aka da X-box in da FAKK!!!

..for the moment demoscene.gr is down, so download it here instead: http://www.freewebs.com/optimus6128/xkore.htm

p.s. I don't know what happened with the CPC results. Do you know? Did mike succeeded into connecting the CPC on the project and show the music compos and my demo? Do the attenders of Forever remember there was CPC showing stuff there too? I need a report about the CPCs state :)

p.p.s. And this one was supposed to be a demo, but I mostly consider it an ugly and buggy preview of my 2 years old CPC code :(

Also, there are unfinished versions of my 1kb intro and gfx screen I managed to do for Forever compos but left in the middle because I was too tired with my demo and bored to finish other stuff. And some crazy noters (Don't try to read these at home!)

enjoyable 8-bit effects, but it would have been nicer with some more different effects

@Optimus: Very nice dude. You really keep Amstrad CPC scene alive. Nice usage of x-scaled raster lines and very smooth effects. I specially liked the plasma like effect trick on the texture.

what's a good emulator to watch this in then?
parapete: Winape32 or Caprice32 will do fine.

Skate, cruzer: Thanks! Well, the plasma texture was inspired by Panta Rhei but I think mine looks uglier (because of some stupid lines appearing), generally it's the first time the CPC sees such kind of effects inspired from Oneder, Panta Rhei and other C64 demos with X-stretcher code. I am only frustrated because it didn't turned out to be a complete demo with some better design and more effects. I only started 1 week before the deadline :P

It should've really had more stuff and a proper design but the stretcher is way cool :)

Good work, Optimus. But why not releasing a real demo instead, at first ? It's kind of disappointing to me to see such effects wasted by alpha previews.. it removes the Wow effect.

Nice except for the horrible music.

Nicely done! Great stuff - haven't seen any Amstrad demos before (it was my first computer though - but I didn't see any demos on it).

Great waste of impressive code with fugly gfx, bugged tune and no design. Quite frustrating :(
I agree with grimmy :/

Arg ! Nice routs but ugly gfxs... The polar plasma is small but really cool !

Thumb up for the code for sure... Impressive stuff even after the release of BF by Optimus...

Why don't you get all your amazing code and release something that will be there to stay?

...because my previous post is somehow confusing:

Impressive stuff by Optimus... even after the release of BF!
