Prince of Persia 1 - Fat Guard Fix

A fix file for the classic Prince of Persia game.

Introduction

Fat guard was meant to be killed by the Prince in the course of 6th level either by life points drain or by falling but not by deadly traps so, whenever the player manages to kill him by chomper or by spikes, fat guard will always disappear because there are no "chomped" or "spiked" animations in the original "fat.dat" file; this is why the Author put all his efforts to draw these animations and set proper palette for the joy of all level makers who lacked a bloody fight between Prince and fat guy.
