This is a very nice music disk which has been clearly inspired by
Anarchy's "Legalise It" music disk. Great tunes and quite good code!
The only major problems were the random generator for the starfield,
since it relied on the raster beam position it produced very bad results
on fast machines, I have completely recoded it.
The other problem was a quite lame volume bug (same as in "New Age"
by Ram Jam), instead of using move.w #$40,volume coder used
move.w $40,volume which of course means the volume will be zero if the
word at $40.w is cleared. Fixing it wasn't a problem of course.
Other than that the code is really good! There are also a few hidden
words that you can enter, they all trigger the same hidden part.
The words you can enter are:
Default quitkey is "Del" as F10 is used in the demo to control
the scroll speed.
Well, that about wraps it up, enjoy this nice music disk from HD.
