Now, this I *really* like guys! Great work all round - brings back memories of my father talking russian! (even though he was Polish!). Is that Arnie in Red Heat, leaning against the flag? Ha! ;)

The subtle music and wind adds greatly to the atmosphere - nice touch with the flag, helps bring it all to life. Like the fact that the intro fades out into the picture part after a period of time. Awesome!

Beautiful, beautiful hi-res. Extremely fitting aesthetic concept, the subtle music, the flag waving... Great all around. This makes me happy, WEC.

I was expecting a sprite train to pass by fast at some point or something. That would have been rocking.

Quoting wile coyote
I figured if i up loaded the image people might not bother to download it, thus miss out on the added bonus of flag movement.

Haha, good idea, and according to the number of downloads, it works well! Pity we can't force people to check the pictures on real C64. \:D/

excellent work there.
i hope putting the kyryllic letters in a different context was on purpose? =)

EDIT: concerning the tune - can anyone with a 8580 tell if $11 is being played?

fuckin' awesome!

p.s: sprites are used not only for the flag but also for the man.

@Twoflower: It is no AFLI picture, it is plain hires bitmap (with sprites for the flag).

This is a really nice AFLI-pic, even better than the one before. Very nice feeling in it, not just a technical showoff.
