 This install applies to "Robbeary"  1988 Anco.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad 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 (+0.8 MB OtherMem for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (lots of disk checks, encryption)
 - OS stuff patched (file loading)
 - Blitter waits added (x4)
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM1-3, see below)
 - High score load/save (no high score saving if trainers are used)
 - Power LED flashing disabled (can be re-enabled with CUSTOM4)
 - Read from $dff084 fixed
 - Supports SPS 2946 version
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Another request and another quickly made patch. Game code is quite
 ugly but, especially considered its age, remarkably clean, not
 much had to be fixed. Worth mentioning is that the code runs completely
 in copper interrupts, game uses the stop instruction and only runs
 an endless loop outside the interrupts.

 The executables were all encrypted but coding the decrypter was done
 in a few minutes. There also were a lot of disk checks but these were
 no problem either. Specially the protection checks in the game made
 me giggle more than once, there is code to check if the protection
 check code has been tampered with but that code is completely useless
 as the game sets a flag once the protection track check has been passed
 so it was enough to just set this flag to circumvent all checks. The
 coder clearly had no real clue about implementing a proper protection
 check but he tried hard. :P

 I have also added some trainers as the game is not too easy, following
 options are available:

 CUSTOM1=1: enables unlimited lives
 CUSTOM2=1: enables unlimited time
 CUSTOM3=1: enables invincibility

 If any trainer option is used the high score saving will be disabled!

 The game originally flashed the Power LED during the interrupts, I
 have disabled this behaviour. You can turn this feature back on
 with CUSTOM4=1.

 It might happen that the keyboard doesn't always work, so far I didn't
 find the reason for this. Should this be the case (which means you
 can't quit the game) press right and left mouse button together to
 quit the game, this will always work. Should I find the reason for
 the keyboard problems I'll update the patch.

 Thanks to Christian Bartsch for extremely fast sending of a working
 image so I could make this patch.

 Enjoy this old but nice platformer from HD.
