Quoting Wile Coyote
/off topic

With reference to the two comments posted by WHW Design, both of which are repeated in the Production Notes, which amounts to spamming, do not relate the release ‘Dark Dream‘. CSDb mod Groepaz has been contacted on more than one occasion, and has deemed both comments as suitable. As a mod that is his call.

WHW Design’s comments amount to nothing more than a storm in a teacup. The stuff about ‘hi-jacked’ ‘the connection to Return of the Living Dead’ ‘Work with this artist at your >peril!’ is amusing to say the least.

I still stand by the view, WHW Design’s user comments have place here.

/back on topic

WHO THE FUCK CARES ? this is the 10th time you are deleting old and posting new comments about the drama everyone has already forgotten about. stop whoring for the attention.

After agreement with DRAX, the sid will be deleted because it's actually a dupe: it's just a packed version of /MUSICIANS/D/DRAX/Worktunes/BLIP.sid

The tune used in this screen isn't finished but for some reason it is included among my finished tunes in the hvsc... Can some fix that... It gets pretty buggy after it has played a few times due to desyncronization!

‘Remember where credit lies and all should be well.’
All will be credited with their input. The ‘Turn Disk’ pt. looks great, and the intro ‘Menu’ is doing things I don’t think I’ve seen done on C64 before.

'you couldn't release the bitmaps on their own'
They are more than just 'bitmaps'.

Groepaz - heh, no drama.

PS. Here's hoping the scrolltexts or accompyning note will include the fact you went behind my back and passed the Night Train part to Crossbow to fix without my consent because you thought I was taking too long to learn coding and finishing a demo idea you essentially hi-jacked.

It's really indicative of how the c64 scene can go wrong when a graphics artists relys on a artist/coder to help push their parts along. What's even more worrying is the demo "Zeros and Ones" originally started as a WOW-only demo entitled "Return of the Living Dead" (check "Return of the Living Dead 5% release on CSDB) and then was subsequently renamed without discussion with me, the lead and only coder.

A TV screen bitmap featuring a static picture that is switched out with another picture is, to me, a bitmap. When a flooder and some dxcps are added, then it is a coded effect and of course, constitutes as being more than a bitmap. Much like a SuperIFLI picture featuring a copy of a Tamara de Lempicka (http://amweb.free.fr/andart/gallery/20eme/lempicka.jpg) with a scroll added by Crossbow is only more than a picture because you asked him to add something to it.

Work with this artist at your peril!

Rather off topic this and apologises to all:

Zeroes and Ones, again? Seriously Shaun? It really was cheeky of you posting that entry on CSDb in 2006.

Remember where credit lies and all should be well. The preview code I sent you way back (was it 1997?) - The Night
Train is the only idea of yours that remains mostly untouched by me, design wise.

Remember our original deal: You can only pass on the original designs of these parts to your new coder - not the
preview code. This specifically means, your Dali picture shouldn't feature the horizontal flooder effect and 2
dxcps. I guess the NMI part can't be avoided for Mona Lisa as how else will you play the samples without SID
noise? I don't recall getting very far with the end animation even though the graphics were really nice there.
There was probably another part I'd started work on but didn't get very far - was it the DOOM Cinema? I don't
remember starting on the intro or any other parts though.

Just what else was there to this demo of yours you placed so much importance you couldn't release the bitmaps on
their own and let this "release" rest in peace? :-/

I like it more now when looking on it in the emu than live on the big screen. The details are more comprehensible now.

I like it. It looks like screenshot from some new huge isometric game made by russians.

After the compo somebody came to me asking if I didn't show a workstage by accident :-)

Indeed, not one of WEC's finest hours.

WTF? Hommage to Spectrum or what? Doesn't impress me at all, sorry... I thought maybe the black just "ate away" on details like it tends to do in hires and that I'd appreciate it more when I watched it on an Emu, but it's still the same...

I like the strangeness of isometric style, but the colours look a bit randomly placed and make it too clear where one 8x8 ends and the next starts.
