hedning, I love this! Glad to have somehow inspired this conversion too :)) The GEM font and (new) Topaz are quite alike, really!

CRRN: c64 rom font was taken from the 8 bit atari, its almost identical, and atari was like 3 years earlier. edit:googled the case, only lowercase :)

hedning: that most likely puts all atari computers into one category (including XE/XL, VCS etc) ... eg on pouet there are about 50 ST prods for 2011

Tom-Cat: My view on the matter comes from this analysis: http://blog.subsquare.com/state-of-the-demoscene-in-numbers/

Well, since I follow both ST and Amiga scenes I disagree about ST one being bigger than Amiga, Amiga scene is still quite active while there is so little ST stuff coming out I wouldnt even call it microscopic. But C64 scene still blows away all other, by far !

It's very similar to the Y-expanded C64 ROM charset, but not equal. As it's released outside compo, it's no problem.

it's not so massively different from the font doubled in intros like the very small pulsar and nato ones though ? Pulsar Intro

Haha, yeah. It's also great that it takes less space than a Guru Meditation. I have seen more of those than teh bombs in my days.

good... considering how often i saw it, it must be one of the most important things in this charset =)

Groepaz: It's there.. somewhere. ;)

Sixx: Of course there were pieces of ASCII-art for the Atari, but the Amiga scene was bigger back then. (Nowadays the Atari scene is microscopic, but still bigger than the Amiga scene. ;) C64 is the all time winner, of course.)

hedning: Were there ever any ASCII art for the Atari ST, like instead of crack intros, packs etc? Google gives no info, seems like AMIGA were superior on all aspects.. (MIDI sux)

My answer to Topaz 64. ;) Of course put outside the compo, as it is a copy of the Atari ST GEM medium resolution font.
