              Unprotect for Mean 18 Golf EGA Version (IBM PC)
            And for the Arch program included with Mean 18 Golf

 BE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR MEAN 18 GOLF DISK BEFORE STARTING AND USE THE
 BACK UP FOR THE UNPROTECT. THIS WAY IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG THEN YOU
 ARE NOT OUT A GOLF GAME..........

 First you should rename the file golf.exe to golf

     C>rename golf.exe golf

 Next Load golf into debug...

     C>debug golf

 Then Follow the sample debug session:

     -e d91d                    :   Edit the contents of address d91d

     XXXX:d91d  9A.             :   Should appear
                                :   If 9A does not appear.. press enter and
                                :   quit immediately.  Your version is not
                                :   the same as mine.

 Now type "EB" then press the SPACE bar.

     XXXX:d91d  9A.eb   3B.     :   Should appear
                                :   If 3B does not appear.. press enter and
                                :   quit immediately.

 Now type "1E" then press the ENTER key.

 Now write the new golf game back to the disk:

     -w  <Enter>

     Writing XXXXX bytes

 Then Quit Debug:

     -q  <Enter>

 Now it is time to rename GOLF back to GOLF.EXE

     C>ren golf golf.exe

 Now try to run the new (Hopefully) unprotected version Of Mean 18 Golf

     XXXX:610B  9A.             :   Should appear

 Much thanks to Joan Riff for writing such a fine interrupt trace
 routine.  Without which I would have never finished this unprotect.
