Install-Script & HD-loader  2001-2003 JOTD

Zak Mc Kracken is  1989 Lucasfilm

History:

 version 1.2 (01.06.03)
 - protection caused strange behaviour on drawing sections: all drawing
   passed, which is not very good. Changed, now CUSTOM1=1 allows to cheat,
   else, the correct drawing will be checked.
 - CTRL-C quit key caused access faults: fixed, now just quits.
 - rewritten install package from scratch (but there's no need to reinstall
   in order to upgrade)
 - rewritten slave from newest kick13.s sources, using real dos.library

 version 1.1 (2002)
 - protection REALLY removed, for all versions (tested with
  UK and german version).
 - Mouse move speedup.

 version 1.0 (2001) done by JOTD:
 - initial release
 - Runs now properly from HD using WHDLoad/KickEmu/KickDOS
 - Access fault removed
 - Manual protection removed
 - Full use of fast memory
 - Gamesaves without OS swaps
 - Quit key (F10, or configurable with QUITKEY) anytime
 - Convenient install script
 - Normal/NewIcon/GlowIcon/Exoticon icons provided
 - Docfile and walkthrough included


Notes:

- Game worked almost OK in DOS mode but some gfx may be corrupt depending on your system
  and there were no quit key
- Game worked almost OK using OSEmu but a bug in some gfx lib emulation routine fucked up
  the scrolling to the left (!). Using original graphics library through KickEmu works.

Requirements:

 The game requires a 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
 a appropriate requester.
 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/skick345.lha" on aminet.

Thanks to Bert Jahn for writing kickemu.s kickstart interface system.
