Cool! Nice little intro... I hope we get a few more intros for this system! Going to see it on my real hardware later on...

Yeah, was cool to see a vcs-demonstration at the partyplace.

StellaX (which I used till now) couldn't run it (don't know how it is with the newest version).
z26, which was mentioned in the info-file does this pretty good, but I needed to switch on my crt because it fucks up with the refresh-rate (my TFT doesn't like this).

Anyway, the demo was it worth. :)

Having tried to code the 2600, I can only say one thing.

And if you dig Atari 2600 music, check out Synthcart and these badass jams!!

Somebody set up you the bomb!

Heh. Does anyone have an AVI/MPEG version of this? I'd like to have a true copy of the real sound output for the next ARTS rather than feed from the z26 emu.

40bit framebuffer here we go!

You mean the background graphics, which is 20 bits in total actually, while the background is 40 lo-res pixels across the screen. This means that to do something like the Vantage logo at the top you have to refill the background graphics registers mid-scanline.

Oldest VCS prod on pouet, now with YouTube goodness. The music is rather good considering. The Atari logo is done neatly (reflected P1). Only a single screen, but it does have a lot of interesting stuff going on, like the starfield on top.

yay fine one screen demo
rulez added on the 2012-06-04 17:51:23 by Queen_Luna Queen_Luna
The music is a bit repetitive and the screen design is not very good, but hey! There are multiple effects stacked on top of each other per scanline, and lots to see, and considering this is one of the pioneering VCS demos for the demoscene, this is great!

Motivational thumb. :p
