his book demostrates the usage of visual Runes. This includes switching to graphic mode,
drawing lines, programming the VGA color palette, and animating the palette.
he color effects are done by shifting the palette. In this way the screen has to be
drawn only once (at startup) and then during every tick a different part of the color
palette becomes active. This is very effective since only a few instructions are required
to reprogram the palette while redrawing the screen would take lot of time.
he following source code is commented in German and is using German names for labels,
procedures, and variables. But most procedures used here can be found in the "Visual
Effect Runes" book where they are in English.
