This one was really cool, despite it's just a slideshow.

1) It's the first demo with the lower border removed! Technique developed by Alyssa, and used here.

2) Very likely the first digidrum zik on the ST!

3) The slideshow loads images from normal system formatted floppies without having the border rout flicker, not even on STe machines arriving >2 years later. Many many other failed that, even after the STe was out. TEX rules, as simple as that :)

The digidrum Auf-Wiedersehen-Monty is already worth a thumb up.

boring slideshow + scroller
256: erm... check the 1st comment of the page to figure out what this demo was all about, it's not just a "boring slideshow + scroller"

evl: first time the lower border was removed was by alyssa (where is that screen, somebody somewhere must have it!)

also respect for evl's point 2 and 3 :)

but still, this rules!

Earx, As far as I know, the Alyssa screen (or whatever it was) never made it to public, instead TEX used the routine in this slideshow.

Here's the scrolltext:


the exceptions strike again! originally we never wanted to write a demo again (no time!), but then our friend alyssa discovered how to remove the lower border of the poor tortured shifter. and so we coulnd't resist to create the super-neo-demo-show... Is it necessary to say that this little show was coded by -me-,or that the mighty musix were composed by robb and programmed by mad max ? just listen to the fantastic drums! Characterset and some of the pic's coming with our neo-show painted by Es.
We think there is a lot of greeting to do:
Hello to mmc(thanx for the demo of spectrum 512,guido!),acc(funny conversations on the phone, weren't they, richard?), dma, ator (what a shit-exec on that saturday night, eh, ator?), 42-crew(bet you can't rip this music like some others ?), hc (nice demo,boys!), srg, css, scc and dca.
What's new at tex? Mad max has done the music from bad cat(he had only 4 days and no notes)and he will do the soundtrack from a game called "jules verne". The titlesong will be a 3-voice digitized tune!
-me- will work on our fantasy-role-playing game, so does Es. Cracking will be done by daryl in the future... And now i'm giving the keyboard over to -me- : hello ! I hope this lousy program will work in a few minutes or i'll get crazy.... luckily there are only few raster interrupts to manage in our game.... movem.l... swap... rte... aaarghh..... So much for this time, folks, read the 'read me.txt' and then we wish you a lot of fun with the super-neo-demo-show!!!

So, from that scroller you can also wonder if this slideshow really have the first digidrum-zik, as Bad Cat also have that. Depending on if Bad Cat was released before or after this one..

open lower border and it uses digidrums :) never seen this one before. > in collection

the first mixed digi chip tune i remember on ST was the intro of the game predator and it was so funky!
