A bit late, but I have to agree with DPL on this.. I think I'm going to start coding PAL, just doesn't seem to be that big an audience on NTSC these days..

Yeah, funny thing is that most of my personal top 2 or 3 hundred favorite PAL demos don't look pretty on my NTSC c64. Now that I have a PAL c64 too, I notice that they sound and look so much better on the real machine! I realize though, as a coder, if I want a larger audience for my demos, I should code for PAL first, then fix for NTSC if I have time :) even as an American coder. Now that I have the hardware, maybe that will happen. I can't speak for what T.P. may do of course, as it's his prerogative, and this release was his project.

Nice christmas greeting! Doesn't look pretty in PAL though so I'll have to watch it again in emu.

Nice. I bet it does look cute on that little CRT. I'm gonna have to procure one of those for myself soon :)
Although I'd rather have a PAL SX-64.

@Moloch: The name would be as listed on CSDB, or "Merry Christmas from FOE/KRX".


@GT.. If I used Time Crunch, you would have waited A couple more days. I'm not sure if there's a slower cruncher than that.

Moloch: I'd guess the name would be the former, and I would prefer that since it has both group abbreviations in it...but you'll have to ask The Phantom, since he headed this project.

I too am very happy about the many NTSC releases lately!

Hmm, eight NTSC releases in the span of five months ... very nice.

Question, is the title "Merry Christmas from FOE/KRX" or "Merry Xmas 2009"?

Greets going out to Geir Tjelta...creator of some of the most atmospheric tunes. Good for anything you might be into, from Satanic worship to typing opcodes directly into your cart. Seriously.. top shelf musix.

Geir...shhhhh! I got its' shots before we uploaded. ;)

Besides...with all that packing we know it has been through, you ought to be worried about worse things than swine flu.

Don't download. It got virus and swine-flu. ;-)

Sorry guys.. Had some problems with the packing.. Kept losing the borders when i removed the space bar routine.. Had to fix that.. Music corrupted using my packer, had to use another..

Anyway...

Have a great Christmas!!!!

This is nothing HUGE, just some wishful thoughts to a small number of those we know.

Probably the ISDN lines, no connection or something? Or the reindeers are still under its way? ;-)

You have to expect a little bait when you upload a screenshot and tell people to be patient. Been "waiting" for the file for about 1,5 hours now. Ho Ho... :-)

Merry Christmas by the way.

I even thought the processor run a bit faster in the us so that the crunch time would be less... Guess I were wrong about that!

He's doing it just to bait us...Phantom you bastard ;)

@GT: "How long does it take to crunch and pack in the US?" ..well, it's almost Christmas time, so there's a lot of fudge around, naturally!

I'm dying of impatience. Can hardly wait to see those sexy sprites move on my NTSC machine. Upload NOW! God damn it! How long does it take to crunch and pack in the US? :P

I just thought your comment was a little funny, Phantom. ;-)
