the first demo i ever saw. especially the loader music was quite impressive, and i also had a good laugh while reading those endless scrolltexts :)

ZE megademo !!
Un pur bijou oldsk00l !

Ce fut la premiere démo que j'ai vu, et la premiere d'une longue passion !!

Nostalgia strikes back !!!

My first demo also, and it's still entertaining.
But why doesn't this demo appear if you only search for "megademo"?

Because only the first 20 are shown.

I couldn't run it from many version of WinUAE (1.4 to the latest) then I downloaded a very old one (0.8.23) and it work, jsyk ;p Also there's a HD version here http://ftp.funet.fi/pub/amiga/demos/RedSector/
it's a very-very big hit !! :]
Buckethead: WTF are you talking about? This works very well with all newer WinUAE versions. Need help configuring your emulator or something? Free hint: it's an OCS demo from 1989.. Figure it out.
added on the 2008-11-26 06:24:29 by break break
Did I claimed that the demo never worked on latest winuae version, or need your help ? no
Setting floppy drive emulation speed to 100% instead Turbo (mode I used with most if not every demos I run) made the hint. No more guru meditation after the first decrunch on the loader part.
Turbo mode on WinUAE 0.8 and this demo run well on my machine, weird.
Works perfectly here, except the last part. If I remember correctly, the last part includes lots of demoscene related questions.

Does this require two disk drives? This just hangs at the loader screen.
rulez added on the 2009-03-29 19:34:53 by toxie toxie
Please insert disk two XD Amazing demo, I really enjoyed every bit of it.
rulez added on the 2009-04-06 14:16:54 by aizen aizen
Cj: the last part stops working if too many scener entries are written to the disk, IIRC. There are versions going around in which the part works correctly.
added on the 2009-04-06 14:19:58 by break break
THE demo. From the day I saw it the first time (around 1990) til today it gives me the shivers. Really ahead of it's times.

The first real demo I've ever seen ! The demo that have change everything for me with Mental Hangover / Scoopex and made me stop copying game, and jump inside the demoscene underground world !

And well 1989... Wow last year it was the 20 years of that demos and it's always so fun to watch it ! (And I've needed about 5 years before releasing some demos that not even get that levels !).

I'm curious to know what young sceners can think about this demo if they see it nowadays... Hmm, if I heard one saying it's lame, it will probably got his ass kicked hard by a lot of old schooler !
