You're welcome :)

Considering you used the very oldschool method of S-MON for development it is a very fine production indeed. I would also like to see what you can do using cross development tools :)

I have used the scroll font (part of it) as yet another example for the next version of PicConv and I realized that I had to improve my conversion of mixed single- and multicolor chars.
I had forgotten that MC1 or MC2 color could also be a singlecolor char (in this case red is MC1 and is used for the top of the scroller and different places in the middle).

Thank you so much for the nice comments! <3 <3 <3
As Walt pointed out and explained, the scroll is the main routine here (thank you Walt for your super nice comment, I do really appreciate for it;-).

You guys are right, logo movements a bit unsynced and strange, also the intro sequence is too slow. Maybe next time I'll polish all the things out more! :-)

Nice one Zsolt, now please stop this SMON torture and let us see what you can do with a cross assembler.

As someone who more or less lives for hires-looking sprite trickery and scrollers I simply must say that THAT SCROLLER is very beautifully thought out, pixeled and executed! :)

since I coded my intros in the 90s with s-mon too, here's my 10 :)

Nice intro. I also read the story on the scroll text that you used a standard machine code monitor to code it. That must have been hard work, but I really applaud you for the hard work. Well done.

Lovely graphics, really nice work. I agree with WEC though that the sine of the logo bump needs some fine tuning.

The audio sounds rather good.
The movement of the two logo's felt frigid.
