First time I saw that logo my jaw hit the floor; I had no idea the hardware was capable of anything that shiny. Left my c64 running all afternoon and just kept going back to gawp at it. Definitely raised the bar considerably.

re: FLI-editor Cybortech and Deekay.

Bit old thread, but anyway:

There was no editor. If I remember correctly CLF used a plain koala bitmap and then coded the rest of the colorinfo directly to memory using cartridge monitor. That is why the picture is relatively simple in comparison to his other painted art.

3-part oldskool scroller demo. As everyone knows I'm not that much into scrollers but it needs to be said that the colors and music on this one are very good.

which Hires-FLI editor used in this demo before Topaz' AFLI editor?

The large scrolling 3 colour font is really something. Without it, the demo would be quite forgettable.

When I made my first IAFLI picture in 91 (see: Das Schweigen der Lamer) using Cosmos' Hires Manager with a slightly self-modified AFLI-displayer that would interlace the two screens you could edit in the porgram. I thought I had invented a new graphicsmode (IFLI was all the new rage back then), I called it XFLI. When I joined Crest in 92 and told Crossbow about my "new" mode he said "that's old shit, Origo did that way back in 1990!" and he snailed me this demo. I was disappointed on one hand ('cause they beat me to it, even if it was just a year), and wowed on the other! ;-) Really beautiful! I do wonder what tool THEY used to make the IAFLI pic.. I'm guessing Triumwyrat used their own ECI Graphic Editor V1.0 for the stuff in Sonic Preview .

I made another IAFLI pic right after I joined Crest, it's that really colorful scrolling green logo used in Krestage ...

This demo really had a huge effect on people at Horizon's party 1990. Boys managed to combine a lot of style into this one! Great great demo.

When the demo was projected to screen in 1990 the CRT projector had such long afterglow that the scroller in the last part looked absolutely smooth, as did the colors. No flicker. I remember everyone in the audience going absolutely nuts at that moment.

To my knowledge this was the 1st afli as it is called now.

I think I have been watching those damn sharming colours for house and loaded this demo over and over again for 100s of times. It was really unbeliavable by that time!

I would give 11 of 10 if it was possible!!! This demo was so stunning at the time it was released and I just watched it again (ofcoz on real C64) and it just rulez! In fact it was one of those demos which helped me in my decision - should I move on to Amiga or stay on the C64? After this demo, the decision of course could only be: C64!!! Origo rules!

Crap, i thought i'd added a comment for this one already... i remember the first time i watched this demo; it was absolutely awesome stuff back then and still holds its own now, especially the intro and the middle part (which are also my favourite tunes).

If you only would have seen how the people at the HZ'90 party reacted to this demo. The roof was about to fly off. In the easter of 1990, this demo was simply amazing! After that party, everyone was talking about it.. -"man, did you see that demo with all the colours?".

A true classic demo, which took the 64 to new levels in terms of showing many colors!
Also the endpart starwars scroller is great.

@Zyron: Agreed. The problem is that ppl don´t growe up with the demos. They enter the scene in middle 90ths or even later and await all demos must look like a Pc clone.
Even demos from 1987 1988 are stunning even there had been effects never seen b4.
Later it is easy to copy em or even use em for ur own products.

Considering the year this was released, this is about as close to perfection as is possible.

Check out the resolution of the sprites in the endpart. Some serious multiplexing there...

First demo I saw from Origo.
I liked the code and musix a lot.
Especially Zardax became one of my top composers later on.
Mixer made an excellent remix of Anal-ogue,btw. ;)
