Wow, this is really nice plasma. :-)

Download doesn't work?

I checked some long time ago tested STE demos which had been reported to
have issues:

* Pixel Twin's Mental Hangover actually crashes Hatari:

Valgrind says:
==4016== Invalid write of size 1
==4016==    at 0x40264DC: memset (mc_replace_strmem.c:602)
==4016==    by 0x80D18DC: Video_InterruptHandler_HBL (video.c:1942)

==4016==    by 0x80B46C9: main (main.c:585)

(when it gets 4 bytes past the screen buffer, Hatari crashes)

* Songs of the Unexpected gets double bus error after playing the first song
   in the main demo for a while:

* Aura's Hifidelity dreams seems now fine:

* As does Hemoroids Necrosys (it's music is something truly
  horrible though):

* Delirious 3 crashes on startup:

* Once the actual demo starts:

  Bad taste dies to:
  Your Atari program just did something terribly stupid:

* Automation Banafisk seems to work:

* Parallax screen by Flash works now

* AFL pro fooball doesn't anymore freeze on startup:

  But there's some screen update/color issue between the game halves
  (when running a demo game) when panels from top & bottom are scrolled
  towards screen center.

* GGN's Kuovadis game (Daleks clone) dies at startup after screen goes blank
  and it tries to scan disk for mods.  I'm not sure where I got the program,
  GGN's page seems to be missing a link:
