Anarchy's Hardcore Demo - How the hell are you meant to use this LHA?

I remember back many years ago when this demo in particular used to be a simple ADF or DMS (can't remember which) - but Pouet.net, here:

https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=413

Now has the Download in the form of an LHA which I have no idea what I'm meant to do with.

I've tried running the exe in it normally - it crashes.

It's not clear at all what I'm meant to do to get it running, when the old disk image served fine.

If it's meant to be installed on an ADF, why not prepare it beforehand?

I thought the whole point of the Amiga demoscene's access was to make it as accessible as possible.

So what should I do with this file?

It is meant to run from floppy.
I prepared an adf, it's in the zone.

I just extracted the lha and copied the files to a blank bootblock 1.3 disk and added a startup-sequence, that's all.

I thought as much. I wonder why they re-released it like it was? So people had to do this themselves?

Don't think anyone involved with the demo "re-released" it like that. Probably somone thought it was a good idea for some reason or other.
