Sorry, didn't see the OP of your thread. Good job on the mod!

To be honest, visually, Second Reality is really nothing special, but sonically, it's legendary. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the soundtrack at least 16-bit and 8 channels minimum? AGA came...

As far as I know, Tramiel wanted ONLY the Amiga chipset and NOT the team that developed it. That would've been a colossal mistake.

Although I think that Commodore most likely lost its way when...

Sorry, wasn't thinking. As it is, it's late and I'm really tired, so I'll have a look tomorrow. Then again, having checked my available ROMs, there isn't a 3.0 one for A1200, so I guess I should use...

That might be fine if you're running the demo from WB, but what about running the demo from floppy disks, as in the example I cited? How do you choose the right WB then?

Doesn't Bruce Lee on the C64 have a glitch with the title character sprite, where his fist is detached from his arm when facing one direction? Whoops. ;)

Britelite, you're an AWESOME coder! I see your name appear in many demos in the last decade or thereabouts, and they're so memorable! Maybe you could tackle Second Reality for higher-end Amigas?

I've played Brutal Doom on a fairly fast PC and believe me, the graphical intensity that can occur will mean that no Amiga could ever run it. Never.

Wasn't a 68040 at 40MHz equivalent to the fastest 486? That's the impression I got. And when PCs got the Pentium (at least a version that wasn't buggy) then that was definitely it for the Amiga.
