 This install applies to "Black Cauldron"  1987 Sierra.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and RawDIC to be in the path.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed demo requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+0.5 MB OtherMem for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing Del (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (Herndon HLS encrypted executable, disk check)
 - RawDIC imager to save files from game disk
 - Load/Save directory requests disabled
 - Solution included
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'Del')

 I have quickly redone this patch today, first I only wanted to
 to use my RawDIC imager to install the game files so UnADF wouldn't
 be needed any longer, then I had a look at the code for the old patch
 and decided to redo it as the Herndon HLS protection stuff was bypassed
 in a rather dirty way. So I coded a decrypter for the game and also
 disabled the annoying requests for the Load/Save directory as these
 are not needed when playing the game from HD.

 Enjoy this old Sierra classic.
