Thanks for taking the time to post some feedback guys. I've noticed it says the external link above might be broken, but it's working fine for me. I'll take a look and see what that's an issue.

@eLK: Good comment on expanding the scroller in to the side borders. This was something that crossed my mind as I was working on it. I also wanted to move both the rasters and the dycp scroller up and down. But I was at the point where if I did that, I'd also make it a larger wave too. I'd then spend more time and add some variations to the colour cycling on the scroller and credits. If I did that I'd spend more time and perhaps have the greets text scroll (as there were more groups I wanted to include) and so on ;) So I decided to get it out and move onto something new. I love a good dycp scroller though, so do have plans to expand this and move it in to the borders (+make it bigger) for a future release :)

@Shine & @Zarky: Well spotted! The pattern was manually made and does look off compared with a natural set of sine values. I started with a clean table but wanted to make it's movement a bit different. I didn't achieve the result I was after, but never reverted back to the original values.

@Dr.J: I asked Johan specifically for an old skool style logo on this one. I love the retro style (as you can probably tell from my intros so far ;)

The style takes me way back and I get all fuzzy inside. :-) I do agree with Shine tho. I suspect the sine is manually made, and thus gets a bit constant in the middle. Of course this could be by design and the result intentional. Regardless it has a good feel to it, and that I like. :-)

i would like to point that the logos of JSL sometimes remind me the good old
logos from '88-'89 , they are designed in old fashioned style

I like this intro, but what about this sine table for the logo. It's only me, who is seeing something wrong swinging? ;)

My second C64 release, this time another old skool inspired intro - 3172. It started life as a cracktro, but ended up having more and more tweaks added until more closely resembled an old style intro.
