 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
 scroll text:

 "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.
