 This install applies to "Scary Mutant Space Aliens from Mars"  1989 ReadySoft.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad 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 (manual checks)
 - Access fault fixed
 - "White Wire" bug fixed
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included (also on Github, link below)
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')


 This game had a major bug which rendered it incompletable. At one
 point, you need to obtain the "white wire", due to the bug this was not
 possible. This problem has been fixed in this patch, the game can now
 be completed. There also was an access fault caused by a bug in the
 game parser, this has been fixed too. The game code is in 100% 68000
 assembly, not too common for adventure games on Amiga. It is quite bloated
 and not well structured though, it could have been done much better.
 The coder also made some funny typos, the loader binary has been assembled
 with debug symbols, you can find labels such as "PlainOne", "PlainTwo" etc.
 in the binary for the plane pointers. These should have been "PlaneOne",
 "PlaneTwo" etc. of course. :) 

 All protection checks have been disabled, the manual check when loading a
 game has been completely removed, when you want to use the computer
 ("Dryfon 3000") you can use any word when asked for the code.

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

 Enjoy the game from HD.
