 PERFORMANCE OF THE PACKAGE IS ASSUMED BY YOU AND IF THE PACKAGE SHOULD PROVE
 TO BE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,

 CAUSED IN ANY USUAL, SPECIAL, OR ACCIDENTAL WAY, ALSO IF THE OWNER OR A THIRD
 PARTY HAS BEEN POINTED AT SUCH POSSIBILITIES OF DAMAGE.

 This install applies to "Lords of Doom"  1990/91 Starbyte.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and DIC 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 and 0.5 MB OtherMem
 (+1.7 MB for preload and Kickstart ROM).
 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
 - Protection removed (manual check)
 - DMA wait in sample player fixed (x2)
 - Keyboard routine fixed
 - Blitter waits added (x10)
 - Self-modifying code fixed
 - Access fault fixed
 - Load/Save supported
 - Supports 3 versions (2 German versions, 1 English version)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 A patch for this game was requested about half a year ago and here
 it finally is. Code is quite OK but there were a few problems to
 fix such as a wrong hardware register access in the intro ($dfef8c
 instead of $dff074) and some other minor things.

 The game uses a custom formatted disk for its save games, this
 is fully supported in this patch. During installation you will be
 asked if you want to install a save disk, use this to install your
 already existing save game disk.

 It is recommended to use the "Create data disk" option in the game
 before saving for the first time, this will create an empty
 save disk. You can also use this option to erase an existing
 save disk. It is possible to save a game without creating a save disk
 first but if you try to load a non-existent save game WHDLoad will
 quit with a "Seek error" which I deliberately did not patch!


 Enjoy the game from HD.
