Here's the WHDLoad patch for Kick Off 3 European Challenge.
I did it back in April 2009 after I made the patch for Kick Off 2.
Not much to say about it, compared to Kick Off 2 the game
is rather disappointing in my opinion. But enjoy the patch
The patch for the ECS version needs 1MB Chip mem because of the simple
fact that the Anco coders were unable to code a simple relocation routine,
they just included two versions (one for 1MB chip mem, one for
512k Chip/512k at $c00000). Why they did it like this is beyond me and
I better don't comment it.
The patch for the ECS version supports the SPS 170 version and the
Rednex crack (which is not 100%, see source for more information.)
The AGA patch supports the SPS 1896 version and the Rednex crack.
Load/Save from data/edit disk is supported, if you already
have a data or edit disk you can create images of them
using tools like DIC (can be found in the WHDLoad package)
and copy them to the installation directory, for the ECS
version data disk needs to be renamed to "disk.3", the edit
disk is "disk.4", for the AGA version the data disk needs
to be remamed to "disk.4" and the edit disk is "disk.5"
If no data/edit disk is found it will be created, this feature
can be disabled with the CUSTOM1=1 tooltype.
Have fun with this game from HD now.
