Gosh, I really need a C4CPC now : :picard: , Winape is probably not the best way to see this great production.

Most of the effects are really great (I especially like the tunnel !), the only one that does not convince me is the "big dots balls" (little ones are far better). One transition is weak too (dots to the guy I would not meet in a dark street). This picture would had deserved a better way to be displayed.
 
Music is really nice, that's a little miracle to hear Zik's DMA tracker tunes :-).

Congratulation to all the guys involved in this top rated demo !

Excellent demo! And thanks or not making 64K-tape-only thing out of it! It's fantastic to see what the Plus and 128 KB can do!!! Actually it would be nice to use some of the shown effects for a game too. You guys should consider making one.  :)

the 3D tunnel has a low memory footprint, may be reused for a shoot em'up with hardware sprites?  ;D

Very nice production ! I really like the whole effect and music is very good (hope the DMA tracker will be available soon).


Great job !

It's really nice to see some prods that makes use of the Sound DMA capabilities of the plus series...

Well done  :o

Both of these productions are stunning! Having owned a Plus since they launched in 1990 this validates all I hoped they were capable of if only given the time and success in sales!

Completely agree. Fantastic productions and I'm really exited about the music. More, more more !!!!!!

About our demo, i gave one year to Zik to finish his soundtracker DMA. And he did it!  :o


I understand there is some ergonomics to polish in order to release an official version


He also made the replay routine, adapted from the AYC player of Madram


The use of the SID sounds requires a few bytes in the first 64K, that's why we play SID in the demo whereas there is almost 64K of GFX in video memory during the ondulation+vector ballz FX

The CPC+ seems our trump card to win the battle against fanboys of any other 8 bit platform :)
There was very little material to show, but thanks to these marvels that are coming out lately (Eerie Forest, GnG, this...), things are changing...

Thanks and congrats to those involved in the devs!

I just registered on the forum to congratulate you...amazing and inspiring demo on our good old 8bit! I'm so happy there is more and more activity on the CPC again and it has inspired me to try and start writing songs again (I think we can also thank Rhino for the motivating text in his demo!!). The song in the demo is great. Can you tell me how it was written, did you use Arkos tracker and how did you get the SId type sounds? I would really love to create some songs with this SId effect where the waveforms do not sound square. I'm guessing you used DMA for the samples but is the SId effect possible for the regular CPC when composing using Arkos tracker?


Thanks again,


Sice

Happy to Read you loved the song composed by zik/futurs !
But you have to Know that this great song has been  composed using this own soundtracker (still in dev) called the soundtracker dma. (Plus only!)
You will have to wait to use it!
But... but.... but, As long i know, arkos tracker 2 uses sid voices too! Targhan could confirm, maybe?
Just ear "the last v8" song made by targhan.

Like AST said, Zik used his own sountracker DMA which is supposed to be released in 2018 (before spring?)


The player use DMA for SID and samples so the CPU usage is small (7% cpu)


To play SID on first generation CPC you have to use a 100% cpu player (or make your own tricky routine but that's a LOT of work)


ps: Be warned that the soundtrack DMA is a CPC+ programm which is not properly emulated (due to lack of precision)

No SID for Arkos Tracker 2! Not before a looong time :) . However, a CPC Plus player would certainly be not-so-hard to do.

Post by: Sice on 17:36, 29 November 17
I've never used a plus, I think I will stick to regular old CPC and use samples instead. Can't wait to try it but it might not be until January next year when I have my HD back (had a hard drive crash!)

The GX4K is indeed the phattest Angus! ^_^
Amiga demo in fat pixel = awesome demo!

Well done to all involved! A really amazing demo for one of the most the underrated formats, the GX4K console!

Sorry but the demo won't run on a GX4000, only a 6128+ will be ok (or a 464+ with RAM7 memcard, the only one to be fully compatible with CPC+ models)

You will need a true CPC+ memory card (except RAM7 memory expansion, i don't know another one...)
EDIT: Oups, i miss the keyboard problem  ;D
