This install applies to "Dugger" © 1988 Linel.
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.

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.
