Short : HD-Installer for D/Generation ECS/AGA/CD≥≤
Type : game/patch
Author : JOTD

Install-Script & HD-loader © 2002-2018 JOTD

D/Generation © 1991-1994 Mindscape

Features (ECS/AGA version):

- Runs fully from HD using WHDLoad/KickEmu31/13
- Convenient install script
- Copylock protection removed (present only in ECS version)
- Saves to HD (as the original did)
- Quit key (numerical '*', or configurable with QUITKEY)
- Doc/Hints included

Features (CD≥≤ version):

- Runs fully from HD using WHDLoad/KickEmu31
- Convenient install script
- Saves to HD (in "nvram" file, thanks to new Wepl nonvolatile.s code)
- Joypad supported and emulated with function keys (F1-F6)
- Quit key (numerical '*', or configurable with QUITKEY)
- Doc/Hints/Walkthrough included

History:

- v2.4 (CD32 only): fixed savegames that didn't work
  game needs reinstalling, else just copy "nvram" in "data"
  seems that v2.0 install fix didn't fix after all, or that a whdload change about empty directory read
  broke the savegames. Anyway, all good now (note: don't leave Alt-S pressed too long else it will save
  a lot of times. Press any other key to stop that side effect)
- v2.3 (AGA only): super cheat mode: selectable number of lives, infinite power weapons & more
- v2.2: rewritten ECS/AGA versions for WHDLoad v17 (now ECS version has quit key on 68000, issue #003583)
- v2.1: rewritten CD32 version for WHDLoad v16
- v2.0: new ECS, AGA & CD≥≤ slaves,
  no more KickDOS stuff, shorter & faster slaves,
  CD≥≤ version supports real joypad.
  CD≥≤ users will have to reinstall the game in order to be able to save games
  (or the game will tell 'Game Save Locked')
- v1.3: fixed AGA slave. No more OS swaps now. Locked whdload versions below 15
  for AGA/CD≥≤ slaves
- v1.2: fixed ECS slave. CTRL-Q now quits, and if you save and the SAVE.DAT file
  is not in the directory, the game still saves. Added AGA floppy version.
- v1.1: added CD≥≤ version, which uses Kick 3.1
- v1.0: initial release

Notes:

- Should run on original & cracks.
- Read the documentation for load/save keys. Don't mix up Alt-R and CTRL-R
  (someone will recognize himself :))
- All versions now need WHDLoad v17.

Requirements (ECS version, SPS 677):

 The game requires a installed A500 Kickstart 3.1 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
 a appropriate requester.
 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.


Requirements (AGA version SPS 457/CD≥≤ version):

 The game requires a installed A1200 Kickstart 3.1 image.
 The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
 must be named "kick40068.A1200". The image can be extracted from a A1200 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
 a appropriate requester.
 Additionally the file "kick40068.A1200.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.

Thanks to Bert Jahn for writing kickemu.s kickstart interface system.
