 This install applies to "King's Bounty"  1991 New World Computing.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 These programs can be found in the WHDLoad package.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem
 (+0.9 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
 - 2 versions supported
 - Protection removed (manual check)
 - CloseWorkBench bug fixed
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Another one off the "should be finished one day" list. Started the
 first version of the patch back in March 2014 but got quickly annoyed
 as the game didn't work and just immediately returned to CLI.
 Fast forward 4 years, got a PM on EAB from CodyJarrett yesterday, he
 asked if I was still working on the patch for this very game.
 So today I had a look at it again, added a workaround to fix the "game
 quits to CLI immediately" problem and faced yet another problem, game
 crashed upon startup, this was caused by a CloseWorkBench call and took
 me a while to find. Once that offending CloseWorkBench call was disabled
 the game worked fine so I just had to disable the manual protection and
 patch the in-game quit routine. So the patch for this nice game is now
 finally finished too at last. 

 Enjoy the game from HD.
