What a cool demo !
I love that xenon screen. And this kind of Z floor mapping which bigger bands at the bottom. I still love the picture with the girl with yellow make-up. BB Image

Overscan, overscan oversca oversc ove... Overscan just for the sake of overscan is pointless.

Rulez for the time it was done: this product was released by me in 1990:
the 14/05/1990 to be exact as it appears in the scroller. If you don't belive me, check the edition 2 of Maggie. An STE left border updated version was released the 25/07/2004.
In 1990, there was not much like this.
Use real HW, last SainT or last STEem.
If you can't fetch the file, send me a mail:
ljbk@clix.pt or ljbk@oniduo.pt .

masterpiece. nobody thought this is possible in overscan 14.05.1990 on an ST. Brilliant code. Was very surprised in a technical way.

Why am I always finding oldschool demos from portuguese guys when the scene is dead here?
BTW I'm gonna send you an email. I've compiled my first Atari code yesterday! MUHAHAHAH!

I need this version, this one doesn't run on my STe
I think I was a bit sick of oldskool people hating newskool stuff when I wrote my last comment. Of course this demo rules :)

A true classic, crazy overscans.

it has boobs!

now, from what I read in the scroller, Paulo made a spectrum demo the year before, in 1989! where is it? should be the oldest .pt demo, correct?

also, selfvoting sucks :)

Actually, my first ever demo on the ST is from 08/02/1989 and is a small multipart demo called The Spectrum 512 Scrollshow.
That program is refered by Manikin in Maggie 02 disk while reviewing the Overscan Demos release.
I have never produced a disk image of it as it uses a very special disk format as the original Overscan Demos did and it also uses a costum way to remove the top border and so i am not sure it even works with current emulators.
Who knows, if one day i have time i will do the code updates required to handle 11 512 bytes sectors on the first side instead of 5 times 1024 bytes + one time 512 bytes that is a much safer format.

The Spectrum 512 Scrollshow demo refered above, from 08/02/1989, can now be fetched here in a disk image file:

still a classic this imho. Sure it's been surpassed - by far of course since then.. but i still love it. Enough to make a video:
Very solid demo, great job !

Nice 90s Atari demo from Portugal

Fantastic overscan demo with pictures from Spectrum512!

On the emulator Hatari 2.4.1 works perfect in ST mode. In mode STe per 1-2 seconds breaks horizontal synchro in some parts.
