 PARTY HAS BEEN POINTED AT SUCH POSSIBILITIES OF DAMAGE.

 This install applies to "Jonathan"  1993 Software 2000.

 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 program requires 1.0 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem.
 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:
 ---------
 - Protection correctly removed (note: if you have the Interpol crack
   don't waste your time trying to complete the game, it is impossible)
 - Saves during gameplay reduced to an absolute minimum (see below)
 - Option to always win the end fight (CUSTOM1=1)
 - Option to restart game after the game over screen (CUSTOM2=1)
 - Documentation and solution included
 - 2 NewIcons, RomIcon and OS3.5 color icon (all created by Irek'72)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Some notes:
 -----------
 The game originally saved lots of files to a temporary location. This
 meant that the game would have insane loading times using the WHDLoad
 patch because of the required OS swaps etc. I changed that so the
 game won't ever save temporary files anymore!

 Furthermore, I had to patch one xpk unpacking routine because the
 xpk.library always returned an error which meant the game could not
 be played. I have tested this patch thoroughly and didn't experience
 any problems, I could successfully complete the game!

 If you see a screen showing some woman on the left and some text
 on the right it means you did something wrong, i.e. it's the 
 game over screen. After this screen the game quits back to DOS,
 you can disable this behaviour with the CUSTOM2 tooltype, if enabled
 the game will restart after the game over screen.
 
 If you can't figure out how to win the final fight you can use
 the "CUSTOM1=1" feature, it allows you to complete the game
 even if you didn't use the correct magic spells etc.

 I have also included required information that is needed to complete
 the game such as telephone numbers, information about the magic spells
 etc, see file "JONDOC". I did type it back in 1993 from my original manual.
 Yes, the dodgy Interpol crack made me buy the original! :)


 Update 18.04.2013:
 ------------------

 I have updated one of my very first WHDLoad patches, it now uses
 WHDLoad v17+ features and it finally fixes the problem with the
 black screen after the game over screen was shown. The game tried
 to delete the files it originally saved to a temporary location, since
 I have patched the game to not save temporary files anylonger this was not
 needed anymore and caused a disk request (which was just not visible due
 to the black screen) which in turn meant that the game would not quit
 back to DOS until the quitkey had been pressed. This annoyed me ever
 since I made the patch almost 5 years ago and it is now finally
 fixed. I have also added an option the restart the game after the
 game over screen as I find it quite annoying that the game quits
 to DOS after this screen.

 Now also lots of nice icons are included, these have all been created
 by Irek'72, thanks a lot!
