Here it finally is, the WHDLoad patch for one of the best OCS
demos in a long while! Originally released at the Revision
demo party where it won the compo and it sure was a really
great experience to see such a top notch demo on the big screen!
I had the patch for the party version finished a few days after
Revision but then Paradroid told me that he's working on a final
version. I helped him a bit with bug fixing and tested the new
versions on my A4000/060 which was great fun!
Paradroid finished the final version and now, quite some months
later, I finally got around to doing the WHDLoad patch for it.
Since Paradroid spent a lot of time creating the final version
I have decided to drop all support for the party version, please
watch the final version and don't ask me to add support for
the party version as I won't do that!
The code here is really top class, the low-level routines to
handle the demo effects, loading and all other stuff are really
good! Paradroid still knows his 68k bits'n'pieces after a break
of so many years! :)
Patching the demo wasn't much work [hi Paradroid, I can answer your
message to me in the hidden part with "no, it wasn't" :)],
I only fixed the relocation routines to work from any memory location,
originally Paradroid checked for a few hard coded memory addresses
in the (fake) fast range and actually this is the part of the demo
code I like the least for obvious reasons! :)
Anyway, I didn't like the idea to release a WHDLoad patch which
would require 1MB Chip Mem so I simply patched/fixed the relocation
routines. I had to align the memory for this to work properly
(otherwise the demo would crash before the credits part) so the
patch requires 512k+65536bytes extra mem. I don't think this
is a big problem though.
If you are unable to find the hidden part you can use the CUSTOM1
tooltype which will enable the hidden part. Try to find it yourself
Enough words, just enjoy the demo from HD now! As stated in the
demo: "Winners don't use AGA". This demo is the perfect proof. :)
