Title......: HD-Installer for Cannon Fodder (disk version)
Type.......: Hard drive patch (WHDLoad)
Author.....: Galahad of Fairlight (phillbb@ic24.net)

This patch applies to Cannon Fodder, 1993 Sensible Software
3 Disk version, original release

Slave requires WHDLOAD V10+.
Game requires 1.1 MB Chip Mem (+ 2.7 other memory for preload option)

- Full load from Hard drive (Installed as REAL files)
- Lame-o-Protect removed (SOS MFM) (SOS = Sensible Operating System)
- Load/Save games to Hard drive (180 seperate saves allowed!)
- IFF decode routine rewritten and relocated to fast ram
- RNC Data depack routine relocated to fast ram
- 2x Bus errors removed
- All CACR code removed
- Some files removed that are not needed to save disk space
- Quit option is 'Del'

Thanks to Slinka & YoYo for disk images.

Took a little while to complete as I wanted to be sure there were no more
bugs in the game.

Tested on A4ooo o3o and A12oo o6o Tower.

All the Copylock files were fakes.  There are four in memory, but they all
force the serial key regardless of what disk is in the drive.  I only ever
detected 1 Copylock ever being accessed, but better to be safe, I have
removed them all, just in case using the load/save bypasses one of them.

The MFM protection was the usual Sensible Software disk system, very
similar to some Millenium games, and very very similar to the disk system
employed by SFX (Robocop 2, Navy Seals, Hudson Hawk etc, etc)

I believe I have found all the access faults, if anyone has any problems,
just get in contact and I will have a look.

All the files are installed into a seperate 'cf_data' directory as there
are over 280 files!

For the nosey only.  

If you want to, you can also edit all of the ingame graphics, anything with
a .lbm extension is an IFF file.  Note that any file that uses 16 colours
will reload some of the graphics using the copper chip, so whilst you can
change the colours of some graphics, the Cannon Fodder program will still
force some colours to stay the same.

Unpack the VIRGPRES.RAW file (RNC), and load it through an iffconverter
that can handle raw images.

Width     = 320
Height    = 256
Bitplanes = 5     To reveal some secret messages!!!

Also, when you complete the game and you are presented with the end screen,
take the FIRST letter of each word, and it spells out a rather well known
phrase :)

Enjoy this great game, which is so much improved off Hard Drive.
