Welcome to the patch for yet another classic music disk.
Made it this morning and except for the modulo bug in the scroller
which kept me busy for a while there wasn't much to fix.
The scroller only worked correctly on OCS machines, on ECS/AGA machines
it would be unreadable due to a modulo bug caused by a very low ddfstrt
value. Also, on OCS machines the scroller is displayed with a scanline effect.
To achieve the same effect any ECS/AGA machines I had to adapt the scroller
code, I simply use the blitter to copy the original scroller screen to
a different location in memory and use the modulo to achieve the scanline
effect by copying every other line only.
Other than that there was a rather stupid bug in the sprite routines which
caused an access fault due to a wrong loop counter check. Result was a write
access to a "random" memory location which of course wasn't exactly nice.
You can download the demo here:
That about wraps it up, have a nice summer everyone and enjoy
the demo from HD how.
