V1.2 (15-Apr-2023) - patch rewritten

                     or fire button 2 (player), issue #6039
                   - high scores are saved automatically now
                   - keyboard routine rewritten
                   - 68000 quitkey support
                   - default quitkey changed to F10
                   - DMA wait in replayer and sample player fixed
                   - self-modifying code fixed
                   - new install script
                   - source code included

Note for V1.2

The patch has been rewritten, it now features 68000 quitkey support, options
to throw grenades with right mouse button or fire button 2 and some trainer
options have been added as well. The high score saving is now done
automatically, old high scores will be not be converted as crucial data is
missing (the high score saving didn't work properly in the previous versions).

Thanks to Carlo Pirri for disk image and betatesting.
