For a TBL demo you get a real amiga off eBay

Seriously, if you start patching the emu to cope for badly written code...

Unfortunately they do work on the real thing accidentally. Reading write-only or non-existing custom registers returns "random" data which sooner or later passes the buggy comparison..

It is simply the result of a typo in the original source... and not intentional.
Not the first one we've seen with Toni... and certainly not the last

On a slight tangent, has TBL ever been a member of this board? I'd be honoured to meet the man who created those demos

"The" man?

TBL is a group, all demos are done by groups, in most cases.

So you'll need about 6 people to join to meet TBL
