Short:    HD-Installer for Joe Blade 2 V1.0
Author:   Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com), ICQ: 26051687
Uploader: Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com)
Version:  1.0
Type:     game/patch

This patch applies to "Joe Blade 2" (c) 1988 Players Software - 1 disk.
Thanks to Christophe Lennard, Christian Sauer and Tony Aksnes for sending 
the originals!

REQUIREMENTS:
- Slave requires WHDLoad V10+ and RawDIC
- Game requires 0.5Mb chip mem (+0.4Mb other memory for preload option)

FEATURES:
- Full load from HD
- Empty DBF loops fixed (x2)
- Instructions included
- Snoop bug fixed
- All required keypresses can be bypassed by pressing the joystick fire 
  button so CD≥≤ owners can play (greetings Riempie!)
- On the title screen: - Up and fire to view the plot
                       - Down and fire to view the credits
                       - Fire to start the game
- Superb RomIcon, NewIcon and OS3.5 Colour Icon (created by Frank!), a nice
  box icon (by Christian) and 2 Exoticons (from http://exotica.fix.no/)
- Quit option (default key is 'F10')

The loader in this game was incredibly badly written!  It accessed a
hardware register using the wrong value and would get stuck on track 14
most of the time.  If it happened to read sector 1 off the track, it would
continue to load, but otherwise it would just sit in a loop reloading that
track over and over.  There is also no checksum information on the disk, so
I have programmed the imager to read the track until the checksum it
expects appears.  If you have a slightly knackered original, it may take a
lot of retries to read the data so the retry count is set to 25.  Please be
patient and if your disk doesn't seem to work, contact me and I will send a
working disk image to you.

Because the original may not be read reliably, this patch also supports the
common warez compact disk featuring Joe Blade 2, Hellfire and the Twilight
Zone demo.

Thanks to Christophe, Christian and Tony for the originals, Tony again for
testing the imager so many times, Frank for the great icons (and doing them
so quickly!), Christian for his icon and testing, Captain^HIT for icon
conversion and to all Action members and the WHDLoad team!
