 PARTY HAS BEEN POINTED AT SUCH POSSIBILITIES OF DAMAGE.

 This install applies to "Shadow Sorcerer"  1991 TSR/SSI/US GOLD.

 This install requires WHDLoad, DIC, RawDIC and The Patcher to be in the path.
 The programs can be found in the WHDLoad package.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed program requires 1 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem.
 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/skick345.lha" on aminet.

 If you have problems with this installation please try and get a newer
 version of this package from the WHDLoad WWW-Page.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, EXPCHIP, 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.

 version 1.0 (16.11.05) done by CFou!:
 - initial release
 - Only european multilanguage version supported 
 - Manual protection removed
 - Several 'Move D0,SR' replaced by 'Move d0,CCR'
  (to fix bad privilege violation interupt on better cpu than 68000)
   -> read after for technical information about this problem
 - Files buffer size fixed (more small=>random crash when buffer was overflowed)
 - Colored icons added
 - Source code included

 version 1.1 (12.03.20) done by CFou!:
 - source code adapter to WHDLoad 17+
 - english version support added (SPS 275)
 - now works on 68000 too
   (SR/CCR patches only applied on 68010 and higher CPU)
 - ExitKey added for 68000
 - Less chip memory needed
 - New install script

 *********************** technical information ***************************
 The 68000 did not meet the Popek and Goldberg virtualization requirements
 for full processor virtualization because it had a single unprivileged
 instruction "MOVE from SR", which allowed user-mode software read-only
 access to a small amount of privileged state.
 
 The 68000 was also unable to easily support virtual memory, which requires
 the ability to trap and recover from a failed memory access.
 The 68000 does provide a bus error exception which can be used to trap,
 but it does not save enough processor state to resume the faulted instruction
 once the operating system has handled the exception.
 Several companies did succeed in making 68000 based Unix workstations with
 virtual memory that worked, by using two 68000 chips running in parallel on
 different phased clocks. When the "leading" 68000 encountered a bad memory
 access, extra hardware would interrupt the "main" 68000 to prevent it from
 also encountering the bad memory access. This interrupt routine would handle
 the virtual memory functions and restart the "leading" 68000 in the correct
 state to continue properly synchronized operation when the "main" 68000
 returned from the interrupt.
 
 These problems were fixed in the next major revision of the 68K architecture,
 with the release of the MC68010. The Bus Error and Address Error instructions
 pushed a large amount of internal state onto the supervisor stack in order
 to facilitate recovery, and the MOVE from SR instruction was made privileged.
 A new unprivileged "MOVE from CCR" instruction was provided for use in its
 place by user mode software; an operating system could trap and emulate
 user-mode MOVE from SR instructions if desired.
