 This update is now finally finished too. I started the work on it
 back in December 2011 and got stuck trying to fix the problem with
 the sample player. On fast machines samples weren't played properly
 and I couldn't find the reason. Fast forward almost 6 years later,
 I fixed a sample player problem in the Blues Brothers patch yesterday
 and checked the Sly Spy patch to see if I could fix the sample player
 the same way. Turned out the problem was a different one but I finally
 found the cause and fixed it after a couple of hours! Check the comments
 in the source code if you're curious why the sample player didn't work
 correctly on fast machines. The sample player code is actually quite
 good, interesting how small mistakes can break code completely.

 Once that was fixed I also fixed the crash that happened after the
 name was entered and music was enabled. A few access faults also
 needed to be fixed as well.

 I have completed the game several times and there were no problems
 so all bugs should hopefully be fixed.

 As usual I have also added a few trainer options which can be selected
 in WHDLoad's splash window. If in-game keys are enabled the following
 extra keys can be used:

 E: refresh energy
 A: refresh ammo
 T: toggle unlimited time
 N: skip level
 
 Please note that high-score saving is disabled if any trainer options
 are used.


 Enjoy the game from HD. Greetings to Bored Seal who made the first
 versions of this patch. :)
