 Started the patch for this demo about 2 months ago, patched the first
 few parts and then more or less forgot about it. Until today. :)
 Today I patched the remaining parts and the loader and finished
 the patch. The demo is quite nice for 1990, I have always liked it!
 Nice parts with good music and quite nice code for its day too!
 There were a few problems to fix but generally the code is fine,
 especially for 1990.

 I had to add a few blitter waits, these are only applied on 68010+
 machines, to force the blitter waits on 68000 machines you can
 use the CUSTOM1 tooltype.

 Greetings to the whole Polish scene, you guys sure know how to party
 and how to make interesting demos. :)

 Too bad the Polish scene was kinda separated from the rest back in
 the day but that's now all part of the history. :)

 Enjoy yet another classic from HD.
