Short:    HD-Installer for Rugby: The World Cup V1.2
Author:   Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com)
Uploader: Codetapper/Action (codetapper@hotmail.com)
Version:  1.2
Type:     game/patch
Requires: WHDLoad 10, 512k chip mem

This patch applies to "Rugby: The World Cup" (c) 1991 Domark - 1 disk.
Supported versions: SPS 258 (Carlo Pirri)
                    SPS 3730 (Irek Kloska)

- Slave requires WHDLoad V10+.
- Game requires 0.5Mb chip mem (+0.9Mb other memory for preload option)

FEATURES: (01-Jun-2000)
- Full load from HD
- Blitter waits inserted (x12)
- Snoop problems and broken delays fixed
- RomIcon, NewIcon and GlowIcon (created by me!)
- Quit option (default key is '*' on keypad)

VERSION 1.1: (24-Mar-2002)
- Decruncher relocated to fast memory
- Instructions included
- Snoop problems and broken delays fixed
- All icons reworked with a better selected image
- 2 Exoticons included (taken from http://exotica.fix.no)

VERSION 1.2: (03-Dec-2012)
- Added support for SPS 3730 (thanks to Irek)
- Fixed empty DBF loops in music replayer
- Stack relocated to fast memory
- Quit key changed to 'F10'

From what I can tell, SPS 3730 seems to be an earlier and more buggy version
compared to SPS 258:

- There is no demo mode
- The Domark logo is different
- The instruction screen while loading and decrunching is not there
- The game requires more waggling to win scrums
- You can't power up a kick in a different direction to your running direction
- Tackles instantly switch to a scrum without any warning or chance to steal
  the ball
- On one occassion the game became confused and the screen stayed centred on
  a particular player, even though he did not have the ball. The ball was 
  kicked up the pitch and yet the screen did not scroll to follow it! I could
  not duplicate this bug!
- Yet one piece of code that works in SPS 3730 causes an access fault in SPS 
  258 due to an incorrect branch instruction
