alien 2 by scoopex - black

i downloaded alien 2 by scoopex from http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=1344
can't run alien2.bat file which is in archive so i have to run the files directly by doubleclick.
if i run fadeout (first entry in alien2.bat) workbench is black in black, not readable anymore.
have to reboot as i can't click anything else due to not being able to see/read anything.
if i run part1.exe demo starts. hear music playing, but i see nothing. screen stays black.
how to run and watch this demo? what is config needed? already tried running setpatch.

Then simply remove that line from the script. It was just to fade the workbench screen if memory serves me right and is not important.

Edit: just checked, demo runs fine if Alien2.bat is executed. If fadeout is not found something is wrong on your end (run SnoopDOS to see what happens).

Do you start demos from Workbench? The best way to start demos is to boot without startup-sequence, execute setpach and then execute demo.

really tricky doing reaching early startup menu for boot without startup-sequence in winuae!
emulation is so incredibly fast which means you have to reboot and press mouse at the same time!
two hands are not enough... today finally i managed to do so, by using chin additional to hands...
at least, this demo worked without startup-sequence...

Well, only tricky if you don't know how to use WinUAE's options properly! Host->Miscellaneous->One second reboot pause and there is nothing tricky anymore when it comes to accessing the early startup menu.
