Greetings to all Oldschool Sceners!

Heaven: Pleasse have in mind that this is my first C64 scene intro/demo done since ages on Atari 800 platform!
Main idea was to see how my Planet 5200 intro on Atari 5200 console would look like on C64 and how fast the
0,9 MHz 6510 is compared to the 1,77 MHz Atari 6502. :D

Tools used:

PC: Purebasic, WUDSN IDE, MADS Cross Assembler, VICE, Exomizer
the DL link works btw.
a bit of loading, but nice port and yeah DL link works perfectly :)

The gfx didn't really catch me, but the music was great. So thumbs for that!

good song in it. it was launched 3-4 times at the compo so the intro part is etched in our brain for ever.

It seems it has issues with new CIA. I need to look into it.

Not bad but doesn't have anything to latch onto either.

Nice one. Sorry for the compo-show problems. We tested this on at least 3 C64, then we decided to go ahead with the one where it always worked (launched at least 3 times on each). And then it of course failed during the compo. Thanks to Cargo/SGR for the help.

No problem. We tracked down the issue. I got the sprites switched on which screw the 4x4 ini routine. As newbie on c64 I was not aware of that issue with the timing/checks for old/new CIA.

Thanks for trying! :)
what noby said.

It was a bit biggy buggy, but liked it in the end!

Sweet sounding :)

Refurbished code doesn't look refurbished. Music is terser than on 5200. Nice production although still prefer your original.
