The name sounds familiar, but then I'm only a very 
occasional reader of rgvc.

Uih. What's the basic idea behind that?

The Dig assembles alomst everything that was ever posted 
to the list, a lot of buggy and non-working stuff is 
there, too. I fixed the 'Another' demo some time ago for 
the 'alpha' and 'beta' demos. If you've some special 
interest in 'another', try looking in the archive for 
the 'beta' demo source, which is working and compiling 
with DASM.

Z26 is king here. Something running on the real thing 
and not with Z26 must be due to a bug on the real thing!
