Changes done to this demo compared to RFO VDC V1:

NTSC C128:

- compability to NTSC C128's added

drives/loader:

- IRQ-loader removed, extra memory of the C128 is now used as RAM-disk
- demo now works with more than 1 drive connected
- demo now also works from non-1541-compatible drives
- depack delay of the endpart removed

workarounds for the 8563 VDC (the buggy beast):

- Tech-Tech part now 8563 VDC compatible. actually a bug of the 8563 and not the demo,
but I added a workaround for the VDC bug which works on all VDC revisions.
- improved HSync signal of the system info screen and the RFO logo on 8563 VDC.

general changes:

- system info screen now continues after a few seconds (hold screen with SHIFT-LOCK)
- endpart now resets to BASIC after the scrolltext is finished (hold part with SHIFT-LOCK)
- demo is "almost" single file now: the entire demo now is contained in a single
227 blocks PRG file, except for a small 27 blocks extra file which contains the
extra graphics of the tech-tech part when run on a 64KB VDC. that 2nd file is not
required to run the demo!
- experimental 60 Hz mode added. hold "<-" in the beginning to force demo into it
- the demo now has become a true C128 demo, meaning that it runs in C128 mode and not
in C64 mode like the old version. as a result of this, the demo can no longer be
started in C64 mode.
- demo now needs less blocks on disk.
- due to the reset at the end of the demo, it is now possible to run this demo in a loop if there is a boot block on disk.
