Works on Amstrad CPC 6128 CRTC 0/1.
Beware, no emulator manages to make it work properly (a little work for cngsoft ;). Artifacts galore.
If you want to make a video, capture it on the real hardware.
Thanks & see you in our next production! Not on forums.

Comme c'est fin et coloré... C'est vraiment très joli graphiquement, on aura jamais si bien ailleurs ;)

+1 Pour la zik de Madram.
+1 Pour les gouts littéraires de Hicks.
+1 pour l'ameublement Suédois.

Assurément le scroller en mode 2 le plus mignon de la scène!
Bisous

Mi-gnon?

Naaahhh, c'est CLASSE, beaucoup trop de couleurs dans ce mode 2 et j'ai toujours pas compris pourquoi le GA coince comme ça, mais apparemment ça doit se savoir dans les hautes sphères
Grouik!

Great stuff, once again! :clapclap:
Everything is top-notch here, from the Logon loading logo (that's a real tongue twister) to the choice of the font type in the scroller.
Well done, Vanity.

I'll go back to commenting news on the forums now, waiting for the next BG game.

Loved this amazing first part and the main colored diagonals. I focused on that great scroll as well. Wait, 1 nop, damn... It makes me think to one ST demo with a smaller split than usual. Great tune and gfx.

Really nice as usual. I will wait a bit before disassembling, but I vote for something related to multimode for the scroller. Probably for the raster bars too ; they seem less blocky than they should be
First time since years the scroller is readable ;) Congrat for that too

Bravo les gars! J'aime vraiment ce logo dans la capture d'écran et aussi les rasters diagonales de la deuxième partie de la demo.

Colors madness directed with good taste. Bravo! Also, nice music adaptation by Madram!

Nice! There's quite some things to figure out! Also, the demo seems to run without problems in Winape, while there's indeed too many glitches when using CPCEC.

ça va vous perdez pas encore trop la main. De belles palettes, le scrolltext mode2 est fluide, lisible et long quand même... probablement un peu technique à faire aussi.

It is impossible to vote positively for a production whose lyrics are, at best, caricature and obsessive bashing, and, at worst, personal attacks aimed at those who are not part of the approved fan club.

This group should be called Modesty; it would be more in tune with the smileys placed behind every one of their empty boasts and moral lessons.

@BSC : Sorry to hear that you didn't like our demo. I would have liked to have at least an opinion on the music and the rasters. (I forgot each time we met we spoke in english) ;)

The demo has already been hacked on CPCRulez (where is my lawyer?) and the text can be read quietly by clicking on the "+"

full text with our sincere greetings.

I really like the One Screen Colonies format, dedicated to technical achievements never seen before! That is the proof the CPC always have something fresh to show today. Good effort to put some english text at the beginning for retired CPC demosceners not understanding what's going on.
rulez added on the 2022-03-24 16:55:58 by TotO TotO
This is not a "technical achievement never seen before" : It's a mode "R" effect which has been used in a Batman Group demo years ago.

Nevertheless the 2nd part of this intro is quite eye-catching to me, although it might have been worked on a little bit.

Unfortunately, as usual when it comes from Vanity, they are very agressive and condescending in their scroll texts. One of the people "greeted" into this intro told me he's filing a complaint against them.

This intro runs only on 1 CPC on 2 because they haven't managed to be compliant with every Amstrad CPC, justifying themselves this way : "Why should we make our demos run on the low-quality hardware of an ungrateful public ?". Just think, Vanity : You may earn or deserve gratitude, not claim for it ! And please don't hide your incompetence in CRTC adaptation under some kind of "elitist" considerations.

Your scrolltexts are absolute rubbish. You are turning 40, dudes, why do you keep acting like 14 yo kids ?

Seems to mostly work in Retro Virtual Machine 2.1.0 Patreon BETA 2

Cool effects, nice music. Can't read the scroller but probably for the best?
a bit disapointed by the quality of this prod - especially from an 'elite' groupe. Pressing a key to skip parts? ripped game music? in 2022? really?
Plus offensive messages towards sceners (is it the only vanity signature remaining?) . Sorry but for me, it's a bored piggy

Thumb up for scroller. Real gentlemen handle disputes in boxing ring or especially in scene case; in another yet better scroller. In english translation i can't even notice anything offensive. Only lies are offensive and they can be conquered with truth (the better scroller mentioned earlier).

Piggie for now anyway as i'm waiting for a video like a real lamer.
added on the 2022-03-25 17:35:28 by Serpent Serpent
Strooki should be proud! (or filling a complain? :)

Technically weaker than OSC#1 imo, which incidentally (or not) makes all the bragging even funnier (genius! :). Can't say I'm fond of the melody in the main part, but there are neat sounds in it. Yet a well polished and enjoyable tribute/release.

