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

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

Slave requires WHDLOAD V17+.
Game requires 1.0 MB Chip Mem (+ 2.2 other memory for preload option)

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

Version 1.2 (08.11.2018, StingRay)
- RawDIC imager
- Data directory renamed to "data"
- Disk accesses removed
- Bplcon0 color bit fixes
- Trainer options added
- High score load/save added (saving disabled if trainer is used)
- Default quitkey changed to F10
- New install script (script was completely missing in V1.1)
- Source code included

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.

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!

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

NOTES V1.2 (StingRay)

Saw some bug reports regarding this game on the Mantis bug tracker yesterday
and had a look, first thing I did was coding the RawDIC imager which wasn't
hard to do, the RLE decruncher was quickly adapted and the install procedure
is now much faster than in previous versions and works reliably.
There also was no install script in the archive, this has been fixed too
of course, I would have needed to create a new install script anyway due to
the new RawDIC imager. The patch has also been improved, I have removed
several disk accesses, added some Bplcon0 color bit fixes and high score
load/save is now also supported. Some trainers have been added as well, to
see the available in-game keys press "HELP" during the game. As usual the
high score saving is disabled if any of the trainer options has been used.

StingRay in November 2018.
