This patch was requested yesterday and when I arrived at work this
morning I started to work on it and had everything finished after
some hours of not too hard work.
I got the images from the Amiga Forever CD but these were made from
the commonly available cracked version. This patch should work
with the original version too but I couldn't test it for obvious
Load/Save is fully supported, if you already have a data disk you
can install it using the install package. If you manually want
to copy a save disk create an image of it with DIC and rename
the file to "disk.4".
If no data disk is found the slave will create one, this feature
can be disabled with the CUSTOM1 tooltype.
I have added support for the ButtonWait tooltype, if enabled
both title pictures will be shown until either left mouse button
or fire is pressed. Due to the fast loading from HD the pictures
will be almost invisible otherwise.
The game is better than Kick Off 3 at least but still not exactly
good in my opinion. It features quite an ugly mix of assembly and
C with lots of debug routines left in the code.
Speaking of ugly code, even 2 years after the release of Kick Off 3
the coder still didn't know how to relocate a binary hence there
are still 2 binaries, one for 1MB chip and 1 for 512k/512k
fake fast at $c00000. Really no further comment needed! Instead
of trying to protect the code with lots of useless checksums time
should have been spent learning a thing or two about relocations...
Enjoy the game from HD anyway.
