Wow, I can't believe I didn't see this before...and by the way...thank you for the greet! The song on the 2nd page is excellent, plus the open side borders on the 3rd page rock!

Nothing special, but it has solid and consistent design ordered in a way that it ends with the best part. That is really good about this demo. Music is probably the weakest part in this one. I wouldn't mind some timing to music/sound effects etc. 6 points. +1 for decreasing average age of active scener by few ppt.. ;-)

I like the music in the first part! Had to save it so I could listen to it for longer, as the part ends before I could hear all of it! :) Also as some have said, a fresh font in the sideborder scroller! Keep it up! EDIT: of course the tune is in HVSC, my bad.. thanks for pointing it out :)

PaulBearer: this is only due to my lazyness, as I didn't want to care about how to arrange this stuff in memory so it all fits. ;)

I did the last part's music in like half an hour and then the inspirational block came, so I just gave it to gregg as it was.

Lovely tune, even though it loops a little too fast.

Thanks for including a working .dfi! Even if I think you could have just made it 1 file only...?

Thank you for resoring some of my faith in the future of the C64 scene, guys. Though this isn't the best demo ever, it's not bad, and it shows there's ambition. Looking forward to your coming stuff!

The picture in the intro is a bit rough and looks unfinished, but goes well with the font in the main part.
Nice looking screens!

congratulations knoeki. finally you are involved in a cool project. in near future, I'm sure you'll be able to code demos like this by yourself.

congratulations to the rest of the team as well (specially gregg).

Nice demo!

I am especially fond of the scrolling text in side-border. It is such a splendid font and works really well with the background.

Uh, who coded this? ;-) Very nice! I love the "disk box" and arrow to the carrier box. Very ghey colors and gfx. Keep it up. :-)

I did a similar thing in one of my early demos - display an error message after depacking and then start the demo from a following keypress. :-)
