Short: HD-Installer for Spot V1.0
Author: Codetapper/Action (firstname.lastname@example.org), ICQ: 26051687
Uploader: Codetapper/Action (email@example.com)
This patch applies to "Spot" (c) 1990 Virgin/Mastertronic - 1 disk.
Thanks to Chris Vella for sending the original.
- Slave requires WHDLoad V15+ and an installed A1200 Kickstart 3.1 image
- Game requires 512k chip mem and 768k other memory (+690k other memory
for preload option)
- Full load from HD
- Manual included
- RomIcon, NewIcon and OS3.5+ Colour Icon (created by me!)
- Quit option (default key is 'F10')
Please note that the game takes about 12 seconds to load fully, even with
all files preloaded. This is because of some incredibly stupid loading
routines which load a file by reading 1 or 2 bytes at a time!
I would also advise that once the game has loaded, go into the Options
screen and click on the picture of the 7-Up spot to disable animations,
otherwise the game takes forever!
The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts"
and must be named "kick40068.A1200". The image can be extracted from an
A1200 with tools like "GrabKick" or similar which can be found on Aminet.
If the image is the wrong version or altered in any way, WHDLoad will
quit with an appropriate error message.
Additionally the file "kick40068.A1200.RTB" must be installed in the same
directory as the kickstart image. It can be found in the archive
"util/boot/skick343.lha" on Aminet.
Greetings to Chris Vella for the original, Wepl and Jean-François Fabre for
KickEmu, all Action members, my testing crew and the WHDLoad team!
