 This install applies to "Nicky Boom" © 1992 Microids.

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

 The installed game requires 512k ChipMem (+880k for Preload). 
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (manual check, checksums, see below)
 - Byte write to AudXVol in replayer fixed
 - Decrunchers (ByteKiller/Ice!) relocated to fast memory
 - High scores are saved to a separate file if trainer is not used
 - Keyboard delay increased
 - Trainer added (CUSTOM1=1, see below)
 - ROMIcon and NewIcon (all created by Frank)
 - All sources included
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 Here's the new and shiny patch for Nicky Boom. It was reported on EAB
 that the old patch by Mick didn't work correctly on 68000 machines
 so I had a look at fixing it. First I just wanted to update Mick's
 slave source but once I saw how the game was patched I decided to
 completely redo the patch from scratch because the old patch wasn't
 very good (sorry Mick!).

 It wasn't much work anyway because the game code is quite good.
 The game had a manual protection which I have completely disabled in
 this patch, i.e. you won't ever see it! The protection is quite funny
 in this game, there are checksum checks but these aren't very effective
 and were quite easy to spot. Even funnier is that there is code left in
 the game to save all checksums to disk, obviously built-in by the coder
 and then forgotten to remove. Why even have checksum checks then? Somehow
 it reminds me of the classic example of protecting a car against theft
 with an expensive car alarm but forgetting to lock the doors.
 There also was a check for the correct bootblock checksum which was quite
 funny too because it was so obvious that it could've been completely
 left out.

 You can enable the built-in trainer plus some additional trainers with
 the CUSTOM1=1 tooltype. You will then have:

 - unlimited lives
 - in-game keys, these are:
   F1: get shield
   F2: get 10 bombs
   F3: get 10 megabombs
   F4: get 10 keys
  DEL: skip level

 Additionally I have added unlimited bombs, megabombs and keys. 
 Please note that the high scores will not be saved if you enable
 the trainers!

 The level passwords are:
   2. MEDIT
   3. KRATTY
   4. MIRTES
   5. ARRAX
   6. JANIR
   7. TRINOS
   8. SIXAN



 Enjoy this cute platformer from HD.
