Hologon by The Electronic Knights WHDLoad

Hi Folks.


This awesome demo would be super sweet to run on the A600 Furia.
Hologon by The Electronic Knights

[ Show youtube player ]




I have no Gotek or spare disks so Demos that "require" a Floppy

are such a pain Please make a HD-Install like
The Fall by the Deadliners/Lemon for example (thanks StingRay)


I dont care if it would need more Ram PLEASE DEMO MAKERS


Anyway, could anybody make a WHDLoad version of this ?
Would be super sweet

Thank You

This is Floppy only demo. I have the demo
It is no adf of this demo so Gotek will not help.
Furia is no point for this one. Runs 100% perfect on standard A500 1MB.
One of the best ever for A500

I sent Floppy to Berlin and TEK sent it back to me with the demo
Also numbered as nr. 55 with label and everything. Sweeeeet

I LOVE DEMOS and TEK is awesome, but why this DEMO ?
There other demos run just fine on the A600 Furia.

Why are the Demo Gods so mean LET us INSTALL pleaaaaase !!
Maybe one day the Demo Gods will hear my pray

Man i love this Demos and it always dissapoints me when its a NDOS or HIDDEN.

PLEASE let us Install, please dear DEMO GODS.
Youre unworthy little Smurf, Torti (T_T)

I got the disk too, and I think this was meant to encourage swapping. I've also had the ADF for a while, but hesitated to share online because of this.

Now, however, the demo is released on Pouet.

The people in Customs must be scratching their heads when they open letters and see floppy disks arrive.

Hopefully blue box scene will restart

Sure it would run fine on the A600 BUT, like i wrote above


"I have no Gotek or spare disks so Demos that "require" a Floppy

THATs the problem.



So, i have no way to play it, because it FORCES me to use a floppy disk.
(i have only my worbench disks and thats all disks i have)


The disk isnt even full so why hide the file / write it so it only works from floppy?


Maybe i should sacrifice one of my Workbench disks ?
Better, PLEASE dear Demo Gods, make it play from CF/SD/HD.


Thank you guys, you are the best

Games and demos use large parts of RAM (especially Chip RAM) for buffers, tables, and other workspace, so the entire demo can't be loaded at once. Data must be loaded during execution.

On 68000 Amigas, only a few demos load files from disk during execution, because the OS must be partially turned on during file loading, and OS file loading is slow.

Therefore, track-loading is preferred, just as for many games. So there are no files that the authors are hiding from you

WHDLoad was created to load such track-loaded games within Workbench. For this, the disk image is required. It was made available online Thursday evening.

How long it will take to create a WHDLoad slave depends on workload and spare time of slave writers. You have started the ball rolling by requesting it but perhaps the thread would be better in project.WHDLoad? There's no dedicated sub-forum for requesting WHDLoad slaves for demos as there is for games.
