Second patch today is for this old music disk by Animators.
Not quite my favorite Animators release (far from it) but I patched it
anyway. Not much code here, the only real problem was the random generator
which relied on the raster beam position which in turn means that is
produces bad results on fast machines. I have completely recoded it.
There also were some "empty" dbf loops used for timing, I have fixed
these too of course. I have no idea why they decided to release it as
trackloaded demo as it consists of one file only. The RawDIC imager
was quickly coded anyway. If you want to save disk space you can compress
the "AbsenceOfLight" file with any of the crunchers supported by WHDLoad.
The demo can be downloaded here:
Enjoy it from HD.
