 This install applies to "Leader Board"  1986 Access.

 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 (+0.3 MB for preload)
 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:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - 2 versions supported
 - Protection removed (dongle check)
 - Wrong interrupt check fixed (game doesn't freeze anymore)
 - ButtonWait supported for title picture
 - Source code included as usual
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 This patch was requested back in 2005 already (I wasn't even aware
 of EAB at that time) and since no one did the patch till now I made
 it. Started it back in February last year, quickly removed the dongle
 protection (there were even a few disguised accesses to the $dff00c
 register (used to read the dongle status) which I find pretty neat
 for a game relased in 1986) but then faced some problems with visual
 bugs. I thought these had to do with me patching a wrong check
 of a call to "AddIRCVector" (games uses a system-friendly CIA interrupt)
 which made the game "freeze" because it waited for a flag which was never
 set because the interrupt never occured. However, my interrupt patch
 was completely correct but I only noticed that about 1 year later.

 Spent a few days debugging the game without any success and then more or
 less forgot about it. Until yesterday when I had a look at it again, the
 visual bugs were caused by the game not loading any files for whatever
 reason, it had nothing to do with the interrupt patch. So I patched
 the file loading and hooray, the game worked fine without any problems!

 For a 1986 game this is very good even though I still prefer the C64 version
 as I played it with friends of mine back in the "good old days" (TM). :)

 Anyway, enjoy quite a classic from HD now.
