 This install applies to "Monster Business"  1991 Eclipse.

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

 The installed game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+0.4 MB for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD (real files!)
 - Protection removed (MFM, protection track check, key check)
 - System-friendly RawDIC imager
 - Self-modifying code in game and Synth Dream replayer fixed
 - Bug in Synth Dream replayer fixed, thanks to Don Adan for reporting
 - Access fault fixed
 - Blitter waits added (x6)
 - Bplcon0 color bit fix
 - Wrong branch fixed
 - High score load/save (only if no trainers are used)
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM 1, see below)
 - Starting level can be selected with CUSTOM2
 - Interrupts fixed
 - Supports SPS 3032 version
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 This is another of the patches that really needed an update. In the
 old patch (which was done 15 years ago) the original loader was used
 to save the files which isn't really nice of course so the first thing
 I did was to code a proper RawDIC imager. Due to this you will have to
 reinstall the game!

 There also were some graphics problems caused by missing blitter waits
 which I have fixed as well. Additionally I have fixed the self-modifying
 code used in the game and replayer and also added 68000 quitkey support.
 I have also added some trainer options, these can be enabled with the
 CUSTOM1 tooltype, available options are:

 CUSTOM1= 1: enables unlimited lives
 CUSTOM1= 2: enables unlimited time
 CUSTOM1= 4: enables unlimited credits
 CUSTOM1= 8: enables invincibility
 CUSTOM1=16: enabled in-game keys, these are:
             L - toggle unlimited lives
             T - toggle unlimited time
             C - toggle unlimited credits
             I - toggle invincibility
             N - skip level


 The starting level can be selected with CUSTOM2, valid level numbers are
 0-44.

 If any of the trainer options is used high score saving is disabled.



 Have fun and enjoy this nice little game from HD.
