Ultimate Screenfader thread

Hello, my name is Anonym, and I am addicted to screen faders. You know those (sometimes not so) little effects that get you from the loading screen into the demo. I'm not looking for a self-help group at this point, but rather a collection of the best screen faders. I searched far and near but haven't found one yet?

Which productions have memorable screen faders that you like?

I'll actually kick this off with one fader where I don't recall the production it was in, it was an early demo... You typed run and a little man (about a cursor high) would come in and push the screen to the side so it was replaced by black characters. Anyone recall the product this one was in? I want to say it actually was a compunet demo, but I cannot recall for sure.

That one is really cool, like it. Next step up to maintain the colours of the text on the BASIC screen ;-)

I saw it on the compo and thought the effect is done in the beamer. There was a lot of pause before the demo started so I thought the beamer guys got bored and playing around :)

Thank you for these.

Deus Ex Machina : Great, even in the sideborder and maintaining character colours. Gotta love that. Also like the monitor turning off effect after the intro part.

Decade 100% : Yep the laser burning the logo is great with the sparks. Would have been even better if the depacker would have not had any effects. The transition to the Smash Logo could have been done nicer in my eyes.

Artillery 100% : Tetris style pieces to fall of the screen and reveal a logo. Beautiful.

Continuum : So cool, sideborder too. Bonus points for that as always :) Had to watch it a couple of times, as it's so fast.

The Last Truckstop 3 : Ninja star. Stuff zooming in is great, too. Man and I love this Last Ninja style intro, too.

Looked at some more Shape demos for this topic specifically and this one really stood out for me:

The Doors of Perception

Converting the BASIC screen into hires, using sprites to set the picture over it and then dropping the remaining characters. Wow.

not only that, it scrolls while keeping 40 char wide screen and hires mode :)

Actually hadn't seen that one yet, all in all a very nice demo. Love the basic screenfader through the sideborder, looks cool. Thank you.

The one in the latest Atlantis release is cool, too. I like how smooth the screen moves to the back and how it's integrated into the beginning of the demo:

Don't know if this counts, but the anim-part of the intro of ES1RA is a really nice one I think.

Ok, if you stick to "what happens to the basic screen", then there's "only" a col-fade out. But the animation kicks in rather close to it;)

Ah, just realized that I did some fade-out from basic screen myself, in The Other Lines (though it's just for a picture display, for sure not on par with the other examples given earlier!).
