@dr.j: Seemingly it is a small satellite called wren:

Developed by Paul Koycla:

The intro itsel is most probably stored on a chip on the satellite.

I also read "RISTAR" at first, but then realized that some members must have quite the group to form the new group called T, whereas the remaining ones stayed in RISTAR.

@TheRyk: This Crackintro its Part of the Wildcompo because its just a part in a mass of details, main focus is the launch of a Satellite and Hardware design from Sketch done by Paul.

I can assure you it is a real C64 intro since I captured it for the guys in TRSI from a real C64. The saturation has been touched up on the editing table (not by me), and that's why the palette may look a bit unusual to you.

Really nice! Its always cool to see something so unexpected. To me, you could have misspelled the name and programmed the intro in basic - Thats not the focus of this production. Its the idea and doing it that counts. (Btw. I like the logo). Now, do you press space to continue and is there a hidden part somewhere?

PS: though I theoretically see the point in "RISTAR" comments on logo, some groups are that famous that you have to focus on reading it wrong no matter how "misreadable" it might be ;)

this is pretty neat & stylish stuff!

only mystery (after file has landed in orbit) remaining is why this was classified "wild demo" or was being out ouf space till dead line the wild thing about it? ;)

What a wacky cool idea, however I don't really get this or miss some details. So there is a 10k intro being transmitted from a satellite. That *IS* cool, but how can it be verified? Also the intro shown on youtube does not look like a C64 intro, it looks more DTV to me. The blue of the logo is not a typical C64 blue (might be an emulator or video capture thing), but it also has a very smooth logo transition/fader that I believe is not possible on a 64 for lack of colours. Is this manipulated in the video (look at e.g. 4:28)? Please upload the demo itself, if it is a C64 demo.

I know they put the T in the R somehow but it reads like "Ristar" which is a nice Megadrive game. ;)

The Dr.J: The release is said to orbit Earth, transmitting it twice a day for about 20 years.

its cool to have some c64 code up there, but it doesnt make this intro any better.

Now someone has to build a proper satellite reciever equipment (lft!) and grab this release, and also prove that it actually exists in SPACE! :D
