While waiting for Santa Claus :) I created a patch for this very
nice music disk released by Brainstorm back in 1991. Not much to say,
the code is rather clean (well, the little code that is there) so
patching the demo wasn't hard. There were some bugs and problems though.
Some self-modifiying code was used to disable a jmp in the DEFJAM
decruncher, at least that was the coder's intention. However, he used
a completely wrong offset so instead of modifying code in the decruncher
he trashed crunched data. It's actually quite a miracle that the code was
still decrunched correctly.
The code also relied on correct DMA/interrupt settings from the OS,
needless to say, that had to be fixed too.
I have added the possibility to choose the tunes with F1-F6, that
way you don't have to use the mouse. You can of course still use
the mouse to select the tunes too.
There are 2 hidden parts, you can enable them with the CUSTOM1 tooltype,
CUSTOM1=1 enables the first hidden part and I guess you can figure
out how to enable the 2nd hidden part on your own. :)
Try to find the hidden part yourself, it's not very hard. You won't miss
much if you can't find them anyway.
You can download the music disk here:
Enjoy the tunes!
