Thanks for the feedback!

@Richard: Guess what, it's a space-travel inspired FC4.0 tune of mine from 1990 :)

I was reading Asimov's Foundation series at the time as far as I can remember. Tune rested in the box for long and found a home on Mars now - almost 20 years later :)

That is entirely up to you. Don't worry if you don't. It is not that important :)

Hmm, shall I fix it and release a 'Life On Mars +SCROLL100%'? :-)

Not bad. Feels like going back in time. Especially the Future Composer style tune. I do agree about the scroll. It needs a smooth $D016 routine inside it.

Props for the shadow of the spaceship.

I like this kind of intros!
These are much more "giving" that a logo flying around :)
This is actually a theme, and very nice music too it.

The hard 1x1 scroll is for the flair, but this scrolling is really not perfect. But this baby needed to be born, because I coded too long on it and lost the thread...

Anyway, thanks :-)
