Patched this demo just for fun, it features quite good code but has the same
problem a lot of the Cult demos have: it's rather boring. For some reason I
always kept my copy of this demo though, even though it is somehwat boring it
is still not bad!
Patching it wasn't much work, I had to add a lot of blitter waits as there were
none used in the innerloops of the plasma part and the sine scroller parts.
The blitter wait patches are only installed on 68010+ machines. There also
was an access fault, this was caused by a broken and buggy clear memory routine.
Other than that there wasn't much to fix which is worth mentioning for a demo
released in 1991.
Enjoy it from HD.
