The soundtrack! I just have to say it again. All that codez is nice and all... but the soundtrack! I have been listening to it for endless hours since LCP. It blew me away then and it still does. Dane proves yet again that he is one of the greatest. Much love!

Dear booze... I had a joy looking at this demo again today... you are true heroes of the c64... love you all the way to the demo-compo at x2012! It will be wrestling time and we sure do love it! In all ways it will be a great party and we in offence do really look forward to meet all you boozers again... let us create one hell of a show, all of us... groups or no groups, let us just put on a show... c64 all the way... R.I.P Jack Tramiel - for you and for us we will create good and great c64 demos once again! We will put in the effort and the hours needed to do a great show, for you and for all of us! Us, the different kind of people... we will be strong this year at x... the whole c64 scene will be strong, together, no matter what!

Jack Tramiel
Your creations stole years of our life, they still do.
You made us hide from both the sun and rain, left us all staring at the electric blue.
you poisened our minds, we remained true.
you made us suffer and struggle, all on the electric blue.

...for that we LOVE you. R.I.P.

love it... makes me feel 20 years younger. my fave is this blocky scroller part, mr.cursor's game-on-intro cames to my mind :)
deekay: hm... i am pretty sure that there has been flicker in the late 80ies. not exactly for the scene, but i remember georg brandt doing mci stuff at magic bytes those days.

I love you HCL and Dane. Your demo really threw me back to the early 90's at the LCP party. Top stuff! Love the style, and how the effects mutate into extremes and go beyond the old coding tech.

@DeeKay: I'm not sure if Mace really loves it that much... :)

This is pure pr0n! ;-) I know a certain medieval weapon that will *love* this, hehe!...
I some way I like this more than EoD, since it's more varied on the effects - and there just seems to be loads more! Thanks for the Zardax remix, one of my all-time faves - together with the proper Elysion part to go with it! ;-D

P.S: Why no love for Crest? Only LCP attendees?
P.P.S: Funny enough I've had the perspective FPP idea very many years ago, too, when thinking of how to use VIC-tricks in new previously unexplored ways! ;-)
P.P.P.S: Flicker-gfx in 1991? I don't think so.. Funpaint II had just been released, and didn't catch on in the scene until late 1992!

Fantastic track! Great homage. Shame about the logos, but a nice production indeed.

Awesome code! The perspective thingies were great. Dot ball and hidden line vector objects, too. Quite an unfamiliar feeling to have this kind of oldskool look and feel in a trackmo, but it was very entertaining.

Watching it again I liked the dot parts the most and the outstanding vector part.

Resource guys might know what I'm talking about, implementing a 'Jodie tool' in realtime. :D

Heavy lifting on the code side. And i like the style too. The retro logos are actually massive :) The perspective effects (both of them) are visually stunning. Congratulations!

first of all, thank you for continuing productivity even after you have nothing to prove anymore. :) congrats with your 20th anniversary. it's really strange to see an oldschool themed demo from you guys. i'm not completely satisfied with the overall quality (logos, graphics etc.) but as a coder, i adore the technicial background. some kickass stuff! starfield and dot sphere part are amazing. also $d016 and color distorted graphic looks very original. we want to celebrate your 25th, 30th, ... years while you are still active, don't forget that! :)

Happy birthday guys and thanks for the personal greetings!

I especially like the soundrack, a tribute to the early 90's musicians. It seems you have borrowed some other parts of the concept. For instance from: http://csdb.dk/release/?id=751.

Great concept for a birthday demo, oh and Happy birthday! Love the oldskool style with scrollers everywhere, especially when coupled with impressive effects like the DYPP'er, transparent rasterbars, dot ball record, inconvex line vector and VIC magic which I have to look at a bit closer to realize whether I'm supposed to be impressed. The tribute tunes complete the concept. And thanks again for saying that CML should have won, although I don't agree - it should of course have been Mahoney.

when it comes to the plotball, you forgot to take the ball into account which was coded by caprix / oxyron for one of the coma lights (i think it was cl5). 2-framed maybe, but count half of them, and it may still be enough to be named (i may be wrong here, its just how i remember that plotball - and didnt check it out again), hehe. whatever, i liked your demo - it triggers the oldschool-fan inside of me, and some of the effects are absolutely awesome. some graphics are good (some are less, even for 1991 style) - and the music kicks ass. happy birthday to everyone in booze design, and dont forget to bring a demo for x'12 ;-)

On the party my favourite demo was Camelot. But coming home and watching all releases again, I have to say this is the deserved winner. There is so much cool stuff in this. My favourite is the concave line vector with morphing. Well done guys. To the starfield, what was I thinking? Lets make a starfield fullscreen, nice looking, colorful and visible on the bigscreen. I think it worked. ;o) And you cant complain about the nw2 endpart. I gave you enough time. My first version was done in 95 or 96 and burned in the legendary oxyron partyplace fire. So 12 Years should be enough to code this. But your version looks great. I like the more dynamic movements. Is your interpolation linear or perspective corrected? By the way, fantastic remix of one of my all time favourite musics from the Zardax/Origo.

Happy birthday, Boozers! A very solid demo from you guys, but still it leaves you with a feeling that this is just a "resting step" on the way to X-2012.. I'm sure you'll blow us all out of the water there :)

You guys have come a long way since the days of Nail in Foot. This demo contains some snappy oldschool fx, scroller power and some cool audio (esp. love the scortia cover). Happy birthday guys!

Very nice oldschool effect compilation. Actually there are some very hard stuff included as well... Loved the end part music. It's a relief that this time someone else was set on the pedestal. ;)

It was great to meet you guys once again, especially to talk to Dane and to see the picture right in the start of the party!
The effect is really great in that hires-border part. Archmages fantastic fast work on the logo "1991", pixel by pixel in Project One.
And the generous architectural discussion with Pernod/HZ.

Although there were some parts which simply disappeared on the projected surface like the starfield, some of those old demoeffects was pushed in a really nice way, such as the Antic logo, the double logo ontop of AFLI rasterpatterns and the Magic logo ontop of the tiled pattern background.

Polished audio. Great party pic.
Highlights for me were the rasters over 'Dead scene?' pic, and the 3D x3 Magic Logo part. The End is pretty neat also.


It’s difficult to decide which demo should have won LCP 2011.
The following 3 demos would have made my Top 3:

1991 - Booze Design
Pimp My Snail - Camelot
2011 A Press Space Odyssey  - Offence

If I was voting on one single effect that wowed me the most, then Pimp My Snail would be the winner with the many Bobs part. If I was voting on best mix of ideas and graphics, 2011 A Press Space Odyssey  would be winner. If I was voting on the best demo with the most amount of impressive parts, then 1991 would have been winner.
