 This install applies to "Kingdoms of England"  1989 Incognito Software.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad and DIC to be in the path.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem (+1.8 MB for preload)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 The game requires an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image.
 The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
 must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from a A500 with
 tools like 'GrabKick' or similar which can be found on aminet.
 If the image is of wrong version or altered in any way WHDLoad will quit with
 an appropriate message.
 Additionally the file "kick34005.A500.RTB" must be installed in the same
 directory as the kickstart image. It can be found in the archive
 "util/boot/skick346.lha" on aminet.

 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Protection removed (track check)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included (also on Github, link below)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 I started this patch more than 10 years ago and faced a problem with
 the disk change not working correctly. After a while I got fed up
 and moved on to other things, but did not forget about the patch.
 In the last days I spent about 22 hours to finally finish the patch.
 
 The current version of the patch uses disk images, but in a later
 update I will convert it to using files. I have already created the
 RawDIC imager, which handles saving the files and also decrypting
 the file names. However, so far I could not get the patch running
 correctly with files, so for now disk images are used.

 The game has interesting low level code, it creates its very own
 dos.library using MakeLibrary and AddLibrary. This library handles
 all disk accessing routines by emulating all DOS routines required
 for the game. I'm pretty sure the development version of the game
 was running from harddisk already! 


 The latest version of the source for this patch can be found on
 my Github: https://github.com/MK1Roxxor/WHDLoad_Patches/blob/master/Games/KingdomsOfEngland_WHD.s

 Enjoy the game from HD.
