 This install applies to "Arachnophobia"  1991 Disney Software.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 This program can be found in the WHDLoad package.
 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
 (+1.8 MB for preload and Kickstart ROM)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (manual check, PAL check)
 - Blitter register access fixed (x4)
 - Intro can be skipped with CUSTOM1
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM2, see below)
 - Start level can be selected with CUSTOM3
 - Load/Save supported and adapted to use WHDLoad functions
 - 3 NewIcons (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 This was requested yesterday on EAB by AxelFoley and today I made
 this patch which was quite fun to do. I have skipped the manual
 protection completely and also added some extra options and trainers.
 The rather long intro can be skipped with CUSTOM1 and if the game
 is too hard for you CUSTOM2 can be used to enable various trainer
 options, these are:

 CUSTOM2= 1: enables unlimited energy
 CUSTOM2= 2: enables unlimited spray
 CUSTOM2= 4: enables unlimited bombs
 CUSTOM2= 8: enables unlimited flamethrower ammo
 CUSTOM2=16: enables in-game keys, you can then use following keys:
             n - skips current level (town)
             s - refills spray
             b - adds 1 bomb
             f - enables flamethrower

 To select more than one trainer just add together the numbers for the
 options you want to enable, f.e. CUSTOM2=5 (1+4) will enable unlimited
 energy and unlimited bombs. You can of course also easily select the
 options in WHDLoad's splash window.
 
 The starting level can be selected with the CUSTOM3 tooltype, valid
 numbers are 1-7 which will select the corresponding level.
 

 The game has been programmed in C with a bit of assembly,
 code is quite good, there only was one major bug:
 using address $0.w to set Bltcon1 is not exactly a bright idea,
 I have fixed this of course. 

 Enjoy the game from HD, it's looks and sounds nice but gets
 boring quite quickly due to the rather repetitive game play.
