the second demo i ever saw ... very cool :) it had a scroller that moved over the workbench screen, a nice big in japan .mod-cover and it would stay resident in memory until you switched off your amiga.

nothing more to add, you are true Robotriot :), it's a very old time demo, so just a vote ;']

Nice, cool, fantastic! I loved it and this was one of the first real amiga demos i saw. I WAS IMPRESSED. Ahh, nice memories. Cool music, gfx and code. Yep, rulez!!

A small complement, for scene newbies :
"scroller that moved over the workbench screen" means : part of the demo had a fully overlayed multitasking effect, featuring drop shadow scrolltext.

Oh man! Can we do such a scrollie running in front of windows desktop???

One of the first demo I run on my beloved a500..

The scroll-on-the-workbench was very impressing. The lens effect too.

I like also the part of the scroller on the screenshot -> "Laurent, t'as une tête de noeud".. :-)

"Laurent t'as une tête de noeud et une toute p'tite queue" qui pitch, top lol.

Nearly twenty years after its release, I just found myself singing the "Wild Copper" music. An inspired classic, still fondly remembered today.

Well, thumb up... It was one of the very first demo I watched when I bought my Amiga and as far as I remember I watched it many times!

i remember this from the old days. must have been one of the 1st demos i saw.

Its ok - I have probably seen it too late, but it did not impress me much.

the amiga speaking... the mod rulez one of my fav tunes, the line vectors r great also.
rulezadded on the 2005-01-15 19:52:01 by bigpimpin bigpimpin
One of the first demos I saw on the Amiga. Wild Copper ... The tune was tracked using ST-01 sounds and the integration with the workbench (multitasking!) was a thrill. Totally rulez!

Thumbs up for nostalgia!

Type "RV" in the RVb demo and discover a hidden scrolltext..

pure classic!

What a masterpiece...someone should rip this gem in video.
rulezadded on the 2006-10-01 14:06:35 by orb orb
One of the very first demo I saw on Amiga. A classic gem.
rulezadded on the 2007-01-14 19:30:09 by micdune micdune
by the way, it is called "Megalo Demos"
(which can be found on the original bootblock intro)
The first thing I ever got to run on my A500 next to the games found in the original pack I got.. Watched it for hours and read all the scrolltexts. Impressive for its days and still a joy to watch - altho the workbench scroller crashes in all its glory if you try it on something above 1.3

Think this one might have been running in a french computer shop called Tecsoft - they're bragging about having the fastest amiga in europe with a 68030. In 1988 :-)

I LOVE YOU !!!!!!!!!!!

An MP3 of the StarScroll demo is available here (for as long as one person downloads it a week, so it could be here for a while, or gone in a fortnight !):


And in case anyone is wondering, this is the demo with the immortal "This is Amiga Speaking... W... W... W... W... Wild Copper" sample.
added on the 2007-08-20 12:30:43 by GHeather GHeather
Worbench friendly, all effects are in real time, funny scrolltexts, 1988 ! Lot of fun when watching this demo.
"Laurent t'as une tete de noeud...et une toute petite queue!" ;)

The spinning mouse pointer from hell!

I was so impressed by this disk when I first saw it. It still holds up today, as in I'm not bored with it. Does anyone have the disk with the original intro on it?

I saw these as separate demos, and didn't know they were released together at first. Had I known that, my head probably would have exploded.
Rocks, of course!

Wow, what an advanced prod for 1988! Is the scrolltext being magnified behind the blue balls int the beginning the first lenz effect?

I I'll have to go to a desert island and I'll have to choose one demo, I would take this one.
