A demonstration for the top of the line EGA graphics adapter.
Lines forming the name RAX spin around in 3D amongst a moving starfield, while the colour pallet cycles through a whooping 4096 colours!!!!

Amazing for '87.... but VGA was in wide use at the time...
Strange :)

btw it would be new to me that vga was in "wide use" at that time... my first pc was a back-then top notch tulip 286 from 1989, and it still had EGA...

The oldest production I had found on Hornet. It must not be a demoscene production, but still it's interesting for such an old time..

it's okay (especially for the date!!). 4096 colors apparently done by dithering, which i would still call 64 colors.
vga was released in 1987, i remember even in 1989 you had to pay _big_ bucks for vga.

Changed release year from 1986 to 1987.

Cool, it even runs on WinXP and a DX9 Card, in a quite normal speed of course. \o/

A relic :) I'm too young to have ever owned an EGA though..

Cool stuff for 1987!
I *really* thought I had a version of this that came with the source but after looking through all my files I don't know anymore.
