Guys, thanks alot for the comments. This gave me a smile too :)

I'm glad people enjoyed this release and took that "20 years ago style" like it was intended...

Let's see if more stuff like this is possible. By the way, if somebody can help out with some more funk/jazz music - I'm open to have a talk. :)

sweet! those samples remind me of some tune by pink :)

Some real A500-goodness. I think this one deserved first place to be honest.

I quite like it, nicely put together

Neatly styled fx in spot on colour scheme. I believe the filled sinewaves are the proof that you and Mr. Blitter came to terms on the fill issue, right ?
If the whole thing wouldn't be so short.
On another note I did find the tune a bit clanky.
rulez added on the 2013-09-19 21:32:23 by d0DgE d0DgE
to dodge: nope... no blitter filling.

What is "a bit clanky" supposed to mean? If you like people to understand your comments drop that slang stuff and speak clearly.

If the whole thing wouldn't be so short.

You gotta be kidding, man! You are releasing single-screen-intros but my several-part-intro is so short? Well, thanks for sharing that, pal. This ain't useful - it's just pissing me off...
added on the 2013-09-20 11:37:01 by kwe kwe
clanky ain't useful

Out of tempo notes and sample loops just "kinda, sorta" matching up doesn't make a song "funky". And there's that cymbal sample. "Kloff". And some of the instruments being off-key. Hope that's useful.

The copper for the half framerate blue/red sine part causes modulo errors on a real A500. The compatibility otherwise seems fine!

Pulling off a bunch of standard effects juuust good enough to result in what would've been a fairly mediocre release back in 94, while it just feels a bit meaningless now.
That said, it's a complete package and in my opinion would've deserved the 2nd prize in the compo. (While the winner had even less fun effects it at least had something more interesting to watch thanks to the excellent pixel graphics).
k.w.e., calm down, pal and notice the thumb ;)
The note on "too short" was rather a compliment then a criticism. I would've loved to see some of the scenes for a few seconds longer. The tune, however, wasn't my cup of tea, personal taste, that is. From my watching perspective it just didn't flow all that well with the rather dynamic effects.

You are releasing single-screen-intros

What's wrong with that ? I love doing these, nowadays called, "cracktros".
It has become a somewhat crew-tradition of showing a life sign, and they are supposed to be nothing else but small compo fillers.

Photon: Indeed, it wasn't that easy to play that mod. But listen to this: all the mods from Fairbank I'm using are atleast 15 years old and there are difficulties. All the mod-playing routines I could find, I tried them all and there were problems in all of those "playing-attempts". What the reason is, well, it would be interesting to know. So, I have used the player which plays it as close as possible to the original.

Besides, there is no "half framerate blue/red sine part". Everything works on full framerate, how did you come to that conclusion?

Dodge: This intro was made to use the music, which I like. The intention was to keep it running in a nice speed without getting bored. So, if it was really too fast for you - run it again :)

About the mod itself: it's all a matter of taste and everybody is entitled to it. Furthermore, we have been talking about my tiny basket of mods, remember? It's not like shopping in the mall and picking from a huge variety - it's rather taking what I can get, or no music at all.

I like cracktros. It just came up through some different definition of "short".

All the mod-playing routines I could find, I tried them all and there were problems in all of those "playing-attempts". What the reason is, well, it would be interesting to know.

What kind of problems? The most common bugs in about 90% of all "standard" replayers are:

- empty dbf loops for DMA wait
- byte write to volume register which causes problems on 68040/60

Some older replayers also use SMC to set the speed which can cause problems on fast machines too.

The first mentioned bug is responsible for samples not played back correctly but it can be easily fixed with a raster wait loop (or CIA if none of the CIA timers are used otherwise). The second problem can be easily fixed too but that should be obvious.

Music was weird, but lovely oldskool style demo. Nice!

Stingray: I have tried ThePlayer6.1a, ProRunner2.0 and finally used Protracker3.0a replay. Problems were mostly playing in the wrong speed and/or skipping samples.

Those possible reasons you have described, I never analyzed those replay routines. Just tried different mods for testing and those mentioned problems did not appear with every mod, and that didn't made it easy to figure out where the problem is.

Well, sooner or later I might have to face that same mod problem again :( Can we get in private contact?
added on the 2013-09-22 17:25:14 by kwe kwe
Skipping samples: empty dbf loops for DMA wait as mentioned above.
Wrong speed: probably caused by using a standard vblank instead of CIA timed replay.
