The intro is fine... I don't care about the odd 1-cycle bug in the corner or whatever, because quite frankly I never saw it when viewing it on the real thing with a "non-expanded-screen" TV. That excuse also explains why my own intro entry actually has the same problem if you look closely.

Today we had a offence meltdown meeting and we had a blast... I just had to post this right before going to sleep... I have been watching a lot of pc demos the last months and I have also the last two years designed some kick ass pc demos that were to be done... but I just realised today that the c64 is the real scene because we are so much, difference and on this platform one can do a lot of stuff that really are rear, weird, super, less super, professional, not professional, not a modern art super music video vith all the effects one can place in there... a simple intro like this is something... no one can take that away from it... it is something, and in my world I am happy to be doing something like these odd stuff on c64 rather than have a seccond job... I think we all should just embrace the fact that we have a platform that is totally solid, nothing ever change in hardware or such... this is our canvas and we can decorate it in any way we like without being measured by television or film or professional sound recording standards... I LOVE THAT! Good night!

GPZ: I get your point, I totally agree with you. I just cannot hear this craptalk over and over again. There has been a lot of strange stuff been released lately that is totally overrated, but hey, this is getting more and more lemononized every day ;)

again, its more about the overrating than the release itself.

but yeah you are right. if those that could release good stuff dont - then those that release mediocre stuff take over. been there, done that =P

On the + side: RASTERBARS!

well codewise and everything but the music lacks in quality, so what, the whole idea behind that fb "compo" was to get people doing stuff they like, maybe with strange old tools or whatever, the way they remember it ot maybe just think how it was back then. it is pretty easy to rag down everyone and every single release, but hey, at least he DID DO something and doesn't just bla bla bla since 1990. you can hate richard as much as you like, still he gets his ass up creating something, every single crappy bit of him is better than all those bullshit talk it leads to, just ignore him if you dislike those ugly colours or bad code, but everytime this childish "LAME" "LAME" "LAME" sucks.

yes - it brings back oldschool-feelings and thats what the fb compo is all about i guess. i somehow like it. especially the music is nice... i dont care of that flickering too much, but the logo and the rasterbar-colors are not really my cup of tea.
User Comment
Submitted by Groepaz on 17 February 2011
ehrm, i didnt miss the flicker at all. its not really visible on the real thing though (unless you have extreme monitor settings)

@Groepaz: Only an amateur eye like yours misses obvious flickers. :p Look carefully at the top left border area and you'll notice timing problems (occurs time to time, not resident).

i dont know what a compo is to you, and i dont know what "Love it..." is to you. but this intro is something so average, it would have been uninteristing even in the 80s. everyone and his dog did crap like this, indeed. if this is really whats wanted, please atleast choose a colorsheme that doesnt look like it has been ripped from a 1985 NTSC intro. *sigh*

its not bad or anything really, but certainly nothing to go crazy about like some of these comments suggests. (flickering rasterbars - WTF?)

ha ha... what is the problem? I can remember a lot of intros in the late 1980`s that looked and sounded just like this one... I thought that were the purpose with this compo? Am I wrong?

For me it brings back memories of my youth, and it feels nice inside. I also kinda love the future composer sounds... mmmm...

C'mon.. It's really mediocre - even if it was made in 1988.

flickering rasterbars in 2011 \o/ other than that, intro looks very nostalgic and nice.

I know already you did that... but the decrunch bars man... the bars!!!!!!
User Comment
Submitted by Richard on 16 February 2011
Heheheh! Well, I did use a very old cruncher. One by Matcham/Network. See production notes :)

For flashing border instead of noise:

This is a oldschool intro, and I love it! ... but there is one thing missing and that is the sledgehammer or timecruncher with such basic text and bars in border while decrunching... ha ha!

Love it... the music is really something I would expect to find in an intro from early horizon or FIG or something... cool!

Very, very nice intro with true oldschool feel. :) Reminds me of some 1989 intros. Which is cool!
