Summary
Submitted by Sparta on 14 June 2023
World firsts and records in this demo:


206 Kefrens Bars in the Sideborder

This effect is about finding a way to write two bytes, update $d011 as well as $d016 and $d017 twice in each raster line while also displaying two sprites in the sideborder (both on one side or the other, or one on each side) without screen glitches. The remaining 6 sprites are used to add 6 more bars to the screen height of 200. Crossbow/Crest made 128 bars in the sideborder spanning 408 pixels horizontally. Our solution has a maximum visible width of 368 pixels, but allows 78 more bars. Thus, the screen area available for the effect is about 45% larger. There are other examples of Kefrens bars in the sideborder, but with screen glitches and/or bars in every other raster line, and - to the best of our knowledge - none with more than 206 bars.


3D Vector Cube with 386 Real-Time Calculated Dots

The effect beats the previous record of 306 real-time 3D vector dots in OMG Got Balls! by 26%. No, there's no perspective. It's - obviously - either 386 dots or added perspective. :)


302 Bobs DXYCP - World Record

Beating the previous record of 256 bobs by Bonzai (in Bromance) by a nice 18%, this effect plots a 5x5px bob scroller. No cheating involved, it's a real sinus specially chosen to push the limits again.

You can find out more about DXYCP scrollers here: https://c64demo.com/dxycp-scrollers/


Not Bob's Bobs

This is the first non-REU version of Bob's Bobs ("Finite Bobs") plotted onto a background. Note that this isn't using overlaid sprites, these are real blobs plotted into the bitmap. Hoaxers did similar in fREUd but, yes, needed a large REU expansion for it to work. This version works without REU - and at the same time draws more bobs than Bob was doing in his background-less versions ;)

Summary
Submitted by Raistlin on 6 June 2023
We were in such a rush at the end, I should say “special thanks” to JackAsser, Christopher Jam and Bob for listening to me as I fought to get my first AGSP working (yeah, somehow, I never made one before..).

<sob story>I recently found out (“officially”) that I have some sort of “learning difficulty” which makes it really hard to learn new stuff from books and writing… explaining why I sucked in school at anything that wasn’t maths. So such as the “VIC Article” that everyone points me to I just can’t cope with. But… I can write up my own stuff - you’ll see there in my blog that much or what I make is hacked together through trial and error.
</endsobstory>

So, yeah, in short.. thanks to those special people who walk me through the VIC tricks that I’m still learning :-)
