I was curious : is it possible to create
something like "rainbox32b" in 16 bytes?

Well, kind of :)

But no ESC support this time ;)

introspec: not too often that another platform can combat these ultra small dos intros :) can you please advise me a good zx emulator, and/or provide a youtube? i'm not sure what to do with this "mini2.sna" and why it's 48 kb ;)

@HellMood, any emulator will do really. Fuse is a popular free multiplatform option: http://fuse-emulator.sourceforge.net/

.sna is a snapshot of all RAM, plus values of CPU registers. The 16 bytes that matter are situated about 16K from the start of the file. Traditionally, tiny intros on Spectrum do not include a BASIC loader; so I suppose you can say this is cheating :) It can be easily done in 32b with the loader.

BTW, the lines in my version are approximately vertical, just like in your starting point.

Thanks, i'll look into it when i have time :) Creating (nongarbage) music in 32b is also a nice challenging idea. Besides Descent OST i also have a (yet to release) 64byte effect with "music", but - as of now - nothing in 32 bytes. Let's see ;)

g0blinish : nice =)

if we don't take it to seriously with the colors, i am down to six bytes for vertical scrolling ;)
