Awesome demo, respect!

+ amount of content
+ music sync
+ the coke part
+ sprite multiplexer

- using extra RAM and not being open about it in the compo
- some screaming coder colors

If this indeed is using the 128 bytes extra RAM of the F8SC cartridge, I can see that there might be some controversy. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it seems to have been more or less an unwritten rule for VCS demos so far to only use the built-in 128 bytes RAM.
It will be interesting to see where the VCS can be taken if extra RAM usage is adopted.

With that out of the way, very nice demo, especially loved the "Coca cola"-bar, looked awesome.

Minor nitpicks:
The very first interlaced image of the face looks good in emu, but on my 2600jr it seems like the sprite positioning is off by a pixel.
No greetings to Noice? :( ;)

Exactly what Kylearan said. Regarding extra RAM: This was designed to be released at Revision, where the rules allow every physical medium that fits for the maschine. So extra RAM is fair for me in this case, because typically even Amiga demos compete in the same compo here at Revision. So this is the "best VCS demo with extra RAM", a new VCS category "F8SC" and an outstanding one man dedication & effort for the machine.

For SillyVenture it's a different story and there extra RAM is explicitly not allowed since it's a VCS only compo. So see you there in the VCS Fight Club!

VCS is a bitch, rulez thumb is obvious. Apparently not obvious enough to the voters(!)
rulez added on the 2014-04-21 01:48:22 by Photon Photon
Awesome technical improvements of course. Get a better designer for the next one (and the music department could use some work). Had some impressive moments in any case, like the coke part.

Cool!
rulez added on the 2014-04-21 10:21:20 by Emod Emod
So 128 bytes extra... Well if other demos didn't need it. I admit I compared this to other VCS demos I had seen, and learning afterwards that it needed extra RAM is kind of a disappointment.

Btw "extra RAM" reminds me of a certain Amiga demo that had been made with/for WinUAE and 1 gigabyte of RAM and, "surprisingly" wouldn't work very well on the compo machine that had an actually possible amount of RAM.

I really wish I could have made it to your seminars too as I was really looking forward to them, but sadly had to finish off my demo instead... But I grabbed them off the ftp site and will be watching too!

Sure, this demo runs on a beefier VCS setup than usual, but still it's very restrictive. But hey, those graphics are very high-res thanks to more memory and draws a lot of inspiration from C64 demos (obviously), but that's not a bad thing :)

Nice demo, yes where next for VCS! :) seriously all this extra RAM comments.. not exactly a huge expanse an extra 128b is it?? If they stick 1MB of Ram then we are talking another category! ala 130XE with ultimate 1MB

Worthy Winner! Altho i liked kylearans firstie almost as much as this!
Anyway, welcome onboard! Next show em what you can do without the extra-RAM at SillyVenture! ;)

Thanks for the kind comments. They really make the two years of work worthwhile. I also updated the homepage linked by the QR code at the end. It now contains some views behind the scenes. It still is a work in progress, but already worth a visit: http://xayax.net/bang!/

Pretty ugly and little more than a miscellaneous collection of effects, but the sound is excellent, which warrants a thumb. Except I'll still retract it for that inane still pic toward the end.

zden, the limited cartridge production run already happend on the release: 8 carts. But if you really want one you can order one on Atari Age using their custom cart option.
