Update to patch for Omnicron Conspiracy

Nearly four years ago, I created a patch for a problem in Omnicron Conspiracy. In the meantime, I've been told that this patch didn't work for everybody. It turns out that there are multiple versions of the game, so it's time for an update.

There are two versions of Omnicron Conspiracy. One is published by Epyx, the other by ImageWorks. The latter also requires the rerouting of function INT21/AH=08 to INT16/AH=00, while the former doesn't (although it doesn't hurt). This has been added in version 1.1 of the patch.

Great patch, thanks a lot!

The problem doesn't only occur when using Dosbox but also on original hardware.
I couldn't get Enter presses recognised on my ImageWorks copy running under MS-DOS 6.22 on my Pentium 233 MMX system. Don't know if it can't handle PS/2 keyboards, if the problem lies with me using a USB keyboard via USB to PS/2 adapter or if the problem has another cause. After all the hardware still came out quite a few years after the game's release.
