This is fucking amazing! Really good stuff...and the tune is really fun, made me happy. One of those demos I appreciated more the 2nd time I watched it.

There ought to be a wiki for demo effect names :)

Mace: The second effect is called Silents Bars, named after Silents, who introduced it on Amiga.

Nice twister!

@ Testa: WTF are 'silents bars'?

Amazing that so much can be jam packed into 4k. The kefrens bars are incredible, very wide and smooth (how many are there?). A very impressive effort by Krill.

Nice music, reminds me of a tune by Boogaloo (the first few chords sound pretty similar).

great job on filling the whole 64k of memory with data in just 4k... i've just been catching up on the whole 4k scene, but this one seems to top them all... great job!

to defend myself: the kefrens bars are the widest made until now, the silents bars are the first with 40 chars width and good accuracy (so already 2 records, not counting the twister). the slogan didn't fit into 4 sprites, also it's hard to surpass myself (can't top "hat trick 4krill") and keep impressing people over and over with 4k shit ;) maybe you just miss the good old plushkunde, which just didnt fit into it, just like some further design planned in the beginning. it is not unfinished. i just ran out of space, and considering the twister effect (which is the best on this machine until now imho) using a sine at 3 bytes accuracy and other nifty shit, i can be glad having some design at all =) it's all about setting priorities, right, mr oswald? ;)

It ends up bad, I only liked the twister very much, the others have been seen before,. and yes, the thing that is missing is the slogan "Normal is boring" at the end :) (Seriously,. some more. It's a bit unfinished)

A bit disappointing after all those great 4ks from Krill, great routines but something is missing.
