Removed vingeroefening as SID entry for this release, since its not the actual sid used. This tune is called "Open Your Eyes Remix". Greetings...

I agree with you Knoeki. But what do you expect from an hour of coding/processing beginning to end?

If it was my intention of making a kickass demo specially for X, I would surely spend more time and effort

This demo is merely images decompressed and displayed onto the screen, nothing more, nothing less

I know I'm not the best coder/graphician, but my opinion about this..:


it's just some lame animation crap. the intro has some straight converted picture.

this was done a long time before X, I don't understand why they did not at least put something like a scroller in the second part.. ( if you count the intro as a part, anyways ).

it looks nice, but it could have looked a lot better, especially considering this was finished weeks before X started.

so sorry to say this, but it sucks in my opinion.. especially because there are plenty of good coders/graphicians in GMi...

this is not the first time that something magically works in Vice and fails on a real C64,i have seen many more examples of it. in the other case of the "party testing gone wrong" the guy realised that something is displayed incorrectly in Vice and made it in time to fix the bug. Final-Testing in Vice or CCS is a real FAIL,if you dont have a C64 around then use Hoxs64(the only emulator not using accuracy sacrificing performance hacks).

Demo coding 101 : always check your stuff on the real hardware first.

Yes $e5a0! :-}
All because of WinVices inaccuracy to run something when it should not have. Looks like its Hoxs64 testing for now!

The demo not working was a real let down at the compo.

Do you mean $E5A0 (Set I/O Defaults)?
Anyway, when in doublt and don't have a real C64 to test, at least test also in hoxs64 :)

Ok. It seems to be fixed now. Before memtransfer and depacking there should have been two calls (jsr $fda3 & jsr $e5e0) - jsr $e5e0 was excluded. Winvice authors please fix this issue as it still works in winvice with this call excluded and should not!)

Only black screen after intro on real C64, but it seems like this is a known problem already.

Also, I might be crazy, but to me it looks like the 1x1 scroller in the intro is not running smoothly, like the charscroll and smoothscroll is one frame off in sync or something.

My apologize that the demo did crash on x, we should have tested it merely on real machines. Sorry for that! :P However, a fixed version will be cumming as soon we have made enough tests :)

A quick one filer coded in an hour or so which features realtime video decompression. Failed miserably at X2008 (Did not depack!!) aaargh. Only could test it using WinVice!
