V1.1 Notes (StingRay):
Another old Mr.Larmer patch is now updated, major improvement is the
load/save support. I have also disabled all checksum checks, Mr.Larmer
missed quite a few checksums in his old patch which means the game
didn't work properly at all!
The original game uses a second disk to store the save games, I have
patched this so the game now saves to files ("FirstContact.saveX" where X
is the save game number (0-3), max. 4 save games are supported).
If you try to load a non-existent save game WHDLoad will quit with an
error message as otherwise the game would try to load the save game
I have also added an unlimited energy trainer which can be enabled with
