NOTES:

I spent a lot of time on Prince Of The Yolkfolk trying to work out just why
the music player never worked properly (basically it kept skipping notes such
as the drums). The player is in fact the same custom format Matthew Simmonds
used for Magicland Dizzy, right down to the way it is hooked into the main game
loop. It turns out this was its failing, as in POTY there is a lot more going
on than there was in Magicland, meaning the player doesn't get called as often
as it needs to be. I fixed this through a bit of reprogramming and now, for the
first time ever, the music works 100% :-)

Otherwise, the rest of the games were fairly easy to patch, so hopefully no
major hiccups to anybody playing these!
