 - DMA wait in replayer fixed (x8)
 - Bplcon0 color bit fixes (x5)

 I found this nice music disk yesterday when I was checking some old
 demos. Since I liked it I decided to patch it. I first started to code
 the patch using disk images but then decided to code a RawDIC imager
 and made it a real file based patch. Code is quite good, except for the
 memory check no major problems had to be fixed. The check for extended
 memory wasn't exactly good, the code only checked fixed addresses which
 meant real fast mem would not be detected. The demo also didn't work
 correctly with 512k fake fast, it crashed when loading the first module.
 I have fixed all these problems, this patch just needs 512k chip mem
 and 512k fast mem to work. 
 The replayers used system-friendly CIA interrupts which I had to recode
 using the hardware but that wasn't much of a problem. All data files have
 been crunched with PowerPacker, I have relocated all decrunchers to
 fast memory for better speed.

 The music disk can be be downloaded here:

 Enjoy this nicely presented music disk from HD, it features some nice calm
 tunes.
