14 About this demo:
15 ========================================
16 This demo was started around 1991 while
17 my group was trying to finish out giga
18 demo, the Phaleon Demo.
19
20 Since I did all the tools used to make
21 the Phaleon using GFA Basic, I had a
22 pretty good idea of how to write some
23 decent code. Now well, university, beer,
24 and other factors comploted to make sure
25 the demo would never be finished.
26
27 So in 1992 it was abandonned.
28
29 And in 2008 I finally managed to find
30 the various floppies and hard-drive
31 backups containing parts of what should
32 have been a 10 minute long something
33 demo with partial fullscreens, etc...
34
35 About two third of effects are lost, so
36 I did what I could with what I had,
37 mostly tweaking timings, changing texts,
38 adding fades, some pictures at the start
39 and end, and well that's about it :)
40
41 Some people will complain that this is
42 not a real release, that the Atari
43 scene got enough shit releases, but well
44 I'm just happy to have it finally
45 released, because I spent some serious
46 amount of hours to do it.
47
48 Hope you like it :)

50 How to run it on a real Atari:
51 ========================================
52 Format a floppy in 720k format, copy the
53 prg file on it, insert the floppy in the
54 atari, run it.
55
