Short : HD-Installer for Prophecy: The Viking Child
Type : game/patch
Author : Bored Seal, StingRay
This patch applies to "Prophecy: The Viking Child" by Imagitec Design (c) 1990 - 3 disks.
Slave requires WHDLOAD V10+.
Game requires 0.5 MB ChipRAM (+ 2.1MB for PreLoad option)
- Full loading from HD
- 2 versions supported
- Disk protection removed
- Keyboard interrupt fixed
- Decruncher moved to FastRAM
- Beam delays added
- Highscores are saved
- Trainer option added (set CUSTOM1=1 for unlimited lives)
- NI/ROM icon (created by JHZ)
- Quit option (your default key)
V1.0 (06-Sep-1999) - first release
V1.1 beta (10-Jul-2006) - beam delays added, decruncher relocated (READ THE NOTES!)
- taglist fixed to work with WHDLoad v16.6
V1.2 (30-Nov-2017) done by StingRay
- RawDIC imager (requires RawDIC 5.0)
- patches added for one version in V1.1 applied the other other supported version too
- WHDLoad v17+ features used (config)
- new install script
* Changes for V1.1 are made only for 1 version. I've lost other supported version,
so if slave exits with "ILLEGAL instruction" error message, please contact me
and I will update it for your version
* Install procedure doesn't work in multitask. Don't panic and wait until ripping/loading
stuff is finished. It can take about 1-2 minutes for 1 disk.
I (StingRay) have coded a RawDIC imager so the installation is now MUCH faster!
Coding the imager took longer than expected but was fun to do. I have applied the
changes Bored Seal added in V1.1 to to the other supported version too so it
is now supported again. I will update the patch later again and add 68000 quitkey
support and other things but for now this quick update should do, the RawDIC
imager is a major improvement in my opinion.
Thanks to Chris Vella for disk images.
