This is premium sh*t!
My fave is that awesome techtech, but also the Kefrems (seeing diagonal ones is a first for me).
The last oldskool part is great too. The grainy sprite balls fit in perfectly with the stretcher. Great style.
Leon's work is always reliable. Good to see that he deviates from his favorite color scheme now and then.

The first part (eci effect) looks incredible on the real thing, really smooth and colors that doesn't look like they belong to the c64-palette at all. :) Also enjoyed the last part.

I really like this plasma (well, techtech! 8)... The presets that are shown are just so nice looking and very varied, good job! SB-DYSP-FPD is top notch c0derpr0n, and that interlace gives it a little, very nice twist! ;-)

Nice onefiler. ECI techtech looks quite impressive, I mean it is a colorful effect that covers almost entire C64 screen and runs 50 fps. Yhen I gets some extra bonus points from me since I am sitting right now thinking trying to figure out how it is done! :D

The fpd+dysp is also a real oldschool style treat! I didn't even notice the sprite priority bug until someone mentioned it here (it's only visible when the logo FPD is 'closed')

Cool Clarence Code again. There's unfortunately no design. Drax' tunes are solid.

Unlike the other demo from the compo, this one doesn't feel rushed. A solid coder demo.

Some design concept would be welcome next time, though. And more graphics.

Super nice Clarence as always. And I like you saved the good shit for the big shit. ;D

Sweet and crisp Drax music, the ECI part is using nice mixes adding lots of nice color and the DYSP + logopart really brought me back in time. Backside of the Silver Star is that the presentation could have used some more coherent design (eg. one font/fontfamily, connections to the demoname, returning elements or colors, taking notice of the borders, etc.). Otherwise a very well implemented and nice onefiler.

Very nice stuff from Clarence, as always!! Last part is very nice, but has a sprite-prio bug in the right border. I saw it cause i know where to look ;).

Gold medal to silver star. I enjoyed seeing some fresh stuff from Clarence and a nice graphic from Leon. Musics are very nice as well. Press space demo style is arguable.

Coder pr0n FTW! Übercool music!

On a side-note, I really hate when Leon tags retouched graphics (could I see the origano?). The logo was nice, though.

nice demo. as far as the tech-tech, i still think the routine in Risen from Oblivion is unbeatable. not fair comparison though. different platforms.

Some quite nice stuff here. Just watched it on my setup with 1084S and I had to adjust the picture width to see the whole thing at the end. Impressive.
