Short:    HD-Installer for Platoon V1.1
Author:   Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com), ICQ: 26051687
Uploader: Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com)
Version:  1.1
Type:     game/patch

This patch applies to "Platoon" (c) 1988 Ocean - 1 disk.
Supported: - NTSC release (Chris Vella and Tony Aksnes)
           - PAL release (Markus Castren)
           - PAL copylocked release (Seppo Seppala)

REQUIREMENTS:
- Slave requires WHDLoad V10+ and RawDIC
- Game requires 512k chip mem (+901k other memory for preload option)

FEATURES: (09-Sep-2003)
- Full load from HD
- Loads and saves high scores
- Blitter waits added (x6)
- Empty DBF loops fixed (x2)
- Trainer added (set CUSTOM1=1 to activate built-in level 1 trainer, keys 1-3
  select the starting level and Help to toggle invulnerability on level 3)
- Hints included
- RomIcon, NewIcon and OS3.5 Colour Icon (created by me!) and 2 Exoticons
  (taken from http://exotica.fix.no)
- Quit option (default key is 'PrtSc')

VERSION 1.1: (17-Sep-2003)
- Supports another copylocked version (thanks to Seppo!)

CHEAT MODE:
- Taken from Sweet Cheater by Keith Krellwitz!
- On the title screen, type "HAMBURGER".  The word {Cheat} will appear
  below the credits.  Press your joystick button to start and then
  during play you can press any of the following keys:

          'F1'________________Starts you where you currently are
          'F2'______________Starts you at location of explosives
          'F3'______Starts you at the bridge you need to blow up
          'F4'_________Starts you at the village (hidden tunnel)
          'F5'________________________________Invulnerability on
          'F6'_______________________________Invulnerability off

  If you also type "-HILL" (where the hyphen is the minus on the keypad)
  after you have typed "HAMBURGER", it will activate a second cheat.
  When the credit screen re-appears the words {MEGA CHEAT} will appear.

  NOTE:  Don't use the shield when going through the trapdoor!


Activate the trainer by adding the tooltype CUSTOM1=1.  When activated, the
built in mega-cheat will be activated when the game begins and I have added
an invulnerability cheat for the final level.  Be aware that you can still
run out of time!

In theory a well cracked version of the game should work with this install
but the only version I tested is the Vision Factory/Beyonders release which
is corrupt.  The stupid cracker put the intro over the final level so the
game crashes.  The install will detect a non supported version and should
quit cleanly.

Greetings to Chris, Markus, Tony and Seppo for the originals, Wepl for
WHDLoad, all Action members and the entire WHDLoad team!
