|Why this Re-release ?                                                          |
|---------------------                                                          |
|We originally released this game in december 2006.                             |
|Then sometime later we found out there was a couple of bugs with the loader:   |
|                                                                               |
|* The scanner only detected 1541 drives properly from device #8 - FIXED!       |
|                                                                               |
|  This bug was caused by Action Replay and Retro Replay. Those carts set       |
|  register $1802 to $7a, but doesnt put the original value back ($1a)          |
|  So when I send "UI" the drive chokes and forces the 1541 to device number #8 |
|  So if you ran it from device #9 you suddenly loose connection.               |
|  This bug only happened if you loaded the boot file with AR/RR fastloader ON. |
|  Turning drive on and off after loading boot file would set $1802 properly.   |
|                                                                               |
|* The loader on CMD HD didnt work - Fixed!                                     |
|                                                                               |
|  It was a tiny patch bug.                                                     |
|                                                                               |
|* The loader for 1541 drives only worked as device #8 - Fixed!                 |
|                                                                               |
|  We forgot to mask the device number bits of $1800 in the source code.        |
|                                                                               |
|* Some people with jiffydos had problmes running this game. It turns out that  |
|  even my disk original doesnt work with jiffydos. The reason is the "load"    |
|  basic calls. When a Load is called from basic, Jiffydos jumps in and pre-    |
|  sniffs on the device line. It tries to communicate with the drive.           |
|  Or should i say, It tries to communicate with N0SD0S.                        |
|  That won't work! So disable Jiffydos on your C64/C128 or you won't be able   |
|  to run this game.                                                            |
|                                                                               |
|Requirements:                                                                  |
|-------------                                                                  |
|C64/C128(D) with a 1541 drive.                                                 |
|                                                                               |
