I've done some demos on BitWorld. But yes, it's a lot of work.

Usually though, assumptions can be made.

1) You can go by year to find out which kick/chipset was available. It's very likely that a demo released in 1986-87 requires Kick 1.2, and maybe is even A1000-only, and might frown upon fastmem/slowmem. 1988-89 is A500 kick 1.2 or 1.3, and might frown upon fastmem/slowmem. 1990-1993 is OCS and will usually work with fastmem and kick 1.2-2.0. 1993 to 2009...I dunno, if it doesn't start on your rig you have a too crappy Amiga?

2) Any OCS demo that works with non-chipmem installed also works on an AGA Amiga works on anything. Exception is demos without blitwaits. (Bobrecords etc.)

3) You can assume that demos are not backwards-compatible. Some are forward-compatible.

4) Anything released today is for AGA 060 16M and up, unless otherwise specified.

Hey, smiley selector in EAB needs a drunken master icon... I hear beer glasses are popular graphics these days

I'll take this instead then
