This patch applies to "California Games" (c) 1988 Epyx/Westwood Associates
- 2 disks.  Thanks to Angus Manwaring for sending the original!

- Requires a registered WHDLoad keyfile
- Slave requires WHDLoad V16+ and an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image
- Game requires 768k chip mem and 256k other mem (+1.1Mb other memory for
  preload option)

- Full load from HD
- Copy protection removed (Herndon HLS Duplication/encryption/disk check x2)
- Loads and saves best scores
- Manual included
- RomIcon, NewIcon and OS3.5 Colour Icons (created by me!) and 2 Exoticons
  (taken from http://exotica.fix.no)
- Quit option (default key is 'F10')

Yet another Herndon protected game bites the dust!  Ben Herndon must have
had a few complaints from people about his copy protection failing on newer
Amigas and so adjusted it slightly.  Between the loops of self modifying
code he setup an $800 byte area of nop's which was called to try and knock
out the prefetch and cache problems.  I imagine that it still would have
failed on 040/060 Amigas due to the large cache size but it should now work
on all Amigas!  To try and be clever he also encrypted the game twice
instead of the usual once!

There are a couple of graphical glitches in the game - the surfer has a
missing line down the middle when facing left and the woman that catches
the frisbee in the flying disk event is not correctly drawn all the time.
You will just have to live with these problems! I believe they are related
to changes in sprites on AGA machines.

You must have a registered version of WHDLoad to play this game!

If you have an unmodified version of this game with a blank high score
table please contact me as I would like to include clean scores in the

The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
must be named "kick34005.A500".  The image can be extracted from an A500
with tools like "GrabKick" or similar which can be found on Aminet.  If the
image is the wrong version or altered in any way, WHDLoad will quit with an
appropriate error 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/skick343.lha" on Aminet.

Thanks to Angus for the original, Captain^HIT and Angus for testing, Wepl
for the superb Kickstart 1.3 interface, all Action members and the WHDLoad
team!  Happy new year everyone!
