@Phantom: Hehe.. Yup those are old, I showed you them like 3 years ago, check your disk ;-) Read the intro on the disk.. The venom logo is new tho, or should I say newer maybe a year back for that one..

The plexor just has characters in it, you might think the stars are in the plexor from the screenshot. Should work perfect in both Vice / CCS64 and ofcourse on the real thing. Matter fact it should work on a PAL system also :-)

Nice work J. Are these the parts to the demo from a few years ago? hehe..

Smooth production. Loved the artwork! Nice to see more NTSC work.. Puts me in a mood to release ;)

Side note.. The multiplexer didn't quite work as it did in that gif. Mine worked as one solid multiplexer, in the gif, it shows several all about. Perhaps this is an emulator defect?

Spectacular graphics. It is very good to see a new Venom release :) IRQ loaders are always compatible for both Pal and NTSC systems.

Oh also! To all the skeptics out there that said Krill's loader wouldn't work on NTSC.... Its now proven, works fine and we will be using it all the time now! Thanks Krill for putting up with the nagging and many MANY msg about the loader!! And yea I believe we are the first to use it on the NTSC side..

Can I get a hell yeah??! I'm glad you guys managed another release this year. The multiplexer looked smooth, and I like the logo on the first page! Nice upscroller. Great multicolor pics. This was a nice surprise, although I had a feeling you guys had something up your sleeves for the end of the year. Thanks for the greets, both to myself, and to my groups. Oh, and it is with extreme significance that I assign congrats to being the first NTSC group (to my knowledge) to use Krill's excellent loader in an actual demo production. This raises the bar..I'm upping my vote. - you get 9 for advancement of the regional genre.

Those intro graphics in the beginning are great, they should stay on the screen longer.
