This is another one of those demos I had already patched back in the
day, back in 1997 I created a custom patch for it.
Today, after finishing the patch for the Don Martin music disk by Hypnosis
I noticed that there was no WHDLoad patch for this demo so I made one.
I had a first working version finished after about 45 minutes but then I
spent quite a bit of time making the end part work correctly as it was
originally relying on the fact that loading the last part takes quite a
while. I also had to fix an access fault which happened in the first
fullscreen picture part. The check for extended memory had to be fixed
too as it used a rather bad approach and only checked for extended memory
in the fake fast range. Other than that there were no major problems.
I always liked this demo despite the rather simple code which is usual
for Vanish demos. I still think it's the best demo Vanish ever released,
it placed 3rd at the World of Commodore competition.
I think it is still OK to watch 21 years after its release, there are
some nice graphics by Navy and the tune isn't bad either.
Enjoy the demo from HD and have a nice summer everyone.
