I really like the petscii-artworks. Also the last scene is nice. It will go backwards in warp-mode.

Finally the problem is found - Spider you're right!
It doesn't works with JiffyDOS or a 2nd device! What a pity! :(
Action Replay MK6, 1541 Ultimate II, CMD RAMLink are no problem. :)
So i could watch the demo and enjoy the great effects now. And yes - the MAYDAY Crew in PETSCII are very funny! Hahahahaha...
But please use a better fastloader in the future - thanks! ;)

I've been thinking of using this same animation. What do you guys think is this acceptable?
User Comment
Submitted by DATA-LAND on 1 March 2016
@Henning & Spider: Switch off JiffyDOS is a "no-go". New software shouldn't be incompatible. But i'll try it again without JiffyDOS and only one device like in the 80's.

The most beautiful things about this demo are those PETSCII works. I can not get enough of them. In fact, I wouldn't have thought, that I find myself liking PETSCII so much. You did a great job in that part. It clearly stands out and I hope it will inspire others to push that concept forward.

I actually tested it on jiffydos + ultimate before release, and it works fine.

@DATA: mh, could be the jiffy dos. give it a try with ultimate without jiffy enabled. we tested it on various systems with different cartridges and expansions, but afaik not with jiffy. oh, and be sure to have only one device on the serial bus.

DOH! love the Simpsons members! btw. the endpart animation looks cool if warped too, the it goes reverse, but I guess that depends on your CPU's warp max.
