Yet another Herndon protected game bites the dust! Ben Herndon must have
had a few complaints from people about his copy protection failing on newer
Amigas and so adjusted it slightly. Between the loops of self modifying
code he setup an $800 byte area of nop's which was called to try and knock
out the prefetch and cache problems. I imagine that it still would have
failed on 040/060 Amigas due to the large cache size but it should now work
on all Amigas! To try and be clever he also encrypted the game twice
instead of the usual once!
There are a couple of graphical glitches in the game - the surfer has a
missing line down the middle when facing left and the woman that catches
the frisbee in the flying disk event is not correctly drawn all the time.
You will just have to live with these problems! I believe they are related
to changes in sprites on AGA machines.
You must have a registered version of WHDLoad to play this game!
If you have an unmodified version of this game with a blank high score
table please contact me as I would like to include clean scores in the
