Early Megademo from Finland here which is still enjoyable. If you
like scrollers that is. :) Code is more or less OK but a few things
had to be fixed such as the usual replayer bugs, interrupt acknowledging,
timimg on fast machines and stuff like that. Last part used AllocMem which
had to be replaced too but that wasn't much of a problem. I have also
added support for the ButtonWait tooltype, if you enable it the next
part will be started once you press right mouse button.
There also was a bug regarding the loader part, after the first part
it wasn't displayed (black screen), I have fixed this too in this patch.
The last part kills the loader part as it is loaded to the same address
so there will be a black screen during decrunching.
All parts were crunched with ByteKiller, I have relocated all decrunchers
to fast memory and added an error check, if decrunching fails WHDLoad
will quit with an appropriate error message.
The demo can be downloaded here:
Have a nice weekend everyone and enjoy yet another classic demo from HD.