Ok, so my thumb-down as probably a bit unfair. Sorry for that. If I could take it back, I would turn in into a piggie, though, because I stand by critique(!) of the french problem. But the pouet comment section is not the best place to discuss that.

Cool diagonal raster and music! Looking forward to reverse-engineer how the diagonal raster bars are made.
added on the 2022-03-26 12:20:44 by BSC BSC
I was mainly a guest for this production, so commenting and thumbing as such. So sue me. Figure of speech, don't sue me (*).

Great treat met by sweat threats?

Cute loading logo and first wink (wink nudge nudge).
I was really impressed by the introduction page. CPC have no hard sprites, folks.
The mode 2 resolution makes it soooo fluid on the real machine (you may be able to emulate that next decade with 8k screens).
With the splits record and the splendid logo, that's a good slap in the face.
Re-re-used game music: call it hommage, appeal to nostalgia, denseness revealer, too bad it's not a pimped re-interpretation like in OSC#1.

Part 2: I almost failed to understand how they did it (that's pretty rare on CPC)! Very clever.
Very beautiful scroll and bars. Yet, missed opportu(va)nity to do more with them (shaded, perspective, ...). That's not a 4k, guys!

Start of music is a bit trashed. Different portamento handling between in-tool and external player? Soundtrakkker 128 had a similar issue!
I guess it's only fair, simply karma speaking, as I used to corrupt Shap's tunes.

I believe the OSC bet is fully won: substantiel despite the one-screen constraint, frequent enough to shake the scene.
OSC#2 also managed to pull up this sweet old-school flavour. Unexpectedly more successful than planned? It's even including the drama!
I wonder whether people overreact because they have too few problems in their life, or too many?
I'd love to see technical overreactions, over-technical reactions, aka "make a demo about it".

Take care, doesn't sweat the small things, and as some Logon member used to say: take it easy!

(*) On the other hand, now I'm eager to see the result of the trial. "Snarky demo-comments every two years considered proto-cyber-bullying. 14 years of prison required".

Thanks for this demo. I really like stroke's tribute ! (intro part)
Thumb up for Graphics and solid code.
I Don't really care about scrolling drama. It's a shame to see people trying to do something and and receive nauseating comments in return.

So I read @Longshot's post on cpcwiki.eu,

Quote:
For example, the greetings addressed to Sébastien Broudin (aka Candy) are actually a moralising allusion to certain sexual practices he engaged in, which is a gross infringement of his privacy.


This made me actually read the scroll text to the end and well... The corresponding part is:
Quote:
Candy: on préfère le côté obscur de la force au côté sordide de la fesse


French is my mother tongue and well I can assure you I have no idea what it's all about. This could be anything: from behaviour while being drunk to sexual practice punished by the law.

Quote:
Personally, I find this reference in the demo utterly despicable. It reminds me of my own experience 10 years ago, when the same group of people set up a CPC portal on which satirical and humiliating drawings of me were distributed, and on which my sexual orientation was forcibly exposed without my consent.
.

Not picking any side here. There's something between you @Longshot and Vanity. And you're definitely targeted by the scroll text but in terms that are not infamous. Could that have been discussed / settled without revealing people's identity?
It is probably true that especially non-french don't know the things going on with this, but at least now everyone knows the real names of hicks and beb!
added on the 2022-03-26 20:22:37 by Serpent Serpent
Infringement of his privacy is done by people who claim to be his side

that's surrealist...
added on the 2022-03-26 21:37:32 by roudoudou roudoudou
Liked what I've seen, works fine on my real CPC.

First part, it's impressive the number of sprites over split rasters, so smooth!

Second part, diagonal rasterbars are wow, I see this R technique that moves half mode 0 pixel is used, to make it look like mode 1 with full 16 colors. I guess also palette changing and/or vram offset per line? Wonder if a future improvement of the effect could also rotate those rasters in realtime (like the latest Benediction demo does with the kefren bars)

Thumbs up just for the demo not taking any position about the scrolltext, since the it is in French anyway, I don't even understand or care about the drama.

French scroll thumb!
A good intro and a better challenge: the second half relies on the LA-7800 chip and it took a while till I got CPCEC to emulate it properly.
rulez added on the 2022-04-17 22:38:38 by cngsoft cngsoft
The whole thing is very polished with the classic Vanity quality ;) Solid code and great combination of colors.

One suggestion if I may: It would be great to do not limit your messages only for French-speaking users. We are already not that many CPC users around...

Nice style, and funky because I cant run this on using the OSSC, so the old CM8833 had to be brought out. Please do realize that not everyone can follow French scrollers; but the screen was nice!
