It's been released, and it looks good!

Personally, I like the parts of Shinra, Benediction, Futurs, and Vanity, though that's not set in concrete and might change.

Awesome job! Well done to ALL teams involved..
Better late than never!

Futur's part and Longshot's (did I see correctly?) for me look great. The menu is terrific!!

Another milestone in demoscene IMHO!!!

Must try on real machine though ASAP..

Wow, I got my name featured in a demo! :o Shame that the part was originally written in 2014 and hasn't been updated, and I'm no longer an active member of the CPC scene, but it still gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside. :)

So far, I've only tested the demo on WinAPE, and for some reason, I can't view Futurs' and Vanity's parts, even when I set the CRTC to type 1. I don't know why the CRTC detection isn't working? I know there are problems with detecting CRTC 2 in WinAPE, but I didn't think CRTC 1 would be a problem. Fortunately my real CPC has a type 1 CRTC so I will try to test it tomorrow. There seemed to be problems with disc side detection on WinAPE, even when I used the double-sided DSK file.

Having watched all the parts on YouTube, I was most impressed with Benediction's 'Quest for Perfection', Futurs' and Vanity's parts. I was amazed to see four old demos running simultaneously in one screen! :D

Oh, seems to be 6128 exclusive. Schande ...

It's 128k, but CPC464 with expansion seems to work (emulated). Nice !

Winape should not properly emulate a CRTC1. If you want to properly watch the demo on an emulator, you have only two choices :
 - cpcbox
 - ace

Ensure to remove the fast disc emulation on winape ; we have not noticed issues on it (however I have modified some piece of code to hide a bug in winape fdc code)

It will be a good thing to tell about this bug to Richard Wilson. Maybe it will be easy to correct.

I don't agree with modifying code to make it work on an emulator.

You already stated which emulators you say will run it correctly and others need to fix their emulation to make it work.

I have tested it on Arnold and seen a couple of problems which I will fix.
(CRTC1 not detected correctly, some distortion scrolling down on the main menu. These will be fixed and a new release of Arnold will run it much better :) ).

EDIT: Keep pushing us with great demos :)

One of my laptop's speakers is broken, so I won't be watching it just yet. I cast the vid to the TV, but the quality is nowhere near good enough... is there a proper video anywhere?
