I always liked this demo so I started the day at work with creating a
patch for it. There weren't too many problems, 2 parts had wrong DIWSTRT
($dff08e) settings so they only worked correctly on OCS machines, other
than that there were no major problems. The demo originally reboots the
machine after the last part, I have patched this of course, now the demo
will simply quit back to DOS after the last part. I have also relocated
the TetraPack decrunchers (TetraPack is basically a ByteKiller clone with
an additional RLE pass and lacks the checksum check), if you like
the flashing colors during decrunching you can enable them with CUSTOM1=1.
The demo features a nice loader part which would be almost invisible due
to the fast loading from HD. To fix that I have added support for the
ButtonWait tooltype, if enabled you will have to press right mouse button
to load the next part, this way you can enjoy the loader screen.
The deno can be downloaded here:
Enjoy another classic demo from HD and have a nice summer everyone.
