lines and glow and lines and glow and lines and glow:
plus plus plus
nyan cat:
well - fuck you - minus. still the best nyan cat version (if you can't make it look good - make it blue + glow and lines - works properly.)
all together:
plus.

Impressive. I like the music.
But: why is the nyan music so out of tune? I thought the AY-3-8910 was a fairly competent chip..

Music is neat, but really, the fx are almost too simplistic. :)

How do they do the blur/glow on this machine?

not sure how to judge this technically, but it's fun to watch anyway and C-Jeff's tune rocks!

I think I've joked at least once about the Vectrex being the most unlikely platform to get a Nyancat port. This alone deserves a thumb.

Neat :)

@Shockwav3: MESS currently doesn't have support for > 32K ROMs (so you only get half the demo!). We're working to fix it though =-). Until then, I'd recommend using ParaJVE instead.

Flickers a bit too much on real hardware in my opinion. So technically a piggy, but in total quite nice.
Finally someone else doing stuff on Vectrex other than us :-)

I don't like it :(. Vectrex is a neat platform but this has to be the least ineteresting demo possible on it. Nyancat in the end was also rather pointless...

Solid. The glow really added some depth to it. The only thing I found jarring was that the Sierpinski sparkles noticeably slowed down the music.

How do they do the blur/glow on this machine?

I imagine an old thick-glassed CRT would do the trick.

Neat demo. Nice, uhm what should we call it, density based(?) Sierpinskis triangle.
The music for the nyancat was a bit off. Not sure if this is a hardware pitch quantization limitation, or intentional.

Here's the story of why the Nyan Cat music is in the wrong key: The Nyan Cat was added to the demo shortly before the compo submission deadline. The rest of the music in the prod is from C-Jeff, but we couldn't find AY Nyan Cat.

To handle this, dkozel found random sheet music online and translated it into some tracker (It's been 5 years, I don't remember which one) but misread the key signature since it was late at night and we were all tired We have somebody in the group who's pretty serious about music (to the point of making his own oboe reeds, playing in musicals, etc.) but he was busy with other things so the mistake didn't get noticed until late and we had things to worry about other than out-of-tune Nyan Cat, like a last minute Vectrex display integrator recalibration.

Anyhow, hope people enjoyed a bit of cmucc storytime, and we're hoping we can do another demo for this cool platform someday. Vectrex is a fun piece of hardware and we think we could do better, and at least some of us miss writing demos (seriously, it's been 5 years since the iLisa at Assembly).
