History of milestone demo effectst

Guys,

I am just gathering information for an upcoming exhibition about the 35th anniversary of our beloved C64. To show people what can be achieved when sticking and exploring hardware to the fullest, I would like to make one panel that shows the most significant demo effects/formats. Here's what just came to my mind:
* sideboarder sprites - Honey/1001 Crew (1986 ?)
* FLD
* TECH-TECH
* DYCP
* FLI
* Double SID

Is there somewhere a list like this.I would love to have them in chronological order and off course give credit to the right people. Would be more than happy, if you could help me out on this. I am a little strandet here.

Thanks a million.

There is another list, which had more entries, but I cannot recall the site.

Great! That really helps. Now I can start a discussion, which effect you think is worth mentioning if we only take 5-8 out of it. ;)

cheers.

Assuming the point is to show things that the c-64 hardware was not intentionally designed for, but what the people have learned over the time: the list has side border opening, vsp, 4 and 8-bit sampleplay, software graphics modes and fast disk and tape-loaders.

Software graphics modes includes all the techtechs, fli, fld, fpp. etc.

double SID is cool for sure, but fits in the list as much as 4-joystick adapter.
I'd add "Bob's bobs", whatever that thing was at last X... :)

and considering Dual SID isn't a creation of "the scene" but a homebrew project released in 1987 by Mark Dickenson and a commercial product released by Dr Evil Labs in 1988

Maybe "Double Sid" was meant to be "Double speed SIDs"??
