This install applies to "Die Drachen von Laas" © 1991 Attic.
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
(+0.8 MB 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.
- Full load from HD
- Interrupts fixed
- Cache problems fixed
- Intro can be skipped with CUSTOM1
- In-game quit patched to quit back to DOS
- NewIcon (created by me)
- Source code included as usual
- Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'Del')
Another requested patch which I decided to release now.
There wasn't much to do anyway as the code is quite OK, I only
had to fool the game into believing it runs from HD and some minor
problems had to be fixed, code was copied around and then executed,
this didn't work on any CPU's with cache enabled.
The Attic intro can be skipped with the CUSTOM1 tooltype.
I have also patched the in-game quit to really quit back to DOS,
originally the game would just print a text asking you to reset
I suppose there will be a manual check later in the game but I
am not sure about that. Should you encounter one, save the game
before the protection appears and send me the save game.
Enjoy the game from HD.
