It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").
- Full load from HD

skip a level
So here's the Death Trap WHDLoad slave. Not really planned, one of
the "it just sort of happened" things [sorry Galahad! ;)]. Not very
hard to fix, I had the most fun coding the decrypter for the main
file, the rest was all business as usual. Another one of those games
that didn't work on 680x0 machines due to the protection. The game
code itself is very clean!
If you wonder about the somewhat slow loading time, the game only
loads one track at a time and decrunches it (all the data has
been crunched with Lord Blitter's very own ByteKiller).
Have fun with this game from HD now.
Love and peace, Sting, 07-Feb-2009
