Again... the last part in this demo... that is what it was all about... it came out of nowhere and it remain as such a great part... 14 year old geniuses creating something... I never will leave Marius in thoughts... so talented and such a sad story in the end... greetings my dear friend and biggest inspiration ever!

Håvar: I would so much like to have served more with him, keep those magical moments inside and always remember our friend.

Last part - a real sight the eyes and the music is really good from Geir. PAL: I agree 100% with what you say. Unitrax was a mystery to me being so full on talent: he could code routines like none would think of, his graphics was outstanding and he could make his own music (be it SID or whatever). It was a true honour to have served at his side.

To forget the resent scene out-of-love i look at the last part in this demo and i just think that people making this at the age of 14... thet is really something... geir made in my mid the best sid ever to fit in a part with this, thanx geir, i still have the new version some where that you made for me... one day it will be out if you do not send me a final... you know that geir? you are the best, suss suss... and marius, looking down at us... we having scene wars that he loved so much, but he is sad because he see that it is not because of humor and the fun of it, he see true hate... the scene, we must stand tall, above normal, we must be abnormal and have fun. Look at the last part here and tell me you do not feel the love... marius unitrax made this part, wow... he coded it and painted it and beyond everything in my mind at that time he made some inredible feelings in his animations here... best demo part ever!

Scene love, love the scene!

@Rough As far as I remember, Svein got the gfx from Deenen. I do not know whether it was originally intended for Shape, or this demo.

What surprises me that CD did the gfx originally for Shape which weren't thaaaat known that days, and else, what PAL says, the last part is a graphics thunderstorm.

Had to comment something to share some feelings with PAL. This demo belongs to my favourite one-filers too. It's pretty obvious those wonderful tunes by Geir were done with 6581, the filters do not much make justice with 8580. Unitrax's last part really was a blast back then!

oooohhhhhhhhhhh....... unitrax marius aka the best there ever were..... the last part in this demo..... aaaahhhhhh..... Love it til death.... and geir tjelta... again I am sorry because you always were embarassed of me when saying this... it is one of your absolutedutely finest moments in my c64 history this music... In a way this part at the time when it were released and the momentum the sinus and the music creates together in a 50 frames per sec move is the very reason why I love the c64! It is so plain and simple, it is so incredible appealing for my mind!

That last part is the part above all others I think... look at the part my dear late friend unitrax marius did code design and create here, and with the all time fav sid tune on top of the part creating such an exciting feeling... in 1989 this one were pretty damn good coded too, and just thinking that this part had been lying around for a half a year is just insane... Charles intro graphics are stunning, love koala format me I do... the whole demo, love it, LOVE IT LOVE IT!
