Short:    HD-Installer for Major Motion V1.0
Author:   Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com), ICQ: 26051687
Uploader: Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com)
Version:  1.0
Type:     game/patch

This patch applies to "Major Motion" (c) 1988 Microdeal - 1 disk.
Thanks to Carlo Pirri and Drake for the original!

- Slave requires WHDLoad V13+ and an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image.
- Game requires 512k chip mem and 320k other memory (+0.3Mb other memory 
  for preload option)

- Full load from HD
- Loads and saves high scores (unless you cheat)
- Keyboard routine recoded
- Empty DBF loops fixed
- Trainer (press Help to toggle the cheat mode rather than having to type
  the code below)
- RomIcon, NewIcon and GlowIcon (created by Frank!)
- Quit option (default key is 'PrtSc' on numeric keypad)

- Taken from Sweet Cheater by Keith Krellwitz!
- During play, type "  TURBO  TIMOTHY  PURVES" (two spaces before TURBO
  and two spaces in between the words).  Now use the following keys:

        'F5'____________________Adds weapons to your arsenal.
        'F6'__________________________________Infinite lives.
        'F7'_____Cars with bladed wheels can't knock you off.
        'F8'______________Invincible to the heli's droppings.
        'F9'___________________________Invincible to the jet.
        'F10'_______________________________Restart music on.

If you cheat, the high scores will not be saved.

There is a bug in the original whereby if you start a game with the cheat
mode on, the screen turns blue when you hit fire and gets stuck.  This will
also occur if you play a game, turn the cheat on and then die.  The cheat
will still be activated so when you hit fire, it locks up.  As a
workaround, when the high score table appears, the cheat mode is now
disabled so you should only ever encounter this bug if you use the built in
game abort (F1 pressed twice which skips the high score screen) or if you
press Help while on the title screen and then hit fire.  I have wasted
enough time trying to fix this 100% and have given up :)

The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts"
and must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from an
A500 with tools like "GrabKick" or similar which can be found on Aminet.
If the image is the wrong version or altered in any way, WHDLoad will
quit with an appropriate error 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/skick343.lha" on Aminet.

Greetings to Wepl and Jean-François Fabre for the superb Kickstart 1.3
plugin and Dos support, Chris, Carlo, Frank, all Action members, my testing
crew and the entire WHDLoad team!
