This is another old favorite of mine, a really nice vector demo with
a great tune and some not too usual objects, it also features
the first round vector object in an Amiga demo ever. Really nice code!
I patched the demo this morning when I arrived at work, except for a
CPU timed delay loop and the usual interrupt problems there wasn't much
to do. The demo has been crunched with MegaCruncher 1.2 (which is yet
another ByteKiller clone), I have relocated the decruncher to fast memory
and optimised the decruncher code. I have also added a check for the left
mouse button which can be used to quit the demo, that way you don't need
the keyboard at all. The demo would reset the Amiga at the end, I have
patched this too of course, the demo will now simply quit back to DOS at
The demo can be downloaded here:
Enjoy this classic vector demo.
