Just insane!!

I don't know how much influence the extra memory has to the quality (do you have big precalculated tables or something?), but all in all, it still probably is the best 2600 production I have ever seen.

I'd say this probably has _EVERYTHING_ to do with the quality :P But it's very good ^^

Preacher: I didn't focus on size optimizing this one. The demo uses slightly over 20k of the ROM size, so with a bit of tweaking 16kB ROM may be possible. I'm quite positive that there may be some duplicated sine tables that could be reused, or something.

And yes, this demo makes huge use of precalculated tables. You don't expect me to do atan/sqrt xor tunnel on 6507 in real time, or precalc tables to 128B of total memory? (no extra RAM used) :)

Simply amazed! That's the spirit!

I'm not used to VCS 2600 prods but for a machine as old as me with a MOS 6507 at 1.19Mhz even if 20k of rom... It's impressive !

Back to the roots of the roots ^^

Great job ! :)

This is what happens when you turn insane up to 11.

I would never have thought the console which brought us E.T. could do anything like this, precalc tables or not.

Amazing work! \o/

Holy shit! :)

For a while I thought it used extra RAM, but nope - just regular F4 bankswitching (probably lots of tables). Music is good too - nice use of phasing/not-slocum-player amplitude shapes.

Absolutely amazing. Best VCS demo Ever! Congratulations.

Awesome 3D parts and rotozoomers and music was okay. I'd love to see what you can do in 4k next :)
rulez added on the 2013-11-13 19:54:13 by visy visy
kk you made my day at SV, thanks for releasing this! It really shows the power of your approach and your ground breaking tracker. Dot ball, zoomer/tunnel and scrolling cube are ace.

On VCS ROM size is all you have so things that are impossible in 4k may be hard in 8k and trivial in 32k. So sizes really make totally different categories on the this platform. Technically this is definitively the best 32k prod so far.

wonder what is possible on a vcs... stunned!

@visy & JAC!: No fancy bankswitching effects or completely pre-baked animations used. Every single of the effects is works in 4k on VCS without a single algorithm modification. Just probably not all of them at once. :)
added on the 2013-11-13 22:22:12 by KK KK
Yes, new blood on the VCS!
Some very nice routines, the grey x-rotator bars was probably my favorite, looked damn good!

One strange thing though, on my PAL Atari 2600jr with Harmony cart, two parts bug:
The scroller and the green bubble-sprites thing (right before the dotball).
Both of those effects looks like everything gets offset by about one clock cycle per rasterline, resulting in everything just being one big diagonal mess.

Anyone else get something like that? This is the first thing I've ever seen that runs differently in Stella than it does on my real HW.

@Sdw: Yolk got the same effect on 2 of his 3 A2600 Jrs. Looks like the way I'm doing 8px left sprite shift. I'm in touch with him now and I'll try to find a code that works on all machines.

possibly the best vcs demo so far

Another milestone demo!

It's so good, it made my nose bleed (I'm serious! After watching it I had to go get some paper to clog up my bleeding nose)

Technically this seems very good, but in my opinion in every other regard this is still far behind the standard set by wamma/trilobit demos in 2007 already. Well made, but doesn't tickle my fancy.

HOLY SHIT NEARLY FULLSCREEN ROTOZOOMER THAT WORKS WITH ARBITRARY IMAGES ON THE VCS. I don't think even Tjoppen could do that.

The rotating gray boxes and the rotating cube alone are worth the thumb up, and music quality is good, too. I really like how you combined sprites and playfield in some parts. Great stuff, and creative use of the VCS' assets!

I'm no fan of all the lo-res effects, though. If a machine can do effect X only in crappy lo-res, then don't do it at all - but that's only my opinion. Oh, and design-wise that demo comes straight out of 1988, with logo on top, black background all the way through or screaming raster colors... that could definitely be improved upon. ;-)

Anyway, overall a good demo, and it really looks like lots of effort went into it. Cool!
