Short but nice demo here, released at The Gathering'92 and ranked 5th
in the demo compo. Code is quite good but some things still had to
be fixed, for example the random routine used to generate the coords
for the stars in the first part. The original routine relied on the
raster beam position ($dff006) and produced bad results on fast machines
so I simply recoded it! There also was some SMC to fix and some blitter
waits had to be added too, since the blitter wait patches are not
time-critical they will also be applied on 68000 machines.
Enjoy this nice demo from HD, the only flaw is the sine scroller
part, it is much too long in my opinion.
