Damn it was good to see and hear this as our release on the oxy party, even though only the intro was played, both thumbs up to you guys!

I hear this crashed after space was pressed at the party. So no one saw the 2nd part. Doh! Weird - I've had no trouble with it. Hmm... the only thing I can think that happened, was that the SPACE was held *too* long, as I left a reset routine on pressing space in the second part.

Added the SID "Tough to Break", as a couple people have been hassling me to release it! (Hi Psycho, Matt!). It's been submitted to HVSC, too.

I'm happy with how this came out, and thanks for the cleanup and all. The music fits very nicely, the end atmosphere is pleasing to me. Though the picture is very old, the whole production has an air of pleasing antiquity so to speak anyway so it works well.

Good stuff, music fits nicely. Helm's pic makes me think of the compunet era, has that mid-80s feel to it.

I like it! Nice little touches on the sharp hires border, the scroll fades, etc. And the music is great too. Plus it runs in NTSC so I can view it at home. :) Wish I could join you all at the party. I miscalculated the remote submission date for my own pic!
