this contains many nice effects: scrollers, raster-scrollers, vector gfx and vector balls... also mentioned something about a hardware sprite (!) but the part crashes.... anyone has a complete version?? (perhaps elmar himseft!!?)

Yep, I have heard rumors about some impressive parts that were lost forever because a bad disk image was spreaded. I can't find the good one anywhere. The first part is already a classic for it's time though, the vector man used later in zaptballs.

But wtf, never seen hardware sprite, and bigger than the screen itself, and it crash?!? Any CPC people saw it back in 91?

Hah, no. The only demo that exists crashes before that part. I have legends of friends telling me back on CPC that there was some huge sprite or something. The only thing I hear is legends. Another one of the CPC legends lost to faulty disk or something :P

"hardware" CPC sprite, that sound like some of the best ST's tricks. CPC have yet many awesome one, but hw sprite, even if it small, zomg. =]
It's seems the coder was angry with some games editors.
I don't know what that screen ever showed, but legends told me a bouncing big helicopter or something, and maybe some hardware trick, but maybe this is a rumour.

Awesome for its time. Also I know someone who has met someone who saw that hardware sprite ...
