music was ace on this, shame it didn't get shown until the next day, i think it would have placed a lot higher.

Yeah, I enjoyed this once it was finally working too :) Good gfx / effects and tune.

Like Roudoudou said :-). Main effect seems to be a cpc conversion of Benediction 30 years part, with some Plus adds. Music fits with the demo and is technically well done, but the main voice is not my cup of tea (even if that's better in the second part). Grafix are from a CPC newcomer and are cool, nice skull !

So, that's a deserved thumb up for the Benediction team !

Nice effects and it's good to see a Amstrad Plus demo again :-)!

Thanks for the feedback.

About the technical side:
1. Rubber-bars are made by changing 15 inks. Only the Red and Blue components are changed (1 byte). The Green component is the same for all the colors. So there are potentially 256 colors in these rubbers.
2. The foreground bars are made with the same technic but with 10 colors changed in the hard-sprites (2 sprites for a bar). The first line of the 6 hard-sprites is automatically repeated thanks to the 1-line rupture (R4=0 and R9=0) There are potentially 256 other colors in these vertical bars!
3. Changing all the 15 + 10 colors and the offset is done every 3 lines.
4. 64 steps of rotation for rubber-bars and 64 steps for the vertical bars.
5. The whole is moving with a MODE 0 pixel-precision thanks to the smooth scroll ASIC abality.
6. The balls are made with hard-sprites. Nothing special. (Lesson 1: "Sprites for Dummies")

This intro is an improvment for PLUS of one effect in the Benediction's part in the 30 Years Megademo. I decided to make it just after the ReSeT #28, so in about 2 weeks. Thanks to Brink for his music and to Pandafox to have accepted to do all the graphics from scratch in less than a week... ;)
Great effects!, hard to distinguish from an Amiga intro.

Yepa !!! Really nice 64k !

Rulez! Good idea to enhance BND's part/fx from 30YMD, now on 6128+: those colors are so... 16-bit, and great BND logo. Extra kudo for being the 1st intro release post-30YMD.

panning was too much on the left tho.

Like a fullscreen Atari ST prod, amazing. It's also good on the GT monitor, love the depth with the twisters.
