 After I patched a lot of old Thrust demos this morning I remembered
 another old German group which made some nice stuff back in the day.
 Yes, it's Prophets AG and this vector demo, while not the most
 entertaining demo, is still nice to watch. It features Tip's quite
 fast line routine which he later released to the public. The demo
 also features some nice music by T.A.R. (The Acustic Revolution),
 definitely way ahead of its time when it comes to tracked music
 from 1989, "snare slide" is still one of my favorites modules!

 The code is quite good, not much had to be patched, I spent most
 of the time recoding the scroller in the intro to use the hardware
 instead of graphics.library functions (I hate demo patches that need a
 Kickstart ROM!) but it was fun to do. I don't really understand
 why this demo was released as a trackloaded one though as it only
 consists of 2 small files. Since this patch uses real files that not
 much of a problem any longer of course.

 The demo can be downloaded here:
 ftp://ftp.amigascne.org/pub/amiga/Groups/P/Prophets_AG/VECTORDEMO.DMS

 Enjoy the demo from HD.
