Excellent stuff!!!

And thx for sharing the "making of" of the party version. Was wondering how you set up the different projectors so the "inner" borders were hidden -> Vice+AVI-mixing-Tools to the rescue ;)

Isn't this a clear signal for the still acitve hw inventors to go for a proper video mixing gadget?? *hinthint* :)

As I see it they released a video at the party, which won the wild compo. Thus we have the file already, and the demo might even be relevant to this database as there is C64 code involved in making the visuals. Changing this entry to related release as is in fact can't be played on a C64, or is there a better option?

The best way to sync it would be to use a 128D and VDC. It will be able to output a 640x400 screen in hires. You can run the 8502 at 2Mhz and use the 1571's 6502 at 2Mhz with the internal BUST mode to transfer bytes async as it does the maths, and while the VDC's DMA moves stuff on screen. But you only have 128K of RAM so it might not all fit..

The release date, achievement, and released at entries will need to be fixed once the download is available as this isn't the same production as shown at the party.

that basically means this entry is wrong - no such c64 demo was released in the compo.
User Comment

We released a video at the party. Of course we have the demo but that not the same as in the video because it has buggy/unfinished SIDs.

But the version released in the compo then. Was it never released? Or was it the video that was released? If so we already have the file. The future files you will add will not be the same as the ones you released at the party.

Please be patient. We would like to fix music in this weekend. (Other fixes and optmizations done already.) In the video version the sound fixed via sound editor and added to video as MP3. Vincenzo said "It's hard to compose music in 12 channel" So please be patient for some days! Thanks

Some have thought about creating a synqed more than one machine before, I have thought about it many times! R E S P E C T to you for just doing it! A great demo with a idea in the core that is Quad great! So cool to see this... very nice! Thank you all for the demo!

Very cool on the syncing of all 4 CPU's
Be real cool to see 2 C128s in 80 col with 2 Monitors with the C64 Emulating then 2 C64 40 Col screens projected on each monitor but the monitors would need to be 1 on top of the other! (Still seems like 1 heck of a feat!.

Nice YouTube Video! One that we can finally say we have seen a lot but Quad Core beats them hands down! Have fun!

Although the idea of using more than one C64 isn't entirely new, I love this execution. Kudo's for this release!

Love it! Have been toying with the idea, but nothing ever came of it. Kudos for actually doing it! Looking forward to the production info. Oh, and a high resolution video version would be great!

Download link and instructions on how to run it on 4 C64s, please. Even if I need to buy 4 projectors. :)

When we did this 26 years ago, we couldn't sync better then: press space at the same time... Glad that it is still that :)
