All those unreleased stuff, thx 4 sharin.

Though it was already shown in that onefiler, I like the last part very much, bracause it reminds me of what we doodled in our note books in school in the late 80s/early 90s. :)

:-) Thanks!
@TWW: I didn't speak english that time at all, sorry for that awful english.

@iAN CooG: somewhere back in 1992 or 1993 I saw an Amiga 500 demo at one of my friends. There was a part in that demo (which was quite similar to Unreal/Future Crew's scroller - I have just seen on Youtube) where I could see a beautiful dot scroller. I wanted to create a similar one. I have to mention that, my version is not a real dot scroller, it's much more a simple DYCP. (But I need to check my old code, I can't remember exactly and I haven't seen that code for 18 years or so.:))

I did not mention in my previous post but now I could identify a part of code which is definitely not mine. There is a DYCP in 'UNFORESEEN PART1' which was not related to my - so to say - intellectual properties. ;)
Anyone, who has any idea to the credits to this DYCP scroll?
Well, the interesting part is that, I have created that DYCP scroll on my own but I always failed with the synchronization and with the sprite multiplexer. I found an unfinished version with my own crappy code; as far as I remember, I spent numerous days to fix it but I couldn't; finally I 'copied' a working version. :)

There is an interesting part in the absolutely minimalist ' Unforeseen '. You can see a part in that where a short text appears in a 16x16 chars box, created with vectors. The vector routine is mine, I spent weeks (!) to understand the logic behind the vectors and doing it without having the ability to dividing numbers other than two. It's a very slow one but at least, it's mine. :P

Oldschool, the way I like it!

May I suggest a English course though :-)

"1....4.BY.1.DYCP" reminds me of the dot scroller in Unreal/FutureCrew for some reason =)

This demo remained unfinished, so if you press space in the last part you will get an error as a result. ;)
I have found two parts on my old workdisks which were planned to be added to Unforeseen Open parts but that time I got my PC. Well, I'm pretty sure in that I don't really need to write you any further explanation here... :)
Unfortunately both parts are in a very buggy status so I decided to excude it from here. Probably I will fix them and upload them separately.
