A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR:

I'm DJ Mike, otherwise known as Michael Griffin. Having been a long-time
fan of the Amiga, and a great fan of all these WHDLoad installs being
created, I wanted to try doing some coding for myself. Of course, going
from having little knowledge of Amiga assembly to enough knowledge to
patch any kind of game takes a very long time. So hopefully you'll see
my progress reflected in the installs I created with time!

It turns out that while this was my first coded install, it has become
my third release ;-) "Galaxy Blast" and "Rat Trap" (my 2nd and 3rd
installs) made it out before this one - ah well!

Many thanks to CodeTapper, who has been kind enough to lend his time in
tutoring me on aspects of WHDLoad patching :-)

Since I've become very serious about patching, I'm upgrading my A1200
with a Blizzard 1230/50 accelerator and 32MB of memory, since future
installs will need me to check for any MMU-related problems. This time
around, thanks must go to CodeTapper for alerting me to several access
faults in Magnatron's main game code. Stupid access faults moreover 
(removing them did sod all to the game, as far as I can tell anyway).

Comments are appreciated, as are bug reports - I'll never learn unless
I'm told! As time goes by you'll be seeing more installs from me :-)

Greetings to Wepl and the rest of the WHDLoad team - great work, guys!
