My first time as a sofa-scener and I get treated to this :D Several "Wow!"s were heard in my darkened living room that night. What can I say? The great parts outnumber the good. Amazing!

The opening screen! What a winner!

This was truly epic. Opening multiscreen pic was amazing, good to see return of amigaball, and yes, I remember the every 3 lines FLI discussion :)

Also, damn.. I really need to get around to releasing the chaos zoomer I wrote a while ago.. can't even remember how it compares to this one haha.

Hahaha, I agree! Next demo I’ll surely spend more time on music. This time I focused on pixeling and threw the soundtrack together the day before the deadline. I guess it shows. :)

You guys could invest in a bit more polished/well-thought music arrangement. Apart from that, insta-classic. Yay!

@Shadow: I screamed ”fyra gånger tre” at the compo several times!!! :D

Worthy winner for sure! The circle-gfx is awesome (and as someone already mentioned, really cool seeing the entire picture posted on FB, very enjoyable even on PC screen).
As always from Booze some real top-notch routines, the rotating scroller is superb!
Too bad it's frowned upon to have those little texts describing what effect you are seeing, because I have to admit that at the party I totally missed the 3-line-FLI - I just thought it was nice that someone dared to bring back good old 4x4 effects, and a good-looking one at that! :)

@B.Röst: Coming from you this means ALOT. Still I have a feeling of cheating by feeding you with sausages and beers. Kinda like buying that comment. ;)

The intro is awe-inspiring, setting the stage for an onslaught of awesome complicated routines. Somebody has to be the best, and, well, that is clearly you. One is almost tempted to quit coding altogether and start playing Skyrim instead, but... nah. Got to keep pushing on. If I keep at it for another 20 years, maybe, just maybe I can reach this level of excellence. Highly unlikely though.

you know It must be an impressive gfx or effect when DK comments. :) no offense my old friend ;)

but actually it's no wonder. Dane's circle pic in intro is just masterpiece (saw it in a full circle one on FB lately - just WOW!)
and the scroller DKs mentions - OSOM!
I like this demo more and more with every seeing. it lacks some in the design department but hey... it's still BD!
more Mirage and JB next time plz!
Dane music is just spot on - like always!

<Dane> I’m a musician. :D

you are a musician who's not! :) great demo!! 10/10 for the gfx, 9.9/10 for the rest.

@DK: Yes, the colourful zoomscroller charset is mine. (No sprites used, as some might have thought, and no bitmap either, just 3 colours with 2 colours changed on some lines)
User Comment
Submitted by DeeKay on 1 July 2019
@mirage: that zoomscroller charset wasn't yours either? I could've sworn it was!...
@dane: Awesome pixelwork on the intro-circle!
User Comment
Submitted by DeeKay on 1 July 2019
So nice, unfortunately way too short! ;-) Some real killer effects in there (rotating scroller, colorful zoomscroller, ring intro, Amiga Ball vector), but they weren't as nicely presented as you'd expect from Booze (or as that awesome intro made you expect!). Also, I just don't like fresnel zoomed effects! ;-)

@Digger: The part is precalced by a tool I wrote that emits clear instructions to the c64 exactly what to clear and copy and when to update the double buffer. This script is split into chunks save on disk. To make the picture having a different begin and ending while still be a full circle is just a change of pics half way in my tool. The c64 doesn’t care what is streamed into memory. And it help us not having to code a fader. The idea came just hours prior to the compo actually and Dane fixed a tail and I stenciled the head clear.

I just realised that the intro logo is actually impossible to draw in 2D, as it wraps as a spiral!

@Dane: Would you share some work stages and tech behind how have you solved it?

@Carrion and Icon

Thanks. I spent maybe 60-70 hours on the gfx (most of those the last hours before the deadline...) and having it mistaken for something from Mirage is surely a great compliment. And there is no doubt he is still the master! I’m a musician. :D

@Bob: Maybe it wasn’t the demo you were expecting but then again, this is more of an in-between party demo. :)

compyx, extra colors are a mere change of 1 colreg imho.

For something with 'scrollers' in the name I expected more scrollers. Very decent demo though, I'll have some fun thinking about how I'd do the zoom scroll without looking at the code. (MC charset + $d017 stretcher would be my guess)

@mirage oops silly me then.
@dane sorry ;)

But the pic has some mirage-ish vibe to it ... IMO
Greta work in any way and Dane Gfx FTW

Great stuff! A well deserved first place in the demo compo. The intro and the colorful zoomer are topnotch.
Dane: how many hours of work did take to complete the intro graphics?
User Comment
Submitted by Mirage on 30 June 2019
I didn't even know I did anything for this demo. Good to know :)

The awesome big picture was done by Dane, who is every bit as good (if not better) as pixeling as I am :)

Nice stuff in here, however I did expect more after several years of absence, I hope you guys where holding it back for X-2020 Blast!
Some recycled stuff though ;) sad that this char zoomer thingy took off the edge for mee just as Oswald pointed it out not my cup of tea. Yet the best demo from the Party so congratulations for a well deserved #1

hmm no comment from Mixer about recycled stuff ?? odd. ;)
