Zyron: Regarding the unfortunate mix up of the two versions here on CSDB. This is the OFFICIAL version that was spread to contacts after the party.

The other version have a different intro. That's the version submitted to the demo competition (which it won very fairly, the last part is still mind boggling).

The following day(s) the first intro was replaced by a new one using a more suitable design and music. IMO it has a better look and feel due to the changes.

With that out of the way - can someone with extensive tools & know-how debug the last part: record how it interacts with the hardware and tell us what the fuck Bitbuster actually did?

I know there's no FLI at work, that the 7th bit is stretched using the FLD stretch bug. However, that still leaves a question how he shifts the other bitmap data around?

Those unfamiliar with the FLD stretch bug can do a search on "Marc's Movements" (RIFFS).

Remember when I first saw it back in 88, WOW !

They were invincible in that democompo, well deserved win.
3 ora dycp, bitmapscroller, bitmapstrecher with singlecolor sideborderscroller & colors at once !. Not bad for a demo from mid+ 1988 ! Rawhead ftw !
Bitbuster, would have loved to see you back, just for once :D

Love this demo. One of my all time favorites. The stretcher is still really impressing. Bitbuster quit way too soon.

Just to clear things up (about the last part).. This is not FLI, and it is also not an FPP-routine. This is a bitmap stretcher made with clever use of d011-stretching. It can only stretch the picture, not turn upside down etc, hence not FPP.

Very interesting to see this effect, knowing that FLI and d011-stretching were not even invented at this time. It is quite a complex d011-stretcher i would say, no like the first thing you would come up with. I'm just trying to understand how they managed to figure this out, and not doing a more straight forward d011-stretcher with 3-color graphics and FPP.

Isn't it the first FPP routine as well? Super clever!

According to Graham, this is actually the first implementation of FLI, even though it looks like a $d011 stretcher! 8) Yeah, it's weird, but if you look at the code, it's definately doing FLI stuff!

This version has a different intro than Official Partysqueezer. Not sure which one was actually spread at the party.

The bitmap stretcher totally blew me away back then, it was ahead of its time.

Very nice stuff for 1988, especially the bitmap stretcher.
