- Reset at end patched to quit demo
- Source code included as usual
- NewIcon (created by me)
- Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')
Here's the next patch for a Warfalcons demo. I always liked this even
though it's more or less a collection of vector routines. Music by
Einstein is OK but he made much better tunes in my opinion.
The code by Master Ace is quite good, there were not many problems
I had to fix. The demo uses the old trick to precalculate data
while a text screen is displayed. That means on faster machines
the text disappears much faster than on 68000 machines. I have
fixed this with a bit of interrupt magic, no more timing problems
on fast machines. There also were a few CPU dependent timing loops
I had to fix.
Master Ace tried to protect his code, the loader and all files were
encrypted and all accesses to any hardware registers have been disguised.
Not much of a challenge but interesting. The disk format is also quite
interesting (for a demo that is), first 80 tracks are on side 0,
following 80 tracks are on side 1.
Enjoy this nice demo from HD now!
