And another patch is finished. Started it last Friday when I arrived
at work and today (Monday) I finished it when I arrived at work.
Except for the usual problems with the replayer and some missing blitter
waits there wasn't much I had to fix. The coder of the main part made a
small typo, instead of move.l #$dff180,a0 he used move.w #$dff180,a0 which
meant the first part of the address ($0dff) was cut off. This in turn
meant that the address was converted to $ffff0180 because of the
automatic sign extension. A nice access fault was the result.
The blitter wait patches are only enabled on 68020+ machines. You can completely
disable them with Custom2=1. If you want to force the blitter waits even on
68000 machines you can use Custom3=1.
The demo also features a reset part, you can enable it with
