 This install applies to "Black Hornet"  1991 Hi-Tec.

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

 The installed game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+0.8 MB OtherMem for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (track check, encrypted relocation entries)
 - OS stuff patched (AllocMem, Open/Read/Close etc., AddIntServer)
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM1)
 - Starting level can be selected with CUSTOM2
 - High-score load/save (saving disabled when trainers are used)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Made 99% of this patch back in March 2015 and then got sidetracked
 as usual so the almost finished patch collected dust on my HD for the
 next months to come. Today I took some minutes to add the last 1% and 
 finally finished the patch.

 Protection wasn't too bad for a budget game, protection code was encrypted
 and loaded in the bootblock, then decrypted in a (quite simple)
 trace vector decoder, then the encrypted relocation table was loaded and
 the binary was relocated and started. That means I had to to create
 a fully working AmigaDOS executable for this WHDLoad patch which could
 then be relocated and started. Not too hard to do but fun.

 Rest was business as usual, the game uses a lot OS calls for allocating
 memory, setting up the interrupts, reading the keyboard and loading the
 files. This all had to be emulated. I also added quite a few trainer
 options which can be selected in WHDLoad's splash window. If in-game
 keys are enabled the following extra keys can be used:

 E - toggle unlimited energy
 F - toggle unlimited fuel
 G - refuel
 B - toggle unlimited continues
 M - toggle unlimited money
 N - skip level
 
 If any trainer options are used, the high-score saving will be disabled!


 All files in the "data" directory can be packed with any cruncher supported
 by WHDLoad (FImp, ProPack etc.).

 Enjoy the game from HD, it's not the worst shooter out there, for a budget game
 it's actually quite OK!
