Not only the bug fixes I have talked about before, but brand new colour schemes for the fire effect as well.

Raz: We had 92 releases, and it made the pace a bit quicker. The compo lasted forever.. I am so honoured that you decided to release your demo at Gubbdata.. But still: Sorry that we did not wait long enough. G*P loves Camelot.

@Hedning: Yes, I would think so, but I have just watched the stream from Gubbdata, and this is actually where I discovered the issue - I think the projector shows a bit more (perhaps a char width) left border than my 1702 monitor. Unfortunately, that kinda make the effect looks unpolished, so that was a bit embarrassing for me.

I can also see, that I should have been a bit more clear on when to cut the demo - as only the first section was shown (not a big deal, but the audience missed out on the second set of colors + scroll texts). It goes through two stages of the grey screen, the first with the text "Raz/Camelot presents..." and the second "Presented at Gubbdata 2019" - and only after that it loops around - my bad for not explaining this better. And I can also see, that the pacing should have been a bit quicker for presenting at a compo =)

Well. I'd say a Commodore 1702 monitor should be considered some kind of standard. If it works there, it's perfect.

Gahh! I've just discovered that I have a left-sideborder bug in the scroller, that I could not see on my Commodore 1702 monitor. Oh well, on to make a version 1.1 bug fix release soon.

Hi All
This release marks my return to the scene after almost 25 years of absence (well, kinda, I've be active in Camelot behind the scenes for quite a while).

A few notes about "Gumbo":
1) First and foremost - please notice it's a 9kb(!) demo, and judge it on that premise =)

2) It is meant as a "feel-good"/"mood-demo", and it is indeed intended to play on repeat.

3) I had planned for a bit more variations in the effects, but ran out of time before Gubbdata - I might do a version 1.1 later to expand it slightly. However, I am actually quite satisfied with it as it as.

4) The shade-bobs (or heat-bobs as I think of them myself, due to the way they work by heating up a constantly cooling background), was actually the first thing I coded after I picked up c64 coding again in 2011. Fancy stuff (fade in/out), ever-evolving sine-patterns, colors etc added in 2019.

5) Huge thanks to Glasnost for good discussions on code, for the FLOW control module (more of less a timer based multitasking system in ~$80 bytes), for the improved sine-pattern for the "curtain fader", for the second color-scheme in the $d020-scroller, and for being one of my closest friends for the past 27+ years =) .. oh, and for the 4x4 code you shared with me in 1995.

6) Also huge thanks to Slammer for making KickAssembler - especially the .segment feature is super convenient for coding one-part demos.

7) The music is ""$11 Heaven" by Jeroen Tel + LMan - it is not written for this specific demo (they published it in 2018). I have selected it, since I really like this piece of music, and I think it fits quite nice with the mood of the demo.

8) Ps: Please do yourself the favor to see in on a real C64 at least once. The scroller is soooo much better there.
