This is one of the most badly coded games I have ever seen!  The programmer
has used $df0000 all through the game for the Amiga hardware registers
which means it is a miracle that the game ever worked!  The keyboard
routine was also badly coded.  To add insult to injury, no blitter waits
existed!  Take a bow Gary Antcliffe!

The imager for this game is one of the most tricky I have made.  The game
loads data a track at a time and uses self modifying code to decode the
run-length encoded data across the track boundaries!  I have had to
allocate an extra 256k in the imager, decrypt the file to the buffer and
save the files from there!  If there are any other Hi-Tec games with this
format, contact me for the source!  :)

Since the high score table is never displayed, I haven't bothered to save
the highest score.

I have removed support for the N.O.M.A.D cracked version because there are
multiple variants of the crack with different disk labels, and most of them
have a corrupt SCOOPEX_02 file.  The original is easy enough to get these
days anyway!  :)

You can set the tooltype CUSTOM1=1 to automatically start the game with
infinite lives and time. If you wish to disable the blitter wait patches, 
set the tooltype CUSTOM2=1.

Greetings to Christian for supplying the original game, testing and the
great icon, Chris Vella for the compilation version as well as the other
icons, all Action members and the WHDLoad team!
