100% versions..? Party versions..? etc..?

So, I was wondering ...

Both "Delirious 11" and "X Marks the Spot" have the RESTORE key crash... and "X Marks" has a last minute glitch that crept in...

For myself I'd love to release a 100% version ... but I also kinda wouldn't - because doing so "dirties" the CSDB releases somewhat ... there'd then be something like an "X Marks Party Version" and "X Marks 100% Version" sullying the charts ........

I know Comaland had a 100% version, I can see it right now sat nicely at #2 in the charts ... but that version has more changed since the party version than what I'd likely do...

What do others think? Leave the demos alone and move on .. or go back and fix them.

The demo compo at Datastorm 2019 will be replaced by a restore pressing compo. Your entry will be expected to hook into the NMI vector, and the operator will hammer restore to drive the demo forward.

I'm adding secret parts to my next demo where if the RESTORE is pressed, and the demo manages not to crash, a picture of the party organisers "having fun together" will appear :-p

Sorry, but the compo rule "lameness is forbidden" will rule that possibility out.

Look out for our upcoming demo: 2021 - A Press Restore Odyssey. To be linked live at LCP.

Damn... well to be honest that rule rules me out entirely regardless ...

Quoting dano
Does anyone care for more than one drive on the bus in a democontext? I guess this happens far more often than anyone really pressing Restore in a demo.. ^^
At least two people care. :)

***WOOOOOW***

Finally:
- multiple drives on the bus allowed despite 2bit+ATN protocol (world-first)

That's a game changer... at least now I have to consider changing my game Pac It to use it... ;)

Extremely stunning!

@raistlin, obviously common sense is generally applied, so I'm pretty confident Mr.Ammo won't hammer any keys while entries are running on his compo machines ;)

on the other hand, the more I tell you not to think of a pink elephant...

Hmmm, we are discussing the restore bug but I haven't heard anybody about the on/off button bug yet. I am not a coder but I heard pressing it crashes demos too...

That's probably because there's a power switch, but not an on/off button. :)
