WORDS FROM THE AUTHOR

I remember playing a version of this back on the Speccy. Not really sure you can
call it much of a game, but a curious diversion for a bit!

The patch was straightforward enough. The copylock protection on the release I
looked at was completely useless - the check was in the 'boot' file, only did a
simple key compare, but even then can be completely skipped by loading the main
'FRUITY' game file directly. As such, the install only copies this file as that
is all that's needed.

While patching the highscores to save to disk, I found the game had a bug where
not all the scores were correctly shuffled down - the one at the point your
score appears was missed out, so one score got lost and another duplicated.
Simple enough to fix - I'm not the least bit surprised it got missed given how
hard it is to get a score in this game!

Some stray Atari ST address accesses needed patching out, and a CPU-dependent
loop in the audio routine - nothing major.

I added an infinite money trainer rather than infinite spins, as otherwise you
wouldn't ever be able to 'finish' the game!

Greetings to Codetapper, Wepl and all the WHDLoad team!
