My only semi-complaint is, that hardware is way too powerful for an 8 bit system, but SYNCHRONIZATION is nevertheless a cool demo.

@Johny: I totally agree, especially on the A1200 case. Perhaps its only the C64 scene beeing so strict, that the only valid hardware expansion is a floppy drive. Perhaps I should ask a hardware guy to build a C64 expansion with a few hundred DSP-cores and use the C64 as power-supply for that PC. Just to make the first realtime raytracing demo in full HD on C64. ;o)

Great stuff. So what exactly is the HW config in this, can somebody link / explain what is going on?
rulez added on the 2015-07-07 12:35:49 by visy visy
This is a custom FPGA config for ZX-Evolution board. It supports sprites, tiles, scrollers, color-per-pixel graphics, DMA, blitter, 14MHz CPU clock. All magic - is a carefully selected set of HW features which managed to fit into 2880 LCs of ZXE chipset.
It is ported to Reverse series (also FPGA), Speccy 2010 boards. ZX (exactly Pentagon 512 clone) is taken as a baseline, thus all Pentagon software works on it, hence - ZX category, as soon as here is no separate category for it.
A few bla-bla-bla here. A review by Tero Heikkinen. Also, there's some info in Russian. A short summary of registers here. No datasheet yet, but there are some of code examples.
added on the 2015-07-07 13:00:44 by TS-Labs TS-Labs
visy: also need to say about the sound. There is TurboSound (2xAY: 6 channels) used in this demo, but you can check the soundtrack version for 1xAY (original ZX Spectrum), it sounds same cool, as TurboSound version.

I just want to say, that sound from most of demos for ZX-Evo TSConfig is the same or nearly the same as original ZX Spectrum.

Impressive! Thanks for the explanation.

@Factor 6, yeah! It really feels like oldschool Amiga!

wait a minute... i see no drama but raining cdcs here.
how can this be on zx-alike machine with steroid specs??
must be because this demo is fuckin' ace: pixels, effects, music, pace, everything.
a real team effort and worthy winner. congratz.

because enhanced demos was separated from usual zx spectrum demos.

rulez added on the 2015-07-08 08:48:47 by break break
There must be 4 thumbdowns: for the visuals (childish symmetric composition, random editing and nothing inventive), for faking the platform, for faking the compo result, and for flashmobbing (compare the nicknames with their IRC and their forum).

BTW this "demo" was shown from YouTube at the party as it didn't run on the compo machine.

More thumbs up - more fakes in the future. Decide.

Another nasty trick for gaining popularity:
BB Image
Every ZX Spectrum demo (they run on pentagon and most probably should run on 128k) is in some '8bit' category, while this one is in 'zx demo', yet the platform has nothing to do with ZX (as I said before and will ever say).

lvd zx spectrum demos were placed to 8-bit demo compo corresponding to the party rules/results.

This demo placed to zx demo here by mistake, we need to fix it definitely.

The clip art and random software icons are... really weird. There's something very dated about the design overall too. Nice track though (effective stereo) and I really liked the distorted lines, great palette there. Small thumb.

This demo is very uneven. It has some stretches of newschool, some stretches of right-wing conservative oldschool and it has some stuff which I cannot even begin to categorize. Some of it is cool, some - to me - cringe-worthy. However, this does not matter much.

Propelled by one of the best soundtracks to grace a ZX demo in recent years, this is an absolute blast. The 8 minutes of the actual content fly by without you even noticing. So these guys must be doing something right after all.

I only wish we could do without the platform wars massacre in the comments.

Cease to deceive people ! no relation to the ZX Spectrum 128 , this demonstration is not !!! TS CONF, designed for operation in the Amiga . And the word ZX there is present because Altera has flashed firmware pentagon 128 .

Currently, the ZX Speccy left only two groups : AAABand Group Igil (AAA, tiboh) THE SUPER (CPU, skrju)

Medikoment, what about Kabardcomp, Life on Mars, KPACKU and others?
added on the 2015-07-17 05:30:00 by diver diver
Kpacku - второй год подрят делают начало и конец. Без середины. Это не серьезно.

Кабарда - ))) Если взять Хоой программ и отрезать Хоой, будет группа кабарда. Пока нет ни одного продукта который я бы мог вспомнить. Уровень Аера, не более.

Лифе он Марс. не знаю такой группы. Нечего вспомнить.

Значительных групп две. банада и супер. Все остальное шелуха.
ну не знаю. по минимуму - Down от Life on Mars моя любимая, а BB в своё время меня сильно поразила сложностью исполнения.
А KPACKU делают офигенные вещи - как гифты, так и серьёзные демы.
Очень высокий уровень у обеих групп, это, можно сказать - лучшие группы в это время на спектруме.
added on the 2015-07-17 22:54:39 by VBI VBI
the only real spectrum is Zx Spectrum 48, currently the ZX Speccy left only two groups: Gemba, Хоой, Conscience, Noice.

A platform is artificial when it's hacked in a garage by a nerd, sold in amounts less than thousands, and used only by other nerds only to make demos.

This is a custom FPGA config for ZX-Evolution board. It supports sprites, tiles, scrollers, color-per-pixel graphics, DMA, blitter, 14MHz CPU clock.

I fail to see how this is a ZX Spectrum demo. It was a nice demo, don't get me wrong, but wouldn't this go into a Wild category instead?

Never mind, saw the entire "ZX Spectrum Enhanced" discussion. Erhm...

Cool I guess, but I'm not too hot on the visuals/style.
