Chip-on-cartridge was the impression, 4MB is the filesize. I'll have a detailed look tomorrow but consider a writeup to appease platform fans.

does it break because of the 6MB limit most emulators put on bank-switching?
added on the 2017-04-16 11:25:42 by the_Ye-Ti the_Ye-Ti
no, it breaks because we accidently found a new undocumented hardware register in the chips. (forgive my technical lack of information , i just place pixels on the screen )

A good team work, better than Overdrive. Nothing technicaly impressive for this system compared to the 2D effects shown ingame in the 90's. Most of FXs look like to push data from the huge 32Meg ROM: for zoom, rotations, etc. Any systems with a large storage could do that.
added on the 2017-04-16 12:26:05 by TotO TotO
best megadrive prod ever !
rulez added on the 2017-04-16 13:01:28 by EviL EviL
Tot0: maybe u should download and disassemble the 8MB rom to find out.

Only the music itself already takes up 45% of the 8mb..

This is awesome, really.

First part was great but this really pushes the limits on the MD!
Rotozooms, blending, 3d engine, ... all in fullscreen PAL, insane.
In my opinion, music was also better than in the first one.

Looking forward to getting more info on the undocumented registers!

PS: Played it on an early MD1 model (HD graphics, no TMSS) with a custom flash cart, no issues whatsoever =)

Thanks for the nice feedback, it's been our pleasure to release this demo. Four years ago we realized the function hiding in the VDP, and since then Kabuto has been working continuously to exploit it.. and during which time we only just about managed to keep the secret. Fucking props to my teammates for pushing so hard and getting this finished in time for the compo, didn't see much sleep during the past week :).

Tot0: this ain't just a tile-streamer, there's a huge amount of different approaches used for zooms, rotations etc in this demo. For your interest here's a debug view of our 3D renderer :^)

Holy shit, this is amazing. Kudos to everyone involved.
One question though: what is the exact hardware this is meant to be run on?
I have a very first gen Japanese MD which I modified to run on 50Hz, yet on bootup the demo runs some sort of test with numbers and gives out results citing "mix plane instability" through to "severe". When ran, I notice some glitches in 2 or 3 scenes. I was under the impression since my machine is modified it would run fine, but obviously I am wrong. Or does it have to do with the motherboard revision?

rulez added on the 2017-04-17 20:31:07 by FOSTER FOSTER
Hi! Thanks for the kind words Akira

During the development of this demo we have actually bought about 25 Mega Drive systems to figure out the stability of the debug registers we're using. After some more testing of our good friend Tiido (TmEE) it seems to mostly (almost exclusively) affect 1st generation VDP chips made by Hitachi.

We'll release tech docs in the coming days/weeks after we've fully figured out all of the remaining data we've collected after the release.

PS: It would be an enormous help for our research if you could photograph your MD's circuit board (particularily the VDP chip and its writings) and give us your MD's serial number (written on the bottom side of the outer case).

Thank you!

This is like watching an absolute classic from the golden years of the amiga era.

During the development of this demo we have actually bought about 25 Mega Drive systems to figure out the stability of the debug registers we're using. After some more testing of our good friend Tiido (TmEE) it seems to mostly (almost exclusively) affect 1st generation VDP chips made by Hitachi.


Cool tech demo, I also enjoyed very much reading about its making and its specs.
Just curious, does it work on Blaze Mega Drive hardware clone?

When I saw this masterpiece on the stream, I told myself that I would hold off on watching it until again until I could run it on real HW and a proper CRT.

Well, since it didn't work on my EverdriveMD I finally caved and watched the video (not enough patience to wait for the cart release).

So here's your thumb up, but I still want that cart alien! ;)

Back to the demo - it's really fantastic there is just so *much* going on, non-stop. Quite a lot of things that I'll need to watch it again and try to figure out how the Megadrives graphics hardware is being utilized to get these effects.

Best demo of 2017!

Only minor complaint is that I'm not sure how I feel about using features that isn't compatible with at least all official Megadrives (if the figures 30% of MD1 and 5% of MD2 is correct).

@sdw: Look at it this way: at least these features are now known and well documented ;)
added on the 2017-04-27 23:05:14 by oerg866 oerg866
@sdw: when we realised what we had found in the Mega Drive hardware (a register which enabled layer blending that noone else knew about), we had a choice: make a forum post about it, or make a demo about it. We also knew that someone would discover it at some point. But this awesome opportunity doesn't come every day. So we decided at that moment to do the right thing - exploit this feature and make the best demo that we could to release at a demoparty as soon as possible.

We were also lucky because the hardware we happened to be testing with was one of the MD1s that the feature works correctly on. That was in 2013, and it was only quite a bit later that we realised that some versions of the VDP didn't behave the same - but in my opinion that wasn't a reason to cancel our demo or research. We were close to releasing at Evoke 2016 but finally managed to complete in time for the compo at Revision - see if you recognise the building in the unused scene below :)

Juste a note about (in)compatibilities on older platforms: best CPC demos (Batman Forever Still Rising) won't run on crtc2. Still from CPC top 5 From Scratch runs on crtc1 only. It seems most of people agree with less compatibility for better tricks. :)
@Titan: I'm so glad you made a demo about it!
added on the 2017-04-28 10:20:06 by Overflow Overflow
oerg866, alk : Yes, documenting and doing "world first" usage in such an impressive way of these registers is absolutely a good thing.

There are quite a few other example of demos using non-stable features of chips, VSP on the C64, CRTC-trickery on the CPC etc. It's an interesting topic, maybe I'll start a discussion post about it.
added on the 2017-04-28 10:26:14 by Sdw Sdw
Can't really comment on any of the technical stuff so I'll just say hooray for the perfect pacing. This demo keeps you on the heel for seven minutes and just continues to deliver, a feat that's pretty rare especially in the oldschool arena nowadays. Perfect ending for a Revision saturday night, thanks :)

You know, this kind of demo is not my cup of tea, really. I'm more into high concepts, moods and stuff like that and I kept hoping for something like that for the most part of the demo. But then again... screw that.

I've rarely seen a demo that's such a tour de force in every single department. The code is fantastic, the music is pounding, the graphics wonderful and the direction reminds me of the the heyday of the Amiga scene years ago. Just stellar. I also love how this could be enough content for three demos: effects that are great just by themselves and could be milked for a long time (like the raster 3d flyby thing and the x-rotator) are just discarded after a few seconds to just keep up the pace.

Fantastic.

Anybody knows, if this Demo works on good Clone-Consoles like "Retron 3" or "Super Retro Trio" (from cartridge or from Mega-Everdrive X7) ? I ask just for interest, because nearly all games work on these two clones, but what brings effects, and therefore compatibility, to the limit are the demos.
