This patch was requested by Shoonay back in January this year and
today I finally got around to patching this quite nice demo.
Good graphics, nice effects and 3 good tunes make this quite an
enjoyable demo which is only spoiled by the too long intro sequence.
However, this patch fixes this problem. :)
You can skip the intro sequence with Custom1=1, the demo will start
with the effect parts immediately then.
The "change disk" part is disabled by default, however, since it
features nice graphics I decided to enable it with Custom2=1.
You'll have to press left mouse button to skip this part.
If you use the ButtonWait tooltype you'll have to press either
space or fire to show the next fractal. This is for very fast
machines (or emulators) as otherwise the fractals won't be
visible very long because of the very fast calculations.
Not much more to say about this one except that it is still
a very enjoyable demo more than 20 years after it was released.
Good code here, only the vector parts all used SMC which wasn't
really necessary but has been fixed of course.
There also was a bug in the bobs part, coder forgot to skip
over some data pointers, luckily for him it didn't cause any
trouble because the data pointers were "converted" to valid
680x0 instructions by pure luck. But I have fixed this anyway!
I guess that about wraps it up. Have a nice summer everyone and enjoy
the demo from HD how.
