It was about time that this classic got the WHDLoad treatment which
is why I patched it this morning when I arrived at work. I always
loved this one, very simple code but very entertaining demo thanks
to the nice animations. The "Ottifants" were created by Otto Waalkes,
a famous German comedian. This very demo also once had the longest
scrolltext ever but it was beaten shortly after it was released.
Worth to mention is that the scrolltext was protected with a checksum,
in case someone would modify the text the demo would reset the Amiga!
I have patched this, in case a modified scrolltext is found an error
message will be displayed and WHDLoad will quit back to DOS.
The demo also uses ByteKiller crunched data, I have, as usual, relocated
the decruncher to fast memory and added an error check.
The demo can be downloaded here:
Enjoy this great classic from days long gone by which is still fondly
remembered by many prople.
