 This install applies to "Embryo"  1994 Black Legend.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad 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 and 0.5 MB OtherMem. 
 It can be quit by pressing PrtSc (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:
 ---------
 - 2 versions supported (SPS 2265 and German version) 
 - Disk accesses removed
 - Access faults in intro fixed
 - Invalid copperlist entry fixed (uninitialised Cop2 ptr)
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed
 - Interrupts fixed for 040/060 (P60 Player, end sequence)
 - Annoying typo fixed (allmost->almost)
 - Protection removed (Manual check, checksums)
 - Trainers added (Customxx tooltypes, see below)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'PrtSc')


 Here it finally is, the WHDLoad patch for Embryo. Was requested on EAB
 by KillerGorilla back in 2007 and since none of the other WHDLoad patchers
 had time/interest I started to work on this very patch. Most of it was
 done within 3 days, now if you wonder why it took more than 2 years to
 finish this patch, well... There are people in this world who find it
 necessary to boast about their skills instead of providing useful feedback.
 I won't lose too many words about this, most of you will probably know
 who I am referring to anyway. Result was that I completely stopped
 the work on the patch and left EAB for a while because I don't need
 something like that. This is all this person has achieved, due to
 his behaviour I just didn't have any motivation to work on the patch
 anymore so you (the people that requested this patch) had to wait for
 more than 2 years. I wonder if it was worth it...
 Anyway, enough about that.

 There were a few problems with this game, the intro had a lot
 of problems on higher CPU's, it's even mentioned in the readme
 that comes with the game. Fixing these problems wasn't easy but
 I hope I found a good enough solution, it works on my 68060 without
 any problems now. If you should experience crashes then try the
 'NoCache' tooltype, this shouldn't be necessary though I hope.

 The protection screen has been completely removed so you won't ever
 see it. 

 I have added a few trainers, these can be activated with CUSTOMx
 tooltypes, available trainers are:

 CUSTOM1=1: unlimited lives
 CUSTOM2=1: unlimited ammo
 CUSTOM3=1: unlimited energy/no damage
 CUSTOM4=x: start at level x (21: end sequence)
 CUSTOM5=1: In-Game keys, these are:
            w: refill ammo
            n: skip level
 


 Have fun with this game.
