Isn't there a proper WHDLoad patch for this one already?

Edit: I checked the readme for the WHDLoad patch of Hardwired and it seems it has problems with faster machines. As I've coded an own custom installer for this demo back in '97 it shouldn't be too hard to fix the WHDLoad version too. I'll have a look.

I checked the available WHDLoad patch for Hardwired on my A4060 and it indeed didn't work that well. I just started to code a new WHDLoad slave from scratch but it will take a while until the fix is finished as there is A LOT to do. But the demo is of course worth it!

Yes, I checked it myself the other night on my 1260 and had black screens in some places and strange looking stuff on screen lol and it allways was a mysterie to me why none of u good coders out there ever got this piece of demo history (despite the awfull music lol) to work right on "modern" amiga rigs
So Stingray, this is super good news and i'm pretty sure u will get it right, coz i know u love the old classic demos as much as the next guy, from what i can tell on your posts around the different scene spots anyways.
I'll be watching this space and please take your time, we have been waiting like 14 years for this, so a little more waiting is least of all problems i guess
Take your time and do it right and I will be forever gratefull

I noticed exactly the same problems (black screen f.e. in the "48 faces glenz" part). I'm currently trying to find out why that happens. For some reason it only seems to happen on a real Amiga, on UAE this part is visible. But as said, I'm working on a proper fix.

It uses a blitter copperlist if I remember correctly for that part

Yes it does but this shouldn't cause a black screen. There are even proper blitter waits in that copperlist

Would suggest that its a timing issue then, the blit waits are now probably the cause of the no show on a faster machine.

Definitely not done in a few minutes. I'm still trying to find out the reason for the black screen in the Glenz part. And that's just one of MANY problems with the demo. This will take a while as already said.

Yes I am, don't worry I still didn't find the reason for the black screen problem and until this one isn't fixed I won't continue fixing the other parts. I already fixed a lot of stuff in the demo though (50x SMC f.e.). Just be patient.

If it uses the copper for blitting, probably the vblank sets bpl pointers and normal display regs? Perhaps the 060 incompatibility is there? Or are there no pixels in the framebuffers?
