 This install applies to "Spirit of Excalibur"  1991 Virgin.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 These programs can be found in the WHDLoad package.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5 OtherMem
 (+2.7 MB for preload)
 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/skick346.lha" on aminet.

 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - 3 versions supported (SPS 1586, SPS 2852, SPS 2853)
 - Protection removed (manual check)
 - Self-modifying code fixed
 - Intro can be skipped with CUSTOM1
 - POTGO bug fixed (move.w $c00.w,$dff034 -> move.w #$c00,$dff034)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 There were a few requests for this patch so I finally made one. Game
 code is very good but creating the patch still took a while as the
 game didn't load its files correctly when running in the WHDLoad environment.
 After quite a bit of trial and error I found the reason for it,
 Examine/ExNext didn't appear to work correctly so I had to create emulation
 code using WHDLoad functions. Once that was done the game worked correctly.

 There only was one major bug in the code, POTGO was initialised with the
 contents of $c00.w which of course is not what the coder intended. That
 was the only bug that had to be fixed though.

 Protection has been completely removed.

 Enjoy the game from HD.
