The game requires an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image.

Here's yet another patch for quite a classic game. Started it last Friday
and today I finished everything while listening to the new In Strict Confidence
album which made coding so much more enjoyable. :)
Except for removing the manual protection there wasn't much to do but a few
things had to be patched anyway. The game used icon.library to save the icons
for the save games but the library is not included on all disks of the game
so I have disabled the icon creation which isn't needed anyway in my opinion.
The Hires versions also opened diskfont.library for a reason I fail to understand
as it isn't used anywhere in the game. If that library couldn't be opened the
game would quit with an error, I have disabled this "feature" too!
Protection was a joke and has been completely disabled in about 10 seconds.
Supported are three versions of the game, these are:
English (SPS 1066), French (SPS 2645) and German (no SPS version available yet)
LoRes and HiRes versions are of course all supported!
If you have a fast machine and a flicker fixer I recommend to play the
Enjoy the game from HD.
