  (-  Phoenix[Hornet])

  BTW, 'buzi finnek' means gay Finns in Hungarian :) (- rod)

"Pure" by Quad (The Party '98)
  /setup	set video mode.
  /save		save all data to disk
  /load 	reload all data
  There are no "hidden command line switches", although the infofile
  hints at it.  They have planned some hidden messages, but they had to
  remove them due to size limitation when decided to put one more effect,
  the last raytrace part in the intro. (- Sarix[Quad])

"Rare" (final version) by Genesis (Euskal'99) *new*
  Use parameters -h and -hidden to get hidden messages. Type
  "rare -maribel clara" to watch a randomized version of the intro with
  different textures. (- SunmaN)

"Saturday" by Spirit new Style (X '97)
  -debug          debug mode? Esc to quit
  -MagicMode      change screen resolution
  -write4kb       ??
  (- Phoenix[Hornet])

"Sink" by Pulse (The Party '97)
  -tgas           saves pictures (look strange; problem with the code?)
  -save           saves precalculated data
  -load           uses saved data
  WARNING: -save has been known to write over FAT, so be careful. (- rod)

"Slide" by Triple (Bush Party 5)
  Press 'S' (shift+s) when the intro asks for the gus port for saving all
  the textures, and 'L' (shift+l) for loading data from disk.
  (- Sarix[Quad])

"Tahma" by Recreation (TDMC 2)
  Type "Tahma jee" for choosing the screen resolution of the demo.
  (It's written in the textfile.) (- rod)

"Theta" by Quad (Wired '98)
  Press 'S' or 'L' (in upper case) when the intro asks you about the gus
  port number, it saves or loads data (music and textures) on/from disk.
  (- SunmaN)

Other Tricks

If you have the EGG 2 music disk by Kosmic and Airframe by Prime try this
 one. Go into EGG and *start playing* one of the songs.  Press ESC after a
 few patterns, quit and then go and run Airframe. Lo and behold, Airframe
 is now running at twice the speed you are used to.  Ditto for Cyboman II.
 (- Maverick[Serenity], taken from DemoNews #88, April 30, 1995)
 [If I recall correctly I tried this and it didn't work.. maybe Mav just
 has a funny-acting GUS :) -Phx]

"303" by Acme
  Any key you press will jump an effect, you can watch them
  until the musicsync catches on. (- ps & d-lee[exceed])

"Avena Kinetik" by Distortion (1995)
  There's a 3ds ascii file at the end of the exefile, which you
  can modify to change the object in the demo. I don't know
  whether it is the secret part or not but it's silly. (- rod)

"Cyboman 2" by Complex (Party 4)
  If you run Cyboman 3 by Plant, then run this intro, the shading in
  Cyboman 2 will go from gouraud to flat. (- Trixter[Hornet])

"Dance, Move, Shake" by Kosmic (1997)
  For fun, change the speed of DMS.S3M from 4 to 2 and watch the demo fly.
  If you're bored, you might want to try changing it to 8 too. :)
  (- Phoenix[Hornet])

"Dyslexia" by Threesome (NAID'96)
  Run Dyslexia on the following days and the wormhole graphic will change:
    10/31 - Halloween
    12/25 - Christmas
    12/14 - Ms. Saigon's birthday
     1/21 - Kneebiter's birthday
     3/12 - Mobydisk's birthday
      4/7 - Tronster's birthday
  (- Kneebiter[Threesome])

"Elektroniks" by Doomsday (Abd '97)
  This demo lets you compose your own demo using the same exefile.
  Download "DSYS33.ZIP" (available at
  for the description of the scripting language.
  It can be used in "I Wish I Was a Skijumper", "Boost", "Stigma" and
  "Off" as well. (- MRI[Doomsday])

"Heartquake" by Iguana (ASM '94)
  If you rename HEARTQ.004 to some .EXE (except HEARTQ) and run it, you will
  be able to fly around in the landscape part forever (see keys above).
  Also, the "Iguana's Disco" guy doesn't dance (no music?).  This EXE ends
  at the morphing part, so hitting space bar during that will crash the demo.
  (- Kneebiter[Threesome])

"Latex" by Blank (Symp '96)
  If you press Escape at the beginning of the 'World Domina' face part,
  you'll then be shown the inside of the head, which still manages to morph
  into the inflating/exploding one.
  (- Phoenix[Hornet])

"Magic View" by Dubius (Abd '96)
  Search for 'configuration' in mview.exe and you will find the configuration
  file of the first part of the demo. Now you can change the resolution (logos
  will be messed) and some other things. Config files for other parts lies
  just one after another. (- Yarpen[Substance])

"Stars" by Nooon (ASM '95)
  If you have a dual-monitor system (Hercules+VGA), the
  Hercules display will show a Nibbles-type game which you can play.
  (- Cool-Hands)

"Wish" by Majic 12 (In Bloom '93) *new*
  If Wish doesn't work on your machine and says "File error", try to
  write byte 75h at offset 21Ah in the file wish.exe. (- SunmaN)
"Xtal" by Complex (1995)
  You can remove the 50Hz mode by writing byte C3 into
  offset 10C50E in the XTAL.EXE, but that pretty much spoils the demo.
