Massive thumbs up for the Ate Bit crew!
The 64kb scene is dead, it takes the ZX scene to revive it... for some minutes.

4 entries? Come on breakpoint.

Extremely cool and straight to the point. I actually had an idea of doing the same thing with MIPS since MIPS asm is fun to write, but this is doubleplusgood.

Now, I guess the PC scene has to retaliate :D

Guys, read that NFO. A custom software emulated spectrum houses the z80 code that is the backbone of this demo, it's not a shader, it is quite literally a pimped out spectrum emulator running this for genuine colour clash, awesome 2x AY music and kick ass effects. This is pure win. :D

rulezadded on the 2008-03-25 13:13:53 by Alkaron Alkaron
This time I give only "OK".
First: it was possible to do all the stuff on Pentagon SL, Sprinter or another ZX Spectrum with turbo-mode.
Second: Actually most (all?) of these effect are possible to run on regular Spectrum 128K (well, maybe a bit slower but not necessarily).
I hope you will release full ZX Spectrum version of this programme. (There is an emulator of Sprinter btw. And Unreal Speccy emulates Pentagon SL).
added on the 2008-03-25 13:28:25 by johny johny
What power of CPU would have it need on Spectrum? These computers mostly have about 7Mhz. ATM has 7Mhz, Pentagon SL too, as far as I know. This prog should work smoothly on ATM 7Mhz, 1024 KB RAM and classic TurboSound. SL has similar config, if I recall. Also Scorpion 256 should be enough. Not to mention our beloved monster - ZX Sprinter. Does the demo use more than 21Mhz of Z80? There are so many models to support.
Well, I'm just wondering anyway. The demo rocks. :)

it's somehow uneasy that such an intro can win at breakpoint, even if that's not the author's fault. anyway, the prod is fun and including an emulator is a clever tech feature.

rulezadded on the 2008-03-25 19:40:55 by Sander Sander
Useless rant: Now I am thinking it again I wonder how this intro placed first? Yes I do like the spectrum references, it made my smile, but there is something missing here. Maybe there isn't an in your face presentation, fast transitions/flow, or something that would make me love this one and like to watch it again. There are some effects with the spectrum rendering (not the first time an oldschool rendering applied on PC demo, nothing new here), and there are several moments the action stops and the clive talks to the pimp guy and you wait and you are bored, ..Continue ..Continue, ..yes continue. It doesn't have the impressive presentation nor the spectacular effects, maybe just the idea and the lovely AY music, but.. I think I liked the 2nd place much more :)

Ok,. sorry for useless rant, I stilll gave a thumb up in this one and it does deserve it but how come it has more than the 2nd place? Just the Spectrum reference or is there something more I miss..

í somehow recall that there would have been some other prod also with an emulator inside it released some years ago, but cant remember what it was. anyone knows what i might be talking about?
rulezadded on the 2008-03-26 09:17:20 by nosfe nosfe
I'm sure there are a bunch of them.. For example, some years back we made this :)

As for actually serious prods, I haven't got a clue.

@ Navis: The demo is by Ate Bit (evilpaul, et al).
If it had been by gasman it would have been coded on a washing machine or a bus-stop display or something.

it was fun once. but there's absolutely no reason to watch it a second time, and it's impossible to judge how good or bad this is because it emulates some arbitrary hw that never even existed. for the kind of pc it requires to run the effects sure are bad. also, what havoc said.

still no thumb down because there isn't anything really bad about it either, but in my ranking this definitely wasn't first place material.

PC 64k scene just had their pants pulled down. And judging from the number of competing entries in this compo, they had it coming. Is 64k dead? Or is 4k the new 64k? I dunno.

Either way, this was a good idea totally brilliantly executed. A freakin Spectrum intro running on a pimped up _emulator_ in one single PC 64k? You don't get much more style than that.
