Nice music disk with neat intro and good tunes. Creating the patch
took about 45 minutes, one particular problem that kept me busy for a
while was the trashed scroller area after loading a tune. Turns out the
module buffer was too small hence memory was trashed. When loading from
disk the several BSS sections were relocated to different memory locations
which hid this problem very well. In the WHDLoad patch the BSS sections are
located all next to each other which means the scroll screen which
follows directly atfer the module buffer was trashed. Always interesting
which bugs reveal itself when certain conditions are changed. :)
Other than that the code is pretty fine. I also like this part of the
"WE JUST H A T E TECHNO MUSIC !!! SISTERS OF MERCY, SKINNY PUPPY AND
FRONTLINE ASSEMBLY RULES !!!".
Apparently the Exile guys had a great taste in music! :)
All files in the "data" directory can be packed with any of the crunchers
supported by WHDLoad (FImp, ProPack etc.).
Enjoy the music disk from HD.
