Finally the patch for this demo is finished too. Started it back in
September 2013 already, coded a RawDIC imager and patched all parts but
then couldn't find the reason for some weird problem with the first
and second part so I admitted defeat after a while and stopped working
on the patch. Had a look at it some months later, fixed an access fault
in the replayer in part 1 but still couldn't find the reason for the
Today I finally had a look at it again, changed the patch to use a
disk image instead of real files, changed a few interrupt related
routines and added some OS emulation code for DoIO, AddIntServer etc.
and lo'n'behold, the demo finally works without problems!
If you want to enjoy the loader music or just want to read the scrolltext
you can use the ButtonWait option, the loader part will then run until
the right mouse button has been pressed.
Most of the parts are crunched with ByteKiller, I have relocated the
decruncher as usual and added an error check, if decrunching fails for
any reason WHDLoad will quit with an appropriate error message.
Enjoy this nice demo from HD, it features very nice graphics by Mithrandir,
nice tunes and enjoyable parts.
