hello i am back on my cpc with a good news for you all, i made a little intro that i will release in revision party in some weeks. my intro is not a revolution but i enjoyed to do it. also i want to thank the special guest that helped me a lot. you will discover who he is in the intro.
i hope that other cpc demo groups will release something in revision. benediction, vanity, impact or other? 

Bug Powell

Bug Powell

Great to know! Waiting to watch your production for the Revision event.

Hi,

I always love to see new productions for the CPC, especially if it's a demo. I would say, the response of 4 likes is pretty good for a production we haven't seen yet - as I saw responses on already released stuff with fewer reactions. I don't know why the overall response on demos here is low - that would be a discussion on it's own - I think the majority of poeple is more interested into games. If you want to do a game, endless threads will almost be guaranteed, and you can even talk about it for years before it's done.

Demos belong to the category of art. So, thumbs up for doing art!

PS: I initially also wanted to release for Revision, however I coundn't make it in time. Well ... but there's no need to hurry anyway, we are doing it for fun, and I'll add some more parts *sigh*.

I got to say I'm not that interested in demos and even less so ones that I know nothing about and no information is shared, drop some sort of  screen shot a video something and then maybe some interest.

Bug Powell

3 weeks before release! are you all impatient?

gurneyh

It depends. Will there be a scrolling text in French?  ;D
Seriously, I'm curious to see someone from the c64 producing on cpc. Maybe some fresh ideas?

Bug Powell

actually not so fresh ideas in my intro. it is a first try, do not forget it. but i tried to do the best i could.
@eto : did you want to tell me something?

there is many "line per line" FX missing on CPC

many 2D pattern with only 8 lines for the whole screen (like checker, but also kind of fractal design)
use RASM, the best assembler ever made :p

I will survive

Isn't the so called fractal zoomer (more like feedback effect) done in the latest Benediction demo? ( https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=88554 )

But yeah, there are so many new things that can be done on CPC, when watching demos in other platforms there are so many ideas. Only if I wasn't lazy...

Bug Powell

i will try for my second demo!

Bug Powell

i added a poll for my next intro, please give me your opinion

Bug Powell

at the moment, 3 people want a wave scroller. and 2 people want me to stop the cpc as barjack.

trocoloco

I would like to see what you can do on the CPC coming from the C64. All the best with it. Ánimo

Not sure, why anyone would like to see a black screen. I take this was a joke entry. Out of all these options, I want to see a wave scroller.

While you said, "coma light", I can't resist to post a link to one of my favorite C64 demos from Oxyron: Coma Light 13!

This demo is a example on good demo coding, in my opinion, as it shows that a good demo is not just a video player producing compressed video on the screen, (even though compression and precalculation is used on of all sort of things).

This demo is an unbelievable treasure chest, effects come and go in a 10 sec interval (rough estimate) while running approx. 10 minutes! Unbelievable how much work went into this production. Attention paid to every detail. The whole show is an endless transition of effects, and shows how important it is to do transitions, the result is sooo beautiful ....

The only ugly part is the hardware of the C64 that just can't produce beautiful colors. So if you would do any of effects on the CPC, it would look better just because of nicer colours.

5 people want me to stop cpc... it makes me sad.
@Barjack, @TotO, @Gryzor, what do you think about my poll? what did you answer?

once you proof that you actually release something that is worth watching, people will probably start voting for other options. 2 weeks to go, then we finally see what until now is just vaporware. (btw: I did not vote, I'm waiting for the Revision release).
