A really enjoyable collection - varied sounds and styles. Cool Interface, nice use of side and lower borders, pleasant colours.

All the tunes were agreeable to my ears, first tune gave a good impression, and tune 7 was very nice, too.

Good release!

Opera Omnia 2 have that function too, as well as later collections from me. I've always enjoyed collections where no interaction is needed.

Oh yes! The autoadvance is something I've always been missing in music collections. Hard to believe how rare it is.

I should probably create my own depacker code anyway (if only by ripping it from the Exomizer source and adding some frontend code), it would be good excercise.

JackAsser: I can use the loader, not the bells and whistles. :-D But that's cool. Any way to compile it without the drive code part?

@Radiantx: FYI, the one loader you can use in your sleep has a call memdepack which simply depacks a chunk of memory and stores it on the destination address stated by the packed file. It handles both exomizer and pucrunch transparantly, depending how you configure the loader. Neato huh? :D

Zzap69: They sure did, but after spending two hours of trying to get my head around depacking exomizer crunched data I just though "WTF" and went with the one loader I can use in my sleep, instead. :-)

Truly a pleasant surprise! I really loved some of the tunes. I like the outfit of this collection too. The logo saying "Oblique" is OK:ish and just to nag a little; didn´t all the 7 tunes room in just one file?

Only been listening at a few tunes so far but I've already heard enough to say that this is very nice! Horray! Thumbs up for the scroller too!

Way to go radiantX! Nice musicdemo with lots of unexpanded sideborder scrolltext to read while listening. I think the highlight was the last two tunes, 6 and 7. Vely vely good.

The outro tune is definately my favorite... I like those chords and that bass together... Excellent... And it is very easy to improvise a really good lead to those chords...

This is really something special. There is a good nerve in the music and personality... And for some reason you got a genuine oldschool touch in your music that I like... Excellent compositions... I never get bored listening to this music...

Yes,a very enjoyable piece of work! 8)

Good variety of musics, style+instruments-wize!
My favorite is "Circuit". 8D

As a bonus,you nailed the real scene-spirit in the beginning of the scroll. \o/

Yeah yeah. This is the dude I kinda miss in the sidcompo, if you ask me ;) I'll check this on real thing too and let you know how it feels.

Nice & polished presentation.
The first beats of the openingtune had me hooked within seconds.
Also Car Crash Creator isn't your average conventional SID-tune. Thumbs up for that.
I'll check it out again @ home on the real thing before I cast my vote.

Super nice Martin! And good work with the plots, nice that you actually "project" the shadow to a plane and not only some stupid y-offset.

Thumbs up! I really enjoyed the music! Car Crash Creator is a really weird tune! :-) Also nice with the party report. You can be very happy with this production!!

Personally I like everything except the font. I found the font downright ugly.
User Comment

Wow, this looks really classic. Even the font looks classic. Got to check this out.

Very nice "I do everything myself" production. Collection outfit is cool and I liked some musics even they were not exactly my cup of tea. Automatic track skipping, fade-in, fade-outs and scroll text are some nice features.

I like this one. A long and enjoyable scroller to satisfy my urges. Most music held a quite nice standard too. Way to go Radiantx.
