Fair cop Jammer; it's missing a lot of the elements I was going to incorporate before I fucked up my scheduling. There's still memory left!

Thanks for the props, all :)

A bit of dilemma here. Pulling off FLI within 16k is madness but at the same time intro is not of those prettiest ones ;)

Read the production note. Really needed that to understand why this is so amazing. The memory limits wreak havoc on design in this case.

Unbelievable to see FLI stuff with this 16kb limit. Must be some black magic involved.

..and 1.2 runs code to initialise d800 after depacking, rather than having a packed segment that decrunches to d800 directly.

Definitely looks like something I wouldn't expect to be possible with the 16K continuous area restriction. Respect!

@Isildur, I was torn about whether to replace the one someone kindly provided within minutes of the first release. On the one hand, it didn't show off the plasma, but on the other it also didn't spoil the surprise :)

OK, 1.1 also clears interrupts and sets $01 after the unpacker jumps to $6de0. Let me know if that's ok!

The decrunched program has to be runable directly from sysline, so if you need any registers like $01 to be set to make it working, these settings need to be done inside the $4000 limited area.

Your plasma thing deserves better screenshot!

Decruncher needs ROM and interrupts disabled. Would
    lda #$7f
    sta $dc0d
    sta 1
be ok? I can defer the d011 and d02x writes after decompressing; they were just to blank during decrunch.

I can rerun the same code at 6de0 as well if that gets me back inside the rules.

Makes some init at $080d without the relocated code at $4000-$8000 does not run. Counts as used memory, sorry. Invalid entry the way it is.
