why? [script for demo]
kq\skrju, 30.apr.2003
i grabbed a pice of paper,
Thrust it into the pocket,
And run after myself.
i was puffing.
always looked back,
move, move.
i stared at the wall.
they say i'm freak,
someone think i'm perfect,
move, move.
i teared off my jacket,
threw it into the garbige can.
I was a muddlehead,
worms were stiring in my head,
what for?

It's a pitty I couldn't run it in emulators ;P
I tried to RUN Why?.B through TRD (After a lot of trial and error to find out which the hell is the key combinations for " and ? and I also had to remember how I could work in TrDos) and I got a reset in speccy basic :(

"hey crew, im depressed, let's do a pseudopoetry demo, on some ancient computersystem!"
optimus! we're sorry, there is a mistake, co you should enter basic128, type "USR 0", then you'll fall into basic, then type "randomize usr 15616" and then "RUN "Why?". [randomize is on the key T, and to get USR you should push caps_shift+symbol_shift and then key L]

speedy>> it's because we used to do stuff for ZX. we like this machine. why don't you ask Dekadence or anyone why do you still make demos for C=64? it's the platform of our childhood. [and as soon as we'll learn PC we'll try to make demos with it, oh for sure]

"Design" demos might look boring on PCs, but hehe looks impressive on spectrum machine ;). I remember the last time I had seen a replayish thing on speccy, don't remember how it's called.
I would prefer there would be more effects in this one, not just the same screen with the poetry..

i am not so interested in poetry maybe that is the reason why i see nothing interesting in this demo. one fx in many variations...:(((

its kind of better and more interesting than skrju's previous tries in "quest for modern speccy demo" =)

but its still rather boring and static (apart from text'n'flashes, that is..) + just look at the screenshot, this style is POP already cause we've seen such design zillionz of times..

poem seems to make sense (or not but its not annoying anyhow) but i dont like poetry at all and cliche design + one fx doesnt make up a good demo.

Personally I don't like black and white text demos with noise gfx.

slick design
