Quite a nice demo for early 1990, good graphics and nice music.
Code is quite OK as well, there was some SMC in the scroller and
vector routine which I have fixed. The demo also has buggy/missing
double buffering which I noticed when I "emulated" the VBeamPos()
routine, I have added a workaround for this problem which works fine
on my machines, should you experience some gaps in the vector part
please contact me, I'll update the patch then and add real double
If you want to save some HD space you can pack the "Astrogate" file
with any cruncher supported by WHDLoad (FImp, Propack etc.).
The music is quite nice!
Enjoy the demo from HD.
