 This install applies to "Treasure Trap"  1989 Emerald Software Ltd.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and DIC 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 (+0.9 MB for preload)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Load/Save supported
 - Automatic creation of save disk (see below)
 - Protection removed (5x disk checks, 5x trace vector decoder)
 - Intro can be skipped with CUSTOM1
 - Trainers added (CUSTOM2, see below)
 - CIA register access fixed (x2)
 - Joypad support added (Fire 2/BLUE: pick up/drop, GREEN: smart fish
                         YELLOW: map)
 - Joypad support can be disabled with CUSTOM4
 - DMA wait in replayers fixed (x4)
 - Byte write to volume register in replayers fixed (x2)
 - Manual included
 - Source code included as usual
 - 3 NewIcons (created by me)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Here it finally is, the patch for quite a classic game. Doing the
 patch was a lot of fun, first I noticed that the disk contains a
 file table so I coded a RawDIC imager to save all files. Some of
 the files (such as the binaries with the code) were crunched so next
 step was coding the decruncher. Then I could examine everything and
 noticed that the game uses relocation info for the binaries that
 contain code so you can probably guess what I did next. I coded
 a converter which created standard Amiga DOS executables out of these
 binaries so I could disassemble them with ease.
 The fun part ended here, rest was business as usual and quickly done,
 after a few hours of not too hard work everything was finished.

 Protection was a track check similar to Copylock, i.e. code was
 decrypted with a trace vector decoder but it was very easy to defeat!
 What's even worse, nothing was hidden in the encrypted code so all
 protection checks were rather useless as only the result of the track
 check was checked. There are 5 of these disk checks but 1 of the checks
 appears to be completely unused as it seems to be placed at a wrong
 location in the binary. I have disabled it anyway. :) 

 Since the game is quite hard I have also added some trainers, either
 enable them with the CUSTOM2 tooltype or just select them in WHDLoad's
 splash window. Available trainers are:

 CUSTOM2=1: enables unlimited lives
 CUSTOM2=2: enables unlimited air
 CUSTOM2=4: enables unlimited fish
 CUSTOM2=8: start with 999 pieces of gold


 To enable more than one trainer option just add the numbers together,
 for example CUSTOM2=3 (1+2) will enable unlimited lives and unlimited air.
 I deliberately did not add in-game keys to avoid problems because the game
 allows to redefine keys.
 I'll most probably update the patch later and add a trainer menu for
 easy selection of the trainer options. For now I want to get this patch
 out though so no trainer menu yet.
 

 I've also added an option to completely skip the intro, you can enable it
 with CUSTOM1=1. While the game allows to skip the intro too you still
 had to wait quite a while for that to happen which is why I added this
 option.

 Load/Save is supported, game uses an extra disk for the high scores and
 save games. If no save disk (disk.2) is found the slave will create it,
 this feature can be disabled with CUSTOM3=1. 
 Please note that high score saving is disabled if you use any of the
 trainer options.

 If you already have a save disk you can install it using the install
 package, just select the appropriate option. You can either install
 the game only, the game and a save disk or a save disk only.

 Update, 28-Jul-2016
 -------------------

 I got a request for adding CD32 joypad support which is what I did
 today. If the joypad support causes any problems it can be disabled
 with CUSTOM4. Following buttons are supported:
 Fire 2/BLUE: pick up/drop objects
       GREEN: smart fish
      YELLOW: open map


 That about wraps it up, enjoy this nice game from HD now.
