 This install applies to "Spellbound Dizzy"  1992 Codemasters.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad 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 (+0.6 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 (Copylock)
 - Out of bounds blits fixed
 - Unlimited lives bug fixed (see below)
 - Trainer options added (CUSTOM1)
 - Decruncher (Imploder) relocated to fast memory
 - DMA wait in replayer fixed
 - Keyboard routine rewritten
 - Supports SPS 2142 version
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 This patch was requested 3 days ago and I quickly made it. This game
 has a very strange bug and I doubt it was tested very well at all.
 Once you died for the first time the lives display (the eggs in the status
 panel) would be empty and you also had unlimited lives. Turns out the
 code to decrease the lives was completely(!) missing, I can't believe
 they sold the game like this...

 I have added the missing code so in this patch the game works properly,
 you will lose a life once your energy is zero and the lives will be redrawn
 properly in the status panel!

 I have also added an unlimited lives trainer [oh the irony :)], an unlimited
 energy trainer and also added in-game keys, if enabled you can use the following
 extra keys:
 
 L - toggles unlimited lives
 E - toggles unlimited lives


 There also were out of bounds blits which I have fixed too, the game won't blit
 outside the $80000 memory area anymore!

 I have tested the game a bit and it seems to work fine but it's not unlikely 
 there'll be more problems seeing how "well" it was tested before release, the
 "unlimited lives and buggy lives display" is probably one of the strangest bugs
 I ever saw in any original game!

 Have a nice festive season and enjoy the game from HD.
