Here's the new and shiny patch for Sierra Soccer which was requested by quite
a few people. The old one wasn't very good (sorry Jeff!), it
had several problems. Major problem was that the protection wasn't removed
correctly, the checksum check wasn't removed thus the game crashed after
some time! This is now fixed, I have completely removed the manual protection
screen and the checksum check has been obliterated too of course!
The other problem was the music which played way too fast. This was an interrupt
problem, the game triggered a copper interrupt in the copperlists, due to this
the normal vblank interrupt was never acknowledged thus the music played way
The intro wasn't supported in the old patch either, now it is! If you want to
boot straight into the game you can use the Custom1=1 toolytpe, the intro will
be skipped then.
I have also patched all OS calls so this patch works without a Kickstart Rom!
If you want to load or save just click on any of the drive buttons (df0: - df3:)
they will all work, the data will of course be saved to your HD.
Except for the mentioned problems the game is quite well coded and one of the
better football games out there. Enjoy it from HD now.
