It's been almost exactly 25 years that this demo was released and I
still love it! Really nice graphics (I totally love the logo in
the first part), nice music and entertaining parts.
Metalwar's code is really good so patching the demo wasn't much work, I
did it while having my morning coffee. :)
Except for correcting the Bplcon2 settings in part 3, fixing the common
replayer bugs (DMA wait, byte write to volume register, SMC) and adding
a blitter wait in the end part there wasn't much to do. Some minor timing
problems had to be fixed too but other than that the code is fine!
The parts were all crunched with ByteKiller, I have relocated all
decrunchers and added an error check as usual, if decrunching fails
WHDLoad will quit with an appropriate error message.
The demo can be downloaded here:
Enjoy this great classic from HD and have a nice weekend everyone.
