Here's the new and updated patch for this rather craptastic game. I couldn't
be bothered to spend more time than necessary on it so no trainers or any
other special features this time. I doubt anyone will seriously play
this game anyway.
The old patch crashed in the introduction part, this has been fixed.
The crashes were caused by not properly emulated exceptions, these
exceptions were caused by "great" code in the vector routines, instead
of doing it properly, coder just used chk/trap/div0 exceptions to
catch certain errors. It's one of the worst and slowest vector routines
I've ever seen in a game. No more comments needed, really!
There also were some disk accesses in the old patch and some other
problems, these have all been fixed now!
"Enjoy" the game from HD.
