 PARTY HAS BEEN POINTED AT SUCH POSSIBILITIES OF DAMAGE.

 This install applies to "Croak"  1992 Selwyn Stevens.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 It 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
 (+0.4 MB OtherMem for preload and Kickstart ROM)
 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
 - Timing fixed
 - Word write to $bfec00 fixed
 - Keyboard routine fixed
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM1-3, see below)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'Del')

 Really nice Frogger clone which was unplayable on fast machines due
 to the missing sync with the raster beam. This is now fixed so the
 game runs at normal speed and it's possible to enter your name
 in the high score table as well on fast machines.
 Keyboard routine also had to be redone but other than that the code
 is quite OK and the game is highly addictive. :)

 I have, as usual, added some trainers but I recommend to play the
 game without them as the trainers really kill the fun! But it's up
 to you do decide, follwing options are available:

 CUSTOM1=1: enables unlimited lives
 CUSTOM2=1: enables unlimited time
 CUSTOM3=1: enables immortality i.e. your frog won't ever die (BORING!)

 If any of the trainer options are used the high score saving will be
 disabled.

 To save the high scores, quit the game with F10 while the main menu
 is shown. If you want to quit without saving the scores press the
 quitkey (default is 'Del') which will of course work everywhere in
 the game.

 The game can be downloaded from the authors website:
 http://hyperwares.com/downloads/croak.zip

 Enjoy this nice game with correct timing now, it really is a lot of
 fun. :) A patch for Croak 2 will follow in the next days.
