GX8K by Dirty Minds
« on: 01:00, 23 May 21 »

I've just prepared the final version of my entry for Shadow Party, both CPC+ dsk and GX4000 cartidge.

It was my first attempt to do a demo exclusively for the CPC+ (and GX4000 included) and initially I was planning a 4k, but Buckethead's music already put me in an edge there (so he made a second part music when I said I am going for 8k now :) . I had inspiration for some other better effects that didn't make it here (an inspiration that came to me after watching tons of Amiga AGA early demos :) but because of size, time pressure, lack of motivation I had to scrap some ideas. I'll work on these ideas in a bigger plus demo.

There is a link on Pouet for DSK and CPR versions (but also the party version before I added the full scrolltext) and soon also youtube capture.

p.s. great party compo, there were at least two other CPC intros which I liked too.

I see @Optimus has already made his own video:


Emulated?

Yes, it is emulated of course. I don't know how to capture from real CPC, what kind of hardware needed. Are your videos actually capture directly from a real CPC?

Hi @Optimus ,


I use the OSSC and Hauppauge Rocket to record video from a 6128 or a 6128 Plus.
This will record maybe 1/2 of the demos I have tried it with which is a major pain in the nuts.

I'll have a look later today and see what the result is.

The result is not satisfactory so I would not normally publish this on YT.

Interesting, there are some artifacts on the right side. And scrolltext font popping up on the right side. I guess, this is a hidden area in my real CPC monitor or emulator.
