Title: GRAPHIC CITY by Ubisoft
Post by: ComSoft6128 on 12:14, 03 September 21

French graphics package from 1986 for the 464 & 6128 which allows the user to design sprites and also create animations.
Now this is running on a Plus and that apparently has caused the program some problems - a number of menu options cause the Plus to reset and one other later option causes the program to lock completely. However, there is still enough left to demonstrate how good the output could be.
Please note that the animation that starts at 2:22 loops at the 55 second mark and finally completes at 13:11, also the program locks between 15:39 to 16:35.

Pretty interesting for 1986 I'd say.
