 This install applies to "Revenge of the Mutant Camels 2"  1988 Mastertronic.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and RawDIC to be in the path.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+0.3 MB OtherMem for preload).
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (encrypted disk format, track check)
 - OS stuff patched (AllocMem, Open/Read/Close etc.)
 - Timing fixed
 - Read from color register fixed
 - Copperlist trashing fixed
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed
 - Bplcon0 color bit fixes (x3)
 - CPU dependent delay in text writer fixed
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 When I arrived at work this morning I checked The Zone on EAB and found
 this game uploaded there. Had a quick look and it was interesting enough
 to create a patch. The disk format is standard Amiga DOS but each block
 is encrypted, the patches for the DoIO and other OS calls are installed
 in the bootblock in a quite nice TVD-like fashion. However, as interesting
 as the disk format is as simple it was to defeat as it's clear that the
 data is loaded using standard Amiga-OS system calls.
 Creating the RawDIC imager was quickly done and patching the game didn't
 take that long either, there were quite a few bugs to correct though!

 Worst one is the copperlist trashing, coder stored the pointer to replayer
 binary but only allocated a word for it which in turn meant the first word
 of the copperlist was destroyed. Talk about lame code... This has been
 fixed of course!

 There are some strange bugs in the replayer, after spending quite some hours
 to find the reason without any success I decided to release the patch as is!
 The sound problems even occur on a standard 68000 Amiga so something must
 be seriously broken. Should I find the reason I'll update the patch.


 A funny thing concerning the protection was the actual protection track check,
 it was performed in a fake "stack" command, very lame indeed (something similar
 was done in the TV Sports Football "protection"). 

 Anyway, enjoy the game from HD, it's not exactly great in my opinion which is
 why I didn't bother to add any trainers at all.

 Thanks to Nujack for the disk image!
