A great demo for sure - to noone's surprise, with Xbow behind it;)

While the 5 sprites over (I)FLI has been turned into a gfx mode by Algorithm (Introducing MUCSU-FLI), it motivated me to extend this to full 200 rasterlines (The Other Lines). So thank you, Crossbow, for the spark ;)

Vertical sb bars, however, is an effect of its own class. Answers to that (like the already mentioned Interruptus Retriggerus or No Bounds from the latest X) -all top-class routines on their own!- show the extreme impact Crossbow's routines have on this very scene!

@HCL: I do feel the same, there have been quite some comments on this demo "back then"...

Interlaced sprites over IFLI pic, side-border vertical bars, what is there not to like? ^_^
The only negative is possibly the multicolor logo which could have been better.

Since I came back on stage a few years ago, I've been meticulously watching everything I missed when I was inactive, so this production is simply amazing! Everything here is so warm and amazing!

I'm 100% sure i commented on this one in an earlier reincarnation of csdb.

A typical Crossbow-demo picking up the challenge and slapping other coders in the face (my face this time). This demo was quite humiliating for me, being a bad looser and all.. :) I had to make an answer-demo Interruptus Retriggerus where i made it up a little, but not really managed to improve on the core effect in this demo: vertical bars in the sideborder. Crossbow impresses by finding out seemingly impossible solutions to this by utilizing his unsurpassed knowledge about vic-trickery.

I wish i could just do a bad improvement of another effect, claiming it's impossible to do it better, and trigger the wake up of the great master once again.

No idea how I missed this one. Pure gold as usual when done by crossbow.
