 This install applies to "Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters"  1990 Tengen.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and DIC to be in the path.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+0.9 MB OtherMem for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - 3 versions supported
 - Protection removed (Copylock)
 - Interrupts fixed
 - Stack frame errors fixed
 - Blitter waits added (x53, 68010+ only)
 - Illegal Bplcon2 settings fixed
 - Decruncher (ByteKiller) relocated to fast memory and error check added
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM1, see below)
 - High-score load/save (disabled if any trainers are used)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Well, it's the end of the year and finally this patch has been redone too.
 Started the work back at the beginning of the year already, had most of it
 finished within a day and then had other things to do as usual.  

 However, I really wanted to get this out in 2015 so I spent a few hours
 yesterday and today to finish everything. The patch now works on 68000
 machines (which was main reason to redo it!).

 The game code is quite good but the low-level code (which is used in many
 Krisalis and Tengen games) only works on 68000 machines due to bad interrupt
 code. I have fixed this of course and recoded all the interrupt routines.
 I have also added quite a few trainer options, if in-game keys are enabled,
 the following extra keys can be used:

  L - toggle unlimited lives
  B - toggle unlimited bombs
  E - toggle unlimited energy
  N - skip level
  G - full gun power


 If you use any trainer options the high score saving will be disabled! I
 recommend playing the game without trainers anyway, it's hard but a lot
 of fun. Using trainers spoils the fun quite a bit but you can decide for
 yourself.

 A lot of blitter waits had to be added too, these are only installed
 on 68010+ machines!

 Bored's old patch supported 4 versions, since I only have 3 versions of
 this game at my disposal the current patch only supports these 3 versions
 (SPS 477, SPS 2871 and another one), if you have an unsupported version
 just contact me.

 That about wraps it up, enjoy this great game from HD and have a happy new
 year!
