oh....that was exciting times back summer 1996 when i got email contact with Tamas Bene of the demo group HARD...we had several discussion on FX and he explained that in one of their releases the plasma fx had a bug which they could not fix... the scanline in so called "mode10" was shifted by one pixel to the right compared to "mode9"... so we made experiments with converters and display routines and came up with this new mode called "HIP" - Hard Interlace Picture... and a new area was born... a similar effect was used in the "lost 3rd side" of Slight's overmind but it wasn't interlaced... after this intro which i have sent at my unviversity's email account (oh...NO internet at home!!! times...unbelievable ;)) to Orneta Party 1996....after that most of the demos had a HIP picture (or derivates like RIP or TIP)... when you have seen Numen you know that it is now possible to display 256 colours in 192x240 on small atari... :) the great music track is from the game "back to time" or how was it called "timemachine"...an old game by ariolasoft...but the "synth" like soundtrack has just <512 bytes if i recall it correct... so this is a real classic as well...

Real cool Hard Interlace effect. 1996!

First HIP picture I've ever seen. Started a new era in XL graphics.

As Giger died I wanted to pop this up as we used one of his artwork for world first HIP pic in 1996...
nice picture, sound's a bit annoying
