Explenation: I saw some stuff he did and screamed "hah! I can do that on my GBA!" and then he said "Go on, foo!"

It didn't look like it at all in the end, I got another idea meanwhile :)
Rank added. Got 3 of 3 against a flashdemo and a 64k mobile demo.
respect for doing 4k for gba, it isn't that easy. nice effect that lines thingie, music could be better, but oh well 4k has its limits. conclusion: i liked

Lets face the facts! 4k on GBA is not as easy as PC or Amiga stuff. This small intro includes three effects, a small logo, scrolltext & sound (even if it is annoying). Also don't forget the header which takes away 192 (?) bytes of possible code-space. Three years ago a guy called Costis organized a GBA 4k intro compo. Comparing to the entries three years back most effects were plain sound only, or single effects. This is one of the best GBA 4k intros i have seen yet. Manko i hope you know what you thumbed down, obviously you have no clue about GBA coding and it surly does not deserve a thumb down. If I am wrong please proofe the opposite and show me a better 4k GBA intro than this :)

Kojote: what on earth makes you believe it's harder to make a 4k for gba? do you really believe pcs and amigas don't have those headers and so on? 4k on gba is just a silly idea imho.

(i haven't seen this intro yet, so i'm not commenting on the prod itself)

well, i think gba is easier, as it supports tilemodes, chunkymodes, alpha blending layers and rotating sprites with hardware.

plus its got (it's not that great though) lz77 decompression routine in BIOS ;)

tilemodes or chunkymodes don't make gba any easier platform to program 4k imo. and gba hasn't as much cpu power as pc or amiga does.

LG, nice one. the music didn't impress me, but i like the effect. funky color scheme ;]

Seeing the other GBA entry at TMD, I must admit that this sucks. Sorry.

1: This is ugly.
2: 4KB on GBA is not "harder". Not at all.

Yeah! gba 4k forever :)

This didn't turn me on, but at least, i have seen worse, so no thumb down, a decent product, ..

what i dont like, is that gba has enough limits as i is, so you dont have to make a 4k for it, i have no idea how much to get out of an gba with 4k, just push the damn thing to the limit, and then some...

nice.... not as pretty as my pre-rendered looping animation and slideshow, but it -is- a thousand times smaller.

Aside from better music, what would you like to see next time? I could easely throw some plasma, rasters, vectorballs, starfields, and so on together, but would it be interesting enough?

Or should I do something surprisingly abstract again? ;)
holy shit, this was bad!
sucks added on the 2004-10-19 16:14:07 by kusma kusma
What would have made it better?
LordGraga: More interesting effects and better "music"..
note that "interesting effects" != plasmas,rasters,vectorballs,starfields unless you do something with them that has NOT been done 3562346 times before..
Well, of course those old ones arent interesting, but I think it would be cool to pop them all into a 4k at once, just for the fun of it ;)
Damn, I had also the idea for a 4k GBA intro :)

This is unfortunately very average.
