 This install applies to "Magic Pockets"  1991 Renegade.

 This install requires WHDLoad and DIC to be in the path. Both can be found in
 the WHDLoad package.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed program requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem.
 It can be quit by pressing num '*' (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 If you have problems with this installation please try and get a newer
 version of this package from the WHDLoad WWW-Page. If that doesn't help try
 some Tooltypes like NOCACHE, NOAUTOVEC, NOVBRMOVE, NOMMU, PAL or NTSC. If
 that also fails, please inform the author via the Bug-Report-Form which
 can be accessed on the WHDLoad WWW-Page.

 version 2.2 (09.05.2014) done by JOTD:
 - reworked installed script (hoping to fix issue #2996)
 - added 'S' trainer key to get gold coin / gold star and increase number
   of silver stars (same as 'T' but you get other weapons than teleport)
   (too many presses => buggy/trashed gfx bonus)
 - source code included

 version 2.1 (12.11.2001) done by JOTD:
 - 3 versions are supported: 11/09/91,18/09/91, and US 1992 version (NTSC)
 - Works with caches for amazing speed
 - RNC Decrunch routine relocated to fastmem
 - Password protection removed for US version (thanks Keith)
 - Copylock protection removed for UK versions (thanks Galahad)
 - Use 'T' key to get gold coin / gold star (and reach the secret warp everytime !)
 - Docs/walkthrough/level codes for US version provided
 - Nice icons by Frank/Exoticons

NOTES:

- This game needed NOVBRMOVE because I could not fix the copylock. I was almost
  there, but it still crashed at some point. I asked help to Codetapper who
  went very close, but could not do it either. Finally Galahad gave the final
  blow to the protection, one of the toughest copylocks ever IHMO.

- Install should work with cracked versions, but it is not guaranteed.

- I asked for Bitmap Bros if they could give the game for free (i.e. allow
  the game to be put on legal sites) but they refused. Too bad.

KEYS:

For the US version:

F1   : pause
F2   : enter level code
F10  : return to level 1
ESC  : quit

HELP : levelskip (kill at least 1 monster to get the levelcode)
T    : next token is a coin, 1 silver star owned
S    : next token is a coin, silver star owned++

Don't forget to set the tooltype to NTSC if you run the game from a PAL machine or
the music will be jerky.


For the Europe version

P    : pause
Q    : return to level 1
ESC  : quit

HELP : levelskip (kill at least 1 monster to get the levelcode)
T    : next token is a coin, 1 silver star owned
S    : next token is a coin, silver star owned++

A walkthrough is provided. It explains the tricks to reach secret rooms and more.
It has been greatly enhanced by dELTA tX and recently by me
