Another old Crusaders music disk which was quickly patched. Much
more interesting than patching the demo was the ReSource bug I
had to deal with. The demo binary, when decrunched, has an
odd (i.e. not even) file size which ReSource doesn't handle that well,
displaying the disassembled code was impossible. It was easy
to work-around that bug but it still kinda amused me.
Other than that there was some sprite trash on screen from time
to time as the coder only initalised the first sprite pointer, this
was fixed by some "use both copperlists" magic, i.e. first copperlist
initialises the sprite pointers and then starts the second copperlist.
If you want to save some space you can compress all files in the
"modules" directory with any of the crunchers supported by WHDLOad
(FImp, Propack etc.).
Not much more to say here, enjoy yet another classic music disk
