Ah. That makes sense. Omega Man did some very cool effects in his intros.

Yes, that meanteam demo had the first VSP and some TCS intro had the first linecrunching. Sorry Blackmail or HZ, you weren't the first :)

I think it is the first linecrunch I saw, and also the first 7 sprites sideborder over gfx scroller.
About VSP: Haven't looked, but isn't VSP&IK+ real VSP then?
It just moves the screen though, not makeing the appearance of scrolling it.

I think this demo has more than just some nice gfx. What really should be pointed out is that this demo was the first to show a bitmap-scroller using the VSP-trick (+ line-crunching i guess). This is a milestone in c64-demo history!
