V1.6 (23-Apr-2024) by DJ Mike:
- slowdown/missing scoreboard bug fixed (Mantis issue #4981)
- 2-button/CD32 pad jump support added
- reduced memory required to only 512kb chip

Pause the game and slowly type DIAMONDS AND PEARLS for infinite lives.

Notes for V1.6 (DJ Mike)
The game's engine is nearly identical to Prince of the Yolkfolk (not surprising,
since both were coded by Del), so it was very straightforward to lift the joypad
support from one to the other.

The slowdown bug was due to a missing memory clear, which it turns out is needed
otherwise the game's state starts corrupted. It would also cause a missing
scoreboard if NOVBRMOVE was set. It might be there's a debug flag somewhere to
skip frames, but I haven't drilled down to look for specifics.

I've also dropped the memory needed to 512kb chip, as the extra was only ever
used for caching disk loads. If you're using PRELOAD then WHDLoad is already
doing that for you, and if not then you'd probably rather save the memory!

Notes for V1.5 (StingRay)
I (StingRay) have updated this patch, the crash during the title part
has been fixed and the hidden credits part is now supported too. Additionally
I have fixed the interrupts, corrected the BPLCON2 fixes, added keyboard
interrupts and 68000 quitkey support and added a few more trainer options.
Available trainer options are:

CUSTOM1=1: enables unlimited lives
CUSTOM1=2: enables unlimited energy
CUSTOM1=4: enable in-game keys, these are:
	   L - toggle unlimited lives
	   E - toggle unlimited energy
	   F - refill energy

Since I have updated the patch to use WHDLoad v17+ features all trainer
options can be selected in WHDLoad's splash window.

You can also enable the hidden credits part with CUSTOM2. It can still be
activated by pressing DEL (Del/Anarchy is the coder of the game!) during
the title screen as well.
