This install applies to "Lords of Doom" © 1990/91 Starbyte.
This install requires WHDLoad and DIC to be in the path.
These programs can be found in the WHDLoad package.
To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.
The installed game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem
(+1.7 MB for preload and Kickstart ROM).
It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").
The game requires an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 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
an appropriate 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/skick346.lha" on aminet.

A patch for this game was requested about half a year ago and here
it finally is. Code is quite OK but there were a few problems to
fix such as a wrong hardware register access in the intro ($dfef8c
instead of $dff074) and some other minor things.
The game uses a custom formatted disk for its save games, this
is fully supported in this patch. During installation you will be
asked if you want to install a save disk, use this to install your
already existing save game disk.
It is recommended to use the "Create data disk" option in the game
before saving for the first time, this will create an empty
save disk. You can also use this option to erase an existing
save disk. It is possible to save a game without creating a save disk
first but if you try to load a non-existent save game WHDLoad will
quit with a "Seek error" which I deliberately did not patch!
Enjoy the game from HD.
