 IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO USE, RESULTS AND
 PERFORMANCE OF THE PACKAGE IS ASSUMED BY YOU AND IF THE PACKAGE SHOULD PROVE
 TO BE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,

 This install applies to "Loom"  1990 LucasFilm Games, 1 disk

 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path. It can be found in
 the WHDLoad package.

 The installed program requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem.
 It can be quit by pressing num '*' (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 If you have problems with this installation please try and get a newer
 version of this package from the WHDLoad WWW-Page. If that doesn't help try
 some Tooltypes like NOCACHE, NOAUTOVEC, NOVBRMOVE, NOMMU, PAL or NTSC. If
 that also fails, please inform the author via the Bug-Report-Form which
 can be accessed on the WHDLoad WWW-Page.

Requirements:

 The game requires a 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
 a appropriate requester.
 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.

Thanks to Bert Jahn for writing kickemu.s kickstart interface system.

History:

- v2.0-C (25.12.2018):
  - official support for CDTV version (worked before, though). Issue #0003761

- v2.0-B (25.12.2018):
  - official support for italian version (worked before, though). Issue #0003934
  - rewrote readme
  
- v2.0 (24.08.2017):
  - rewrote slave to support whdload v16/kickemu/kickfs, got rid of kickDOS
  (there isn't any kick 3.1 only slave, only kick 1.3 slave now, and it's easy to recompile)
  - source code included
  
v1.2:
 - included slave for A1200 kickstart ROM (solves freeze problems)
 
v1.1:
 - keyboard fix for 68060 (general kickstart 1.3 problem)
 
v1.0 (2001): initial release
  
 - Runs fully from HD using WHDLoad/KickEmu
 - Convenient install script
 - Full use of fast memory
 - Copy protection removed (by me this time, and that's clean :))
 - Save on HD with minimal number of OS swaps (black flashing screens)
 - Should support all original versions (french, english, german)
 - Quit key (numerical '*', or configurable with QUITKEY)
 - Doc/Walkthrough included


Notes:

- I re-did the crack because existing ones act on the 069.LFL file, and I don't like
  that. The original game should remain unpatched and still work without the protection.
  Maybe a better reason is that my method allows protection bypass on all versions
  (not only english version)
- Another good way would have been to dynamically modify the 069.LFL file like done on other
  Lucasarts patches: Indy 4 & Monkey Island 2. Well, maybe if I have issues with my crack, but
  it seems to work ok, so let it be...
- seems that typing a new savegame and pressing "Load" freezes the game.
