 This install applies to "Legend of the Lost"  1990 Impressions.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 This program 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 (+0.8 MB for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Wrong CIA accesses ($bfe0ff, $bfe2ff) fixed
 - All OS stuff patched
 - Interrupts fixed
 - CPU dependent timing fixed
 - Unnecessary delays (after loading, before initialising interrupts) removed
 - Decruncher (ByteKiller) relocated to fast memory
 - Intros can be skipped with CUSTOM1
 - Unlimited lives trainer added (CUSTOM2)
 - Starting level can be selected with CUSTOM3
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 I don't really know why I even bothered but anyway, here's the patch
 for this rather average game. It's more or less a collection of mini
 games, the idea isn't that bad but execution could have been much better.
 It's fun for a few minutes though. The code had a few problems, CIA access
 was wrong and needed to be fixed,  empty dbf loops were used for timing and
 there also were quite some unnecessary delays after loading a file and before
 initialising interrupts. I have removed these delays so the game starts much
 faster now! I have also patched all OS stuff so this patch does not need a
 Kickstart ROM.
 I have also added an option to skip the long intros, you can enable it with
 CUSTOM1=1. Even if you skip the intros the language selection screen will
 still be displayed!
 I have also added some trainers, CUSTOM2=1 enables unlimited lives and with
 CUSTOM3 you can select the starting level.
 The game uses ByteKiller crunched data files, I have relocated the
 decruncher to fast memory and also added an error check, if decrunching
 fails WHDLoad will quit with an appropriate error message.


 Not much more to say, enjoy the game from HD.
