncher relocated to fast memory
- Trainer added: 'Help' to skip levels, and 'Del' to toggle the cheat mode 
  (set CUSTOM1=1 to enable it automatically). When the cheat mode is active
  you get infinite lives, fire, seekers, rockets, mines and the helicopter
  can take an unlimited number of POW's
- Instructions included
- RomIcon, NewIcons and OS3.5 Colour Icons (created by Chris Vella, Frank, 
  Mad-Matt and me!) and 2 Exoticons (taken from http://exotica.fix.no/)
- Quit option (default key is 'F10')

CHEAT MODE:
- Taken from Sweet Cheater by Keith Krellwitz!
- During play, enter "KNARF" by doing the following:

  Press and hold 'K', press and hold 'N' while still holding 'K'.
  Release 'K', press and hold 'A' while still holding 'N'.
  Release 'N', press and hold 'R' while still holding 'A'.
  Release 'A', press and hold 'F' while still holding 'R'.
  Release 'R', release 'F'.

  You are now invincible to enemy fire.  The cheat is disabled after you
  finish a level, so the cheat must be entered at the beginning of each
  new level.

Quite simply, this install was a nightmare!  After putting in a lot of 24
bit fixes for the intro I found a bug in the IFF animation depacking
routine.  Someone had put a bgt.b instead of a bge.b and that meant the
game kept looking past the end of the IFF file.  Fixing that one line meant
the intro now worked without any bugs! Each of the levels had to be 
individually patched as the code was slightly different and in different
places.

The trainer code was adapted from the Toxic!/Hoodlum trainer - thanks dude!
You can set CUSTOM1=1 to enable the trainer automatically.

This game does not like to be run in NTSC mode - the screen will turn black 
if the chopper flies too low on the screen.

Greetings to Chris for the original and the nice icon, Frank for his great
icons and testing, Mad-Matt for his icon, Tony for testing, Ralf for the
original JST install (even though it's buggy!), Wepl for WHDLoad, all
Action and HOL members, my testing crew and the entire WHDLoad team!
