A patch for this great one-file demo coded by Celebrandil was requested
two days ago by Frequent/Ephidrena. Today, during my lunch break at
work, I started to create the patch. Since the code is really good
there wasn't much to do, I had an almost fully working patch after about
30 minutes of easy work. Then there was a Go Kart race with the workmates
were yours truly got 3rd place in the race and it was a lot of fun. :)
To celebrate my victory I fixed some minor timing problems when I got back
home, created the install package and finished the patch.
The demo is still nice to watch, 2 new effects were invented:
glenz vectors (with the infamous spurious black lines) and space-cut
which was quite a jaw-dropper back then! Today the same effect can be
easily achieved using a z-buffer approach but back then when the 7.09
Mhz 68000 ruled the world lots of math and optimised code was necessary
to achieve this effect, hats off to Celebrandil! The demo also features
an excellent tune by Tip and Firefox so what's not to like?
The demo can be downloaded here:
Enjoy this classic piece of nostalgia and remember the good old days.
