This patch applies to Wizkid, 1992 Sensible Software / Ocean
2 Disk version, original release

Slave requires WHDLOAD V17+.
Game requires 1.0 MB Chip Mem (+ 2.2 other memory for preload option)

Version 1.0

- Lame-o-Protect removed (SOS MFM / Copylock x2)
- NTSC protection removed
- Quit option is 'Del'

Version 1.1

- Data directory renamed to "data"
- Disk accesses removed
- Bplcon0 color bit fixes

Version 1.3 (01.08.2020, Codetapper)
- Added ability to show the happy birthday intro
- Fixed empty DBF loops in the ProTracker replayer

NOTE:  If you already have the game installed, simply copy across the 
updated .slave file, no re-installation is necessary.

Thanks to Wepl for disk images.

The MFM protection system is the same as all the Sensible games, apart
from one minor detail.  Some of the files are custom packed with a byte run
packer, which depacks data whilst it's loading tracks.  This was a bind to
work around, hence the weird install sequence!

As usual, because I have installed the game as REAL files, you can view all
the graphics in the game and play the protracker modules.

Tested on my 68o3o and 68o6o, the game operates correctly.

If you should have any problems, send me mail.

This release would have been done sooner if not for one little
detail....... I'm a lazy twat!

For invincibility, hold down the fire button whilst loading until the
screen flashes.

NOTES V1.2 (StingRay)

Saw some bug reports regarding this game on the Mantis bug tracker yesterday
and had a look, first thing I did was coding the RawDIC imager which wasn't
hard to do, the RLE decruncher was quickly adapted and the install procedure
is now much faster than in previous versions and works reliably.
There also was no install script in the archive, this has been fixed too
of course, I would have needed to create a new install script anyway due to
the new RawDIC imager. The patch has also been improved, I have removed
several disk accesses, added some Bplcon0 color bit fixes and high score
load/save is now also supported. Some trainers have been added as well, to
see the available in-game keys press "HELP" during the game. As usual the
high score saving is disabled if any of the trainer options has been used.

StingRay in November 2018.

NOTES V1.3 (Codetapper)

After investigating how the "Happy birthday" intro worked, I decided to 
update the patch to allow it to be viewed automatically. I also fixed the 
empty DBF loops in the ProTracker replayer code that had been missed.

Codetapper in August 2020.
