Title: Locomotive BASIC - 7-Seg by Bruno Le Bourhis (BLB)
Post by: ComSoft6128 on 09:24, 12 June 21

1990 program from the French "Microzine"  fanzine/disczine.
A shorter countdown, say 10 seconds, would make an excellent intro for a game or demo.
To give the impression of a larger/full screen both the background ink and border are the same "colour" - in this case black has been used but white was just as popular in slideshows etc.

Already done in the Amazing demo for loading parts or in The Demo's built-in copier.  ;D
