It is not important what RB5 thinks, its important what a billion sceners think.

where would you get a billion sceners from??
for the prod: i think the visuals are rather random and ugly but sound in a 32b production is more than noteworthy. have my thumb.

The screenshot makes it look much nicer than the real thing. I also dislike that it's aligned to the top (at least in Dosbox SVN, in Dosbox-X it's audio only :P) But hey, sound in 32b! Can't argue with that. :)

Yeah, it's kinda rushed, and there is even a byte left. But please also note it's high resolution :) Aligning (like in the "indian" series) is not that easy in 32b. I fucked up the readme as well, it's 640x480 in 256 colors :D

I tried it in PCem.. video works with the S3 Trio/Vision cards (but not the generic S3 Virge/DX), but it only covers the top 10% of the screen, instead of ~75% like DOSBox). The non-S3 cards I tried (Trident, ET4000) didn't work.

Any kind of music-like sound and animation in 32b is an achievement, of course, even if it only works 100% in an emulator. But let's see if anyone can find a real PC with an S3 card to try it on.

Thanks for testing (even if it doesnt work)

I remember on my first PC (386DX40), the Western Digital graphics card had 256kb of memory and therefor not enough space for the classic 640x480 mode in 256 colors, but there was a "shortcut" (mode number smaller than 0x100 to be activated with the normal VGA bios call) for a 640x400 mode which fitted. I was very happy to find that out back then :)
Lots of old cards seem to have such modes available, usually in the value range about ~>0x60 If you know the mode number, just change the 2nd line in the code to try it. The mode number changes the effect a bit, but that wouldnt matter much.
Another point is the pixel set routine of the graphics bios. It might refuse "illegal" coordinate pairs in CX,DX which can cut off most of the effect, since the effect somewhat relies on uncaught overflows when calculating the position. That is really something different graphics card seem to handle differently, but i don't have that much old stuff at hand to really test it :/

Showing that the "secret modes" indeed work on real hardware. Here, it is a NVIDIA G105M, set to mode 91 (640x400 with 256 colors) via normal VGA Bios Call (no VESA!). Sound with PC Speaker. The animation itself is playing around with some logic and mapping that to the black/white shades of the default 256 colors VGA palette.

Very good as for 32b... Almost with the "Space Invader(s)" theme...
