 This install applies to "Wonderland"  1991 Magnetic Scrolls.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 This program 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 and 0.5 MB OtherMem.
 (+2.4 MB for preload and Kickstart ROM)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 The game requires an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image.
 The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
 must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from a A500 with
 tools like 'GrabKick' or similar which can be found on aminet.
 If the image is of wrong version or altered in any way WHDLoad will quit with
 an appropriate message.
 Additionally the file "kick34005.A500.RTB" must be installed in the same
 directory as the kickstart image. It can be found in the archive
 "util/boot/skick346.lha" on aminet.



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (manual check)
 - DMA waits in replayer fixed (x2)
 - Game mode can be selected with CUSTOM1 (see below)
 - Solution included
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 The patch for this great game by Magnetic Scrolls was requested by
 Alkis on EAB back in October last year and here it is now.
 The game, while featuring very good code, uses a rather strange approach
 for the hd installation, the path to the installed game is stored in
 some text files which the game then reads to find its files.
 I first tried to find a way around this but in the end I just fooled
 the game into believing it runs from disk which works fine.
 I have successfully completed the game and there were no problems.
 After some time of playing a manual protection appeared which I have
 completely disabled so you won't ever see it.

 The game offers 4 different screen modes, these can be selected with
 the CUSTOM1 tooltype. Available modes are:

 Low resolution, 16 colors (default)       (CUSTOM1=0)
 Medium resolution, 4 colors               (CUSTOM1=1)
 High resolution, interlaced, 16 colors    (CUSTOM1=2)
 High resolution, 2 colors (no graphics)   (CUSTOM1=3)


 If your machine is fast enough and you have a flicker fixed installed
 I'd recommend using the high res interlaced 16 color mode as there
 is enough room for the graphics and text windows then.

 The game also has an option to decompress the graphics during
 installation, I have tried to support this too but it doesn't work
 correctly yet for a reason I have yet to find out. I'll add this feature
 in a later update of this patch. 

 Enough words, enjoy this great classic text adventure, it features
 some very nice graphics and not too easy to solve riddles!
