This install applies to "4th & Inches" © 1988 Accolade.
This install requires WHDLoad and DIC to be in the path.
These programs 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 (+0.3 MB for preload)
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.

This one was requested by EreWeGo yesterday on EAB and so I quickly
made a patch for this game. It's one of these games that didn't run
on anything else than 68000 thanks to the copy protection. Protection
was Herndon HLS which means encrypted binary and disk checks. Wasn't
hard to defeat but it was fun to code the decrypter.
There were graphics problems in the game on fast machines, these should
now be fixed as I have added quite a lot of blitter waits. I have also
fixed some illegal blit operations which were caused by an uninitialised
address register. Additionally I have fixed a long read from $dff008 and
included the manual. The game should now work fine without any graphics
problems on all machines.
Enjoy the game from HD now.
