my pleasure to be of service. I also like the challenge of having to put as much as possible within a small range of memory and time to deadline. Tried to make a tune without too much intro and switching "tempo" a lot to make it less obvious when the tune repeats. Do feel welcome to ask me again ;-)

A number of issues have been identified with this release which was rushed out in time for Edison without sufficient testing. We're working on these issues at the moment and will have a new release soon.

Great work, Salator and friends and of course, competitors.

Confirm crashes reported by Didi and iAN also on real hw when launching part 2 not first, old C64(407)/1541-II no matter if with AR or vanilla. But sh... happens especially under pressure, looking 4wd to 101% and till then will enjoy this release anyway.

Part 2 seems to crash quite often if not run as first.

Menu handling is not that intuitive. Additional selection start with RETURN and selection by keyboard and joystick would have been nice.

Otherwiese: The Scroller looks great!

Phew! I'm glad the higher value is the correct one! ;-)
No offence taken! (See what I did there?! ;-)

CeriX, you are of course correct, the gfx should read 87 points. Sorry about that.
User Comment

... and there's a typo either in the demo or in the forum post announcing the results! My Oneliner part got 87 points in the forum post and 67 in the screenshot of the demo menu! ;-)

Not that it would change anything... It's just the tester in me demanding correctness! ;-)

Bugger... well the testing wasn't extensive but it ran many many times on x64-2.4 and on my 64c without issue.

hmm, Black magic seem to not exit cleanly, sometimes menu crashes after being restarted, sometimes not but loading part 2 after part 1 leads to a crash, at least on vice x64sc and hoxs.

Liked Black Magic most!

Very nice release. Too bad the contributions were limited (myself and the rest of the scene to blame). CeriX did some cool work not to mention the others.

I'd like to add my personal thanks to Pal and Scarzix for coming to the rescue and saving this demo from coder gfx by me and the threat of Slators old sids. Great work guys. Thanks so much.

Congratulation with getting the DOTY out and it got to be super. Thanx for the warm words, it was really nice to help. Conjuror did a super menu-screen here!
