 This install applies to "Big Run"  1992 Storm.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 It 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 (0.9 MB for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (Copylock, done by Mr.Larmer)
 - Decruncher (Imploder) relocated to fast memory
 - Timing fixed (game is playable on fast machines now)
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM1 and CUSTOM2 tooltypes, see below)
 - Drive access disabled
 - Odd address copperlist disabled
 - Keyboard routine fixed
 - Interrupts fixed
 - High score load/save (only if no trainers/cheats are used)
 - NewIcon and MagicWB icon (created by Mr.Larmer I think)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 Here's the updated patch for this rather mediocre game. There was a thread
 on EAB some days ago where someone asked for a tool to degrade the CD32 to
 A500 speed. He needed it for some games which run too fast and Big Run was
 mentioned as one of these games. Out of curiosity I had a look and the game
 was indeed unplayable on my 060 A4000. The programmer used the old "trick"
 not to wait for the vertical blank because the game runs in 2 frames on the
 A500. Once I found and fixed that problem I continued to work on the patch
 as there were some more problems such as drive access, an odd address
 copperlist (probably used as cartridge protection) and some other things.
 I also added some trainers even though these are not really needed in my
 opinion as the game is rather easy. To enable the trainer options
 you can use the CUSTOM1 tooltype (or simply use WHDLoad's splash window).

 Available options are:
 CUSTOM1= 1: unlimited time
 CUSTOM1= 2: unlimited credits
 CUSTOM1= 4: always qualify (you can continue even if you don't finish in the top 3)
 CUSTOM1= 8: always start from pole position
 CUSTOM1=16: enables in-game keys, following keys can be used:
             C - toggle unlimited credits
             T - toggle unlimited time
             Q - toggle "always qualify"
             N - skip level

 The starting level can be selected with CUSTOM2, used a value from 0 to 5.
 Please note that high score saving is disabled if you use any of the trainer
 options! And if you want to be clever and use the built-in cheat (which enables
 unlimited credits) I have some bad news for you. :)

 If you want to have some fun you can disable the timing fix with CUSTOM3=1, the
 game runs at the fastest possible speed then.


 Thanx to:
