So today there's not a patch for a music disk, instead I have finally
created a patch for this fine demo by Complex. Patch was requested
by Frequent a while ago and I always wanted to make one for this demo
anyway as I still like it.
Dalton's code is fine, not too many problems had to be fixed. I had
to add quite a few blitter waits though, 320 of them alone in the
plasma+sine scroller part (coders will know what that means) but
that was quickly done with a few lines of code. The blitter waits
in this part are only applied on 68010+ machines, all other blitter
waits are not time-critical so they will also be installed on 68000
Other than the blitter waits there was a bug in the line drawer in the
greetings part, due to missing clipping completely wrong and illegal
coordinates were calculated resulting in blitting to non-existing
memory areas. Quite a few Bplcon0 color bit fixes had to be added too
and some other minor problems needed fixing. Still, for a 1991 demo
the code is quite clean!
The great picture which is shown while loading in the original disk
based demo disappeared quite quickly due to the fast loading from
HD, I have added a delay to show the picture for 5 seconds in this
patch, if you are impatient you can also press the left mouse button
to skip the picture.
If you want to save some HD space you can pack all files in the "data"
directoy with any of the crunchers supported by WHDLoad (FImp, Propack etc.),
the files can be crunched pretty well as they are all unpacked.
Well, that about wraps it up, enjoy the demo from HD, it's still enjoyable
so many years later and the music is truly great!
Special greetings to Frequent. :)
