Started the patch for this game back in January already and had almost
everything finished after 2 days. Then I forgot about the patch until
some days before Revision and once I came back from Revision I finally
completed the patch.
Game had quite a few problems even though the code isn't that bad.
However, there were 24-bit problems to fix, all the interrupt handling
had to be rewritten as originally the code worked on 68000 only, an access
fault had to be fixed (caused by clearing too many longs and accessing
memory outside the 512k boundary) and quite a few blitter waits had
to be added. The blitter wait patches are only applied on 68010+ machines,
to force them on 68000 machines use CUSTOM1=1.
Load/Save is fully supported, since the game only allows 1 save game
I have patched the load/save routines to work with a real file
("ManchesterUnited.save") instead of using a save disk.
Supported are two versions, the original Krisalis release (SPS 1693)
and the GBH budget version (SPS 1897) which is exactly the same game
with the protection disabled.
Enjoy this nice football game from HD, it's still very enjoyable
almost 25 years after its release.
