Short:    HD-Installer for Brataccas 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 "Brataccas" (c) 1987 Psygnosis - 1 disk.
Thanks to Frank for this fantastic original :)

REQUIREMENTS:
- Slave requires WHDLoad V10+.
- Game requires 512kb chip mem (+0.2Mb other memory for preload option)

FEATURES:
- Full load from HD
- Missing keyboard delay fixed (x2)
- 24 bit access faults fixed (hundreds of them)
- RomIcon and NewIcon (created by me)
- Quit option (default key is '*' on keypad)

KEYS:
- Press Help to go into the game options. I suggest you change the default 
  mouse control to keys immediately :)

This was Psygnosis' first ever Amiga game as far as I know, and when I
saw it on my friend's Amiga for the first time, I was glad I still owned
a C64 :)

You know you're in trouble when the game opens a 2 bitplane hi-res screen
(4 colours) for the title. When almost every single table lookup in the
game (and there are bloody hundreds of them) has some garbage in the high 
byte meaning it causes an access fault. When a platform game is mouse
controlled (by default). When the disk takes about 10 attempts to extract
the correct data per track.

Due to the huge number of table lookups I may have missed a few so if
the game crashes, send me the register file (use the COREDUMP tooltype).
While fixing the access faults I think I have broken the movie mode as
your stupid character just starts jumping around instead of showing you
what you're supposed to do.

And I haven't patched load/save games to HD, I doubt you'll play the game
long enough to want to save your position. If you want this supported, 
send me an explanation why :)

Greetings to all Action members, my testing crew and the WHDLoad team!
