Made this patch some weeks ago but didn't create the install package
as I couldn't find a 100% working version of the demo and my own disk
is broken too. There is an apparently "fixed" version on the Amigascne FTP
which is completely useless! Someone (I strongly suspect it was the
same person with "good" manners that made me stop posting links to
to the demos in the readme texts for my WHDLoad patches) just replaced
the 2 broken modules with "good" versions. Too bad this very person
had no clue about module formats and apparently never ever tested the
demo at all! Long story short, this "fix" is utterly useless as the
replaced files are modules the replay routine in the demo doesn't handle
at all since they are in the newer (i.e. 31 samples/M.K. sign) module format.
I'll try to create a proper version of the demo but for now you have to
live with the 2 broken modules unless you have a 100% working disk
in your possession. :) Those on the net are all broken!
The demo code had a few problems, worst was the OCS only DIWSTRT in
the copperlist, on ECS/AGA machines there would just be an almost
empty screen. Some self-modifying code had to be fixed too and the
usual replayer bugs had to be fixed too.
Enjoy this classic music disk with tunes by Dr. Aw(e)some from HD.
