This install applies to "Neuromancer" © 1988-1989 Interplay
This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path. It can be found in the
The installed program requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 1.0 MB OtherMem.
It can be quit by pressing num '*' (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").
The game requires a installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image.
The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from a A500 with
tools like 'GrabKick' or similar which can be found on aminet.
If the image is of wrong version or altered in any way WHDLoad will quit with
a appropriate requester.
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/skick346.lha" on aminet.
If you have problems with this installation please try and get a newer
version of this package from the WHDLoad WWW-Page. If that doesn't help try
some Tooltypes like NOCACHE, NOAUTOVEC, NOVBRMOVE, NOMMU, PAL or NTSC. If
that also fails, please inform the author via the Bug-Report-Form which
can be accessed on the WHDLoad WWW-Page or create a mantis issue directly
For the full WHDLoad package, other installs and updates refer to:
Version 3.1 (13.01.2021) done by JOTD:
- reduced memory requirements (issue #0004947)
Version 3.0 (21.12.2020) done by JOTD:
- proper sound fix (avoids lockups on very fast machines,
that also explains why it failed on version 1.0 probably)
- proper blitter fix
- reassembled with latest kickemu => 68000 quitkey (issue #0004897)
Version 2.0 (2002)
- does not use KickDOS anymore but direct dos emulation with newest kickemu
with interrupt system fixed: no longer locks, music plays ok.
- Annoying bug fixed: when loading a game from title screen, the game "forgot" to
draw the control panel: the result was a mix between title screen and game.
- lots of self-modifying code fixed
- Also better crack (no need to press RETURN) and rewritten installer script and
major source cleanup (shorter slave)
- Source code included
- Nice icons by Frank
Version 1.0 (2001?)
- first release.
- Sometimes the game locks on title screen. Don't let it happen,
click on "New" or "Load" quickly. Music does not play right too.
- Docfile/walkthrough included
Thanks to Bert Jahn for writing kickemu.s kickstart interface system.
