The Snowman Demo (520 KB version) by Sundox - Atari ST Demo - The 25ish Days of Christmas - Eve BONUS 7!

Here is the 520 KB (really should be 512k) version of The Snowman demo.

The documentation mentions copying the disk properly to avoid timing problems.  I am unsure if this is the problem that is present or not, but I did capture this demo from two sources.

I do not presently have a working 512k Atari ST, so I utilized STeem, restricting the memory to 512k for the initial playback.  There were timing issues, and the wrong frames were displayed to start.  So I tried a 1040 STf, and a 1040 STe, which made no difference.  So, I decided to capture the output from the 1040 STe.

Does anyone know the secret, or have a proper disk image (MSA) of a working version to share?

Capture info -

This video was captured on November 10, 2019.

The demo was played on STeem and captured with OBS.


The demo was played on an Atari 1040 STE, TOS 1.62, 4MB.
A Best Electronics ST Monitor to VGA cable was used, connected to an OSSC 1.6 (processing the video in Line4x mode), with the output being captured by a Startech USB3HDCAP.

Video was edited with Shotcut.
