 - Load/save support
 - Unlimited energy trainer added (CUSTOM1)
 - Interrupts fixed
 - Keyboard routine fixed
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'Del')


 V1.1 Notes (StingRay):
 ----------------------

 Another old Mr.Larmer patch is now updated, major improvement is the
 load/save support. I have also disabled all checksum checks, Mr.Larmer
 missed quite a few checksums in his old patch which means the game
 didn't work properly at all!

 The original game uses a second disk to store the save games, I have
 patched this so the game now saves to files ("FirstContact.saveX" where X
 is the save game number (0-3), max. 4 save games are supported).
 If you try to load a non-existent save game WHDLoad will quit with an
 error message as otherwise the game would try to load the save game
 forever!

 I have also added an unlimited energy trainer which can be enabled with
 CUSTOM1.
