 IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO USE, RESULTS AND
 PERFORMANCE OF THE PACKAGE IS ASSUMED BY YOU AND IF THE PACKAGE SHOULD PROVE

 CAUSED IN ANY USUAL, SPECIAL, OR ACCIDENTAL WAY, ALSO IF THE OWNER OR A THIRD
 PARTY HAS BEEN POINTED AT SUCH POSSIBILITIES OF DAMAGE.

 This install applies to "Crime Does Not Pay"  1991 Titus.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 These programs 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 and 0.5 MB OtherMem(+1.0 MB for preload)
 It can be quit by pressing Del (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 The game requires an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image.
 The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
 must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from a A500 with
 tools like 'GrabKick' or similar which can be found on aminet.
 If the image is of wrong version or altered in any way WHDLoad will quit with
 an appropriate 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/skick346.lha" on aminet.


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (protection track check)
 - RomIcon, 3 NewIcons and 3 OS 3.5 color icons (all created by Irek'72)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'Del')

 This patch was requested by Irek on EAB yesterday. He also provided lots
 of cool icons for the install!
 Patching the game wasn't hard, protection was a track check which was
 performed in an external file which stored the result in $8.w. Not really
 the way to go for system-friendly code but since it has been disabled
 it doesn't matter anymore. The main game checked the result and jumped
 to an odd address that also didn't contain any code if the check failed.
 Nothing special at all but at least no direct compare was used so I had
 a few minutes of fun (few translates to about 3).

 The game had insane loading times from floppy because it copied lots of
 files to RAM and later, during the game, the same files were copied
 to RAM: again... No further comments needed. I have disabled this
 behaviour in this patch of course.

 Not much more to say, for me this game is yet another example that Amiga
 games shouldn't be coded in a high-level language.


 Enjoy the game from HD now anyway. Special thanks to Irek for the
 cool icons!
