Short:    HD-Installer for The Chronicles of Omega V1.1
Author:   Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com)
Uploader: Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com)
Version:  1.1
Type:     game/patch

This patch applies to "The Chronicles of Omega" (c) 1990 ARC - 1 disk.
Thanks to Chris Vella, Carlo Pirri and Irek Kloska for sending the 
originals!

REQUIREMENTS:
- Slave requires WHDLoad V17+ and an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image
- Game requires 512k chip mem and 256k other memory (+0.9Mb other memory 
  for preload option)

FEATURES: (30-Sep-2003)
- Full load from HD
- Rob Northen Series One Copylock removed
- Blitter waits added (x14)
- Colour bit fixed
- Trainer added (set CUSTOM1=1 for infinite lives and energy)
- Added 2 second delay for the title picture (press fire to skip it)
- Supports BUTTONWAIT tooltype for the title picture
- RomIcon, NewIcon and OS3.5 Colour Icon (created by me!) 
- Quit option (default key is 'F10')

VERSION 1.1: (26/02/2014)
- Cheat mode now also gives infinite money
- Fixed install script to skip copylock track (thanks to Irek Kloska for
  reporting the problem with his original)
- Source code included
- Reassembled for WHDLoad 17
- No longer requires a registered WHDLoad

This game will only work with an original disk image. I checked out the
Endless Piracy crack but it looks like the "cracker" has frozen the game 
with a cartridge and used TetraPack to decrunch the game back into
position. Everything including all zeropage vectors onwards has been saved 
which means it is basically impossible to support in WHDLoad! The only 
good thing about the cracked version was the trainer so thanks to Marc
for that!

This game was a pig to install due to the copy protection - I'm glad Rob
Northen changed to the much simpler version as these ones are a nightmare
to crack without having the original disk in your possession!

The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts"
and must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from an
A500 with tools like "GrabKick" or similar which can be found on Aminet.
If the image is the wrong version or altered in any way, WHDLoad will
quit with an appropriate error message. 

Additionally the file "kick34005.A500.RTB" must be installed in the same
directory as the kickstart image. It can be found in the archive 
"util/boot/skick343.lha" on Aminet.

Greetings to Chris and Carlo for the originals, Mad-Matt for testing, Mr
Larmer for his great copylock decoder, Wepl for WHDLoad and all Action
members!
