Smasher: Yes, of course all borders! Top/bottom only would look silly indeed. :)

This is exactly the kind of intro I was expecting for the compo! Well done!

upper/lower borders you mean? they were open at the beginning in a early build, but then I didn't like you could see 4&G fully and F&C cut.
the best would have been to open side borders too, ...done by another coder! :)

Simple yet effective, great minimalist design.
But it really really misses open borders.

aah, that's how I normally do, since the good old times when I let cruelcrunch, byteboiler and sledge run the whole night. :) but in this case there's no sample-game.prg to link, so the memory between $2800-$cfff must be untouched. there's a discussion about that in the forum I think.

that's irrelevant, when actually exomizing the intro + the crack, you would exomize EVERYTHING in a single command =)
exomizer sfx $1810 intro-1810-ff3f.prg yourgame.prg,$2800 -o final.prg
and prolly you even could have yourgame.prg already exomized with -Di_load_addr=$2800, so there's no need to relocate it but directly uncrunched by issuing jmp $2800
But what the fuck do I know, the rules of this compo don't even take into consideration real world introlinking :)

I tried to exomize file $0801-$27ff and file $e000-$ffff at a single command line and the memory between the two gets zeroe'd. but it could be I did something wrong.

I don't really see the need to exomize it twice, the mem can be exomized as a whole and all what counts it's the amount of memory the intro actually uses and just don't trash the remaining memory for preserving the eventual cracked game linked to it.
The tune could have been relocated to $0800-17ff safely, now that area is wasted the the 2nd exomized layer, and you would have kept $e000-efff free for the eventual linked crack.

thanks all for the very positive comments!
Intro was ready for ICC but not for the 8k compo. this how I did to make it compliant to compo rules: relocated sid to $e000, moved all data after it, so between $f000 and $ffxx. exomized it, memory used $0801-$17xx. so started to code at $1800 and put charset at $2000-27ff. exomized it again. so the intro is packed twice :)
not rocket science for sure, but maybe that info is useful for someone who decides to compete.

Yeah... according to "the group name frame has to stay in 4 shades of grey": on +4 you can do 50 shades ;)

I like this sort of smooth parallax from the above!

I spent more time moving memory to fit the compo rules than to code the intro itself...
