Short : HD-Installer for Lotus 3: The Ultimate Challenge V1.51
Type : game/patch
Author : Bored Seal (bored@whdload.de) and Harry

This patch applies to "Lotus 3" by Gremlin (c) 1992 - 2 disks.
Slave requires WHDLOAD V10+, install requires RawDIC.
Game requires 1.0 MB Chip Mem (+ 2.0 other memory for preload option)

- original release (supported by Helmut Motzkau)
- Lotus 3 Eine Exklusive Sammlung (supported by Heiko Scharbert)
- Lotus Trilogy compilation (supported by Arif Pervez)

- Full loading from HD
- 3 versions supported
- Copy protection removed
- Manual protection removed
- Blitter waits inserted
- Access faults fixed
- SQ/SF decrunchers relocated to Fast RAM
- NI/ROM icon (created by JHZ)
- Quit option (your default key)
- Course set save feature (on entering/leaving course set definition)
- Highscore save

To make exchange of course sets with other people possible, on each
leaving of the course set definition screen a file L3CourseSingle is
saved. When you hold fire down at program startup until LOADING appears,
this file is being loaded into your course set definition. Of course
you will have then to cancel the loading on choosing the course set
definition screen by the Escape key and save this new course set into
your global course set definitions file L3CourseAll on leaving the
course set definition screen.
A global course set definitions file with 3 course sets is included.
