Locomotive BASIC - Stars Digital by Amstradebdo
« on: 16:13, 04 September 21 »

Short French slideshow from 1987 released by 'Amstradebdo' magazine which uses digitized screens compressed from the standard 17K down to the 10K to 13K range.
Program is Listed at end of video.
Doesn't seem much does it?
But unlike today, where we live in a world awash with free images (never mind video), in 1987 you had very limited options when it came to acquiring CPC screens to work on with your art package or slideshow or whatever. Indeed two or three of these screens can be found in later slideshows from PD libraries.
