Title......: HD-Installer for Wizkid
Type.......: game/patch (WHDLoad)
Author.....: Galahad / Scoopex (galahadfairlight@yahoo.co.uk)

This patch applies to Wizkid, 1992 Sensible Software / Ocean
2 Disk version, original release

Slave requires WHDLOAD V15+.
Game requires 1.0 MB Chip Mem (+ 2.2 other memory for preload option)

FEATURES:
Version 1.0
- Full load from Hard drive (REAL files!)
- Lame-o-Protect removed (SOS MFM / Copylock x2)
- NTSC protection removed
- Quit option is 'Del'

Version 1.1
- Reduced chip memory requirements to 1meg
- 68000 quit key added

NOTE:  If you already have the game installed, simply copy across the 
updated .slave file, no re-installation is necessary.

Thanks to Wepl for disk images.

EXTRA NOTES:
My apologies for the 'bizzarre' install sequence, but if you want the game
to install properly on your machine, it's a small price to pay I think :)

The install is SLLLOOOOOWWWW!  

Just be thankful you only have to do it once!

The MFM protection system is the same as all the Sensible games, apart
from one minor detail.  Some of the files are custom packed with a byte run
packer, which depacks data whilst it's loading tracks.  This was a bind to
work around, hence the weird install sequence!

As usual, because I have installed the game as REAL files, you can view all
the graphics in the game and play the protracker modules.

Tested on my 68o3o and 68o6o, the game operates correctly.

If you should have any problems, send me mail.

This release would have been done sooner if not for one little
detail....... I'm a lazy twat!

CHEAT:
For invincibility, hold down the fire button whilst loading until the
screen flashes.
