 This install requires WHDLoad and RawDIC to be in the path. Both can be found

 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed program requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 1.0 MB OtherMem.
 It can be quit by pressing Num '*' (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 If you have problems with this installation please try and get a newer
 version of this package from the WHDLoad WWW-Page. If that doesn't help try
 some Tooltypes like NOCACHE, NOAUTOVEC, NOVBRMOVE, NOMMU, PAL or NTSC. If
 that also fails, please inform the author via the Bug-Report-Form which
 can be accessed on the WHDLoad WWW-Page or create a mantis issue directly

 version 4.4 (05.08.2022) done by JOTD:
 - on US and german versions, saving/loading a game was broken
 - fixed: no music on princess intermission after completing level 1
   caution: you need to copy the new reloc.#? files into the data dir
 - fix PAL versions display when NTSC tooltype is set
   (super-smooth game, this also makes the game easier time-wise) (issue #0005745)
 - added option to completely disable "up" in favor of second button.
   this is a request from Hexaae. I don't find it convenient, but ok...

 - CUSTOM2: subset of trainer: just unlimited levelskip & keeps minutes.

 version 3.0 (01.01.2005) done by JOTD

 version 2.1 (2001) done by JOTD

 version 2.0 (2001) done by JOTD & Harry
 - WHDLoad version using JST2WHD emulation macros
 - Convenient installer script
 - 3 versions of the game supported (US,Europe,German)
 - load/save games to HD
 - remembers best times (thanks Harry!)
 - No more 'unexpected exception' during the game
 - Removed ALL disk accesses
 - Cool icon by Frank/Exoticons/???
 - Annoying password potion level removed (does not appear at all)
 - Set CUSTOM5=1 tooltype gives infinite time/infinite energy,
   and enables level skip (Shift+L) for levels above 4.

 versions 1.x (1997-1999) done by JOTD:
 - JST releases

In-game keys:

 - Ctrl-R: quit current game & go to main game menu
 - Ctrl-S: sound on/off
 - Ctrl-L: load game (from main game menu)
 - Ctrl-G: save game (level 3 and higher, but not last level)
   (if cheat is set, game can be saved at any level)
 - Ctrl-V: show game version
 - Ctrl-Q: quit to workbench (used to reboot) (QWERTY keyboard)
 - Ctrl-A: restart level (QWERTY keyboard)
 - Shift-L: skip levels but not above to level 4 & sets timer to 15 minutes
   (if cheat is set timer isn't changed and all levels can be skipped)
 - Space: show remaining time
 - Esc: pause
 - Joystick/Numerical keypad:  directions
 - Fire/Right Amiga: fire
 - 5 on keypad: give up fight

Notes:

 - After reloading a game, CTRL key must be pressed before Shift-L can be used
 - If trainer (infinite time/energy) is set, Ctrl-G has no effect, and high scores are not saved
 - when using trainer infinite energy and falling in pits
   the level doesn't auto-restart. Use Ctrl-A to restart level manually
 - the second/blue button jumps, but "up" is not suppressed. This was too complex to
   reverse-engineer for sword fight and pull up when hanging, and most of all not
   that annoying to still have "up" for jump in that case. The second button jump is
   still a very good asset with the joypad to avoid failing a diagonal jump and dying...
 - reloc tables were specially created to be able to run that game from fast memory.
   To upgrade your installation, just copy those .reloc files in the game data directory.
   The slave selects the proper one automatically according to game version.
 - NTSC tooltype can be used on PAL versions but that's considered as cheating because the
   game is super fast and the time limit isn't adjusted accordingly
 - Just found out that the protection level was completely disabled
   from german original. I guess they didn't bother encoding the german manual
   into the game for that.
