can't say i got a framerate here at all under dosbox :D gonna check it out tomorrow on my xp machine.
Wow, it's like a demo, even with a logo.

Great job and the logo roxx !
Now you can make a beautiful 3d rendered chess mixing it with BootChess :-)

Logo, sound, 3d, 256B, wtf?!

could not wait ^^

the logo is very nice but i think the the "jump" of the colors from bright to dark is not so good even if you get some nice moments like in the screenshot. I'm not talking about the technical side since I guess you would have a nice palette if 256b had more bytes to use :D

thumbs up for including a cool looking logo (on the pure visual/audio side I like Abductee a lot more ... but that was a different job) which adds a demo feeling to this intro :)

impressive for 256b!
Nice, but you could have made the screen tearing less harsh on the eyes by using pastel colours rather than monochromatic B&W, or jazz it up by using a pair of complementary colours.

MIDI, good 3D and a high-res logo all in 256 bytes? Amazing!

don't get me wrong : thelogo is complete rip-off Zaxxon game right?

btw this is impressive. i would have prefer something with less features (sound and such) and more polished result.

Tomaes, please see pouet BBS thread entitled DOSBox fork for retrocoding and emulation accuracy about issues with DOSBox's real time clock handling. You probably need a fast computer for DOSBox, elsewise I recommend vmware with XPSP3 image.

how the heck did you manage to fit a logo in there?

@grgh, logo encoding :

Code: ; pi/4 vector line encoding ; first : number of line segments ; second : 2 bytes letter origin ; third : 3 bits direction + 5 bits length =>max(len(line))=32 ; ; 7 0 1 ; \ | / ; \|/ ; 6 -- -- 2 directions ; /|\ ; / | \ ; 5 4 3 ; ; total : 70 bytes
great 256b

Awesome 256b.

256b with 3D scene *AND* music? Are you kidding me?! Works flawlessly in VMware 10 + XP SP3.

Rendering seems a bit buggy but I can't really be bothered by that given the fact that it's 256b and has "music" *and* some proper 2D graphics (even if it's just a text logo).

Baudsurfer, you are (positively) kkkrazzzzyyy, dude !

Please release as BITS again already, atleast my Glöps had some negative value to counter my positive Personality towards everything...concerning Demos...resulting in 99.9% upthumps! ;)
For real: nice, but do sth really new already, this is permutation #13 of the same effect...gets boring...#14 gets a pig...#15 gets some anarchist thumbDown, just to remind you! :p
