Thank you for the fix. I've just noticed that I'm no author of this stuff anymore ;)

Excellent work, BiGFooT. I considered taking a run at it after groepaz' comment a few days ago, but I must admit I'd no idea how many most excellent parts there were in the original.

Extraordinary turnaround for the work involved, and well done raising the profile of the original release. It really does deserve a better reputation than just "that thing that only works on emulators"

Cheers for the shoutout for nucrunch too - always good to hear of people finding it useful :)

Haha, na. Now i am even less motivated to come near it (or even look at that source) =) Great to have it properly working, it was really a shame it didnt.

Thanks for all of your kind words guys.

@Groepaz: I've tried to change as less as possible in the code and remain authentic. You can fix the flickering for yourself, as the source is included. Okay, okay no makefile, but you can solve it, I've the trust in you.

Awesome work there, and accurate AKA :o) One more thing i can scratch off the list, perhaps i should mention more things on there =D

And what annoys me much more than that you fix it - is that you didnt fix the grey dot flicker. AAAARGS. Perhaps one of those leet point hunters can do it :)

About time this got fixed, it's really a good onefile demo but it was emulator-specific-only as it required to use the ancient VICE 1.7 to be watched.
Thanks for the effort.

Wow! Great it's finally transformed into a *real* c64 demo! Thanks for taking the task and finishing it in no time! Outstanding!

Have to admit that I also wanted to get my hands on this Repair-Amber-Cow-challenge for... maybe even more than 22years;)?? You guys show how to do it right and I'm happy to have you in the c64 scene. You rock!
