Finally a decent multipart demo on the DTV. Great work guys!

I wish I had a properly modded DTV to see this working on the hardware...

Congrats guys! You have proven the DTV to be a sweet tiny 8bit demoplatform. Here is hoping for more DTV releases!
-And I must add, even for an early demo on the platform, I don't think GitM would be far from pushing the limits as is often the case with early releases on new platforms. The only weak aspect about this demo is timing -- the scheduling of the effects one after the other, and the time spent on some could have been set up better. But technical excellency is already there.

And at last C-64 has a clone to be on par hardware-wise with those crazy eastern-european speccy clones! \;]>

Great to see someone finally put some effort into creating a "real" demo for the DTV.

I guess I'll need to look into aquiring DTV-Trans cable, because loading from disk takes FOREVER! :)

I had to recheck this on the DTV just now, I was pretty tired yesterday when ran it.

Nice music, nice graphics, good flow and a nice showcase of effects.
A little low in the frame rate department on some effects, but all in all I like it! :)

Thumbs up for providing a dtvtrans version!

If c64 and Amiga had a kid, it would do demos like this when it grew up. Man, this really was a pleasant surprise. Like c64 on steroids. I was dropping my jaw when i saw the speed of the shadebobs and then that multicolour plasma. Phew. And the music by Linus is really really fierce!

@Cruzer: hahaha :)

Good work guys, I really enjoyed the demo. I'm sure you worked hard on some hardware hacks. I still keep my interest on DTV coding. So, I may bore you with my questions in near future...

Well, if this doesn't make ppl want to code for the DTV, I give up.
