 Old UFO demo here with mostly rather simple parts but I always liked
 the first part, there are some nice tunes as well. And since I liked
 the UFO stuff back in the day I created a patch for this demo.
 There also is quite a bit of Tarkus Team bashing going on in the
 scrollers which was yet another reason to do the patch. :)
 Since the code is rather simple this wasn't much work, the usual
 replayer bugs had to be fixed and there also were some CPU dependent
 delays as well. In part 3 the code used WaitTOF() to wait for the
 vertical blank but patching that wasn't a problem of course.
 Some parts had problems with sprite trash on screen which was caused
 by buggy sprite pointers in the copperlists, I have fixed this too
 of course.

 The demo originally had no disk change, you had to boot the 2 disks
 separately to see all the parts, in this patch I have added an option
 to boot directly from disk 2, this can be enabled with CUSTOM1=1.
 I have also added a disk change option, this can be enabled with CUSTOM2=1,
 if you use this option the demo will automatically switch to disk 2 after
 all parts from disk 1 have been run.
 The third and last option is CUSTOM3, it can be used to set the loop mode
 for the demo, any other value than 0 will enable the "Loop whole demo"
 mode, i.e. the demo will restart from the beginning. This will only work
 if CUSTOM2 has been used! If CUSTOM3 is set to 0 the demo will restart
 the first part on the current disk.

 Default quit key is "Del" because F10 is used in one of the parts.

 The demo can be downloaded here:
 ftp://ftp.amigascne.org/pub/amiga/Groups/U/United_Forces/UFO-Megademo.adf
 ftp://ftp.amigascne.org/pub/amiga/Groups/U/United_Forces/UFO-MegademoB.dms

 Do not use the disk 1 DMS image found on the amigascne ftp, it is broken!

 Enjoy the demo from HD.
