Final Version available: Decline of Kali V1.2 + Bonus

@motion: i highly doubt it, because commodore used another speechcart (magicvoice), and speakeasy is easy to use and program (plugs into userport, can even be used with vic20)

@Yago : By 'used', I meant that he had alot of hassle getting it to work with the C128, due to unusual programming methods implemented on it.

Main Info here: http://www.howell1964.freeserve.co.uk/parts/sp0256.htm
The Speakeasy is just connected to the userport, which makes it usable for vic20 and c64.
(I doubt its the stuff bill herd used)

Really liked this one - great graphics. The sense of depth was very impressive in the first pic and the 2nd one was very metallic. Looked great in the border and the colour cycling was a nice touch.

Nicely suited music too, Hein.

SpeakEasy support? Is this the same cartridge 'Bil Herd' was on about with the C128?

nice tune, and nice graphics.
though, on the objective side of things, i'm a bit disappointed, because this is a form of kali as it has been modelled by ray harryhausen and was portrayed in the movie 'the golden voyage of sinbad' (and in fact, this one looks too similar to that one =). harryhausen's kali turned out to be missing some essential parts that kind of define kali's image as it's known to most in popular culture.
i'm just mentioning the missing third eye, the obligatory sickle, the chopped off head in one of her hands, the necklace that's made of skulls .. yeah, looks like i'm picky here. :D

\O/.. Great demo with awsome music from Hein - as always.. I love it!..

EDIT: The alpha thing in the first part is awfully nice, but the stray sprite in sinus thing after than, annoys me a bit - it's like it won't comply to conformity. :)

very nice indeed, but I miss the effort which would it make a true demo in my eyes. I think e.s. needs a coder slave, too many nice ideas thrown away too cheaply.

The STILLE file is used to turn off the SpeakEasy module used in some parts of the demo.

I like it a lot, especially those 2 magnificent pics by Joe.

but yes, radiantx is right (!), some $d010 hacking would've been in order, the plexer should've been centered.

Nice, but I'd have liked the multiplexed sprites to the right instead, because might is right.

I recognize the overall quality here, and I like the music. The graphics leaves me wondering though. Seen in connection with the last WD demo, I really cannot decide for myself whether this is cheap copyism, unheard of Timanthes-transfering with minor correction - or pure artistic brilliance. I hope it's the last, but I need some time on deciding.

@Hein: hey! that tune sounds familiar! ;)
