 This install applies to "Dugger"  1988 Linel.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and RawDIC 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 (+0.5 MB for Preload). 
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (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
 - Illegal custom register accesses fixed (x3)
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed
 - loads and saves high scores
 - Protection removed (hard work!, obfuscated code, MFM)
 - Keyboard routine fixed
 - Interrupts fixed for 68040/68060
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Here it finally is, the patch for Linel's Dugger, it was requested by
 Haynor quite a while ago. Reason that it took so long is the protection
 of this game. The bootcode is incredibly obfuscated thus it is not easy
 to follow. I had to fully understand it to be able to create the
 RawDIC imager. That was more hard work as the disk format is quite
 complex! Each track has different tracklengths for each sector and lots
 of different SYNC's are used as well. Creating the imager was not easy
 but it was fun as I didn't have to deal with obfuscated code anymore.
 Once that was finished the rest was no problem anymore, patching the
 game was quite easy as the code is quite clean.

 If you wonder why the protection is so good, it's simple: the game was
 coded by a certain SCA member who was responsible for the very first
 Amiga bootblock virus. Should explain a few things I guess.

 Since the game is quite easy I have deliberately not added any trainers
 as that would completely spoil fun in my opion.


 Sorry especially to Haynor that it took so long but it really was
 quite a bit of work! I hope you appreciate it.

 Now you can finally enjoy this game from HD.

 Happy New Year,
