@Laurent: no problem sir. you did a great job with your intro btw! :)
@Spider-Jerusalem: oh that could be... I see I have d011 commented out in my source, some debugging leftovers probably :/ uhm, what if you set #$9b at $d011? doh, never had one of those AR or RR carts back in the days, SuperSnapshot forever! :)

Such a cool idea for this legendary intro ! your entry motivated me to do mine, thanks Smasher :)

IRQ init is probably borked. When you start from AR/RR fastload there are heavy frameskips. My guess would be that $d011 is not set properly.

[EDIT: oh, this was meant to be a "goof"]

@Mr.Ammoooooo: oh gosh... to know which was the final version and which the preview you could read the comments here, or read the scrolltext, or check the filenames, or check the screenshot or.. or... :)
now a separate entry for the prv has been created, sigh! my revenge will be that I'll drink so much beer at next X you'll go bankrupt :)
@Oswald: just added some instructions in the summary :)

I dont get intro in intro, only one small intro on the basic screen center ?

And then I accidentally press SPACE. .
Amazing intro!
Listening to the music ends me up with Kim Wilde's 'you keep me hanging on' in my head, thanks ;)

Which of the two download links contains the actual programme I should vote for? They're different programmes. likely I should vote for the one with the highest ID? It's probably better to create a new release for the non-competing version (making it less confusing)?

thanks all for the good words!
since Doc mentioned the prv here I uploaded it (I hope earlier builds of a released intro don't need separate entries, or?).
the preview features: an A4 fade-in fx, a mini TPI intro (a bit different than the final one) and an incomplete borderless TPI intro. everything is unoptimized.
The first idea was to have that borderless TPI intro moving in all directions.

I don't know if we have the same feelings. The original one is my all time fave intro, I loved so much this music. As The Ryk usually said I would have made a project like this. Well If I ever back in coding I would have made a tribute to the Papillons... one of the few c64 groups I hadn't traded with.
So thanx for the tribute and happy xmas back to you and the F4CG crew!

F4CG invents: the intro in the intro!!! :)
I coded a small TPI intro back in the ATL+F4 days (3+ yrs ago) waiting for a good reason to release it.
I tried to make it 4K for ICC2019 but because of the music size that was not really doable.
So I added some extra features and released it as 16K instead. Pls read the scrolltext carefully.
Enjoy it and Merry X-Mas from F4CG!!!
P.S: some small bugs and grey dots left, those won't be fixed... :)
